We stayed here on Friday 11th April so we could see Adam Ant play Cheltenham Town Hall. Really well positioned for the venue within 5 mins walk. The hotel is very clean, very well presented and the rooms are big enough and very comfortable. Breakfast is continental with hot bacon and sausage and toast. Only thing that spoilt it for... More

Stayed on several occasions. This is greate value. Near the centre of town. It is basic. The beds are low-slung and great. Breakfast is a buffet, but I hardly bothered with it, Me and my companion loved it when it snowed. Very fond memories of my time spent here.

Stayed at a "luxury" B+B earlier in the trip and wish we'd saved the extra money and stayed here! Comfortable room, very helpful and friendly staff and in a central location, all at a very good price.

The hotel is fine, the room was mostly pretty clean & decorated nicely. The only problem I had was when I went to get into bed at on Saturday night, I pulled back the cover and I found 2 wet patches on the sheet! I rang down to the reception. There was a man on his own there who was... More

Stayed here for Cheltenham festival so no doubt paid a lot more than you normally would. Room is very basic but clean, reception staff were friendly and when we wanted to know about restaurants couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast again basic but sufficient. Bed comfortable.

Booked a room on the same day of arrival and was pleasantly surprise with the cheap price of a room and the standard of the hotel. Very good value for money.

A very basic and 'rough around the edges' hotel. The best I can say about it is the good location, very central and convenient for the main restaurant/shopping area. It does have all the facilities you need, although I would agree with the comments about the dubious glass sliding door to the ensuite. The bed wasn't very comfortable either but... More

Stayed here on a number of occasions and my one dislike is the 10.30 am check out though I think they can be flexible if you are catching a train for example. Comfortable rooms with the usual accoutrements - though I do wonder about the glass doors - the do feel fragile. Not the world's best breakfast - but enough... More
