The welcome by Sarah, Sam and Isobella was warm and friendly; the rooms were extremely well-equipped;and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast was fresh and lovely with lots of choice including cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit and... More

Sarah made us very welcome. Couldn't do enough to make us feel at ease. Great breakfast with homemade preserves and banana bread. Everything supplied including ice-scrapers in case of frosty mornings. Plenty books, umbrellas for lending, slippers, hot water bottles too. Our room had been re-furbished the previous year and was so cosy and light. Garden and parking areas were... More

We had 2 nights at the Battledown in April 2014. Great welcome with lots of useful local knowledge. Our room was comfortable and warm and the decoration/facilities immaculate. Breakfast was just right. All in all a perfect stay.

Stayed there for one night. Sarah was really helpful and the Breakfast is good... Worth the stay if u r keen to explore the cheltanham area. We didn't walk to the town centre. Drove there instead. So can't really judge the location.

Everything was perfect, lovely host, lovely room and a lovely breakfast. I stayed for one night, and after a very long day, immediately felt welcome and relaxed. I would highly recommend this extremely well run B&B.

Sarah made us very welcome on arrival. The bedroom and en-suite (on the lower-ground floor were pristine and all necessities - of very good quality - were provided. We thought we may experience some noise as the kitchen was directly above the room, but there was no disturbance at all - we had a peaceful and very comfortable stay. There... More

This is a great place with attention to detail, great food, outstanding hospitality, and a lovely yard and gardens. Sarah and Simon went way beyond the call of duty to help us with car problems. We will be back!
