Charlton Kings Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 March 2013

The Charlton Kings Hotel is a 14-room 'mansion' conveniently located on the A40, 2 miles to the east of the Cheltenham centre and easily found due to a large sign. A warm welcome from this family-run hotel ensured a quick check-in process and saw us taken to our tastefully-decorated room with a newly refurbished bathroom. Whilst not huge, the room was certainly spacious enough for a night's stay and the standard reflected the hotel's fairly-competitive room rate.
Breakfast in the morning was plentiful, both in choice and quantity and the freshly cooked to order English Breakfast was excellent - the service in particular was especially attentive.

Overall, a very nice hotel with only one slight exception - the hotel is pet friendly, which is great if your a pet owner (or even a pet!), but not so good if you are rudely-awakened on a Sunday morning (complete with hangover, of course!) by the whining of the dog in the adjacent room. I'm sure that it was a one off - but worth bearing in mind - and it only detracted slightly from a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: A room facing away from the reasonably-busy A40 road ensures a quieter night's sleep.

Many thanks for your detailed review. Gosh! No one's ever called us a mansion before! Glad you liked staying here and sorry about the dog noise. We do take dogs and naturally assume that owners will have a responsible attitude to looking after their pets.

Thanks to our hosts for a wonderful weekend spent in Charlton Kings Hotel.
We were welcomed with afternoon tea and cakes after our journey. Our room was wonderfully appointed with all the facilities to a very high standard. Our party of ten was accommodated in the evenings for dinner which was a great experience all round. Food was of a high standard which together a with fine array at breakfast set us up for our walks in the beautiful countryside around Cheltenham.
Without doubt a hotel I have no problem in recommending without any reservation. Thank you to our hosts and we look forward to seeing you again

Comfy bed and pillows, spacious clean room with quality furnishings and decoration. All the extras that you need including free wifi and a flask of fresh milk with your in room drink making tray.
Good breakfast and very friendly welcoming hosts.

Why book into an impersonal chain hotel when you can get quality like this at a much better price. We'll certainly stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Thank you to the hotel owners for a very lovely stay in your hotel. We had 2 rooms between 3 of us. Both were spotlessly clean, very warm and incredibly comfortable. We had dinner in the hotel which was yummy, the breakfasts were also perfectly lovely, the whole hotel was very impressive.

Also don't agree with the negative Previous comments. We will definitely be returning, thank you again!

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms on the very top floor which worked well for family members staying together

We booked the Charlton Kings Hotel on spec. Our bedroom had earlier in the year been refurbished. it was well done with a superb en suite bathroom.

The room and bathroom were a very pleasant start to our weekend. The evening meal, was truly superb, as was the breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel, a great location for the Cotswolds and with very welcoming and helpful hosts.

When we stayed at this hotel last year we so enjoyed the experience that we promised ourselves a return visit, as this was it. I reviewed Charlton Kings hotel last time, and everything was as perfect this time as it was then. We received a very warm welcome from Stuart, who opened the door for us to come in and carried our suitcase to the room. Lin also came to greet us and they both made us extremely welcome. As before, our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed. The bathroom was immaculate and had modern fittings, the shower over the bath was excellent and a heated towel rail ensured our towels were nicely warmed.
Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented, and there was ample choice. We ate dinner at the hotel both nights, and could not fault the food whatsoever - the quality of the food was superb, and was freshly cooked. The homemade soups were delightful, and almost a meal in themselves! We also had pre- and after- dinner drinks in the conservatory.
At all times over the weekend, both Stuart and Lin were attentive without being intrusive; friendly, and ready to give any help and guidance with our questions about Cheltenham and the local area. We will certainly be visiting Cheltenham again and the Charlton Kings Hotel will be our first choice.
Stuart and Lin Doughty own and manage a lovely hotel and clearly have impeccable standards.
