We had travelled through Cornwall and Devon for a week and the last night we headed back and ended up in Beaumont House wondering what on earth the 'out of Africa' room would be like. First of all, it really is impressive looking but it's also spacious and soooo comfortable. The huge bed was the best sleep I have had in a week, especially compared to some of the over priced rooms (over £200 per night) we had stayed in. The spa bath and salts were relaxing and most welcome after the rubbish winding roads from Devon. I then walked downstairs into the lounge in my socks (owner seemed to be very happy when I asked if it was ok to be in my socks). Then happily poured myself a whisky from the honesty bar and relaxed in their huge lounge whilst relaxing music played in the background. At that point my partner reminded me that she was there too and could do with some conversation but still I had a smile on my face. In fact it was so good, we decided to stay one more night in the loft room and go to work early (2.5 hour drive again). Over 2 nights we have fallen completely for this little boutique hotel and Cheltenham. We also loved the fact the owners and staff were always at hand and so friendly with a
passion for high standards and quality products, breakfast was a real treat too. Definitely a place not to be missed - we will be returning!
