Guests Gratitude
June 2021

Guest house was excellent. Warm welcome, room was lovely and very clean. Good breakfast.

Very comfortable , stylish twin room which was well thought out. The shower room felt very luxurious. The staff were friendly, efficient and professional.

Beautiful B&B. The owners have done a fantastic job on renovating the building. We slept in the most comfortable bed. Had it not been for a superb breakfast, I would still be in that bed. Our son lives just round the corner, so we will definitely book this B&B for future visits to Cheltenham.

Lovely little B&B close to the centre of Cheltenham and ideally located for exploring the Cotswolds. Sam and team were very friendly and helpful with providing suggestions of things to do. Cooked breakfast was great and they were able to accommodate for allergies. Would recommend this hotel. Reasonable charges for parking provided close to the hotel. Thanks for a wonderful stay, it was thoroughly enjoyable!
Everything was amazing, the rooms were quiet. We went on the night of the England game and we expected to hear a lot of noise due to the win we had. But, it was very quiet noise we heard, very minimal compared to other places we have stayed! Was a perfect night, only trouble was the room got too warm and the fear of opening the window to chants and noisy people put us off! Nothing to do with the hotel though, it was an amazing stay, best I’ve had in a while!
All staff very welcoming and friendly. Nothing any trouble. Room excellent, very comfortable and everywhere very clean. Breakfast exceptional. Decor of building amazing.
Characterful property, superb facilities and very welcoming. Great breakfasts too. Thank you.

Quality furnishings Beautiful comfortable bed! Fabulous full English Breajfast! Staff wonderful always helpful with a smile! Beautiful building with super courtyard out back to have glass of wine in the evening Staff fantastic nothing too much trouble!

Great feeling to the guesthouse. Room was traditional and clean. Same for the dining room. Super central to the town. The real kicker was the staff. Made to feel relaxed immediately. Loved the place.

Charming guesthouse. Friendly, helpful staff. Good breakfast selection.

We can’t fault this place. Great location, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, lovely breakfast and above all very welcoming and accommodating hosts. The mattress was a bit too soft for my back but that’s not necessarily a criticism of the guesthouse as it’s impossible to please everyone on this matter.
The Portland Guesthouse was such a fab place to stay for one night. We had a room at the top of the house with sash windows which look out over the back of the property. This meant that the room was very quiet during the night. The room was clean and comfortable and Corrine was very friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Parking was in a street nearby and was easy to find the correct zone to park in. The guesthouse is very close to the town centre, just a five minute walk. We had a lovely time and would stay again.
Great location, very easy to access the centre and everything within walking distance. Lovely friendly staff, felt very looked after and nothing was a bother. Breakfast was great, fresh and very well cooked! Property looked exactly like the pictures.
Very welcoming host and adaptable to special requests if needed very clean very Comfy bed character property Good quality ingredients in the breakfast check out bit later at 11am Very impressed will certainly stay again have stayed in many b&b s This is extra special for sure
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay ar the Portland Guesthouse, everything was perfect from the room which was so comfortable and spotlessly clean to the cooked breakfast, which was delicious and perfectly cooked, and the fresh orange juice was very welcome,. Thank-you to our host Sam who was excellent and so very helpful in every way. I highly recommend this guesthouse, its 5 mins walk into the centre of Cheltenham and the Promenade walk. Excellent value, 5 stars from me.
This is the best guest house I have ever stayed in. Clean. Decent sized room (twin room). Good location. Friendly, helpful staff. Very good breakfast. Great price. Would highly recommend.
Stayed over for night on the way to Torquay what a surprise. Lovely warm welcome great comfy room brilliant breakfast.

Room was lovely. Great touch with brownies and fresh milk upon check in. Lovely host and great distance to the city centre and the park (less than 5 mins away to both!)

Really friendly welcome, lovely room and the best night’s sleep. We didn’t realise how many guests there were until the morning as it was so quiet. Also in a great location.

Excellent room. Very spacious.

Really enjoyed my stay with my daughter. We was in room 1 in a twin room, decor was lovely and modern and rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was lovely and we had little brownies, fresh water and milk in our room. Very friendly hosts !

Corrina welcomed us in and we had such a lovely stay. The bed was super comfy and it was only a short walk into the town centre. We will definitely be returning!




Very central, quiet and very nice welcome.

Good location and nice staff:). I booked that for my boyfriend’s bday as it is in such a good location and easy to walk to the centre and around Cheltenham:). The room was really nice, love the style and was very clean;).

Sam was the excellent host nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night break and will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

Fantastic little find in Cheltenham. The staff were friendly, room was great, delicious breakfast and great location. We couldn’t fault it! We will definitely be staying again


The property was close to town. Inside it was very beautiful. We had a lovely warm welcome. The room was clean, lovely decor and a very comfy bed. All in all a great nights stay. Would stay again.


Everything exceeded our expectations. The location was fantastic, the room was spotless, cosy, beds comfortable. Due to the current pandemic there was only one member of staff (you wouldn’t have guessed it) because he had everything running smoothly and nothing was too much for him at all. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Extremely helpful and the breakfast was perfect. Would definitely return again! 😊😊
