Cheltenham Charmer

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Location, old time charm, breakfast and parking included.
Cons: Not really anything
Location: There is not much historic to see in the town, but it is close to many other little villages. The public footpath system can be reached on foot.
This hotel is located in a historic old building that was an inn in the 1400's. As such, the building had a lot of old charm that also resided in the room. No lift, but only one flight of stairs. Old fireplace (not working) floors and walls a little off-kilter just added to the ambience. The hotel had parking in the back. The room was large. The bathroom was redone and modern. We had a wonderful view out into the bustling square. The breakfast hours were a little later (8:30-9:30) and limited, but the food was great and made to order. There was an old-time small bar and a restaurant in the hotel. We had drinks in the bar but did not eat in the restaurant just because they did not have what we were looking for. You can walk everywhere!

Good location but needs upgrading.

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: The location, food and friendly staff.
Cons: The hotel needs to be thoroughly cleaned and a certain amount of renovation is required.
Location: Very central for travelling to all places of interest in the area.
We thought the staff were very efficient and friendly. The breakfast was very tasty and we ate at the hotel on two occasions and, again, the food was excellent. Our only problem was that the hotel is in need of redecoration and unfortunately our room was more shabby than chic. In addition it was not as clean as it should have been - the carpet was dirty and the bathroom was very dusty and dirty.

Pros: Central part of town but quiet. Friendly waiter service at meal in evening.
Cons: Breakfast was disappointing- no vegetarian and limited.Size of beds and smaller room than expected- double bed size was standard.
Location: Lots of lovely towns and villages to visit.
Only saw owner/manager on first day. Hotel rooms did not meet the expectation based on pictures and toiletries were not replaced after first day!. Television did not work very well and cracked tiles in the bathroom made the room look a little jaded. We are vegetarian and asked for cooked breakfast but without the meat, obviously! We got one egg, one tomato and one mushroom. The waiter who served us in the evening was however very friendly and his service was good, although the Chilean wine we asked for was actually South African.

Not Quite As Described

Posted Aug 31, 2014
The public areas of the hotel are to a good standard. The bar offers a good range of real ales, wine, spirits etc. The restaurant is light and airy, although we only ate breakfast there, this was always served fresh. The staff are welcoming, professional and keen to please. We spent three nights in the Roe room so can only comment on that room, I guess you would say the theme is 'rustic' it was clean and tidy but basic. The bathroom is accessed by two steep steps towards one corner of the room, it is clean and tidy, but the real disappointment was the shower. It is over the bath as stated but operates from a mixer tap arrangement, so dribbles out like a poor watering can and offers little to no temperature control. I can only assume the 'Grohe Shower' supplier was closed on the day they installed this particular bathroom.

Overpriced and shabby

Posted Jul 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very uncomfortable room, certainly not worth £330 for three nights. Cheap beds an furniture, such as it was. Would not recommend and will not stay again.

Beautiful old building in the centre of Stowe

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: An old and beautiful building
Cons: Nothing
Location: Stowe is beautiful and full of interesting shops
A lovely old hotel, good restaurant-quality food, comfortable rooms (if a bit lopsided with sloping floors from age!) and very helpful staff - breakfast was from 9-10 when I stayed, but when I mentioned I had to leave at 8 they happily made a 7.30 early breakfast for me! Nothing was too much trouble. A gem.
