I booked the Bradley after looking for a romantic getaway after our wedding. The Bradley did not disappoint in any respect. On arrival we were cheerily greeted and welcomed for our early check-in and handed an on-street parking permit.
Shown around the sumptuous home you could have been forgiven for thinking you had stepped back into time. The Bradley is a classy guesthouse rather than a hotel, and you can sense the care and attention that 3 generations of the family have poured into every aspect of the place.
The location in the Montpellier quarter is perfect for exploring Cheltenham on foot, exploring the local streets you will find quaint delicatessens, boutique style shopping and lovely bars and restaurants. The road itself is not a main thoroughfare, but is reasonably busy during peak periods.
All rooms were superbly apportioned with high ceilings and generous light and airy bedrooms. Our room was the four poster room (#4) overlooking the street and was delightful. The lovely finishing touches and the additional hearts adorning mirrors was a very sweet touch. The bathroom was large, modern and as other reviewers have said, has good plumbing. The attention to detail extended to lovely Penhaligon's toiletries, and hand soap. A small (siletn) fridge with bottled water, some treats and a jug of fresh milk for tea and coffee :o)
The beds and bed-linen, as you would expect were sumptuous and comfortable, though it did get rather warm! I think mainly due to my mis-setting the thermostat.
Breakfast was wonderful with local produce in evidence and the choice of the full Bradley was inevitable for me, though the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs would have been equally delicious. All round perfection. We will definitely be coming back for another visit.
