Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham Spa, England

Expand your horizons with a scenic trip to the English countryside, at the historic Ellenborough Park. Located in the village of Southam, just north of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, the hotel was once the original Cheltenham Racecourse estate, now beautifully restored with well-preserved splendor. Just over 60 spacious bedrooms and suites house guests with regal style and grace, thoughtfully designed and spread throughout four buildings. If classic British panache is your muse, opt for the Traditional or Classic Rooms, each equipped with modern conveniences like iPod docks, flat-panel televisions, heated bathroom flooring, and ergonomic beds. The Luxury and Tower Rooms offer an elevated level of elegance, with views over the property's fruitful gardens and scenic parklands. Additionally, all guests have access to the exceptional facilities of The Spa at Ellenborough Park, including steam rooms, a spa pool, and sauna. Opt for a full-fledged experience and book a facial treatment, massage, spa ritual, or body treatment, all designed to pamper and provide the ultimate in unwinding.

Take in the grandeur and magnificent history at Ellenborough Park by exploring the property itself, absorbing the heritage of your lovely surroundings. Curl up with a good book and a cozy chair in The Great Hall, a spectacular space that showcases some of the estate's finest design and furnishings. The Gardens are a perfect spot to stroll before dinner, noting the carefully plotted flora, including a Knot garden echoing the building's Elizabethan roots. In the warmer months, stretch out in a sun chaise by the heated outdoor pool, and enjoy full use of the fitness center year-round. Shooting, golf and polo are additional recreational options, as Ellenborough Park partners with local land owners and facilities, including the Cotswold Hills Golf Course. The famous Cheltenham Racecourse is adjacent to the hotel, which hosts eight exciting races each year. A pair of on-site restaurants provides a choice in dining style. The Beaufort Dining Room is a gourmet experience with classic British appeal, and features a well curated menu and selection of fine wines. For a more casual meal, The Brasserie provides everything from a simple sandwich, to a laid back lunch or dinner. Perfectly paced pleasure is an art form here, so allow Ellenborough Park to make your trip to English countryside one that reflects the spirit of this fine destination.

Came to Ellenborough Park Hotel for afternoon tea for my sisters birthday, there were 8 of us and we had the private balcony. The afternoon tea was presented lovely, however we had to request more sandwiches. Jake was very patient with us and attentive with our requirements. Big thank you Jake! Will definitely be back, hopefully next time to stay a night.

A friend and I visited for dinner after a day at Cheltenham races, there was a warm welcome awaiting from the door staff and this attitude from the staff continued throughout the evening. The convivial atmosphere in the bar was matched by the imaginative and extensive drinks list, you are in the right place if you enjoy gin and the barman gave good advice to help choose from the wide selection. After drinks we went through for dinner and I had a cured salmon starter topped with an oyster which was beautifully presented and sensational to eat, my friend had the crab which he raved about also.The deputy restaurant manager took the time to explain certain items on the menu and did so with enthusiasm and an excellent knowledge which ensured our food and wine choices made for the perfect meal throughout.

We ended a mini tour of the Cotswolds at Ellenborough Park and disappointingly the hotel proved to be our least favourite of the five we stayed in. Perhaps the fact we were in one of the mews rooms rather than the main hotel contributed to this - a comfortable room with nice bathroom but with a feeling of a motel room rather than a five star hotel room. We ate in our room but the sandwich my partner ordered was pretty poor - dry bread and none of the promised chips (in fact the menu described the sandwich as being hot, which it wasn't) - a new Argentinian chef was blamed for the mix-up....... Breakfast was good and Jonathan friendly and professional. Had we been in the main building, I may have added an extra star.

We spent the weekend at Ellenborough for a family celebration and had a fantastic stay; both my daughter and I loved it. Our room was great with comfortable beds and plenty of space; my daughter loved the bathroom and its hot floor along with the selection of lotions and potions. The service we received in the bar and restaurants over the weekend was great, even when we kept the bar open to early the next morning. Breakfast was hearty and the English breakfast set me up well for our 2 days of activities; the staff warned it may take time to come as they were very busy but then proceeded to deliver it within 5 to 10 minutes. We took advantage of the outdoor swimming pool a number of times but I would recommend getting in when they first take the covers off as it was lovely and warm then - later on the water had cooled down a bit. We also wandered around the hotel with my daughter having a go on the large swing and having a crack at croquet on the lawn as well. It is a great place to have a relaxing weekend enjoying the local area and the food and drink on offer in the hotel. We will be going back as we thoroughly loved our stay!

We booked to stay at the Ellenborough Park for a visit to the Cheltenham Literature Festival and had to take the one remaining room as the hotel was full. This was designated a disabled room and was near the outdoor swimming pool. Why this was set aside for the handicapped is a puzzle as we had to negotiate 7 sets of steps to get there and it was on the first floor. Having stayed at the Ellenborough before I felt this was inferior. There were 2 people but only one easy chair. In the bathroom, the shower which was set out as a wet room, flooded the rest of the floor. There were 2 weddings on the weekend we were there and we felt these had priority. The low point of the visit was dinner on the second night. At 7. 20 pm I ordered halibut; 40 minutes later the waiter informed us that the last piece of halibut had been used and offered salmon instead which I did not want. The price was adjusted but how a highly reputable hotel could wait 40 to make this discovery is beyond me. Breakfasts were ok though we enjoyed Cheltenham the hotel was a disappointment this time.
