comfortable hotel in Cheltenham

We found our stay to be extremely comfortable with comfy beds, which gave us a good night's sleep. Our evening meal was enjoyable too. Everything positive, except we were not aware of the high PARKING CHARGE of £6 for our 24 hour stay, that we only found out about on our arrival! However the kind lady at reception did remove this charge, as I was not aware of it when I booked the room. Overall I thought this hotel was very good value and I would use it again!

Very pleasing

Overall we were very pleased with our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff were very good. Breakfast (an extra £10 per person) offered good value and to be recommended. We enjoyed the leisure facilities. We disliked the interconnecting door between our room and the next. The noise the people in the next room made was so loud that it sounded as if they were in our room. This woke us in the early hours and kept us awake for a long period of time. We would suggest that you request NOT to have one of these rooms!

OK but needs more for that money!

While everything at this hotel looks amazing, the location and all the added extras really let it down. The Thistle would be ideal for in-the-week business trips but, as myself and my partner were away for a weekend break we felt a little let down, First of all the location id not ideal for social breaks, there are good transport links (bus, taxi) but being stuck on a roundabout near a major road kind of takes the edge off. Had we been in a car I would've had to mention car parking charges, charges for somewhere you're already paying £80+ per night? Glad I took the train! Also at the price per room I was not happy at having to pay for breakfast, especoially as I was not told breakfast was NOT included when booking in. All in all a good quality hotel......if the boss is paying!!

Overnight Stoppover

We stayed overnight on our way to Cornwall. Very reasonably priced this hotel is clean and as plenty to offer. We slept well in the big bed and would stay here again if passing this way.

I found this hotel to be excellent in everything. The staff were very helpful and facilities were excellent. The location was easy to find and very central to Cheltenham. I would stay at this hotel again or other Thistle hotels.
