Queens Hotel Cheltenham - MGallery by Sofitel
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This Regency property in Cheltenham -- often called the "gateway to the Cotswolds" -- has a great location on the corner of the tree-lined Promenade and Imperial Square and Gardens
- One of the first purpose-built hotels of Europe, opened in 1838, it has welcomed guests including the late writer Arthur Conan Doyle and the late composer Edward Elgar
- This Neoclassical building is Grade II-listed and retains original features such as a towering Georgian staircase and hand-painted wallpaper designed by Augustus Pugin
- A "relaxing venue with discreetly slick service", it has "stylish" bedrooms and food that "celebrates much of the best of the Cotswolds" (The Daily Telegraph)
The imposing façade of Queens Hotel Cheltenham - MGallery by Sofitel presides elegantly over Imperial Square and Gardens, and the Promenade, a beautifully preserved Regency-era thoroughfare lined by elm and horse-chestnut trees. Since opening in July 1838, the hotel has welcomed illustrious guests including Charles Napier, Arthur Conan Doyle and Edward Elgar.
Behind its Corinthian columns, large windows and carved cornices a sense of space prevails. Its impressive lobby has a striking tiled floor, sumptuous armchairs and hand-painted wallpaper designed by Augustus Pugin -- the same design can be found in the Houses of Parliament. Other original features at this Grade II-listed property include a towering staircase and a curved wooden bar brought back from India in 1850.
The Napier Restaurant and Orangery uses fresh ingredients from local Cotswolds farms and artisan producers. In fine weather, meals can be taken in the garden. The Gold Cup Bar offers over 40 varieties of gin in an ornate but intimate setting, including one that was created by a local distillery to commemorate the hotel's 180th anniversary.
Bedrooms are spread over three floors and offer climate control, crisp Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy bathrobes and walk-in showers in the bathrooms.
