Not a 4 star apartment
The apartment was well placed for exploring Cheltenham but the noise from the nearby nightclub could be heard from the second bedroom until after 0430 hours.Some of the furnishings were poor, the faux leather table was peeling and the dining room table marked, not what you would expect from a 4 star advertised apartment, there were not enough glasses in the kitchen,none of the mugs matched, several were stained, there was no shower or attachments in the main bathroom and no toilet brush .The bedrooms definately required a coat of paint as the corners were marked and chipped and walls scuffed. Having said that we had a good time and enjoyed the local area and town, the apartment could be great with a little upgrading and a few small purchases to update the items mentioned.The apartment was clean, the bathrooms smart and the beds were well dressed and comfy. 3 radiators did not work and despite leaving a message for the owner we were not contacted back all weekend.

THE LOCAL AREA:
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.
