I stayed with a friend for a birthday suprise and booked online. When we arrived the receptionist was extremely welcoming and friendly. We hadn't been before and realised the location was spot on as we were right in the centre of cheltenham. The rooms were brilliant, fun and fresh with furry curtains and contemporary design. It really didn't feel like... More

Stayed here last night, only a couple of minutes walk to the town centre. The room was very nice, modern , clean and contemporary. We had room 403, view not up to much but for one night who cares. Hairdryer in the room along with tea/coffee etc. On the 4th floor is an ironing station where you can borrow an... More

Good location for town, clean rooms, tiny underground car park which is a little tight. Good value for money, bar area quite well stocked of bottled beers and wine. Also not quite sure about the furry curtains !!

Ideally located for the Town Centre. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was excellent. Very clean and tidy throughout. There is an underground car park which gets busy and is a little tight for space but provided good value when compared with the town centre parking spaces. Excellent value for money - especially if you can prebook!

Stayed there during December 2014. Modern decor. Not sure about the heavy furry curtains, straight from an Austin Power movie. Staff very friendly and helplful. Allowed us to leave bags there early. Wifi not included and expensive. Should be included these days. Good breakfast. Excellent location from bus depot and within metres of centre of town. Lots of shops and... More

Stayed here on New years day as it was close enough to Cheltenham race course and great value. I was very concerned at some of the reviews but decided it was just for one night and you get what you pay for, so we were going to 'grin and bear it'! We were very happily surprised at how friendly the... More

We stayed here for 1 night for my daughter's graduation ceremony. The hotel is no-frills but the rooms are a good size and the bathroom was well appointed and clean. It was the first time I've ever stayed in a hotel where the bedroom curtains looked like shaggy sheepskin rugs. The staff in reception were very helpful. My daughter needed... More
