This was our first stay here. The location was perfect, the accommodation was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking was around the back and although first come first basis we were able to park. It is a very small car park however loads of parking close by.

I have stayed here on 3 occasions, the rooms at the back are much quieter, I once had the misfortune of staying at the front of the hotel on a Monday night, apparently this is student night in town , ! I was rudely awakened at 02.40 by a drunken bunch of students yelling at the top of their lungs...

I needed a room late at night and I found this on a website so booked in for two nights. The hotel was in need of upgrade and the stair carpets were stained and lifting in places. The room was clean as was the bedding and towels. The shower/showerroom was new and excellent. Single glazing so a bit noisy. Great...

Booked a 1 night stay for a visit to Cheltenham races and a night out in town. Was pleased with the standard of accomodation and the cleanliness of the room. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they happily let me drop off my car and luggage at 11am even though they don't let you have your room...

We had a fairly enjoyable stay here- clean room, friendly staff, good location. We encountered none of the horror stories described in the other reviews. The rooms have a microwave, small kitchen area and tea and coffee facilities.

Stayed for one night on NYE. Was just about to arrive but we got a call from the staff saying that they'd changed our room, the reason for this was that there was a meeting still happening in the room we had booked 4 days prior. We agreed to change room subject to it still having the private terrace and...

The stains on the carpet, the smell in the bedroom, the noise of fellow occupants shagging through the walls, the drunken revellers singing their way home right outside your window, the feeling that you are staying in the hotel from The Shining...BUT we love it. We use this hotel on a regular basis to break up our journey to holiday...

Wasn't expecting too much, but it was pretty nasty... Room smelt like sick, both taps came out with hot water, single glazed windows facing busy road and nowhere to park unless you reserve before hand. If your going for a day at the races and simply want somewhere to collapse afterwards then fine, but that is it from this place...

Old, tired, shabby, majorly over priced !! If you are forced to stay here inspect your room thoroughly before you settle in. My partner and I came to Cheltenham for a Romantic weekend away and this hotel ruined it ! The room had a funny musty smell which i couldn't put my finger on until I woke in morning and...
