Having read the reviews AFTER booking, we spent weeks worrying about being met with nothing much more than a crack den with no helpful staff to hand. HOW WRONG WE WERE. Situated on Gloucester Road, (5 minute walk around the corner of Cheltenham Spa train station which has a bus into town every 10 minutes or so), we were in...

On arrival the building looks tired. Biggest lesson is g=you get what you pay for. On the whole cleanliness o.k. the one Arm Chair in the studio was very soiled and the bed smelt of smoke. Lots of kitchen cupboards, mainly empty one pint glass for two people and no other glasses. A full size Fridge? Teach me to read...

I booked a twin at this property, and it stated the room was non-smoking. When I arrived at the property, there was an horrible smell of smoke coming from the hallway. Then when I opened the room, the stench of smoke was disgusting. The beds were clean, and the kitchen area was clean, but the curtains and carpet smelt of...

When we stayed in this very basic, but clean hotel, we had the misfortune to have a bunch of 19 y olds on a Bank holiday night out as next door neighbours. These decided to leave the hotel with their TV on full blast. When we called the clerk around 1 am it took them over 2 hours and 3...

I was given a room here after a mix up with their Central Hotel. They failed to process my booking correctly. Agreed to take it as there was little other option than sleeping on the street. The codes to get in were wrong so spent another little while trying to get through to the staff at the hotel. Room was...

Incredibly cheap I just neede a single nights stay and could not believe the price. The big tip is to ignor the booking instructions , an automatic email is sent at 14.00 describing how to get in. I wasted a couple of hours following the check in instructions sent to me. If you can ot get in talk to the...

Well maintained and nice enough rooms, very small though. Somewhat difficult to figure out where to go etc what with absolutely no staff anywhere. Biggest drawback definitely has to be the noise of the trains

Just a quick short review, Do not visit, it's smelly dirty noisy. Stayed awake all night because we were right next to a train track, the stairs are not safe, it stinks like the bad smell from drains, had to share bathroom with at least 6 other rooms who all were unhappy like we were, phoned Portland Street and we're...

These apartments are very clean and well-decorated with a full kitchen. There is a shower in the actual room, but our toilet was down the corridor. There are no staff around and you get in with a code and access your key with another code, which worked quite well. Lovely wooden floors. Not much in the local area, but we...
