we stayed at the hotel on Boxing day and even though it was raining the whole time, we enjoyed this very old hotel. We occupied with the main suite with the jacuzzi. breakfast was plentiful and made with fresh ingredients. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This hotel was booked by my boyfriend for 2 nights (21-23 July) We arrived at 8pm after spending the day in Cheltenham. Did not struggle with parking, although I can see how it can be a problem.

We have stayed here before in one of the three garden rooms - never the main building. The hotel is old and the literature warns you to be careful moving about the place but nothing prepares you for the precipitous stairs that lead to rooms 8-11 located on the third floor. Parking is very tight at the rear of the...
