The Battledown offers a very high standard of comfort and our hosts could not have done more for us. The breakfast was lovely and the homemade baked beans and marmalade are definitely to be recommended. Having parking available is a real plus point, especially with the town centre only 15 minutes walks away. We have been visiting Cheltenham for many...

We couldn't fault the Battlefield, it was just what we were looking for. Sarah was friendly and greeted us with tea and home made cookies in the guest room. The place was modern but homely, really nicely decorated. Also we had a great breakfast, with home made jam and marmalade on toast followed by a veggie and normal version of...

Boutique hotel style rooms close to Cheltenham town centre. Breakfast cooked to order was great. This was a short break and we will definitely return here when we next visit Cheltenham. Sarah was most helpful with tips about local amenities.
