Lovely welcome with great coffee after a long drive from Devon. Map of the area provided which proved very useful. Bags taken to the room which was very comfortable with very efficient power shower. Lots of little extras such as fridge outside room for fresh milk and slippers and hot water bottles in a basket. Every possible type of breakfast...

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.

Wonderful bed and breakfast in the heart of Cheltenham. Clean, comfortable modern rooms with everything you need and superb home cooked breakfast. These guys really know how to look after their guests. Given a lift to the racecourse when the taxi didn't turn up, it doesn't get much better than that. Do not hesitate to book your stay at this...

This was our first stay at The Battledown which came highly recommended and lived up to the high expectations! On arrival Sarah opened the door with the biggest smile on her face, ready to settle us in for the weekend. Both Sarah & Simon could not help us enough. They booked taxis when we needed them and even took us...

Enjoyed a 2 night stay in this very welcoming and stylish bed and breakfast. Good location, a short walk from the town centre. This is a beautiful home that is run by a family who take great pride in their hospitality. The single bedroom was warm and inviting with great attention to detail. I was made to feel welcome from...
