“Good location for the town and exploring the Cotswolds”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Stayed here over the bank holiday weekend with the family. Just as you would expect a Holiday Inn Express to be; pleasant staff, good rooms, at a fair price. Check in and out were very efficient with no issues. Room was clean and up to date, although pretty cramped for four when the sofa bed was folded out for bedtime. Climate control was not very straight forward which did cause a pretty 'over warm' first night. Best not to leave breakfast to the last minute if you want to avoid the 'late scrum' ! NCP car park next door was convenient, and the hotel had a discount of 25%. Lots of good restaurants in the area to choose from. Likely to stay there again if in the area.

We had a weekend break and found this hotel was central to our needs.Cinema complex and high street food chain outlets across the road in the Brewery.Hotel provides discounts for these restaurants.Room and breakfast adequate.Friendly polite staff from reception to the restaurant.25% discount card for NCP car park,you will need it!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and we overlooked the courtyard, no road traffic.

We visited Cheltenham for a family event. We booked a double room for three nights at £210, which included breakfast.
The location is good, in a quiet area, just off the high street. Within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants & parks. Also, it is across the road from cinema complex & an all important Nandos! There is no on-site parking, however there is a NCP car park across the road which offers 25% discount to residents. This worked out at £9 per 24 hours, very reasonable.
The rooms were as you would expect; bed, sofa bed, tv, shower room. One thing I can say is that the room was spotlessly clean & was cleaned each day of our stay.
Self service breakfast was between 7am & 10am. There were hot options; scrambled egg, beans & sausages as well as toast, yogurts, cereals & fruit.
Service was great. We arrived at 1am on a Saturday morning, after a long drive from Glasgow. It was no problem for residents to be served a well deserved alcoholic drink at the bar at that time.
In addition, we had a family event on the Sunday & telephoned reception on the off chance that they had an iron we could borrow. Again, no problem. We collected an iron & ironing board at reception and returned it when finished.
Nice clean room, good location & service at a reasonable price. We'd stay here again without question

Hotel is located in the heart of the city centre, right next to The Brewery which has bars, restaurants, gym and cinema. Only a 5 min walk to other central bars and parking is over the road in the NCP, £12 over night but ask at Reception when booking out and they give you a discount card to put in before you pay :)

Check in was quick and easy, very pleasant actually as she chatted about what was going on and handed us a map of the town with helpful info and discounts within the Brewery complex.

The hotel was very clean, bedroom was a good size, wardrobe just about ok and great bathroom with a nice hot powerful shower.

Bed wasn't great, a bit lively and bouncy but we slept ok, TV worked a treat and all in all the room was fine, especially for what you pay (£63 per night).

The chilling out area outside was nice, bar area and breakfast area was well laid out and clean.

Breakfast is free and was ok, you get sausage, beans and scrambled egg for hot food, as well as cereals, yoghurts, breads and such.
Plentiful toast, tea, coffee and the usual also present.
The breakfast was only ok, I enjoyed the breads and fruit along with the toast but the hot food wasn't hot at all, that could do with looking at, I don't mind cold beans but slightly warm beans isn't nice !!

Staff all over the hotel were very pleasant and couldn't be faulted.

All in all a nice stay, very clean, great staff, good room with hot shower and great location.
Shame the breakfast wasn't hotter.

A good stay and great value hotel, well done.

Lovely hotel/position really handy for the towncentre and the brewery area. The hotel staff are friendly rooms are spacious and clean and the power showers in the room are incredible. The courtyard bar area was lovely and a great sun trap for a drink. A really great stay!!

Stayed here to attend a friends birthday party in the town. Finding the place was fine, and parking in the NCP next door was ok too. You get 25% off the car park with a voucher from the hotel which is good.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, we signed up for some reward scheme for free which meant we could check out late on the Sunday (2pm), and they went through this with us.
The room was really nice, modern, clean, and spacious, and also came with a sofa bed which I wasnt aware of. The shower was great, really hot and really powerful.
The bar stays open all night from what I experienced and is actually better priced than some of the bars in town.
The food on offer 24/7 from the bar or room service is actually good value too. I had a large pepperoni pizza in the bar at about 2:30am, for £5.
The only downside I found was the breakfast. I was looking forward to it after a big night out, but was seriously disappointed. The beans were cold and a bit sweet, the scrambled egg was 'odd', the sausages were underdone... where was the bacon? where were the hash browns? Fried/poached eggs? Black pudding? Mushrooms? Tomatoes? Really poor. Even the juices were watered down.
I was very glad to be going to the nearby all you can eat chinese for lunch!
The hotel also offers a discount at loads of nearby restaurants which is great.
