Glide through the revolving doors into Queens Hotel, Cheltenham and you enter a splendid civilised haven where guests are the centre of highly attentive and discreet service.
Full appreciation of the lavish Palladian-style edifice, with its immaculate symmetry and classical Greek and Roman influences, is encountered on approach from the Promenade, an elegant, tree-lined avenue on which Queens is ideally positioned. Built over 170 years ago to accommodate wealthy visitors to the town’s many natural spas, the eminent Cheltonian landmark has been warmly accommodating locals and visitors to the town’s cricket, cultural and steeple-chasing festivals ever since.
Visitors often meander the surrounding Montpellier district, a fashionable area of elegant residences, chic cafes, smart boutiques and specialist merchants. After a morning browsing the shops, it’s simply wonderful to retreat into the sumptuous hotel to take coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. If more peckish, head into the Restaurant for a divine dinner.
