We stayed at this hotel for a wedding in Cheltenham, since we knew we'd not be in the room for very long we picked a cheap central hotel.
Firstly the decor was so tacky and cheap. The strange glass sliding door bathroom which came off the runner frequently was odd enough without the curtains that looked like a few cookie monsters had died to make them.
The hotel did nothing to help us check in earlier than 3pm and the car park was so difficult to manoeuvre into it was crammed with tiny spaces. Nothing here was complimentary. The parking is £5 per night plus £1 per hour extra if you need to park before a 3pm check in. The wifi was £1.99 an hour! I genuinely didn't realise that places still charged for wifi none of the other budget hotel chains do.
The TV was broken in all of our three rooms due to a problem with the signal that they were waiting to get repaired. Since we had an hour to kill we asked if we could get free wifi to watch TV online and were told we couldn't because the problem with the TV was beyond their control.
The bed was very uncomfortable I could feel the springs through the mattress.
We were woken up at 3am by drunken shouting that sounded directly outside our window. Very noisy location.
The rooms seemed clean enough and the staff were professsional if not overtly friendly. I would not recommend staying here. There's a Holiday Inn around the corner that I'll be staying at if I ever need to come back to Cheltenham.
