Queens Hotel, Cheltenham

Opulent, urban luxury with a decadently boutique twist awaits you at this elegant hotel in the heart of Regency Cheltenham.

Weekend Escapes


Palatial, plush and oozing elegance, this iconic hotel in the heart of Cheltenham’s hip Montpellier district is a stunning sanctuary.

One of the places to be seen in the spa town, it overlooks the famous Promenade with its boutiques and bars and the lush Imperial Gardens, and recently underwent a spectacular restoration, unveiled earlier this year. It also opened one of Muddy’s favourite new spots for a spritz, the Queens Summer Garden, where you can sip and dine in the sunshine surrounded by a stylish, lush courtyard and great atmosphere.

If you love boltholes steeped in history this decadent des res will thrill you. One of the first purpose-built hotels in Europe, built on the site of the original Sherborne Spa, it has been a favourite for nobility and royalty (it’s named after Queen Victoria) and many a historical figure (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edward Elgar) since 1838.

The Queens offers lavish Palladian-style elegance but with bucket-fulls of boutique twists. Part of the funky and stylish MGallery Hotel Collection, it has 84 individually styled rooms, from superior and deluxe to the Renascence Suite, with its sky-high ceilings, White Company products, 48 inch TVS, as well as views to die for over the town and gardens.

Foodies will be in heaven, with some of the most highly-acclaimed dining experiences in Cheltenham on offer, open to staying guests and visitors. Choose from the sumptuous new restaurant, Victoria’s, which serves modern British cuisine in an elegant dining room, Duke’s Tea Room for the hotel’s famed Queens Tiffin Afternoon Tea, The Gold Cup Bar for their celebrated signature cocktails, and of course the stunning Queens Summer Garden for alfresco drinking and dining.

Located in the heart of the spa town but just minutes from the best countryside the Cotswolds has to offer, it’s also a spectacular and stylish place for an event or wedding. Infact so good that it’s the chosen destination for the Muddy Awards 2021 Winners’ Party this year no less! And, if you’re looking to tie the knot, you couldn’t find a more majestic backdrop than the Regency Suite with its floor-to-ceiling, arched windows and golden chandeliers.

If you’re after that holy grail of majestic heritage combined with the coolest of contemporary vibes, this hotel is simply a must-visit.
