Fantastic location very close to the restaurants and shops, very clean, and fantastic decoration
My suite was superb with a huge bed, very quiet with a exquisite presentation I can't wait to stay there again!

The Roma was smaller than it looked on the website but everything about it was lovely. The wet room was well appointed, fluffy towels on a hot rail and plenty of toiletries. Breakfast was good, quality yoghourts, plenty of fruit, cheese and ground coffee with a cafetiere. Nice magnifying mirror and a hairdryer provided, fast wifi and a book with details of how everything worked. Mattress on the firm side but I slept like a baby with the extra blanket thoughtfully at the end of the bed. The parking was welcome because it can be difficult to find in Cheltenham. Plenty of restaurants in easy distance.
Niggles.....only one chair at the desk so breakfast a deux would have to be in bed. I was alone so no problem. Had to plug in the hairdryer under the desk and the light over the shower was out. Nothing major and easily fixed.
The whole place was stylish and spotless.

Hello Gill Thank you for your feedback. The Roma suite has now been comprehensively reformed and is now able to provide a super kingsize bed, a dining area for two, air conditioning and the spectacular sky lantern with electric blind . We would welcome you back for you to experience the changes!

This is not a regular hotel. You book your room online and receive a code to enter the building and your suite. There is no reception, and no members of staff. The suites are lovely, clean and spacious. The breakfast is a bit limited, cheap cereal, a few fruit, and only two yoghurts. The only bread provided is sandwich bread, and there are no pastries. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the hotel will pre-approve a debit of £250 off your card to cover damages. We were not impressed by that. Considering that there is no staff around and no service at all, the room fees are very expensive. We would not return, because we prefer human contact and for a similar price you can find traditional hotels offering good service in Cheltenham.

Thank you for your review, we do appreciate your feedback.

You are indeed correct. We are absolutely not a 'regular hotel'. Our web site goes to great lengths to explain the Strozzi Palace proposition clearly. We even dedicate an entire page on the website explaining precisely why we're different !

What we offer - with a passion - is just six spacious, premium luxury suites, not standard hotel rooms. There's no reception because our independently -minded clientele neither need, nor want one. You will have seen the housekeeping team and a duty manager on hand daily, each morning, servicing suites and the building; at all other times the senior management team is never more than phone call away. There's no restaurant, bar or room service because some of Cheltenham's finest establishments sit within 100m of our doors.

The freedom to experience central Cheltenham, staying in an intimate, private historic listed building is precisely why guests choose us above a hotel chain. By focusing exclusively on what guests really want - rather than what a national hotel chain thinks they must need - means the value and quality we can provide is absolutely second to none. Our countless glowing reviews and guest satisfaction surveys speak volumes.

Our online booking process is thorough to ensure every suite is prepared to a guest's exact specifications. It includes the option, at no extra cost, to nominate a wide range of items for breakfast, or accept a standard selection for convenience. Sadly you didn't tell us which alternative breakfast items (including pastries) you would have preferred.

Lastly, in line with most of the hotel industry, holiday apartment or even property rental, we always pre-authorise payment cards for the duration of any stay. We provide a very high quality product: we cannot risk accepting a stolen or invalid credit card on our reservation file, or having no recourse in the unlikely event of guest damage or breach-of-terms. To reiterate, this is NOT a charge. This pre-authorisation falls off the card a couple of days after your stay.

We stayed in the Tuscany Suite for one night for a romantic break! The suite was lovely, nicely decorated and roomy! The bedroom was beautiful with a huge bed. The kitchen was clean, shiny and the fridge had a few things inside for us to eat prior to going out to dinner! The bathroom was great with a nice big bath and a fabulous shower!

Really enjoyed our stay - The only issue was that once I had a bath, there was no hot water for my husband to then have a shower - but we survived and I giggled a lot!!

Would most definitely return without question!

We stayed in the Milano suite during a local festival and our stay was perfect. The room was exactly as we expected, the building was in a great location and we could walk anywhere we needed to go. The suite was clean and extremely well stocked. I can honestly stay it was one of the best places I've ever rented, we wouldn't change a thing. If I'm ever back in Cheltenham I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Napoli suite for 2 nights, clean, spacious and fantastic decor.
Great location near to all key things Cheltenham has to offer, car parking space is a great help and again not to far away when carrying all your bags.
Same problems as a few others with regard to running out of hot water, but we were being greedy having a full bath followed by showers :-)
Lovely place which we would defiantly return to!

Booked the Siena suite at The Strozzi Palace on-line and the screen stated that "today you pay £99" and no mention of any additional charges. The next day when i checked my bank and additional £250 had been taken from the account as a holding fee incase any damages or charges are incurred. When contacting the Strozzi Palace for an explanation they said that we would have been notified on the confirmation email that followed the booking and its in the terms section in the small print http://www.strozzipalace.co.uk/terms-and-conditions.php

From the moment you enter the key code and enter the building the finish is flawless and is very impressive, taking the stairs up to the room and as soon as you open the door the pictures just don't do the place justice. The room is finished to a very good standard with all the little extra features (such as the electric sliding skylight) making such an opulent feel and an instant sense of comfort. The only other thing i could pick on would be when using the shower for too long the hot water tank empties quickly and you may get caught out with a head full of shampoo that you will have to rinse out with cold water.

The surrounding area is great as always and the meal at the http://www.thedaffodil.com/ was second to none.

Go stay at The Strozzi Palace but please be aware that extra charges apply and it would have been nice for them to be more upfront about this. It also takes a while for this to be placed back into your account.

Thank you for your review

In line with most of the hotel industry, holiday apartment or even vehicle
hire companies, we pre-authorise payment cards for the duration of your stay
with us.

It is not necessary to read "the small print" to find this requirement. We
make this clear to guests by placing it in a prominent position on the first
page of both emails confirming booking, and again upon sending access codes.


This guest unfortunately chose not read our emails and, as we explained when
a query was raised, was misled by his own bank who informed him he had been
charged. This preauthorisation was released the day after his departure.

To reiterate, this is NOT a charge. This preauthorisation ensures that the
card is not stolen and that it has at least a £250 credit availability
should it be required.
