Having stayed at the equally delightful, Magdalen Chapter in Exeter we had high expectations of our stay at the Montpellier Chapter in Cheltenham Spa. We weren't disappointed.
Beautifully restored building formally used as accommodation for Cheltenham ladies college this delightful hotel has lots to offer its guests. Free wifi throughout, common areas are relaxing, warm and comfortable with open fires adding to the atmosphere. We stayed in a 2nd floor double which despite being a little small was very well equipped and thoughtfully laid out. Nespresso machines, iPods and flat screen TVs are standard in each room and the complimentary mini bar with water, lager, soft drinks and fresh milk, is a nice touch. Lighting is well thought out with switches in all the places you need them. Subtle bathroom night lighting is always a sign that some careful thought has gone into guest comfort. Switches and plugs on each side of the bed meant no scrabbling around looking for phone charge points or wandering around trying to find that elusive light switch.
The breakfast, which was part of our room rate was superb. A buffet selection of cold items followed by a set menu with a large selection of freshly prepared hot food. The breakfast chef's workstation is part of the dining room so you know it's cooked to order.
The bar is equally good with lots of areas to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. We sampled the bar snack menu and again couldn't fault the food or the service.
Staff were attentive and friendly throughout our stay and contrary to some of the recent reviews on here we had no problems whatsoever with service.
The hotel has a slightly odd approach to twin rooms, I understand that there aren't many of them and because they are larger than the doubles attract a higher room rate.
All in all a superb weekend away in a beautiful hotel and gorgeous spa town.
