Great nights sleep, foggy in morning and didn't clear till after 3 in the afternoon. Easy day 15 miles and 3000 ft of ascent. Saw two really good forts. Walked through a very scenic park apparently owned by the vacuum guy(Dyson). B&B closed on arrival so sat in pub writing ...

B&B was ok in the end, smelt damp when I arrive. Took longer route along canal. Lots of ups and downs today and lots of long barrows including hetty peglers tump which you needed a torch for because you went in so far. Climbed tyndale beacon which got narrower and narrower as you got higher, not much space at the top. Weather good again, a bit cooler today ...

Shakespeare's Home

... like spokes on a wheel, all radiating from a huge round about. As long as you could find your way back to that round about, you would never be lost. We kept walking past numerous clothing stores, book stores and of course tea shops. We finally got to Shakespeare's birthday place, a house which has been a little restored but for the most part left the same as it was. If you weren't looking for it, you probably wouldn't have noticed that it was a point of interest. It ...

... those up when we get home. Julia's reading Michael Morpurgo's The War Horse. I'm really enjoying it, it's pretty deep story written from the perspective of a horse in World War 1 called Joey. Tragic tale of lost lives. The part tonight was about two soldiers on opposing sides, a German and a Welshman coming together to get Joey out of the barbed wire on the plains. The Welshman was a rugby player from none other than my family's hometown of Maesteg. Julia thought that was pretty ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Thistle Cheltenham Hotel

    Absolutely Diabolical

    from

    We stayed at this hotel back in August as we got a great deal on Late Rooms (or so I thought). Although

    Not as bad as fearec after reviews!

    from

    Having booked a weekend and then reading the reviews we were a bit apprehensive about our forthcoming stay, however, for 50 a night we were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were large, well furnished and quiet. The only aspect we were disappointed with was breakfast - not best quality in world, but as we only paid 50 we weren't that bothered. 5 taxi into Cheltenham, made it in a good location. Would go again if got rooms at that price

    Good location - easy to find

    from

    After reading the reviews below I was pleasantly surprised, we booked three rooms all were very clean and spacious. I admit that the hotel does not look very appealing from the outside but located centrally for Cheltenham (we left our car in the hotel car park and caught the bus right outside, 10 mins were in the centre) We ate dinner in the hotel the first night and could not fault it at all (if you order the sticky toffee pudding it is enough for two!!!) Breakfast was great and plenty of choice. For the money it was OK, this was certainly not the worst hotel we have stayed in.

    The most awful experience I have ever had to endure

    from

    What a difference to customer service there is prior to taking you booking and then on arrival.

    Dreadful, simply dreadful

    from

    I booked this hotel on the day I was due to arrive, on arrival my booking could not be located. However they did book me in and charged my credit card again. My credit card was also had charged against £50.00 in case I used room service...never before has this happened to me, it gives a real clue as to this hotels professionalism, there isn't any!

    Good value for money

    from

    After all the negative comments written about this hotel we weren't expecting much especially as we managed to get a great last minute deal. The rooms were clean and bright, the staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast during the week was excellent with loads of choice and all nicely cooked. It was in a handy location for us as we did not want to go through cheltenham town every time we went out and had easy access to all the main roads. The hotel itself was really quiet and i wasnt once disturbed during the night and the pool/leisure centre was also nice (although the changing rooms could have done with up-dating).

    Business hotel - miles from centre, next to GCHQ!

    from

    Exterior is fairly dated so puts you off before you get in. However, once inside it was nicely decorated. Room was ok - typical business hotel fare.

    Worst thing for me was fact that it was a 10 min drive to the centre of Cheltenham. Not ideal for those wishing to site see in the City.

    Not bad at all

    from

    I stayed there as part of a group . The room was large and very clean.

    Nice room shame about rest of hotel

    from

    stayed the night here for a works party. Large room very nice overlooking tennis court. Staff let the hotel down very rude no manners. Breakfast buffet was terrible limited choice and cold. Receptionist didn't bother asking if stay was ok when checking out otherwise would have told her no. Wouldn't stay here again.

    Ok, but noisy June 2004

    from

    The hotel is air conditioned, which is a big plus.

    The rooms are larger than average in the UK.

    Stayed June 16-17, 2004.

    Unusually loud fire door started slamming early and ended late.

    Construction on the floor above also woke us up.

    My complaint to managment was ignored.
