“A Touch of Class tucked away in the beautiful Victorian Cotswolds...”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Me and my mum had always wondered what it would be like to live in a terraced townhouse, with the feel of oldie-worldy wealth! Something that not many of us have the luxury of! Well, this beautifully preserved double-converted guesthouse lets you feel just that. All the feel of a Victorian home, with the added bonuses of 21st Century mod-cons!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights when we attended a family wedding in Cheltenham and as soon as you enter, you can feel the care and attention that goes into keeping this house special - a hidden delight.

Unfortunately for us, we arrived in what appeared to be some sort of typhoon (rain like never before and huge gusts of wind), but this was all forgotten once the doors closed behind us and we were greeted by, who we assumed to be, the proprietor, who led us into a lounge with ready-made pots of tea and coffee. Bliss!

The lounge room is located to the left of Reception and as kitted out with a full self-service [mini-style] bar (a fridge with beers/soft drinks/wine and wine/spirits on display in a cabinet), comfy sofas and an open fire. Complimentary newpapers and a selection of books are at hand if you just wanted a relaxing morning before commencing your stroll across the park/green and past the wonderfully refurbed Pump Rooms (where our wedding was taking place the following day).

I believe that the house itself is two Victorian houses converted into one and has two floors housing [my guess would be around] 12-ish rooms (with two more on the Ground Floor), all elegantly decorated with a homely, confortable feel. As for the beds...so comfortable, we nearly overslept and missed the wedding! (Something I don't think many people can say about a hotel bed!!)

Breakfast is included in the room price and caters for anything from a Full English to cereral to Continental breakfasts, with free-flowing juices and hot bevvies.

There is a patrons car park [free of charge] to the rear (my only 'grumble' is that discovering the car park is pretty difficult if you are not familiar with the layout of terraced streets such as these - which we are not!). There is, however, ample on-street parking for which you are able to have a permit for (enquire at Reception). Although, when I say 'ample', please try and remember that this is a residential street and trying to find a parking space (pretty much anywhere these days) can be arduous!

All-in-all, this hotel was pretty fabulous! Not cheap, but would Queen Victoria have settled for anything less? ;-)

Room Tip: All of the rooms at this townhouse are beautifully-decorated throughout! I wouldn't choose a ro...

Well located, short walk to restaurants and pubs, free parking on site, small but comfortable hotel style rooms, very responsive and cooperative service, great breakfasts. Would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: lower level easier for luggage

Arrived a bit early but made welcome with a pot of coffee and some info on the best places to eat etc. the rooms were very good standard and everything worked ! A quiet hotel but busy and comfortable rooms to relax in . Drinks are available in the lounge and you just help yourself and say what you had on a sheet of paper to be charged to your room. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is really nice .the only fault I could find would be that the bacon was burnt but still edible, ask for it lightly cooked if you don't like it crispy ! Would definitely recommend and stay here again !

Located in a lovely part of Cheltenham within easy walking distance of the shops. We received a very welcoming and helpful reception when we arrived. The room was large, comfortable and very clean. There's a self service bar which refreshingly operates on an honesty basis and reflects what a nice place this is to stay. Breakfast is cooked to order and is excellent.

Recently returned from our 4th stay at The Cheltenham Townhouse. As ever, the staff were very helpful, rooms clean and welcoming and the breakfast superb...already booked to go back again in 2014.

The location is an ideal walk to the Town centre and the staff are always very happy to book a taxi in the evening if going a little further afield. Would recommend the Townhouse as a great place to stay.

Just returned from spending 2 nights in this lovely hotel. Located just beyond the almost restored Pittville Park gates, just a short walk from the park itself. Based in one of the many elegant terraces, the hotel is welcoming and comfortable, the staff helpful and charming.
Our room was one of the smaller ones on the garden level, but clean, smart and very comfortable. I'm sure the rooms on the higher levels would be very spacious.
Breakfast was excellent.
An easy stroll into the main shopping and restaurant areas.
Not the cheapest hotel but worth the price.

We spent six nights at The Chelthenham Townhouse in early June. This is a terrific property with wonderful staff. The owner, Jayne, and her staff could not have been nicer. They made great suggestions for sites to visit and neighborhood restaurants. The included breakfast was absolutely incredible. The rooms are very well decorated and the location was very convenient. Parking was also included. We could not have been more satisfied with our stay there!

Room Tip: We had a very large room on the ground floor that included a kitchen
