Where to stay
Steeped in history, the Queens Hotel boasts a lavish Palladian-style edifice, coupled with Greek and Roman influences, forming a unique part of the famous Georgian spa town of Cheltenham. The hotel’s royal roots offer guests a unique insight into this opulent era for a truly memorable experience.
The majestic white building of Malmaison’s hotel in Cheltenham looks right at home just around the corner from the serene Montpellier Gardens, with the restaurant boasting a glass conservatory ‘Garden Room’ and beautiful terrace. Although the hotel rests in the very heart of Cheltenham, you’ll instantly feel the calm and privacy of this sensitively-converted but utterly modern villa and surrounding grounds.
Hotel du Vin features 49 distinctive rooms and suites, each with a huge hand-sprung mattress, delightfully soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, and a deep roll-top bath or monsoon shower. Discover a world of fine wines in the Laroche wine tasting room, or sip your favourite in the bar with friends. Tuck into lovingly prepared seasonal fare in our trademark Bistro, or dine al fresco.
