Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kohl9361 Minimal amenities, excellent staff, breakfast and location
Great location near shopping and broad selection of dining. The continental breakfast was better than any I've experienced anywhere and the staff was exceptionally pleasant. The room although fairly small was well maintained and clean. Unfortunately there were absolutely no room amenities (clock, iron, soaps or wash clothes) which I found odd and the wireless signal was poor at best.

Once again we stayed at this hotel while visiting Cheltenham, but because of the street noise on our previous stay, we asked for a room away from the road. For some reason the hotel was particularly busy, so we were put in a room still on the side road but off the main road. We had to accept that the traffic noise was there to a degree, but people coming in all through the night, obviously having had a good night out and still wanting to share it with those who were trying to sleep was just too much.
Traffic noise would not be obvious if the hotel had double glazing and perhaps notices up around the hotel reminding people to remember that others value their sleep would not go amiss (Premier Inn has certainly excelled in this department) AND could not the evening/night staff on the desk remind those noisy revellers as they come into the hotel that others are sleeping.
We really like this hotel, but feel a lot could be done to be fair to all and really do not want to look for alternative accommodation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mt21 stay adequate
Overall not too bad an experience. Room clean and tidy, slept reasonably well once the buses stopped running.
Live duo in the bar at night were good and a surpirse.
Good job restaurants were nearby.
Breakfast was not a memorable experience, no one around for guidance as to what to do.
Food only fair, toasters had to be used twice to get any color on the bread,hot food inedible, thought the "scrambled" eggs tasted as if were dried and reconstituted, not very warm.
Would not repeat the experience.

A very pleasant experience all round with staff being very helpful and adhering to our requests.
We also took advantage of the discounts which were offered by the hotel including; free gym/swim admission and 10-25% off local restaurants.

Booked two rooms in June thinking I would get two doubles, only to be told on arrival at hotel in November that they had given me one double and one twin , did ask if they could change , told no by receptionist as full , ok I take that on board but make eye contact with me when talking to me and would have been nice to have say sorry , maybe offer a double quilt or something . Did even get hope you enjoy your stay or anything. Not a good start to my sons graduation , so thanks for that Holiday Inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by circumspect Cheltenham Choice
We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cheltenham, because of location to the town centre, a pleasant atmosphere, really helpful staff and excellent food. The only downside was the noise from the outside of the hotel from passers by, which was not blocked out by the windows in our room, mostly late night revellers. Would recommend asking for a room at the rear of the hotel, away from the main street.
Overall though, this was a great hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PaulBristol Rush to check me out ruined my stay
The stay was fine. I was aiming to check out at 12 as although I had checked the booking confirmation and the information the hotel had given me - it didn't stipulate this as far as I could see. At 11.30 I had a phone call telling me I should have checked out but I could stay longer for an additional fee. I said I assumed the checkout was 12 and was told I was wrong. Helpful! I said I would only be half an hour and then the guy said he would have to check - and put the call on hold. As I was interrupted from the shower, i put the phone down and carried on to leave. The tone particularly when information is not clear is not great and spoilt my stay. How many people would be booking in at 11.30 on a Sunday anyway ??

Very comfortable base. Good central location, convenient NCP car park next door for which you get 25% discount. Restaurants opposite in the Brewery great - and flat walk into town centre about 15-20 minutes. Staff helpful and courteous. Breakfast times were busy - but guests able to site in the adjoining bar area - so not a problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tim9057 A stay in Cheltenham.
Having arrived in Cheltenham we found the hotel easy to find and were welcomed by friendly staff who gave us help and information which was useful. The cleanliness of the hotel was of a high standard and the room was extremely clean and comfortable. Negotiated reductions at local restaurant's was handy and very worth while, also the 25% reduction in car parking fees at the very close by NCP car parks was essential as the NCP charges are relatively high. All in all a nice stay and would book there and recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DOC51 Cheltenham Festival
This is a great place to stay for the festival as it is an easy walk from the main venues and even closer to some good restaurants.
I would have liked an easy chair in the room along with the desk chair. After all the room is meant for two.
Breakfast would be great if there was bacon. Bacon, bacon, bacon...can you hear me?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IwanM Convenience and comfort
I have no complaints at all. From the moment I was able to find a Street Parking slot on a Saturday afternoon to our departure down High street on Sunday morning, we were impressed and satisfied. We had a room for 3 adults- something that we are quite used to- and we were all suitably satisfied. Breakfast was good- very good. Plentiful and varied, though not as full an ingredient counter as luxury class, but it was thoroughly satisfying.
A very minor point - for observation rather than critical, was the uncertainty we had regarding the Free wifi. It was marked in the confirmation form and the initial Home page, and indeed the whole hotel as being free, but a form - probably an old copy- was handed to me with what I considered exhorbitant wifi charges printed on it. I was reassured by reception that this payment was no longer expected, and that the free wifi was the order of the day.
It could have frightened some people away, and I am glad that Holiday Inn have adopted the free policy. Just take the other details off the wifi specification sheet!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GAMMO My Cheltenham address
Since my 13 year old has started school here , I have lived here twice already.
The 2-single-bed room is more spacious than the bed and sofa-bed combination...I suggest one opts for the former.
The housekeeping is of good quality and the rooms are good value at the price, the only shortcomings being lack of clothes storage/hanging space and absence of a room-safe deposit box.
Breakfast is nothing to write home about....but welcome at the inclusive-price.
The staff are all well-mannered and helpful...no complaints on that front!
I suggest anyone going to Cheltenham for a short stay would find this place pretty good value for money.

Great for a stay in Cheltenham, opposite Brewery with a wide range of restaurants many with a discount from the hotel. Hotel was very clean throughout, room was nicely decorated and spacious.
Only slight issues were:-
Lack of hot choice at breakfast (no bacon, only beans, sausage and scrambled egg).
No recognition of IHG Platinum Elite Membership:- greeted by name, Welcome drink or bonus points.
But overall very satisfied.
