With almost quarter of a million horse racing fans descending on Cheltenham Racecourse for the Festival and Gold Cup 2013, accommodation is at a premium in Cheltenham and the surrounding towns and villages.
So, whether you will be flocking to Cheltenham for just the Gold Cup, a St Patrick’s Day knees-up, or for the full four-day Festival, stay at one of Gloucestershire’s top hotels and you’ll be betting on getting a good night’s sleep in the county.
SoGlos’s selection of Cheltenham budget hotels, Cheltenham mid-range hotels and Cheltenham luxury hotels are sure to prove full to capacity during Race Week, thanks to their proximity to Prestbury Park, with booking as far in advance as possible coming recommended.
Nearby Gloucester budget hotels and Gloucester mid-range hotels will be providing a popular alternative, with great rates and good access routes adding to the attractiveness of the city’s accommodation.
While Cotswolds budget hotels, Cotswolds mid-range hotels and Cotswolds luxury hotels will also be pulling in plenty of racegoers too, particularly those keen on making their trip to Cheltenham Racecourse just part of their time spent relaxing in Gloucestershire.
Venue: The Wharf House
The lowdown: This newly refurbished waterside restaurant and accommodation boasts a range of luxury guest rooms away from the hustle and bustle of all the racing action – but easily accessible from Cheltenham, situated in Over on the edge of Gloucester. The seven AA four gold star rooms range from a standard king to the Ballard Suite and all feature stunning views of either the River Severn or the restored Canal Basin, and include a full English or continental breakfast. Guests can expect all the usual facilities reserved for luxury hotels, such as a fully stocked mini bar, wide-screen television, walk-in WiFi, private en suite, a lockable safe and fresh, fluffy linen and bath towels – with some even including the added bonus of a whirlpool bath too.
SoGlos loves: To see you through the festival celebrations, be sure to dine in The Wharf House’s award-winning restaurant, which serves up a relaxed ambience alongside fine British and European cuisine with a contemporary twist – and is undoubtedly one of the city’s finest places to eat out.
How much?: Room rates start from £318 for two nights, based on two people sharing.
