“Great B&B with super owners.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and we were very happy with the room and location.
Rita and Fred the owners are very experienced and the facilities they provide are excellent.
They are a helpful couple,very knowledgeable.
We had room 3 which is large and very comfortable.As it's on the front of the property there is some slight road noise but it was not an issue at all.We enjoyed 2 nights sleep.
Followed in the morning by a fantastic breakfast selection.
The property is on the 94 bus route which are every 10 minutes and about 20-30 minute walk to the town centre.
Cheltenham is a great town to visit,lots of character and really good shops and restaurants,especially in the Montpelier area.
A tip regarding the price per night...book direct you will get a cheaper rate than using the on-line booking web-sites.

My wife & I stayed at the Burlington House whilst in Cheltenham to celebrate a friend's birthday. We received a confirmation email a few days beforehand and as the proprietors (Rita & Fred) were due to be out themselves during the evening of our stay, Rita also called on the afternoon just to ensure we were not delayed. All very reassuring.
Rita & Fred are brilliant hosts, and Rita was kind enough to arrange a taxi for us as she knew they would be busy due to it being a races day.
The décor of the whole establishment is beautiful - all Rita's own designs. It's quite modern, but very in-keeping with the age and nature of the house. Our room was very comfortable, and well thought out.
Breakfast was excellent, with a good choice of cereals, fresh fruit salad and yoghurts followed by a great full English, washed down by lovely coffee.
We would highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed for 2 nights with Rita and Fred and they were lovely hosts, they were the perfect balance of warm and welcoming but also conscious of letting us be. Rita gave us some tips on places to go which were really valuable. The B&B itself was beautifully decorated and very cosy. The DVD library that was provided was a lovely touch. I will certainly be recommending to my friends and family.....Also, if you want to go for a drink in the evening I'd recommend Tivoli Restaurant and Bar just down the road.

Spend one evening at the Burlington House for my fiancés Birthday.
Before my arrival I contacted the proprietor to ask whether it was possible to get some extras in as it was a special occasion, she said she would try which was lovely.
When we arrived and parked up we instantly thought the B&B looked lovely from the outside, it is on a main road however we didn't hear any traffic noise.
The B&B is around 5 minute drive into the centre and it is definitely walkable.
Taxi cost us around 5 pound at the end of the night, so perfectly located.
When we were shown our room we couldn't help but notice the place is absolutely spotless and all the furniture of very high standard.
Another plus was the smile on my fiancés face when she seen the chocolates and the Bucks fizz the proprietor bought for us, thank you very much for this.
Breakfast in the morning was an option between a hearty English breakfast and scrambled with salmon, which was there speciality.
We decided to take the healthy option, and my god i am happy we did it was absolutely lovely.
All in all an amazing stay nothing to fault.
Only small thing is that i booked the room with the bath, as i bought rose petals etc as a surprise, however we were allocated the room with a shower.
This however doesn't take anything away from how lovely the B&B

Had the most fantastic stay at Burlington House. Rita & Fred couldn't do enough for us during our stay. Our room was beautifully decorated to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. Rita and Fred made us to a delicious breakfast the next morning and they went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely come back. Thank you Rita & Fred.

Had the most wonderful stay with Rita and Fred, from the moment I arrived to when I left the couple made me feel completely at home. The rooms are pristine and clean, the breakfast is delicious, and Rita goes out of way to make sure your stay is a comfortable one
If I find myself in Cheltenham again, I will not hesitate to visit Rita and Fred at Burlington House again. I highly recommend this place if you want a cosy, homey B&B.

My wife, 10-month old baby and I stayed there for just one night in November and we were all very impressed.

Warm welcome with a lot of attention from Rita. She helped us with takeout menus (we arrived in the evening and the weather was too bad to attempt going out for dinner).

Our room (number 3) was very clean and nicely decorated.
There was a travel baby cot provided with clean sheets provided - just what we needed for the 3 of us to enjoy our night (and the baby did not even cry once throughout the whole stay).

Lovely breakfast in the dining room, very bright and sunny, overseeing the beautiful garden.

Rita even helped us holding the little one while we enjoyed our breakfast, it was a very nice gesture and we could get a break for those 5 minutes.

Potential travellers - please note - this is a private house with 3 guest rooms upstairs, if you're looking for an actual hotel-like experience you won't have that. This is more of a home-stay experience (which suited us extremely well).
It simply does not get any more friendly and welcoming than this, felt much more like visiting family than staying at a hotel.

Minor glitch with credit card payment (no connectivity), but we settled the bill with cash - no issue.
