A stay at Ellenborough Park is like stepping into a grand English novel. The ancient manor house, set in the heart of the Cotswolds on the original Cheltenham racecourse, offers 61 bedrooms and suites located in four distinctive buildings. Think feather duvets, crisp Egyptian cotton, specially made large Hypnos beds, spacious bathrooms with underfloor heating and poolside family rooms and suites with small individual courtyards.
There are two dining experiences at the hotel; the Beaufort Dining Room is fine dining by chef David Kelman, who serves modern food with British influences and has been awarded three AA Rosettes. Indulge in a three-course dining experience or try their traditional Sunday lunch. Alternatively, the Brasserie and Hotel Bar offers classic British fare in a relaxed atmosphere.
It has an excellent country house menu and its spa offers a collection of indulgent, specially designed treatments using ila and ishga products, in seven treatment rooms including a couples’ treatment room. Or simply the chance to spend time in the beautiful hot tub, sauna, steam room, fitness suite or heated outdoor pool.
Trek along the historic, 100-mile-long Cotswolds Way, or borrow some or borrow some Hunter wellingtons, Dubarry boots and a jacket for a walk around the 90-acre grounds of the hotel. You'll also find 13 dog-friendly rooms at the hotel for those of you wanting to take your canine friend with you.
