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.

Visited the Beaufort dining room for dinner as a non-resident with a friend and the whole experience was excellent from start to finish! From pre-dinner drinks to dessert, the service was impeccable. We had an excellent recommendation from the sommelier for a lovely bottle of red and the food was exquisite! Couldn't fault anything even if I tried! Definitely worth a visit!

I would love to be able to write a wonderful review about this place . but unfortunately they were way too busy to even take my booking! I telephoned to book a treat of afternoon tea for my mum as she hasn't been too well, I was asked to ring a different number as they were unable to take the booking on the main number reception. I willingly did as asked, unfortunately nobody was available to take my call , however they took my telephone number and I was advised they would call me back. Two hours later I was still awaiting a call, as it was getting late I called back, to be told they will call me back immediately , here I am 1 hour later still awaiting a call. I called again this time to speak with the Manager to express my disgust with the service I had received, you guest it not available!!!! My mum was looking forward to her afternoon tea but with this sort of service when trying to book I hate to think how BAD the service is when you actually get to make a booking.

Private b'day party, slow service, cold food, Mise en place lacking, team leader only seemed interested in watching a waitress serve 26 meals alone. Had to search for staff to take drinks order on terrace. For a hotel portraying to be 'Englands leading country house hotel', there is room for improvement.

This is a magnificent old building set on beautiful grounds. We found most of the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly, which really helped to make our stay memorable. The food at breakfast and in the brasserie was very good, as was the service. We did not eat at the Beaufort Room. I have to echo what others have said. When you are advertised as 5 stars, expectations are high, and so is the level of critique. Two areas that fell short; 1) no senior customer service representative available at all times to make decisions when issues arise. We waited for 15 minutes for our car keys at the front desk while two separate billing issues were sorted out. This is embarrassing for the hotel and poor advertising to the other guests who witness this activity; 2) Attention to detail and specifically cleanliness. I assume that the hotel is at that stage where a general refresh is probably needed, Walls and carpets were not clean. This is an easy fix and none of this really took away from our experience, it's just something for management to address to keep the hotel at the expected/advertised level. I would recommend this hotel with expectations somewhat tempered.

We stayed in a room near the pool. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was equally huge. Great shower, too. Don't be put off by the fact that the pool is outdoors. It is kept wonderfully warm and I swam in the rain one morning, which was a new experience. The breakfasts are great. Everything is freshly cooked and the staff are attentive but not in the least stuffy. The hotel and grounds are very picturesque and every area is very well cared for. Overall, it's one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in and we will certainly go back again.
