Group stay for a weekend visit to the town. Clean and tidy in a great central position. Breakfast adequate, and a small bar is available. Manager Simon was very helpful and made planning easy. Would certainly use again for cheap accomodation.

Great central location!! Just off the high street but still very quiet. Bedroom and bathroom was a good size and clean! Comfy bed too. The staff were helpful and friendly. Really good value for money, would highly recommend as a place to stay.

We stayed for one night while attending a performance at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, and this was our third or fourth such stay. The hotel and its staff are pleasant, it is clean and well decorated, the rooms are more than basic but not luxurious, and most of all it is central and quiet. We shall stay there again...

I like this hotel. OK, so breakfast on my first morning was cold ( the hot dishes, I mean!), but my room and bathroom were great. Being on the fourth floor at the back meant a peaceful night's sleep and some nice views across the rooftops to some of Cheltenham"s lovely turrets and spires. I returned at around 2pm for...

The big sleep is just an average hotel. Very basic offering a great location for the town and particularly the races. The breakfast is also quite basic. There are cereals, fruit juice, croissants, and a small selection of cooked items. However this wasn't kept nearly warm enough. The most concerning aspect at breakfast was the staff, in particular one member....

We needed a reasonably priced hotel in Cheltenham for a visit to our grandaughter who is at Gloucester university. This fitted the bill in every way. Great location. Good service and very helpful staff. Adequate buffet breakfast. Comfortable room.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this budget hotel in comparison to others I've stayed in . The rooms were spacious , well equipped and the complimentary breakfast was excellent. The staff at this hotel are an asset as they are amongst the most pleasant and helpful I've encountered for a while. I would definitely recommend.

Four of us stayed overnight in two twin rooms - we grandparents, our daughter in law and 11 year old granddaughter, on a special visit to hear her sister sing at a concert at the nearby own hall.
