I stayed here recently as a pair on a Friday night. The hotel wasn't too hard to get to, however once you get there, if you can't park outside then you need to drive all the way back round the one way system to find a space. We parked in the tiny underground car park, which was very hard to... More

Help yourself breakfast which included hot items, cereals, yogurts and pastries. Really nice. Hotel is so close to all the shops and bars . Parking... More

The temperature was spot on and the room had everything required, plenty of sockets, decent lighting for make up /shaving. Plenty of towels, instant hot water. Plenty of storage and hangers. We wanted... More

Stayed for one night for the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and found this hotel to be very convenient for the centre of town. The room was spacious and clean with everything that we needed. Breakfast included in the price was good with continental or cooked option although the room was rather small. A special mention to the reception staff whom we... More

This is a coverted office block (I think!) in the centre of Cheltenham so close to all amenities - High Street, Prom, Cav House, Town Hall, Montpelier etc.This is a budget type hotel but NOT cheap and cheerful! The check-in was quick and efficient and the chap on reception was friendly. The room was fine with a nice bathroom. Downsides... More

Stayed 2 nights while delivering a workshop for a client. The client chose the hotel. Great meeting rooms with a very competitive per delegate rate. Clean, functional rooms with a great view of the city. Very comfy, low beds.

Nice bargain hotel. Clean, comfy, very central to Cheltenham and its night life, very highly recommended. Breakfast was very good. Could do with a power shower and the bath took ages to run, as the water does run very slowly. £6.00 car parking well worth it.

For a basic no frills hotel this is excellent. The reception staff were welcoming and friendly. We ordered an evening meal and it was well cooked and very good value. Rather than have it in our room, we were invited to eat in the lounge area where it was more comfortable. As it was quiet, this may not be an... More
