As previous reviewers have indicated, the grounds and the buildings cannot be faulted. Beautiful and well maintained, although only what I would expect given the 5 star status and cost to stay here. What I also expect is excellent service with a smile, service that greets and makes me feel welcome, service that makes you feel as if nothing is... More

Stayed for 2 nights in mid July. Very fortunate with the weather which allowed for use of the outdoor pool on our second afternoon, a rare delight in this country. Lovely location, beautifully maintained and gererally well presented. Very convenient for Cheltenham itself, but equally well situated to access the Cotswolds area (which we did on our second full day)... More

It was a surprise 50th weekend away for me, my wife and 2 friends. We arrived on Fri afternoon and loved driving to the door and the subsequent excellent valet service - this was great service. We checked into our room in the newer part of the hotel. Fantastic room, comfy bed, great roll top bath and waterfall shower, fresh... More

Taken me a while to write this review, but the memory of how enjoyable our stay was is still strong. Beautiful location, lovely rooms, great service, fantastic food. We went to the races on Jan 1st. We got driven down there and picked up after the final race. Amazing! Breakfast every day, food in the Brasserie and food in the... More

Just stayed here for a week. Hotel and grounds are beautiful. Room was lovely. Staff are very friendly and professional. We also had some treatments in the spa. Highly recommend the collagen facial. The food was very nice. We were also lucky to have such hot weather and be able to use the pool. We took our dog along. Great... More

Called in here on spec looking for a late lunch or possibly afternoon tea. Receptionist was very helpful and went to check what was available while we went to order a drink at the bar. Unfortunately the barman was surly and unhelpful - it seemed an effort to serve us, he failed to help us make our wine choices and... More

Lovely hotel, very well laid out and thought of rooms (copious amounts of plugs which sounds picky but is never available, really well thought of). The food in the main dining room is very average but the brasserie is delicious. The spa pretty average although I had a great therapist (Chelsea). The biggest disappointment was the service. I can rattle... More

We stayed in this 5 star hotel through a jet setter deal . I see secret escapes are also doing a deal - although they have just changed the 2 course meal to the brasserie from the main rosetted restaurant! The hotel is fantastic. The service excellent and the room ( a classic ) large and very comfortable. We had... More
