Badger Towers
Ranked #31 of 68 Cheltenham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 September 2012

We were warmly greeted by Mrs Badger with a much needed cup of tea before being shown to our room which was beautifully decorated and welcoming. There was everything we needed and more.... Tea and coffee were plentiful, the bed was unbelievably comfy and hugged me each morning so I did not want to get up, the large bath was inviting and oh so relaxing with lovely large, soft towels at hand.
Mr Badger served us a delicious breakfast (cooked by Mrs Badger) each morning and was extremely helpful with his knowledge of the area and took an interest in our day and plans.
The lounge was comfortable and our interest in the decorations were explained wonderfully when we asked. I was even given privvy to the notification on the dining room door.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay in this lovely Hotel and would recommend it to anyone needing somewhere to stay in this beautiful area.
Thanks again for making our stay memorable and our Little B is watching over us from the mantlepiece.

Room Tip: The room at the back is very quiet and window opens onto the private garden.

We stayed overnight at this wonderful accommodation, which was extremely clean and tidy. Our double room was on the side of the hotel and was very well appointed with a good selection of teas and coffee available as well as some delicious biscuits. The owner was most helpful in directing us to the town centre to find an eating place and provided us with a very tasty full cooked breakfast made from local produce in the morning. The quintessential touch of badgers in their many guises made the place feel rather special and the leaving gift of a little toy badger was a lovely touch. We would highly recommend this place for a short or long stay in Cheltenham and the surrounding area.

We had relatives visiting from Australia, so on the way up to Liverpool (to see Everton/ United match), decided to stay in Cheltenham overnight. Decided on this guest house, from reviews & the appeal of the name! Certainly lived up to our expectations!

The owners were very pleasant & welcoming. Our rooms were large & furnished very nicely. The bed was quite "squeaky" though. Had tea/coffee making facilities as well. The ensuite was clean & modern, with a good shower. Our room at the back was quiet, overlooking the back gardens, so we had the window open, which was nice, as sometimes you can't have them open if you're in a front room, due to road traffic noise.

We didn't mind the "personal touch" in the lounge; made you feel at home, when we sat down for a cup of tea, before getting ready to go out for dinner. The next morning, we had a wonderful home-cooked English breakfast - great way to start our travels again. Homemade jam & marmalade were delicious.

Our only "negative" comment would be: the tight parking, for a larger car.

The owner obviously took great pride in the guesthouse & was happy to tell us the story of "Badger Towers" & some of the artwork on display! There were badgers everywhere (hence the name!) & the one in our room (in his pyjamas & dressing gown) was really cute. As we were leaving we were given a miniature badger as a momento of our stay - nice touch. A very pleasant stopover!

Room Tip: Rear rooms quieter.

Great location for visiting the many attractions in the area, including the Cotswold villages and many more. Although located on a busy road, traffic went quiet during the night. Room was very comfortable with excellent en-suite facilities, and the breakfast was really good. Agree with others, the lounge was not very welcoming due to to many personal items and toy badgers. Well worth a visit though.

Had a lovely two nigt stay in Badger Towers Cheltenham.
The rooms are well decorated and extremely comfortable with modern en-suites. Tea and coffee facilities with lovely biscuits and a smashing full english breakfast to start the day of well and the home made marmalade certainly lived up to the expectations generated by other reviews . The owner was welcoming and helpful.
We took about 20 minutes to stroll into the centre of Cheltenham through a nice area with shortcuts explained by the owners. Plenty of taxis around in the centre if you don't feel up to the walk but we did notice bus stops near the guesthouse as well.
This was a short trip picked of a map with a pin but we will certainly be returning to Cheltenham and when we do will be looking to book back in at Badgers towers.

Visited here whilst house hunting in the Cotswolds. A pleasant guest house close to Cheltenham with good clean rooms with TV and tea and coffee facilities and a hearty breakfast each day. Owner helpful and welcoming. There is a lounge, but perhaps rather too full of personal items to encourage guests to use it (or maybe just us). Good gastro pub within walking distance and even Cheltenham can be reached on foot if you have the time. Parking on site. Not licensed

I booked here at the last minute on the strength of comments in tripadvisor. I wasn't disappointed. This beautiful house in a gracious area of town has everything to make one's stay comfortable. My room was spacious, the bed very comfy - indeed, I overslept - the breakfast very good, with excellent coffee, tangy home-made marmalade, and a newspaper. The owners are helpful, providing invaluable information on where to eat, and a map to guide me to the concert venue. I ought to have checked on how to work the shower, being one of those people who are flummoxed by unfamiliar appliances. A lovely surprise was the little badger I was given to remind me of my visit!
