We stayed here over the easter bank holiday weekend after seeing the hotel advertised on Groupon. We ended up getting a much better deal by contacting the hotel direct. The hotel is nice, and a big positive is it's surroundings. Not too far out of Cheltenham city centre which can be reachable in about a 10 minute drive, and accessible to many of the National Trust properties nearby. We booked the hotel mainly as we wanted to refresh ourselves and take advantage of the spa facilities. Unfortunatelty, this was the biggest let down for us. The spa consisted of a small (but nice enough well lit gym with some great equipment), a couple of beauty rooms, a smallish pool, Jacuzzi and Sauna. The pool area was quite busy and looked a little worn out. Not quite as relaxing as we would expect a spa in a 4 star, we didn't use the spa, apart from a couple of times spent in the gym. If you are looking for a spa break then you might be disappointed. On the plus side, the service was fantastic. The resturant staff were very polite, the food was very nice and very well presented, and the resturant manager (can't remember his name) greeted us with a smile each morning/evening. The lunch menu, however, is limited and we found quite expensive - £7 for a sandwich. We stayed in a premium double room which was quite a walk from the main reception area and might be an issue for someone hard of walking. Saying that, our room was very nice, a good size and we had a nice view out to the hotel grounds. Bed was comfy too! In our opinion, it was a nice stay, although it is a shame that the spa really wasn't what we expected for a 4 star hotel, it is more an acceptable 3 star. Would we recommend? Yes, but not if you are looking for a 'luxury' spa break.
