More Room Types

Ellenborough Park "makes a striking first impression", according to The Daily Telegraph, and The AA Hotel 2016 praises this "impressive", "beautifully restored" hotel.

The 5-star property dates back to the 16th century and is set within the original Cheltenham Racecourse estate. Sudeley Castle & Gardens in the Cotswolds is around 10 minutes' drive away.

The Beaufort Dining Room (open Tuesday-Saturday) has three AA Rosettes and serves modern British dishes. Executive head chef David Kelman competed in the ninth series of "The Great British Menu" and won the Welsh heat. You can also dine in The Brasserie, which serves classic British fare, or take afternoon tea in the "sigh-inducingly grand" (The AA) Great Hall.

Rooms were designed by Nina Campbell and are located in four separate buildings -- the Main House, The Mews, Ellenborough Gate and Woodland Court -- and suites are named after famous racehorses. Classic Rooms are larger than Traditional Rooms and some have roll-top baths and walk-in showers. Views include the kitchen garden, the courtyard and the racecourse.

The Indian-themed spa has seven treatment rooms plus a couples' room, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, a relaxation room and an outdoor heated pool.

From the press:

  • "The service is warm, and the dining is fabulous, thanks to formidable chef David Kelman" -- The Daily Telegraph

  • "Set on the original Cheltenham Racecourse estate, this impressive hotel dates in part from the 16th century & has been beautifully restored" -- The AA Hotel Guide 2016
