We had a cottage very close to the hotel everything we needed and using all the facilities of the hotel apart from rather noisy race goers one night in the dining room it was excellent. Able to use the restaurant some night and bar food other nights. Very good breakfast before going racing at Cheltenham

Myself and my partner stayed overnight in one of the cottages. It was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean and very spacious for 2 people. It had 2 bathrooms, one with a bath, one with huge shower cubicle. The reception manager David was very pleasant and helpful during our stay and more than happy to help with directions and general information....

I've never stayed in a small hotel with such comfortable feeling like this. The hotel is well decorated. The room is cozy, with the stuffed puppy lying on the bed. At the lobby, there is a living room with the real fireplace! Around the hotel, there are many attractive spots to explore, so better check-in quick, spend as much time...
