Overview

The Review

Behind a heritage-listed Italian facade, the Strozzi Palace occupies a dark stone building near a good pub and Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum — a promising hint at the mix of entertainment on offer in this Gloucestershire city. I used my private code (sent when I made my reservation) for entry into both the small, stylish foyer and my suite, where the signature Italian motif is expressed in fabrics, furniture and modern fittings: black, steel-gray and white with metal and leather details.

With just six suites, the Strozzi Palace is boutique in size and also in concept, with an emphasis on home comforts. My Napoli Suite had a working kitchen, a separate living area and a small balcony, and although it was more stylish than spacious, there was ample room to prepare light meals and work on a computer, as well as stretch out to watch the wide-screen TV. The big coffee table design books added a homey touch.{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/1802/prop-16860-1317075304-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The aesthetic is modern, with furnishings in glass and metal and a cool monochrome palette.”}

With no public areas or restaurant, the Strozzi is best for independent travelers who like to get out and explore their surroundings. From the hotel it’s an easy stroll to the center of Cheltenham, a flat, eminently walkable city. Like Bath, Cheltenham Spa was once a gathering place for ladies and gentlemen of society, and the theaters, restaurants, parks and promenade still have the gracious air of places designed for pure enjoyment. Large cream-colored stone buildings, curved streets and manicured parks give the town a distinguished and elegant air.

The famous health-giving waters, which have been used for 250 years, are still available for tasting at the Pumphouse, which is a short drive or a good walk out of town. En route you’ll pass many examples of Regency houses and public buildings, and you should stop at one of the dozens of cozy teahouses.

Thinnest walls I have ever encountered
jonny1471

The tuscany suite was nice but small, the walls are incredibly thin, I could hear our neighbor's tv and conversation but could also tell they weren't being loud just very thin walls, they plugged something in and it sounded like it was next to the bed. I banged on the wall and they stopped talking so they could hear me but the noise continued. Again, not noisy neighbor's but stupidly thin walls.

Nice room, cheaply built but made to look nice.

An excellent place to stay

My husband and I stayed overnight in The Palermo Apartment. Check in was completely straight forward,receiving a door code by text message before we arrived.

The apartments are located right in the city centre which is ideal for walking to various locations.
Car parking is an added extra cost but we used The Brewery car park, 6 minutes walk away and cost £18.00 for 24 hours.

The apartment was well appointed with comfortable furnishings and a large modern wet room.
It was spotlessly clean and a range of snacks, fresh fruit and breakfast sundries were provided.The small kitchen area was well equipped and had everything we needed.

It fitted our needs perfectly.

The only criticism was that the bed was really uncomfortable and we did not have a great night’s sleep.

The whole concept is a really good one and so much better than staying in a hotel.
We would definitely recommend a stay here.

I have stayed 3 times at Strozzi palace in cheltenham and each time it’s been . So lovely ???? relaxing and exceptionally clean and tidy . Lovey staff and fantastic location. ( The lady cleaning rooms said a Cheerful hello ???????? as we left ) Even had a message to say I’d left my iPhone charger (which I haven’t yet collected) how very kind and thoughtful. It’s the little things that make the difference . As well as the fantastic location and feel of the suites ❤️
