“Excellent Accommodation and Location”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

We were visiting Cheltenham from Australia, for 8 nights we were so happy that we stayed at the Portland Apartments, we would certainly stay there again. We found the apartments to be exactly as they are portrayed on the website, no nasty surprises! The apartment was perfect for myself and hubby. Parking is easy, as was the walk to town. Management of the apartments is excellent, with all details covered off to a high standard.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Montpellier suite which is lovely. We had no problem with noise.

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Portland Apartments. We were looking for a place near where our daughter is living while at university and this was just minutes from her dorm and also very close to town. The spacious living room was a welcome place to hang out and meet her friends. It was well stocked with breakfast provisions and had a comfortable queen size bed. We were in the first floor Montpelier Suite . Highly recommended!

Our family of 2 children and 2 adults stayed here for 3 nights in September 2011. We had a one bedroom apartment with the children on fold out beds in the lounge, but there was plenty of room and we never felt crowded. Apartment was spotless, quiet, beautifully furnished with extra televison in bedroom. A welcome basket of fruit, cereal etc was very much appreciated as well as the crossaints, milk and juice in the fridge. Our apartment was on the very ground floor and we had a little terrace area outside and easy access to our parking area. Parking great.The owners were lovely and so helpful. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

With parking included and 2 – 3min walk to Cheltenham High St, the location is ideal for a visit to this historic town. We had a first floor studio flat complete with kitchen, small dining table and sofa. Smart, contemporary décor and furnishings make this a very comfortable place to be, far better than any hotel in this price bracket or higher. Very well equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and washing machine. The ‘welcome pack’ was abundant with breakfast cereals, tea, coffee, milk, bread and croissants. Faultless.

We stayed in the Tivoli for two nights towards the end of September. Our son was playing at the national Brass Band Championships which took place at the racecourse and we needed a location that was both handy for town and an easy walk to the racecourse. The location of the Portland apartments is perfect. There is free parking, which was a real asset, as we parked up and did not use the car again at all over the weekend. All the delights of Cheltenham are within very easy walking distance - town centre, Montpellier, Pittville Park etc.

We found the Tivoli, a studio, perfectly suited our needs and had the benefit of every conceivable appointment for a comfortable stay - including a hugely comfy bed. The outlook, over a car park, isn't the best, but we found it fascinating watching people's behaviour as we ate our breakfast each day. All the staples are provided for a continental breakfast and M & S is a two minute walk away for other bits and pieces. We dined out each night and were spoiled for choice. On Jo's recommendation we tried Raymond Blanc's restaurant at Montpellier on the Friday night and were pleasantly surprised to enjoy a three course evening meal with a glass of wine for less than £20 per head - definitely not to be missed.

Cheltenham is a delightful town with very many attractions and the Portland Apartments have been very sympathetically restored so that they fit in with the townscape externally, but are beautifully modern internally with all the home comforts you could hope for.

Room Tip: Look at the video on the Apartmennt's website to choose the one that matches your needs.

My wife and I stayed in the Prestbury Apartment for a weekend as part of our 10 year wedding anniversary and we are pleased that we did. We have a soft spot for Cheltenham and have stayed many times before in various Apartments and Hotels across town hoping to find somewhere excellent enough to want to return regularly. Finally we found Portland Apartments and will stop looking for something better.

So what did we like?
- Location, perfect on the edge of the Town Centre (about a 3 minute walk to the shopping area)
- Convenience, it has everything you need, onsite free parking, fast wireless internet, breakfast bits, milk and even a Dulce Gusto coffee machine just like we have at home so you can have some nice coffee :-)
- Style, this is not your average corporate apartment that you often find, the apartment was put together with a sense of pride and confidence.
- Attentive service, the Manager Jo welcomed us and ensured that we had all that we needed and before we left we met Alison who owns the property. Both clearly care about what they do.

I would recommend above anywhere else we have stayed in town and we will be back.

Really beautifully decorated apartments, and are very well.

Photos give a good impression.

I'd you like to stay in and cook. The everything is in the kitchen and supermarkets are not far.

If it's juSt a one night stay but a night out. Maybe you wont enjoy the beautiful a place.

Note no telephones in house. Will need your own mobile.
