We received a very warm welcome and a lovely cup of tea and delicious home baked cookies when we arrived at this gorgeous B&B. The room and facilities were beautifully clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. We were greeted with warm hospitality and a delicious, ample and freshly cooked breakfast in the morning. The only downside was that we were... More

We have just had a fabulous two nights at Battledown. Sarah made us feel very welcome on Friday evening and showed us to a lovely room. Attention to detail is amazing. Everything you could possibly want and more....hot water bottles for aching backs and slippers. Simon's breakfasts are a real treat. With homemade banana bread, marmalade and jam. Te free... More

If you ever need to fresh up your memory about the meaning of the word "friendly", spend a night or two with Sarah and Simon at Battledown, you'll remember in no time! The house itself is very beautiful and so are the rooms. They have a very contemporary look and feel to them - in the best possible sense. The... More

The Battledown is a lovely family run B&B in an easy to find location. I used it for an overnight stay after a wedding. On arrival, I met Simon who was very friendly and keen to talk and get to know his guests. It was a shame that time was limited between the wedding service and the reception, as I... More

Friendly and excellent service. We went for 3 nights at weekend bank holiday. We met Sarah who was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was brilliant and the banana cake was lovely. Room was clean and presentable. Could not have stayed in a better place than this. Fatima & Kaz

As returning guests, my mother and I were pleasantly surprised by the fresh decoration of our old familiar room and as usual we were warmly welcomed by Sarah and Simon. The breakfast was delicious and despite having full occupancy on the bank holiday weekend! our hosts efficiently ensured nobody was kept waiting long for their meal. We will certainly be... More

We stayed at the Battledown for 2 nights whilst attending a wedding at nearby Ellenbourgh Park. Simon & Sarah have created the perfect b&b experience. The attention to detail with the home made jams, chutneys & the slippers & hot water bottle by the door far exceeds many expensive, famous hotels. We enjoyed an excellent stay although we didn't require... More

Lots of nice touches like slippers and umbrellas for guest use. Simon and Sarah keep a selection of menus for Cheltenham restaurants and leaflets with suggested tours of... More

Stayed here one night as a stopover from Scotland to Devon. Quiet, comfortable room with great hospitality from the hosts. If you are looking for somewhere in Cheltenham them don't bother looking any further than The Battledown.

The Battledown is a beautiful B&B in an excellent location. Perfectly positioned to get to town, the Racecourse and the Cotswolds at large. Sarah was a lovely host with attention to every detail. The rooms and grounds were beautifully maintained and extremely cosy and I definitely can't write a review without mentioning the amazing Banana Cake! Hope to visit again... More
