A Great Find!

We have just spent a weekend in Cheltenham visiting family and stayed at The Battledown. We had a lovely quiet comfortable room with a spotlessly clean and warm en-suite. Breakfast was cooked to order and very tasty. Sarah and Simon were extremely attentive and Isabella is a cutie! We will definitely be back!

Fabulous B&b Find In Cheltenham

We found The Battledown via Trip Advisor and our experience exceeded our expectations. This B&B is more akin to a luxury boutique hotel, with a warm, personal welcome to boot. Our room was cozy but nicely appointed, freshly decorated, with every amenity at our fingertips -- including slippers and hottie botties. Breakfast was delicious (veggie fry-up for my husband, gorgeous salmon, eggs & chives for me), with homemade jams and banana bread too. We'd happily stay there again and will look for an excuse to visit Cheltenham sooner than later.

This B&B is very grand on arrival and great parking. We were checked in and Sarah kindly made us feel really welcome with a cup of tea and biscuits. We stayed in room 6 and this was very spacious with a clean and modern on-suite and a very comfy bed, I even commented to Sarah at breakfast the next day that it was better than the one at home, well done the Battledown I'm normally the one that don't sleep and my husband snores away. Breakfast is home cooked and beautiful with homemade banana bread, marmalade and jam, yummy. A great stay, very clean, you will not be disappointed I promise. Well worth booking.

The Battledown is a very impressive building so our first impressions were that this would be a great place to stay. Car parking at the back of the hotel was good and the gardens are beautiful with home grown strawberries that were served at breakfast! Owners Sarah and Simon ( and their daughter Isabella) are clearly passionate about their business and this shows in everything they do - from the tea / coffee and biscuits on arrival to the beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean room to the freshly cooked breakfast. Service was superb - very attentive and friendly not stuffy. Home made jam and marmalade was a lovely extra! Excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend and stay again ourselves.

First Rate Experience 

I stayed her for one night prior to The Cheltenham Circular Walk. On arrival early evening, I was offered a freshly made pot of tea or coffee. This came with shortbread fingers and chocolated digestives. The owners Sarah and Simon were very accomodating and offered to prepare a full cooked breakfast an hour earlier than they would normally do on a Sunday, so that I could start the Challenge promptly well stoked up for the marathon distance. I chose scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and chives, which was perfectly cooked and served with a toasted muffin. Jam and marmalade is home made and delicious, with a great selection of cereals, yoghurt and fruit, also home baked fruit loaf. Room was comfortable, clean, warm and there was ample storage. Mira shower was easy to adjust and flow good. I woul definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Absolutely great value for money coupled with friendly service in a beautiful house. Free private parking is an added bonus. The double room was small but beautifully decorated with good fittings/shower. Breakfast was excellent quality with homemade items also on offer. Only slight downside for us was it was served 7.30-8.30am which is a little early for us usually, but understand the reasoning for this. Only a 15/20min stroll into the centre of town. Great new business, we wish them well, if they continue as they are I can see this being THE place to stay in Cheltenham!... for us anyway!

Great B&b! 

I stayed at the Battledown for five nights in May, 2012. I had one of the downstairs refurbished rooms, and it was truly a wonderful room. Every convenience for the traveller was thought of by the owners. Simon and Sarah went out of their way to help in whatever way they could with any questions, and made sure I had an early breakfast on my departure day. Speaking of breakfasts, what amazing choices to start the day! I was able to skip lunch every day due to the extensive and filling breakfast. Very comfy bed and an incredibly powerful shower insured that both the start and end of the day were excellent. I would not hesitate to stay there again when next I am in Cheltenham. Kudos to Simon and Sarah!

A Truly Relaxing Stay 

Our recent stay at The Battledown was simply wonderful.


With beautiful and clean rooms (and an amazing power shower!), genuinely warm hosts who are attentive but not intrusive, a delicious spread for breakfast with a good balance of hot and cold food including homemade jams, we really enjoyed our stay over the Easter weekend.


Rarely do I manage to feel at home at a B&B but Sarah and Simon were wonderful hosts. They welcomed us on our very first day with a pot of tea, addressed us by our first names, remembered our breakfast preferences from the previous days, took care to top up the little milk jug for our tea when it ran low, left little chocolate Easter eggs on the bed, etc. It's personal touches like these that make The Battledown stand out from the rest.


Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Good Weekend

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in Cheltenham, made even better by our stay at The Battledown. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and our three year old son liked playing with the owners daughter. The room was very comfortable and our son had a proper single bed in the family room rather than a zed-bed or fold out sofa bed which is often the case. Breakfast was great with homemade jam and marmalade and delicious banana bread and tasty locally sourced bacon. We wished we were staying longer! Will definately stay there again next time we are in Cheltenham.

A Great Weekend.

We found the B&B by chance and so glad we did. My boyfriend and I and our two friends went to see Gloucester and Leicester playing Rugby.

Due to this we needed an early check in, this was arranged and we were warmly welcomed. Sarah gave us information on bars and restaurants and where was good to go after the rugby and then organised a taxi for us.

We eventually arrived back at the B&B very tired and thankfully we had a beautifully clean room and very comfortable bed, and had a wonderful nights sleep.

The following morning we woke for breakfast and were treated to fantastic food with friendly service.

This is definitely where we will be staying next time we're up for the Rugby.

I have stayed at this great little guest house before, the first time was good and now with new owners if not just as good it might be just a little better.


This guest house is possibly the best I have stayed in so far, The two new owners are a great pair, we arrived at five got a warm welcome, shown to our rooms which again where spotless, well decorated and comfortable, we explained that we would be leaving earlier in the morning than what breakfast is served, this was not a problem as we where offered some bacon buttys to take with us in the morning, they even whent as far to fill my travel mug with coffe for the road ahead.


I will always try and stay here when working this way as it is home from home with great people.


Thank you both for making it easier to work away. 5 stars from me
