This hotel is so close to everything that is great in Cheltenham. It is directly across from the Brewery, which has restaurants, bars, bowling alley, movie theater, etc. The location is an easy walk to the high street and more restaurants and pubs. The rooms are a bit on the small side but how much time do you really want...

The hotel was in the ideal location for us and is surrounded by bars and restaurants (many of which give discounts for staying in this hotel which is a bonus). The rooms are basic but clean although our heating system wasn't working and was just pumping out cold air. The staff did offer to bring up a heater but we...

Stayed numerous times over the last 7 years. Rooms are ok but tend to become stuffing in summer. Breakfast was awful in the past, it has improved but is still not good enough. Close the the centre of town parking is around £10-£12 per night.

Standard high quality (at price point) property in an excellent location. Several pubs and bars local to the hotel (new shopping Mall) so lots of choice for food and beverage. Noise from the adjacent local roads is minimal, parking more than adequate (£15.00 per night). A safe choice for a good nights sleep close to the town centre.

It's a Holiday Inn so you always know what to expect. This one is fine - large comfy rooms, basic with not much storage, bathroom could be nicer but all ok. Downsides is that parking is expensive, and also hotel is located on a main road making it very noisy at times although earplugs are provided in some rooms. Staff...

As it said on the label... It is basic, in quality and service and food. Plastic coffee, cold plates and tepid food for breakfast. Not cheep, but is in line with the area. Will not at this one again, but some of them are better.

It was the December Race weekend. The town was full. The racegoers and shoppers mingled in and around the hotel.

Staff on arrival were very helpful. They told us to purchase a weekly ticket for the ncp car park which allowed us to enter and leave as many times throughout our stay, cheaper than paying every time. Beds made everyday plus clean towels also. Staff couldn't enough for us.
