No. 131 The Promenade, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
City vibes and Cotswold chic marry at this sophisticated boutique hotel in the heart of Cheltenham. Interiors are stylish with quirky little touches here and there (think framed photos on ceilings), with dim lighting and hidden nooks and crannies perfect to hide away in for an intimate tête à tête. The happening, award-winning Gin & Juice is one of the city's most popular nightlife venues, with locals sipping gin-based drinks in a pumping atmosphere until late. By day, locals flock here to do a little people watching from the wrap-around terrace that offers al fresco dining in the summer months (there are marquees and heaters in winter). Rooms are handsomely decorated and ooze contemporary-cool vibes, with modern works of art, bespoke furnishings, and walls in moody blues and greys creating a cocoon-like ambience.
Staying at this hotel you're right in the centre of town, steps away from Cheltenham's major attractions. The Racecourse is a pleasant half-hour walk north.
Overlooking the Imperial Gardens, there are plenty of green spaces to explore. A 25-minute walk will take you to Pitville Park and the Pump Rooms.
By car: around an hour's drive from Bristol and 2 hours 30 minutes from London and Manchester. Parking costs £10 per day.
By train: direct trains to Cheltenham Spa run from Bristol (40 minutes) Birmingham (40 minutes) and London (2 hours). The hotel is a 4-minute drive away. thetrainline.com

The Superior Suite has a wrought-iron staircase leading down to a vast bathroom with free standing bathtub and double shower. We loved the (discreet looking) wall hooks all around - particularly useful to hang all manner of items, from towels to coats and bags.
