A fabulous B & B just outside the town of Cheltenham however easily within walking distance. Gorgeous cosy room with a lovely bathroom and toiletries. The bed was very comfortable. Amazing breakfast the next morning. Homemade banana bread and baked beans! Delicious! Would highly recommend!

From the minute we arrived we were looked after-homemade cookies and freshly brewed tea was appreciated after our long journey! Breakfast was delicious all freshly cooked to order! Highly recommend this B & B and we will be... More

A magnificent property with unrivalled facilities. Simon & Sarah have worked hard however, to ensure that you feel completely at ease. No rules or regulations here, the minute you step over the threshold relaxation takes over - you need not worry about a thing, your hosts will take care of everything. Beautifully decorated and toasty warm, it's hard to drag... More

A warm welcome is guaranteed upon arrival at this impressive architectural gem in Cheltenham with the offer of tea or coffee whilst we registered. Our room was beautifully furnished and very well appointed. The very comfortable double bed was to our liking as so often hotel beds are too soft for a good nights' sleep. We slept very well. Our...

Traveling in the shoulder season, we hadn't booked but were still lucky enough to get a room in this wonderful B and B. The Battledown is, quite simply, a brilliant place to stay and proved truly excellent value for money. The phrase "attention to detail" is often mentioned in reviews of The Battledown and there's a reason for this. Every... More

The balance between maintaining a comfortable family home whilst at the same time providing accommodation for paying guests is not always an easy task, however it is one which Simon and Sarah at The Battledown have achieved with great success. From the point of arrival through to our departure we discovered every aspect of their provision to be imbued with... More

We were very impressed with how welcome we were made from the time we arrived until we left. The room was very clean and of a high standard, we had a lovely breakfast, nice to have homemade marmalade and cookies offered to us. Situated in walking distance to the town, which was good for us. Sarah was very helpful.

Stayed one night with my daughter. Very well thought out with attention to detail - those little touches to cover (literally - umbrellas available!) guests needs. Delicious breakfast - proper sausages and bacon, home made preserves, etc.. Best of all Sarah and Simon welcoming, kind, knowledgeable about the area. Definitely would visit again and recommend

My friend and I stayed here for a Christmas shopping weekend in Cheltenham. Not only was our room very comfortable and nicely decorated but so much thought had gone in to the little 'extras' which may a stay so enjoyable such as slippers and hot water bottles at our disposal, giving us a local map, bowls of sweets around the...
