Easy to find & just a walking distance from the town centre. Perfect place to stay if you want to visit the Cotswolds by day. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very friendly, clean & comfortable with a generous varied breakfast and delicious home made jams. A perfect start to a busy day.

Excellent food, very comfortable bed and room, warm welcome. Wish we had found this place years ago, nothing too much trouble. we have stayed in dozens of B&Bs over the years in Cheltenham, I can say without doubt this one is the best we have stayed in when you consider location, service, cleanliness, helpfulness, and price.

Booked a 'late' 2 night B&B stay at the Battledown - absolutely excellent. Sarah & Simon are hospitable in every way. Rooms decorated to a lovely homely and high standard with everything you may need ...including hot water bottles and slippers!! Nothing at all was any trouble for them. Great breakfast choice. Definitely a place to try when in Cheltenham.

From the moment you walk through the door the welcome and hospitality are second to none. Lovely rooms with thoughtful touches and a breakfast to rival the best. Would recommend without a second thought.

My mum and I have just returned from our fourth stay at The Battledown (6 nights). Sarah, Simon and Isabella are so welcoming and friendly that it feels like a home from home to us now. The breakfasts were amazing as always – all of the food was delicious and there was plenty of choice. Our room was beautifully decorated,... More

Would definitely recommend and we are looking forward to visiting again. First time I have felt compelled to write a trip advisor review I'm a man of few words so i am not enjoying... More
