If you are looking for a good base close to the centre this is ideal. It is a privately run hotel (guest house with a bar) which was clean and had all you would need for a short break or base. The bedroom was big enough with an en suite bathroom with a power shower. The "Star" is the quality... More

This is a very nice hotel centrally located in Cheltenham. The hostess was very welcoming, the room was nicely decorated and the breakfast very good. Unfortunately the downside of the central location was that the rear facing bedrooms weren't too far from the local pub. We stayed here last Saturday night and the noise from the nearby pub was heard... More

Very comfortable small hotel, walking distance from the central bus station (we came by bus from Oxford) and very close to shopping and all the main Cheltenham sights. Excellent breakfast and personnable hosts.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in the standard double and we very much enjoyed our stay. Perfect location with the town being just a short walk away (literally 3 mins slowish pace). hosts are very friendly and helpful. And parked right outside. Will stay again.

This is a very nice B and B in Cheltenham, UK. The location is easy to get to. Parking is on the street which is by permit supplied by your hosts. The streets were busy so we had to park a short distance away but that was not a major problem..the room we stayed in had 2 beds and was... More

Highlight was definitely the breakfast. So long as you're down by 9am you'll be treated to a lovely cooked breakfast by the hosts. Definitely one of the best BnB breakfasts I've had so far and would be delighted to have this at any restaurant. Lowlight was dodgy/patching wifi that kept restarting particularly at weird times. The window in the single... More

Situated within easy walking distance to the centre of Cheltenham. This is the fourth time I have stayed at The Abbey and yet again, another very enjoyable and welcoming stay. The bedrooms are comfortable, clean and have TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The en suite bathroom (shower only) is small. If you arrive by car The Abbey will give you... More

Just stayed one night here with a friend and booked last minute. Booked 2 separate single occupancy rooms as it worked out the same price as a shared room in other hotels. Was worried that it wouldn't be that great but it turned out to be a really nice guesthouse based right in the centre of Cheltenham so everything to... More

Just having breakfast after second night here. Excellent service very friendly. When I called to say I would be arriving they were clearly expecting me, using my name and were very welcoming. Nothing is an issue, finding an umbrella for me on a rainy day. The food is great and location very handy for centre of town. Parking could be... More

Very reasonable rates for this beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean B & B. We found it with help from the Tourist Information Centre in Cheltenham and stayed for 2 nights. The welcome was warm and the facilities and design of the room were well thought out. The breakfast was bountiful and cooked to our liking. Would most definitely stay again when... More
