Charlton Kings Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2013

This is an exceptional small hotel owned and operated by Stuart and Lynn Doughty, it is highly recommended. The hotel is immaculate, the rooms well decorated and comfortable, the bathrooms large, clean and functional. Lynn and Stuart are very friendly and helpful; they were accommodating and made us feel at home. The hotel has full restaurant and bar service, the food was excellent and the prices reasonable. For those walking the Cotswold way, this hotel is located ¾ of a mile off the route (turn right on London Road after Dowdeswell Reservoir when walking south), but the hotel is well worth the added effort. This hotel is given the highest recommendation; this is a real gem and should be considered by those walking the Cotswold Way, or any other traveler for that matter.

Many thanks for your review and kind comments. We're glad you liked staying here so much. As you note, we are three-quarters of a mile from the Cotswold Way but because the path takes a wide route around the town we are also probably the nearest Cheltenham hotel to the Cotswold Way.

A wonderful, clean, comfortable hotel. Staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. We stayed for two nights and would definitely return. The breakfast was delicious with a good selection and the bar was well stocked.

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
