Great hotel, great location, great service. Yes the rooms are a little tired but does it really matter - the location and views are just fantastic. Service was great, friendly and helpful - a wonderful welcome and a great stay. Breakfast was excellent and we ate in the restaurant in the evening - good food at a fair price and... More

My wife, small daughter and I visited the Rising Sun for breakfast on a whim as it was a lovely weather and the sun was shining. Wasn't sure if the hotel did breakfasts for non-residents, but we were warmly welcomed and it was no problem. We were seated in the window which had a spectacular view over Cheltenham. The staff...

Old English Inns by name and this one certainly rings true. Now part of Greene King group it has bags of appeal and good service and the view over Cheltenham is stunning. Room perhaps a little small but full of character and dare I say maybe spirits or ghosts? Really good breakfast and although not enjoyed there, the lunch and... More

The bloke behind the bar was very very rude to us, his attitude was disccussting! Definitely would not go to him again, all the staff look miserable! They need to take a happy pill, the only good thing about this place is the view, will not be returning again!!!

I can only speak for the restaurant. A last minute idea for 3 of us, so we didn't book, and we were a little late into lunchtime. However we were able to sit in the bar area. The views were lovely - mental note to return in summer. Our Sunday roasts was very good, (2 turkey and 1 beef). They... More

Went here for a family meal last minute. We hadn't booked a table but they sorted us a table in the bar area. The food was lovely and so was the service. I have been here for drinks and nibbles in the summer. The review is amazing and the food is always a good standard.

This place is ok. Views are spectacular, breakfast is great, pub food is good, service is ok, room I stayed in needed a lick of paint at least, was noisy due to the cooling system outside, small TV, room was clean(ish). If I was staying in the area again I would consider going back.
