Stayed at this hotel many years ago. Probably more suited to a business traveller as communal areas very open and lacking in character. Rooms were a bit tired but very comfortable. Staff were very good. Biggest disappointment was the meal we had from the ala carte menu, no better than a bar meal. After our experience in the dinning room... More

We stayed here for one night, on business, with several others. The staff at the front desk were quite happy, there was a problem getting into the room, which after 5hours stuck in traffic is the last thing you need! The walk from the room to the reception was quite lengthy, especially after the journey we had had, I was... More

Lots of added small touces, bowl of sweets and apples on the recpetion, great friendly welcome, outside seating area was large and... More

Stayed at this hotel, booked with GB Tours, overnight which included evening meal and breakfast. Everything about the hotel was really nice. Evening meal was a choice of 3 starters, mains and sweet followed by tea or coffee, all of which was excellent. Breakfast next morning was buffet, not as hot as I like it but a wide variety of...

We were very apprehensive going to this hotel after having a dreadful experience at the last Thistle we stayed in. However we couldn`t have been more pleased. Firstly the staff were welcoming and friendly, our room was spotlessly clean as was the whole of the hotel. Comfy beds, good hospitality tray and as for the dining room we couldn`t have... More

I stayed at the Thistle, Cheltenham on a Saturday evening in January 2014. Having booked a Winter deal at around £65 bed & breakfast, my expectations weren't that high, but I was nicely surprised. Check in was pleasant and the man was very friendly & helpful, even assisting with a card for a taxi firm. The public areas looked comfortable,... More

We stayed here 22 March for 2 nights on a package of two nights which included breakfast on boith days and one dinner. The hotel is just off the M5 and easy to access from the A40. It is not a pretty hotel but inside the rooms are comfortable and the staff are extremely friendly and eager to please. The... More
