Just had a great weekend in Cheltenham, made easy and even more relaxing by the hosts at Battledown. They provided a safe lock up for our mountain bikes, served a tasty breakfast and were helpful and friendly with everything we needed. The B n B is a few steps above the usual standard, excellent value and I'd certainly stay again.... More

Another enjoyable stay at The Battledown. Sarah & Simon continue to provide great service and ensure all their guests are made welcome. No hesitation in returning next year and recommending to others. Good to hear business is thriving - well done.

Sarah is a warm and welcoming host, allowing us to park just after 10 so that we could walk back into town for the day. She had even got our room ready at this early hour and made coffee and home-made cookies. This is a beautiful house and you can see the dedication in preserving the period features with tasteful...

I stayed at The Battledown this weekend for 2 nights as I had a friend's wedding in Cheltenham. This B&B is immaculately clean but still homely. The room (room 5) was beautifully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious - if you stay you have to try the homemade ginger & rosemary orange marmalade; best... More

Just returned from another excellent stay at the Battledown Bed & Breakfast, Cheltenham. Sarah and Simon made us very welcome from the moment we arrived. The tray of tea and home made cookies served in the beautiful garden began two days of bliss! We had room 5 which although on the small side was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable.

My husband and I have just spent 4 nights at The Battledown and will definitely stay again. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. We are going to miss the delicious breakfasts! Sarah and Simon were so helpful and seemed to have thought of every detail to make this B&B very special.

Had a weekend away to ourselves and luckily chose to stay at the Battledown. Never been to Cheltenham before but we were made to feel so welcome and got some great tips on places to go and to eat. The whole B&B is really well kept and the quality of the food matches the accommodation (including the garden area). Would... More

Just returned back from a 2 night stay at Battledown. From the moment we pressed the front doorbell Sarah and Simon were fantastic hosts. Everything about the Battledown is first class and nothing is too much trouble. Super homemade cookies on arrival and jam and marmalade at breakfast. Will definitely return.

A lovely one night stay during our house move to Cheltenham - and a great welcome to the area! Everything about the stay was ideal, from arrival through to the wonderful breakfast. Simon and Sarah put their hearts into everything and it showed in how well they looked after us. Definitely the place to stay in Cheltenham.
