Planned a surprise Saturday overnight stay for my partner for her birthday.
It could not have been more perfect. The grounds and surroundings are breathtaking, such a peaceful place.
Walking up from the car park you can't help but feel overwhelmed by the architecture and it fills you with expectation as you enter through to reception.
Internally, the building is traditional yet quirky and you can't help but look around at every single detail and decoration.
The staff, without exception are wonderful. Helpful, reverend and pleasant.
The room we had was outside in the courtyard and although it was a short walk from the main hotel, this didn't matter as it was wonderfully spacious, with a beautiful bathroom.
The spa is second to none, I would certainly recommend getting a treatment there with the very experienced staff.
We had cocktails in the bar before dinner, which were most excellent.
Dinner in the Beaufort suite was divine, we had a beautiful bottle of wine suggested by the very knowledgable sommelier.
At night, the hotel was pin-drop quiet. Which is generally what you don't tend to expect of hotels and so was a very welcome bonus.
Breakfast again, was delicious. Locally sourced food, fresh and tasteful.
I cannot fault our stay and it made a special day even more special.

We just spent 2 nights here to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. It was a relaxing break with wonderful food and drink. We enjoyed the spa and went on a great 6 mile walk on the common that we accessed from opposite the hotel. The staff are really helpful and friendly which made the stay so enjoyable. I'd totally recommend this hotel for a romantic break.

We have had afternoon tea at the Ellenborough a few times and it is amazing! Lovely large, yet cosy siting room with crackling log fire. Staff are very respectful and helpful making you feel very special. Reception staff greet you with a warm smile and are very helpful, Sarah was on reception when we last visited and she was very professional, yet warm and welcoming. Waiting staff very attentive. Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon

Room Tip: not the cheapest but possibly one of the best

We had an amazing dinner in the Beaufort Room this evening. The food, service and location were all fantastic.

I've eaten in a lot of places in Cheltenham (including Le Champignon Sauvage) and this is the best dinner out I've had in the area. Could not recommend it highly enough.

Had lunch in the Brasserie for my birthday - the ambience, food and service were without fault. We asked for a tour of the dining room and were given a leisurely tour of the dining rooms and great hall.

Perfect place for a dinner party as there are rooms of various sizes for private dining.

We stayed for one night 22 Feb and absolutely everything was wonderful. Have no complaints and whilst expensive it really is worth it if you have something to celebrate - or even if you don't!
I did ask for a room in the main building which we got and we did use the spa as well - very hot in there! All food and breakfast were good as were the staff.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip, and the it was beautiful from start to finish, the staff were so polite and helpful, it really is the small things that make a difference. carrying bags, valet parking, holding umbrellas for you in the rain whilst walking to your room, and even using a torch to walk you back. My room was gorgeous, the bed was massve and the pillows are amazing. I used the spa facilities (not the pool as its outdoors and it was very cold when i stayed) but the sauna, steam and jacuzzi were very nice. the food is very tasty, dinner and breakfast. I would definately recommend stying here.
