Holiday Inn Express Cheltenham

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Reception staff very friendly and helpful Rooms clean and beds very comfortable Great location within easy walking distance of town centre. Car parking easy but in NCP car park opposite hotel ( had discount from hotel) Good value for money would recommend hotel to friends visiting Cheltenham

The hotel is as you would expect but the rooms are very cold. They are heated by aircon unit that only come on when the room is occupied. Consequently the room is very cold when you arrive, and cold in the mornings as the unit is too noisy to sleep with on. The service was friendly however and the breakfast good and well presented.

While location is great, my first room had nasty white stains all over the couch. The staff was great to upgrade me to one of the recently modernized rooms - with a broken faucet and a dollar store curtain. If your goal is proximity, this is your place. Staff is very courteous, attention to detail is not here.

City centre location and difficult parking A large pay car park opposite but £10.50 overnight is expensive A large food complex over the road is handy for eating and drinking Not over friendly staff at check in

Always slightly suspicious about chain hotels but this one had an individual feel to it. Very easy, friendly check in. Rooms were pretty spacious and everything we needed was there including free wifi. NCP opposite with discount for guests. Everything spotless and beds proved to be very comfortable and bigger than usual twin beds. Love the pillow arrangements with hard and soft options available. Buffet breakfast had good selection and frequently replenished. We would definitely return. Only issue we had, which is not the fault of the hotel at all, is driving in Cheltenham is an absolute nightmare. You can drive for 3 miles to go the equivalent of one mile on foot.

Newish hotel, standard-excellent, room furnishings, window you can open. Garage-carpark next door (ask for Hotel discount voucher) also open-air park close-by. The hotel is a mere hop and a jump from all the shopping areas and dozens of restaurants – really an ideal location. Satnav helped a speedy arrival in rush hour. After a comfortable sleep, breakfast, included in our deal, was a compltete selection for a ‘full English”’. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful.

Ideally located opposite the brewery quarter and ncp car park close to shopping streets  Very comfortable clean room, good shower room, and very good breakfast  Very pleasant staff at reception / bar  Discounts for some local restaurants and fitness centre across the road.  Definitely recommend

stayed here for 2 nts 20th/22nd oct. We came down by car, arrived at 1pm rooms ready for us. Parked in the NCP next door, given a 25% voucher for payment which worked out for us £21. Room very warm but well equipped for your needs for a short stay. Bed very comfortable. Flat screen tv and tea & coffee available. Nice large shower. Very helpful reception staff. Breakfast, the usual 4 hot items, toast, fruit, yogurts etc. No problems with this hotel.

Stopped at the Holiday Inn Express for a weekend break. The staff were friendly, professional and very courtious. The hotel is modern, clean and functionally decorated. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet at night. Breakfast was tasty with a good selection of quality hot and cold food and beverages. The location for the Town Centre superb. A good hotel with great location.

Lovely hotel and great conference facilities. Very bright and airy conference room. This is in a brilliant location with lots of shops and restaurants to choose from. The staff were very welcoming i defiantly would not hesitate when choosing to book here.
