We have been staying at the Battledown since before Simon and Sarah took over, and have been back for the Literature Festival every year. Staying at the Battledown is one of the pleasures of coming to Cheltenham, and we would not think of staying anywhere else. Every year it gets better and better and Simon and Sarah really put themselves... More

Based in Cheltenham 2 days a week, much more comfortable and homely than a chain of hotels. Rooms were immaculately clean, well presented and equipped. Really comfortable and the full English breakfast was one of the best

Passing via Cheltenham on our anniversary trip we stayed only one night in this wonderful little B&B. While located on a nice side street a little away from the centre it is still about 15 minute walk from the centre. The property is a pretty building with a small back garden with several spots with seating or even sunbathing when... More

We stayed at The Battledown for two nights and it was a great choice of B&B. The room was lovely, very comfortable and very clean! It's an excellent base for exploring the Cotswolds. A 15 minute walk into Cheltenham town centre for restaurants and bars and a short drive out of town to find wonderful surroundings. The service at The... More

We stayed at the Battledown in Sep and had 2 rooms upstairs. The rooms were spotless and beautifully done up. The bathrooms were of good size and were stocked with thoughtful amenities. Simon and Sarah were great hosts and are very much at hand to make suggestions or offer help if required. The breakfast choices were numerous and all the... More

Recently stayed for 3 nights on a 6 week holiday in Ireland & Great Britain. We used some apartments & B & B's & all were excellent , The Battledown was a standout. Lovely room,wonderful food & extremely friendly & helpful hosts. Would definitely stay again & recommend to any future traveller.

We chose to stay at the Battledown while visiting the Cotswolds for a short WE. The rooms were lovely (best bed I've had in a long time!), the hosts were great (the welcome drinks & cookies were very much appreciated) and the cooked breakfast was absolutely delicious. Many thanks again!
