3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The best thing about this place is the location - so central. The bed was comfortable. The room is VERY basic - but we weren't here to stay in the room. Fine to get changed in and sleep. It's cheap and central. If you want a lovely room/hotel pay more and stay somewhere else. Didn't bother with breakfast - ate... More

All round awesome. Great price too! When we arrived at 9pm-ish the staff member at reception was helpful and friendly, giving us lots of information with out rushing us up to our room. And again on the morning the member of staff on reception gave us lots of advice on where to park and what to see. The room was... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were modern and clean and the bed wasn't too hard (as others have previously mentioned). The drinks at the bar were reasonably priced and the hotel had really thought about what their customers may need in the way of toothbrushes, drinks, nibbles, pot noodles (which would be useful especially after returning on...

Didn't know what to expect having read all of the reviews but I wasn't disappointed for the price. Reception staff great, room big & clean enough. Good shower. Only issue was with breakfast - there wasn't any! It was reasonably busy & the kitchen couldn't cope with the demand so we went elsewhere. Would recommend for a central budget stay... More

Stayed here as it was cheap and great location for a night in Cheltenham, the staff were great. Very friendly and quick to help. The room was...well...basic. The whole hotel is dated, worn and just a bit dirty. There are what appears to be old office tables in the corridors, the lift is a left over small thing from the... More

This is what it is , a budget hotel , it's clean does the job, bed could be better. The takeaway breakfast was great and the breakfast the following morning was good although no eggs, the pastries are lovely. One thing you do need to bring , earplugs not just for the late night revellers , which is understandable as... More

In a great location for the town centre, the big sleep has a enjoyable style of décor that you rarely see elsewhere. The rooms are a good size and well equipped, the breakfast buffet is well stocked with all that you might want. All that with excellent value too, definitely recommended.

The hotel is almost in the town centre. Facilities are basic but staff are both nice and helpful. The TV has Sky sports all 3 channels which is unusual for a budget hotel. Price includes breakfast but oddly there are no eggs served.
