Reasonable hotel for price and central location
Old style rooms and corridors, comfortable with tea and coffee and biscuits provided. Central location makes this ideal if out around town.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great price, comfortable nights stay.
Very helpful and polite staff on the desk, apartment was just a few doors down from the actual hotel and had a separate lounge room which was unexpected but useful. Only slight shame was no heating apart from behind the curtains so couldn't turn the heat on and have the curtains closed for fear of burning the place down! Great price, overall comfortable stay.

You get what you pay for
I stayed in this hotel for only one night and spent the majority of my time there asleep. I review should be read in that context. Ie booked it because of its convenient location, good price, and a library of some of the poorest Trip Advisor reviews that I have seen. I was curious to know if it could be as poor as the reviews indicated. My conclusion was that it is not, that some of the reviews are a little harsh, but it is easy to understand them. The hotel has a fantastic location, right in the middle of Cheltenham, but it is old and tired and in need of some tender loving care. My room was curious. It had no ensuite bathroom, but had a shower in the corner of the room, it had no toilet, which was located across the corridor and shared, it had a microwave oven and a full-size family fridge. So why did I rate it highly? The bed was comfortable, the room was warm and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and the price was good. I would guess that the hotel will not exist in its current form for much longer. It’s worth spending the night here before it disappears.
