We stayed for one night here with our two children (9 & 11) and our two small dogs. The hotel building & grounds were excellent, the staff were welcoming & helpful and the room was perfect (plenty of space, well appointed, massive bathroom and spotlessly clean). Our dogs were very well catered for too with a large crate, water bowl...

An overnight stay at the Ellenborough was a delight. My room was well appointed and spacious, with a four poster bed. The grounds around the hotel overlooked the Race Course and are ideal for a stroll. All rooms were clearly individual and well designed. There was a spa and outdoor pool which all looked very good, although I did not...

Everything we wanted for a relaxing escape from London. We had fantastic hot stone massages and a lovely couple of hours by the pool with a nice lunch. You can wander round the beautiful grounds with views over Cheltenham in your robes and slippers which was nice so we had a nice cool down walk after our massages.The bed was...

We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night a couple of weeks ago. We arrived a little early so our room wasn't ready but we sat in comfortable seats with a coffee and the staff parked our car and took our luggage to the room. The room was well appointed and the bathroom exceptionally nice. Shame there were no openable...

We were lucky enough to spend a night in the Gauto Star suite. After a short drive we arrived at the hotel and we were greeted by the receptionist who brought us up to the room. During the short stay we spend most of our time in the outdoor pool which was great as it was very sunny. Breakfast on...

Whilst this is a very nice hotel the food is really only very average with portion sizes below what you would expect. I would steer clear of the haddock for breakfast this was served to my surprise in a bowl and what I can only say a piece of fish that was more like an off cut you would give...

The long driveway to the car park shows off the hotel setting. Reception was friendly. We were shown to our room, which was a bit of a maze. Not really suitable for disabled as there were lots of steps. We asked for a taxi to be booked when we got to our room. The room was fine, although the window...

This is by far the fanciest place i have ever stayed and its fitting that i was there on my honeymoon. The grounds house themselves are amazing and just entering through the gate your mindset somehow changes to a state of elegance.
