“Pleasant Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

This hotel is situated not too far from Cheltenham and set in quite large grounds. There is plenty of parking spaces and a very large grass area with seating ideal for a hot day to sit with a drink. We stayed for 2 nights in one of the superior rooms which was spacious and very nice. The room was peaceful despite on a main road, free wifi, usual coffee & tea facilities Nice bathroom and shower. Found the owners amicable and helpful especially Stuart always had a chat with us. They gave us information on places to eat and visit. Breakfast was good although if you get there late the small buffet section consisting of yogurts, juice and cereal does not get replenished.

Many thanks for your review. We're glad you're like it here. We try to replenish breakfast things like yoghurt and fruit as they go, but perhaps guests were too quick for us when you were here.

We where made very welcome, a special rate for Bed, Breakfast and Evening meal. The rooms where modern and the restaurant served a nice choice of food. Cheltenham is just down the road, and visits to Gloucester and Tewkesbury made a nice day out

Great small hotel stayed there for a weekend break for the races in October.
Although hotel appeared full it was very peaceful and quiet when we were there.
Owners very helpful with plenty of local information.
Rooms very nice with everything you could need including tea & coffee making facilities and free wi-fi.
Ate in restaurant one night which was very good if a little basic but breakfast was excellent with a good choice.
Beds very comfy with good bathroom and shower.
Nice dog in reception.
Great pub/restaurant called Langtons not far away which did excellent food.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 1 which was great.

Many thanks for your review. We're glad you liked staying here. Yes, our dinner menu is quite low-key. There are so many excellent restaurants in Cheltenham town centre that we keep things simple here for those who want to stay put.

I was away on business and booked this hotel based on location and feedback and was very happy with my stay. The hotel is on a very busy main road and the walls quite thin so my ear plugs were blessing, however a small consession for an enjoyable stay. Spotlessly clean , (they allow dogs but you have to take your own bedding and they are not allowed on the furniture) Quality bedding, excellent evening meal and breakfast. I asked if there were any walks and did not know about the Cotswold Way, a fantstic base if you into your walking (hiking can be steep in places)
The hosts are fantastic and I had a excellent stay, happy to recommend as a stop over or longer break.

Room Tip: Take you walking boots

Thanks for your review. Glad you were pleasantly surprised - and not the opposite. We are used a lot by business travellers who find our position on the A40 is very convenient. (There's not much traffic at night.) And we're also a very regular stop-over for walkers on the Cotswold Way. So we kind of cater for everybody!

My wife and I were walking the Cotswold Way and looking for hotels nearby. The Charlton Kings Hotel is close to the trail and fitted our requirements perfectly.
The room was clean tastefully decorated and well equipped. The small bar well stocked, dinner and breakfast were excellent. Our hosts were attentive and friendly.

On day three of the Cotswold Way, this was the first 'proper' hotel we stayed in after B&B's. The owners were quite friendly, but it didn't have the same feel and welcome as other places we stayed. The room and bathroom were fine, the breakfast was good, but the main drawback was the busy road, which kept us awake on a very warm night.

Thank you for your review. We make no secret of the fact that we are by the A40 - which makes the hotel easy to find and convenient to use. You stayed during some of the hottest weather for several years. Obviously many windows were open and the interior was therefore noisier than it would be normally. (All our windows are double-glazed.)

Me and my partner stayed at The Charlton Kings Hotels for two nights as it was conveniently located for a flying experience we had booked and made a well deserved weekend break out of it... did not disappoint.

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted straight away and taken up to our room, which was a Superior Room overlooking the beautiful gardens. The gentleman was very welcoming and told us all about the local area, and information on the hotel, ie. breakfast times.

Room was very nice, clean with a king size bed. Lovely modern bathroom with a great shower as well.

Breakfast in the morning was a mixture of help yourself items such as fruit, cereal and juices and a selection and cooked breakfasts (full English was delicious). The lady in the morning again was very welcoming, even mentioning the reason we were at the hotel (we had told the gentleman the night before) which was a great personal touch.

All in all we had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay at the hotel, they were very helpful and accommodating, which topped off our weekend break just lovely.

If we find ourselves back in the area, we would defiantly re book this hotel.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 10, overlooking the garden
