This was our 2nd stay at the Battledown and if possible was even better than our 1st. It's like staying with really good friends; good friends with a beautiful home and serve a really good breakfast! The home cooked jam & marmalade is a delightful touch to an already hearty breakfast. The room was beautifully decorated, very recently by appearance,... More

When I wrote my first review of The Battledown, I said "We'll be back", and last weekend, we were. After a warm welcome, we tried a different room for this stay, and it was equally fantastic. Sarah was as attentive as ever, the breakfast was brilliant and it enriched our stay (for 2 nights) in Cheltenham. Since we were there... More

We stayed for 3 nights at The Battledown and what a place it is. From the warm and friendly welcome, along with the must appreciated tea and coffee, to the time we had to leave we had an excellent stay. Sarah and Simon seem to have thought of everything to make the stay as enjoyable as possible, with many little... More

This is a faultless, very welcoming, family-run B&B within walking distance of Cheltenham town centre. I'd have no reservation in recommending The Battledown to anyone. Rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent, and the property has lots of small touches that make you feel at home. This will be our first choice for any trips to the city.

I enjoyed staying at the Battledown and recommend this very nice Bed and Breakfast. THe hotel is operated by a very friendly and helpful family. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The Battledown is conveniently located near the heart of Cheltenham. A good breakfast was served each morning.

We stayed for two nights and were very impressed, everything was perfect from the room to the breakfast and the surroundings. Will certainly be recommending to other friends and if we return to Cheltenham will stay again. The beds were comfy and the room beautifully decorated and spotless. There was plenty of secure parking at the rear and a lovely... More

We were visiting our second daughter and young family at nearby Andoversford and chose the Battledown for a three-night stay. This was our second stay at the Battledown and it did not disappoint. We asked ourselves does it truly deserve 5-stars and its reputation as the best in the area? Sarah, the co-owner, welcomed us warmly and gave us tea... More

We stayed here for two nights and couldn't fault anythings. Lovely touches such as the homemade granola, jam and baked beans really made breakfast special. We will definitely be staying here again net time we head up to Cheltenham or the Cotswold
