A huge disappointment!

  • 1 of 5

This apartment had fit all of our criteria when we booked it, plus it was within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and a quick drive to the Cotswalds. The gated parking was great and the instructions for accessing the apartment keys were very clear. When I opened the door my first question was; why are there dead leaves all over the floor. When I started looking around the apartment, I realized that the apartment furnishings were very different from the online photos, plus the apartment was absolutely filthy. My daughter went to use the bathroom and there was no toilet paper...anywhere in the apartment. When I inspected the bathroom, there was black hair all over the floor and when I lifted up the toilet seat there was urine caked all over it. Then I took a piece of paper towel, put it on the floor and rubbed it, and the paper towel instantly turned black. The apartment was dusty, the floor was dirty and the bathroom was not properly cleaned. l left a message with the emergency number as well as an email. We purchased cleaning supplies and toilet paper, came to back to the apartment and started cleaning. So instead of planning our day trip for the next day, we cleaned the apartment. My husband cleaned the kitchen, rewashed the dishes we would use and I cleaned the bathroom, and let me say, there is nothing worse than cleaning a urine covered toilet from a previous guest.

We received an email from Annette who apologized and offered to send their cleaning lady over the next day. I declined because i didn't want someone in the apartment when we were not there and secondly, we didn't want to waste a day waiting for her to show up. As a guest, our trust was broken.

This property falsely advertises how this suite is furnished. The apartment photos were staged with some lovely furnishings which actually aren't in the apartment. Secondly, it looks like this apartment hasn't had a thorough clean or quality check in quite some time. It was dusty, there was hair in the refrigerator and when you flushed the toilet, water bubbled up in the shower drain. Lastly, there was no offer to compensate us for the fact that we had to spent two nights in this disgusting apartment.

As an experienced traveller, this was a first for me. I have stayed in some dirty places but never in my life has it been that dirty that we had to go out and buy supplies to clean it. I would not recommend this apartment or the company that rents out these so called luxury suites.

Great town centre location with place to park car being a bonus. Can be noisy due to local night clubs (but for us only one evening was affected on the Monday). Wifi connection was found to be a poor reception.

All in all enjoyed being able to walk to most places in and around Cheltenham town centre with easy access to virtually all places of interest including the Everyman Theatre, galleries and restaurants.

Out of town visits to Winchcombe (lunch at the White Lion recommended), Stow-on-the-Wold and Boughton-on-the-Water all worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for highlighting the issue with the Wi-Fi. I've just put a new router in to fix the problem. I hope it didn't cause you too many problems during your stay.

well-located property

  • 4 of 5

Best feature is location to Cheltenham pedestrian area. Comfortable rather than luxurious.For people coming from another country an explanation re inner ring road would have been helpful (print off map and take with you. ) Similarly not practical to have to ring for instructions re key and key pad number when only carrying a mobile from Oz. Couldn't locate dvd,cd players ir hair dryer. TV small, but wifi very good. Despite some criticisms of the property its convenience outweighed these,

Owner's Response: Lovely guest to have stay. Would add that they stayed in The Studio apartment rather than apartment 4. We have taken note of their comments about the check in arrangements and are implementing improvements to make this much easier in future.

During the eighteenth century Cheltenham became one of the most fashionable health resorts in the country after King George III visited the town to treat his infirmities; establishing Cheltenham as a spa town. Regency town houses line the historic Promenade, squares and terraces and visitors are still able to sample the spa waters at the Pittville Pump Room; a short distance from the town centre.

Imperial Court is right on the doorstep of the town centre, being a short stroll from the principal street of Cheltenham - The Promenade - with its fine regency terraces, stylish shops, Neptune Fountain and the annual Christmas Market. The town offers good shopping, great restaurants, cultural activities, fantastic nightlife and three theatres: the Everyman, the Playhouse and the Bacon.

Similarly nearby are the Imperial Gardens, the Town Hall and Montpellier Gardens. These locations form the central hub for the annual Cheltenham Festivals of Jazz, Science, Music, Food & Drink and Literature.

Cheltenham Racecourse is a short bus or taxi ride away and is considered a world-class venue, hosting regular fixtures throughout the year, including The Gold Cup National Hunt Festival in March. ‘The Centaur’ is also at the racecourse and is a large venue for conferences, events, concerts and exhibitions.

All this makes Cheltenham the ideal location for an entertaining city break all year round.


As the Western Gateway to the Cotswolds, Cheltenham is an ideal base for touring the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Stratford upon Avon, Bristol and Bath.

The town is well served by excellent transport links via motorway, airports and public transport; all of which make for an easy journey to the many, varied tourist destinations located within a wide radius.

The area is well known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being ‘typically English’.

Throughout the area, the honey-coloured Cotswolds limestone features in buildings and stone walls acting as a common thread in seamlessly blending the historic towns and villages with their surrounding landscape. Offering breath-taking scenery ideal for keen walkers, the Cotswolds offers 3000 miles of public footpaths and offers one of the best kept ‘rights of way’ networks in the country.

The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty also contains a number of national and regional walking routes such as 'The Cotswolds Way Trail', 'Macmillan Way', 'Oxfordshire Way' and 'Shakespeare's Way'. Circular routes with self-guided leaflets are also plentiful.

The city of Gloucester is a short drive away, boasting a fine cathedral – where parts of the Harry Potter movies were filmed - and the recently regenerated Gloucester Docks area.
