Ellenborough Park tops TripAdvisor ratings and gets five star status

The stunning luxury Cotswolds hotel Ellenborough Park  has shot to the number one slot for Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds and Cheltenham on TripAdvisor as travellers can’t stop raving about their experiences at this charming hotel.

In particular, the level of service and consistently high standards demonstrated by staff, together with the aesthetic lure of the property have been highlighted as contributing towards the overall experience, according to guests. Reviews include descriptions such as “couldn’t be better” and “words cannot describe how amazing this place is”.

In addition to this exciting news, the property has been awarded five-star grading (with merit) following an AA inspection. The quality, textures and finesse of the cuisine in the popular Beaufort Dining Room were specifically commended.

This news comes on the back of the property, which is part of the Mantis Collection, being named UK’s Leading Country House Hotel and UK’s Leading Spa Hotel by the World Travel Awards in 2011.

Graham Vass, general manager of the property, commented: “Please join me in congratulating my staff and, indeed all of you who have made this remarkable set of achievements possible.

“I am extremely proud of many things about Ellenborough Park but I do think that our well-chosen, well trained, excellent staff is the discerning feature which has contributed to our being so highly regarded and recognised.” He added: “On top of the recent World Travel Awards Ellenborough Park has a great deal to be proud of.”

Located near to Cheltenham and set in parkland adjacent to the Cheltenham racecourse, the stunning country house comprises 62 large bedrooms and suites individually designed by Nina Campbell, an Indian themed spa and a heated outdoor swimming pool. Dining options include the oak panelled Beaufort Dining Room for formal occasions and The Brasserie, with its country house menu, as a more informal setting.
