Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pixie829 Clean hotel, friendly staff
I had a very good stay in this clean and friendly hotel. I like the free access to the local sports amenities, and the discounts offered by the local restaurants.
There are only two downsides to this hotel. The first is that there is no fridge in the room, and the weather was rather warm during my stay. I appreciate that there is an ice making machine in the hotel lobby, but it would be nice to have a fridge to keep bottled water etc in during your stay.
The other thing is the lack of a safe. Most people travelling for business or leisure have cameras, laptops, tablets etc with them, and it would be nice to be able to lock these away in the evenings if you go out for a meal etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by margie778 good service but bed not too comfortable
This is a good hotel and this is my third visit here. The staff is very helpful and breakfast adequate.
Compared to other Holiday Inn Express however (for instance the one we stayed the day before this one, in Strasbourg) the double bed was a bit too small and the mattress not comfortable, not firm at all in fact and I did not sleep very well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maggie 66 Lovely room. Poor breakfast. Helpful staff
We had a disabled room. It was lovely. Very suitable. Comfortable bed. We slept well. Excellent bathroom with rails.
Unfortunately it was a poor breakfast and little choice.
Staff were helpful. They carried our bags for us.
Parking is expensive if you use the car park. There are only 2 disabled spaces opposite the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soozeeq1 good location, free breakfast.
stayed whilst attending the Ukulele Festival of GB.
Good location within walking distance of shops, bars restaurants and town hall, Staff could have been a bit more helpful. Ran out of milk at breakfast and when we told the staff the two females on duty didn't really seem bothered.
On arrival we were told that we had free wifi but failed to tell us that we need a code from them to log in. Hence I spent about 20 mins trying to get the wifi without success. When we did get the code it was easy to connect to wifi.
We got back to the hotel at approx 11.30 pm and joined about 30 other ukulele players for a jamming session in the bar. We were even joined by some girls on a hen party. The hotel staff were quite happy with us playing our ukuleles and singing our hearts out. We were playing till after 2 am in the morning!!They did not try to get rid of us. We frelt really relaxed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Festival Goer Great location and friendly staff.
I stayed at the Cheltenham Holiday Inn Express with two of my children for the Science Festival. It was an easy walk into the town so very convenient. The Hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and it was an added bonus to have an outside seating area - where we played cards!
My only negative comment would be that the room was very warm indeed and the controls seemed to have little effect.
Also - and this was not a fault of the hotel - the revellers on the Saturday night showed scant consideration for those trying to sleep at 3.30 am!!!
As a Mother travelling with children I felt safe, well looked after - the staff were incredibly polite, friendly and only too happy to provide us with the toothbrushes we had forgotten! - and very pleased with the fruit, yoghurt, croissants and cereal (my request for soya milk instantly satisfied) that filled us all up for the day!.
Will certainly return for the next festival.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lesbri43 Staff are excellent.
I stayed 5-7th June in room 419 which was great, we then had to stay a further night and was put in room 219 which unfortunately had a very stained chair plus a stain on the carpet. However as this was a last minute stay (my son was in hospital) we did not mention this on our departure.
The welcome the staff gave us and the help with enabling us to stay an extra night plus looking after our luggage was superb. All the staff are friendly and helpful and as we come to Cheltenham regularly we always endeavour to stay here.
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel especially as the location is perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WayneMc This has to be the Best Holiday Inn in the UK
I am a disabled guest and I basically needed a room for the evening before a medical procedure.
I was greeted by an excellent male receptionist who made me immediately feel at ease. He showed genuine concern for me as I was in a wheelchair and provided a first class service. He ensured that both me and my wife were aware of all the features of the hotel and the surrounding area.
The room was huge. The walk-in bathroom was excellent and the shower magnificent.
The breakfast was by far the best I have experienced in any Express, indeed it was the best I have had in many hotels in recent months.
Free WI FI, free newspapers and huge discounts for restaurants in the local area.
Finally, the receptionist approached us at breakfast and addressed me by name - he was concerned to know if I had had a pleasant stay.
The check-out staff were equally efficient and again wanted assurance that they had provided an excellent service.
I would dearly like the opportunity to return

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by julianop Nearly, but not quite there
Nice clean facility, though difficult to get to. Breakfast was decent, though warm plates and a few more cooked food options and a little more variation would make it really good.
Layout of the kitchen area was cramped, as is so often the cases in such places; until you know the layout you find yourself retracing your steps a few times.
Room was too small (narrow). There was an open style wardrobe for clothes, but it was barely large enough. My suitcase dominated the room, and I had to locate it by the window.
My bathroom smelled awfully of old cigarette smoke; the clerk said that was caused by the ventilation system. Other than that the bathroom was clean, the faucet and shower head modern and properly functioning - very nice, in fact.
I can't accept the logic of a hotel accepting business guests without an iron and ironing board as standard.
equipment. The wardrobe area was too small to allow one to hide such equipment anyway.
I had intended to stay in this facility for two weeks, but the cramped nature of the room just overwhelmed me, and I would have moved to a different hotel had my plans not changed for other reasons.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful, no disappointments at all there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Auld yin Good night at Cheltenham
Really smart hotel with excellent staff - particularly at Reception.. Indeed the initial welcome was just as good as the very first Holiday Inn welcome which we experienced in Birmingham in 1973 just after they had opened up in this country for the first time.
Our only grouse was the fact that the duvets were too hot for the time of year. Something lighter would be much appreciated.

Stayed here once just for one night. The room itself was nice and modern, clean and welcoming. There were a few problems however;
The air conditioning unit was situated above the door and far away from the bed, meaning the rest of the bedroom was extremely warm and made for an uncomfortable night.
The TV also seemed to be faulty, immediately turning itself off after trying to turn it on.
