Tripadvisor: October 2015 Excellent Stay  My family and I stayed at the Hilden Lodge to attend the University open day the next day. The room was lovely, and both the room and bathroom were immaculately clean. Plenty of Hot water and towels. The breakfast was superb, excellent choice of cereal and fruit, yogurts etc. Wonderful quality English Breakfast with plenty of hot toast and Tea/Coffee. Nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely stay here again.

Tripadvisor: August 2015 Outstanding in every way This was a perfect place for me to stay overnight while attending a family occasion in Cheltenham. Nobody could have done more to make me feel welcome. The bedroom was spotlessly clean and although snug had tea/coffee making facilities, a TV screen and plenty of accessible sockets for recharging electronic devises. Located on the A40 it was an easy drive without having to negotiate the unfamiliar streets of Cheltenham. It was also only a short walk to the town centre (about 15 mins). I am not really a breakfast person but the breakfast served in the dining room was exceptionally inviting with a beautifully displayed array of every conceivable cereal, fruit, yogurt, milk as well as a full menu of cooked food. If ever I need to stay in Cheltenham again I would always return to this place while it was being run by Sally and Dave.

Tripadvisor: March 2015   Excellent base for the Cotswolds,Racing at Cheltenham,etc Very comfortable,lovely hospitality from the hosts Sally and Dave,central position,well furnished.Good recommendations on other attractions and local restaurants.We were very satisfied and would make a point of staying here again if we were ever back in the area.

Tripadvisor: January 2015   5* customer service. Clean, neat, up to date decor. My friend had booked the family room at the Hilton lodge to visit me in cheltenham with her daughter (10 months) The room was nice and large with pretty and up to date decor with a bath in bathroom. Everything was clean and neat and nicely presented. 
I join my friend for dinner in the evening and also returned in the morning for breakfast with my son (22 months) As the hotel was out of season times there was a limited menu, but the offer of fancy fish and chips was gladly accepted. We sat in a clean and tidy up to date dining room which joined onto a small bar which was up to date and cosy. The customer service at dinner was fabulous and the dinner was presented and cooked very nicely.I returned in the morning to have breakfast and the lady owner literally couldn’t have done anything more for us. Nothing was too much trouble and she absolutely went the extra mile for us with her customer service. We had two children in the restaurant. My son was exploring the whole place which was warmly accepted and she spoke to him and addressed him by his name. She offered extras from the kitchen to be cooked at no extra charge for my son. (Scrambled egg and sausage) as I had to pay for my breakfast due to not being a guest – the price of the breakfast was incredibly reasonable!!!!!! There was so much on offer and the choices where of a high quality range. My son very much enjoyed the Nutella……. I was trying to keep my son on a tight leash in the resturant but the lady was very relaxed and allowed me to feel comfortable with him exploring which was absolutely lovely. 

Tripadvisor: November  2014  Excellent hotel Sally and David were the perfect hosts, We had an evening meal and were not disappointed, the fish and chips was the best I have tasted. The room was spotless, comfortable and warm, the breakfast was first class. Lovely stay would highly recommend this hotel.

Tripadvisor: June 2014  We stayed at hilden lodge on the 29th of May, we were attending the Cheltenham sales. The rooms were extremely comfortable, all our party passed on our compliments to David on our excellent evening meal and morning breakfast. We would highly recommend the hilden lodge for any future stay,and we appreciated the excellent service provided by David and Sally.

Tripadvisor: May 2014 “Perfect!”My wife and I had a delightful stay at Hilden Lodge over what was a very busy weekend due to the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. It is perfectly located for easy access and for getting into town but is in a very peaceful location. The hotel is tastefully decorated with good attention to detail which is testament to the efforts of the owners who told me that they have only been there for one month. Each room is individually named and ours was very comfortable; a king size bed, ensuite with bath and shower, beverages and flatscreen tv.
There is a restaurant for evening meals and small bar which we didn’t use on the night of our stay but looked nice. We had our breakfast in the restaurant the following morning, which was wonderful. There is a good selection of cereal, fruit and yoghurt, etc whilst your order is taken for a variety of cooked breakfasts, which are freshly cooked to order.
I cannot fault any aspect of our stay and would certainly stay there again when next in Cheltenham. It is worth noting that you can get a better rate if you book directly with the hotel. Fully recommended.

Tripadvisor: May 2014 “Lovely warm welcome, beautiful rooms and amazing breakfast”We escaped the first night in our new home and left the boxes unpacked in favour of some R & R. We were not disappointed. Sally made us feel so welcome and our room did not disappoint. As we were very new to Cheltenham she gave us valuable information on local amenities which was very helpful. Breakfast next morning was delicious, plenty of choice and a beautifully cooked English breakfast. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family when they come to visit.

Tripadvisor: April 2014 “Great Stay”Stayed here whilst on business. The evening meal was excellent and great vfm. Owners extremely helpful and accommodating. Room was very comfortable. Convenient for the Cotswold villages with the bonus of good cycling.

Tripadvisor: April 2014 “Brilliant”Stayed at the Hilden Lodge for a wedding at the Frogmill Inn in Andoversford. The owners were happy for us to have an early check in, there was parking on site and the room was clean and modern, with a very good en suite.There was a wide choice of breakfasts on the Sunday morning, I had the full english and my girlfriend had the Eggs Benedict Florentine which were both very good indeed. There were also the other usual options of cereals, yoghurts, juices teas and coffees available.

Tripadvisor: April 2014 “Fantastic Owners”You will get a very very warm welcome at The Hilden Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were given 1st class service. Phoning taxis, helping us get directions, friendly service at the cosy bar…They go way beyond the norm. The place is spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and excellent value for money. The breakfast was truly outstanding. Will certainly be returning.

Tripadvisor: April 2014 “Fabulous Stay Had a lovely stay, the hosts were warm and friendly and the food was excellent. Beautifully clean and decor was of a high standard. We would not stay elsewhere in the Cheltenham area.I would recommend this place to anyone I knew was staying in the vicinity.

 Tripadvisor: 7 October 2013 “Super b and b We were in Cheltenham for a birthday party and chose Hilden Lodge because it was close to our friend house in Charlton Kings. It was a spotlessly clean,comfortable and welcoming b and b. Our bed was lovely and we slept really well. The good quality breakfast was very well cooked and beautifully presented.

Tripadvisor: 1 October 2013  My wife and I stayed at Hilden Lodge which was easy to find as it is on the A 40 The owner. The rooms are named after the previous winners of the Cheltenham Gold cup, ours was called Golden Miller. The room was very clean and even had a small patio, which was unexpected. The meals we had were first class and when we go to Cheltenham again we would have no hesitation of staying at Hilden Lodge.

Tripadvisor: 30 September 2013 “Very good choiceWe chose well with Hilden Lodge. The room (+ en-suite) was immaculately clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent, copious and tasty, and all staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful.

Tripadvisor 17 September 2013 “Very enjoyable stayWe had a very enjoyable stay at Hilden Lodge on our weekend visit to the Cotswolds. Hilden Lodge is within 5 minutes drive of Cheltenham town centre and within easy reach of all the Cotswold beauty spots. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. Will visit again.

Trip advisor: 4 September 2013 “Exceptionally welcoming B&B+++I have been staying at Hilden through the week for 6 months now and cannot rate the service I have experienced highly enough. Having stayed here for such an extended period I have sampled almost all of the rooms in the place and they have all been very comfortable fitted with a shower or bath room, TV and DVD, tea and coffee facilities and modern decor. The beds are comfy and the room is always made up to a good standard with nice touches such as fresh towels folded into a design on the bed and extra biscuits provided. Despite being on a fairly busy road it is quiet during the night and I haven’t once been disturbed by other guests walking past rooms.  The choice of food for breakfast is lovely.  There is also a decent choice of food in the evening again cooked to a great standard.The Hilden has a relaxed atmosphere and welcomes couples, business people and families. There are car parking facilities out the front, and a fenced off garden and decking area. This makes it the perfect place for families with children or couples/singles looking to have a cold drink at the end of a long day. It is walking distance from town and there are local shops and pubs nearby. It is also on the London Road making it a perfect base from which to explore Cheltenham, the historic Painswick and the Cotswolds. I would definitely recommend making a trip to Hilden Lodge if you are looking for a comfortable, friendly, reasonably priced stay in a location that is much more than your average B&B.

Tripadvisor: 15 July 2013 “Celebration weekend” We booked 3 double rooms to enjoy a weekend away to celebrate my parent’s golden wedding anniversary in the Cheltenham area. The hotel was very clean, beds comfortable and superb breakfasts. We will definitely use the hotel again as it is also in a good location for the town’s amenities without being right in the centre – which could potentially be noisy. All in all a lovely weekend.

Tripadvisor: 1 July 2013 “Quality accommodation” Stayed here whilst walking the Cotswold Way. It’s a bit off the trail but well worth the extra walking distance. The accommodation was first class and the food  of extremely good quality. 

Tripadvisor: 3 June 2013  “Oz” Great place to stay and easy to find. Management extremely helpful and welcoming. Dinner and breakfast very good. The wine selection prices varied and didn’t break the bank cost wise! D,B & B price reasonable and of good value. Double glazing made the room quiet. Would recommend this establishment.

Tripadvisor: 8 May 2013 “Fab stay” We spent 2 days over the early May Bank Holiday weekend and had a great time. The double room although not massive was certainly adequate for our stay and the sun never stopped streaming in through the window. A taxi was organised no problem for a trip into Cheltenham and we borrowed a guide book to do a fab walk on the Sunday . Would definitely stay again as perfect location for touring the Cotswolds and would definitely recommend it.
