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.

We found our stay very convenient and comfortable. One thing we really appreciated was the M&S and Waitrose food provided for breakfast. A business can provide the bare minimum and 'get away with it' but this is certainly not the case here! perfect location too, just a stones through from town.
The other point to mention is parking. Although no onsite parking is available, the road that the apartments are on is a dead end road and right at the end is an open air car park perfectly located for your stay. It was amongst the cheapest too, so ideal and you can stay in the same spot for up to 5 days! Best to pay for it on your phone or app when you get there, rather than putting money in the machine. Its more convenient.
The only downside is the street noise which is unavoidable in the town centre. We are guessing that because its a listed building that its not possible to triple glaze the windows. Other than this, its a perfect place!

Amazing!

Very expensive treat for a friend and myself £170 ..rooms were lovely and various free food and easy card access handy. Aircon failed leaving room unbearably hot, pillows were very very cheap and uncomfortable and windy night meant Pigeon netting flapped around all night making sleep nearly impossible. Would have forgiven management had they responded quickly and politely... but got the classic 'sorry you feel that way' line and a 20% discount on my next stay. That's ok dont worry!! I eont be staying again. Appaling customer service, no real apology .. far better hotels available for less in Cheltenham..save yourself £70 for a nice meal and look at all the other £100 hotels available...and avoid this place like the plague. Would have been very easy to apologise and fix... but they would rather take the money and call me a liar. What a shame.
