Expedia: Nov 2017 Perfect Stay One of the best hotels I’ve stopped in, from the minute we arrived till the minute we left aiden and his wife couldn’t help enough, and the icing on the cake was the breakfast, first class stay

Tripadvisor: Sept 2017 Great Deal  I stayed for two nights and was very satisfied with the accommodation. Also the staff were all very helpful. The Queens Hotel costs five times more than Hilden Lodge and is not as good. 10/10 from me!

Tripadvisor: Aug 2017 Well appointed Boutique Hotel Hilden Lodge is situated on the A40 10 mins drive outside Cheltenham. Its is in an excellent spot for touring around all the quaint little villages in the area. It has 12 rooms, all of which I believe are ensuite. I had booked a single room which was spacious, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, nice crisp white linen and soft white towels. A comfortable upholstered chair was provided. The shower was hot and easy to adjust, giving a variety of water power. Breakfast times were convenient from around 8.30am to 10am. A choice from full English to poached eggs with smoked salmon. The food was locally sourced, fresh, very tasty and well cooked. NO grease! Good choice of cereals, post of tea or filtered coffee, fruit salads, yogurts, brown or white toast. Just something to suit everyone. Ample parking is provided for guests with angled spaces which were easy to negotiate. Some rooms had a little outdoor seating area where you could sit with coffee and read your paper!. The A40 is a main road, but my experience was that it was not over busy during the day, and in the evenings the traffic dwindled to practically nothing. My room was facing the main road and I had the window open but was not troubled by traffic noise – even early morning. Our hosts were very welcoming and carried my bag to my room for me. Service was smooth, efficient and swift. I had a very comfortable 2 night stay. Thanks to Aiden and Shelley for making it so. I would not hesitate to recommend Hilden Lodge to anyone.

Tripadvisor: Mar 2017 Weekend break  We stayed for 2 nights from the 24th March. It was a fantastic place and Shelley and Aidan were lovely. The decor was lovely, and the room and bathroom had ample space for our 2 night stay (hubby is 6″3) The breakfast was great, and we even had a drink in the bar on the first night. It’s situated in a perfect spot with parking, and we got bus passes for the Saturday to go into Cheltenham, shopping there in the morning, then returning to the town in the evening for food and drinks. We were in a side room and had no problem with any traffic noise. We are hoping to return for our 10 year Wedding Anniversary in September.

Tripadvisor: Mar 2017  Personal warm welcome  Arrived early to get to the racecourse early for the last day of the festival and could not have been made more welcome. given the use of our room to get ready and assisted us with travel arrangements/directions. Perfect location, about a mile walk to Cheltenham centre but nothing too taxing either there or back. Wonderful breakfast freshly cooked to order, plenty of choice too.Spotlessly clean, nice traditional decor with little twists and lots or racecourse/horse related art.We have already booked for next year, thanks for such a lovely welcome x

Tripadvisor: Mar 2017 A great stay!  We stayed at the Hilden Lodge on 4th March as we were visiting a friend for dinner and drinks in Cheltenham for the evening. The accommodation is lovely, free on site parking, clean & modern rooms and really friendly owners. A taxi into the town centre was less than £10! Overall we were really pleased that we booked this hotel and would definitely stay again. Such good value and a bonus with on site parking and breakfast included! Thanks for a lovely stay!

Tripadvisor: Apr 2016 Perfect for Cotswolds Way hikers!  This is a perfect place to stay for those hiking the Cotswolds Way…and who need a well-deserved comfort break!My partner and I felt incredibly welcome as soon as we arrived at Hilden. Completely exhausted, wet and muddy, we were taken to our lovely, exceptionally clean, bright, and warm room to crash. Lovely en suit as well. The building is beautiful and we easily got a bus into Cheltenham town which took about 10 mins. Shelly and Aiden were incredibly welcoming and we felt right at home as soon as we stepped in the door! The breakfast in the morning was big and delicious and set up nicely for the walk. Lovely place, will definitely stay again when we’re in Cheltenham!

Tripadvisor: Mar 2016   Just like home Situated on the doorstep of the Cotswolds, the Hilden Lodge is run by a splendid couple who do their utmost to make your stay as comfortable and interesting as possible. Ever ready to suggest places to visit and even recommending, plus booking the splendid Restaurants where we had our Dinners. Shelley and her husband will provide you with an please and hearty breakfast, while providing you with clean and comfortable rooms. Will surely recommend it to anybody visiting the area. Thanks Shelley you made our stay a memorable one
