We stayed on a 3 night summer saver special deal, great deal and am so happy we chose the Ellenborough as the staff were so passionate about the hotel and the service was highest we have seen in a hotel. From the lovely chap who takes your bags and oversees the hotel, Poppy lovely receptionist and Camille who served us in the dining room nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff they were all amazing.
We stayed in a classic room no.3 which was a fantastic room, exquisite bed, pillows and small but perfect bathroom and it came with the best view in the hotel. The large bay windows overlook the main grounds with views of Cheltenham racecourse in the far distance, during the racing season they have their own private entrance into the racecourse and take you down there in range rovers that is the sort of service you can expect from Ellenborough. We did look at one of the suites the Istabraq which was beautiful but I preferred our room no. 3 as though not one of the largest it definitely came with the best view.
The food was amazing we had Sunday lunch and dinner in the beaufort fine dining restaurant, the chateauxbriand was to die for and do try the welsh stilton it's superb, amazing chef and great sommelier Tobias who on listening to the sort of red wines I like recommended a Fronsac which was spot on perfect. We had breakfast on the terrace listening to the local sheep in the field next door it was bliss. 3 Course dinner is £50 per person but worth every penny and great range of wines starting from from £24 upwards to the sky's the limit.....
It's a beautiful hotel, full of history and we will return in winter for the blazing log fires. We used the pool and the spa, both were great with fresh robes, towels, water available etc.. loved the Penhaligon soaps etc.... small gym available didn't use as life's too short!
Very close to Broadway, Bourton on the water and the Slaughters, all great villages about 20mins drive away so good location to discover the Cotswold.
We will definitely go back to Ellenborough cannot wait for Winter and log fires, a perfect hotel.
