The room was very clean and comfortable. They do a pretty good breakfast in quite a nice restaurant, and we also liked the bar/lounge which was very comfortable and quite quiet while we were there, although it was predictably pricey. We didn't have dinner at the hotel, although we did eat at the attached pub (The Clock Tower) which is a cheap and cheerful Wetherspoons-type affair. There isn't really anywhere else to eat within easy walking distance, but it's only a short taxi ride to the centre of Cheltenham.
The grounds out the back are nice but more to look at than for walking round as they aren't *that* big. It's nice to be right on the edge of Cheltenham though as it feels like it is close to the countryside. The photos make it look like you're staying in a Georgian mansion, which isn't really true, as only the reception and bar is in there and all the rooms are in a more modern, large, flat-roofed extension to the side. You don't really notice this though and it didn't really bother us - it's perfectly nice inside.
Overall, for a long weekend away at the advance price we paid, we were very happy with it and would recommend it.
