An adjoining restaurant also serves meals throughout the day including a full evening menu complete with a range of vegetarian dishes. If you fancy something thats not on the menu, the staff will attempt to make the dish of your choice.
As well as a restaurant, the hotel also features a well-stocked bar, perfect for those looking to wind down without having to venture to the town centre.
Services are also offered to business travellers, with the property containing meeting rooms. Weddings are also on the list of events that regularly take place, meaning that youre likely to see a diverse clientele frequenting the hotel.
Believed to be one of the most affluent locations in the UK, the town of Cheltenham is not lacking in entertainment. Visitors will discover that various different festivals are held within the town throughout the year. You can expect everything from literature to science festivals, as well as a number of musical events (jazz, folk, and general music are all represented).
As well as being home to a number of football and rugby union teams, Cheltenham also features occasional Gloucestershire County Cricket Club fixtures, normally a part of the Cheltenham sports festival, and is also home to the Croquet Association, croquet being a quintessential English game.
The biggest sporting event in the region though is the Cheltenham horse racing Festival. Equestrian meets take place at the Cheltenham racecourse in the neighbouring village of Prestbury between October and April. In March the Festival, one of the UKs biggest, takes place culminating in the Gold Cup, the most prestigious of all national hunts.
Cheltenhams real appeal though is its closeness to a region of natural beauty. The Cotswolds, a range of hills in West Central England, provides a beautifully scenic location for those hoping to get away from the complexities and greyness of city life. The rolling landscapes have been designated an Area of Natural Beauty by the British authorities.
Closer to town and the Cheltenham Regency Hotel youll find the mineral springs for which the town is given status. Having been discovered in the early 1700s, tourists have flocked to see these naturally occurring features for 300 years. Said to contain elements good for your wellbeing, the many visitors look at Cheltenham as a health resort within a charmingly historic town.
