“great little hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

8 of us between the ages of 25-70 years stayed in 4 rooms for 1 night for a family celebration and we all felt that this is a little gem of a hotel. Its in a quiet side street, really close to the centre's shops, bars and restaurants and the older part, so no need for buses or taxis. The parking permit supplied by the owners meant no costly car park fees either, which was great. The hotel was lovely and warm on a cold day, the rooms clean and spacious, great shower in the en-suite, really comfortable beds, the breakfast had plenty of choice (with good quality bacon and sausage) - the little honesty bar is also a great idea for a quiet drink at the end of the evening. Sophie the owner was really welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. We have all said if we ever come back to stay in Cheltenham we would definately return here

Could not fault the hotel or the service. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we rang the bell. Lovely and warm, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast. Although the hotel was full we could not hear anyone else when in our room Close to town center. I have no problem with recommending this hotel to anyone

Arrived Saturday at noon. Greeted by Sophie (owner) and made to feel welcome, it was like visiting relatives. The house was lovely and warm, it is conveniently situated near the town centre so no need to take the car. We stayed in room10, very spacious,clean and tidy and a nice size en-suite. Fabulous breakfast, choice of cereals, nuts, yogurt, croissants followed by a full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend this B&B to family and friends, excellent value.

Room Tip: In a quiet area

Have stayed here twice now on business and it's simply superb.

The rooms are excellently furnished, the service from the owners (Gerry & Sophie) is wonderful (almost like living at home, though my wife won't cook me a full English in the morning) and it's very conveniently located in the heart of Cheltenham.

Don't think it can be bettered anywhere else in Cheltenham.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the front, then you won't hear Wetherspoons if, like me, you sleep with a window...

Today we arrived home from a short 2 night break and cannot fault the location of this hotel, everything you need is minutes away. Greg and Sophie who run the hotel are very welcoming and very friendly and nothing is too much bother. Our room (room 2) was lovely and clean (im fussy), the ensuite was small but at the end of the day it doesnt really matter for what you have to do in there. The breakfast was very good, plenty of selection and the full english is lovely. I will definitely be going back here.

We booked in to the Abbey Hotel Cheltenham with the view to having a look around the Cotswolds. Firstly the owner Greg was most helpful on the phone in giving us some helpful information on how to get to Cheltenham after arriving at Heathrow. We were given a great welcome after having just flown to the UK from Australia and shown to a very comfortable and clean room where we stayed for 6 nights. The hotel is very conveniently located near shops, restaurants and importantly to us, the bus station. We use public transport and were able to visit several beautiful Cotswold villages by bus, the whole surrounding area is just a delight.
We are an elderly couple and found this hotel perfect for comfort, cleanliness and most of all very friendly staff and a great breakfast each morning to get us going for the day.
Thanks Abbey Hotel, we might just see you again, who knows.
