Thistle Cheltenham Hotel

The four-star Thistle Cheltenham Hotel is a contemporary hotel situated in its
own landscaped gardens. Located within the peace and beauty of the Cotswolds
we are still only a few miles from the famous Cheltenham Racecourse and 10
minutes from the historic Cheltenham Town Centre.  This is said to be the most
complete regency town in the whole of England. A perfect base to enjoy the town’s
many festivals.

Many guests at Thistle Cheltenham Hotel are in town for a festival. Cheltenham has no fewer than five festivals, devoted to Literature, Music, Science, Jazz and, perhaps most famously, National Hunt racing.

It is one of the few hotels in Cheltenham situated near the town’s original attraction, the ‘waters’, with Princess (later Queen) Victoria, the Duke of Wellington, Jane Austen and Lord Byron among the Spa’s devotees. Whilst they would probably still recognise many of the town’s beautiful Regency streets and gardens, the Thistle Cheltenham has comforts and conveniences they could never have even imagined.

We have 122 bedrooms, including Suites, and 15 meeting rooms, the largest seating 400 people theatre-style. On-site parking is available at a small additional charge. And in Cheltenham’s finest tradition, our Otium Health & Leisure Club has everything you need to refresh mind and body – the only water involved being our heated indoor swimming pool.
