Hotel on the Park stands opposite Pittville Park in what many claim to be the most complete Regency town in the country. A handsome white mansion Dating from the early 19th century, it was erected as a private residence during the period when Cheltenham stood at the height of its fashion as a spa town.
Inside the hotel, guests find a chic contemporary reflection of the period style. The bedrooms are luxuriously decorated and appointed, with swagged curtains, antiques, fruit wine, mineral water and bath robes, even a telephone alongside the Victorian tub bath in the more indulgent of the bathrooms. In the drawing room and library french windows overlook the trim rear garden, a surprisingly tranquil retreat in the heart of a bustling town. Most striking of all is the small-scale restaurant, not least for the two large teddy bears which permanently occupy one of the tables in the elegantly striped and curtained room. The food is as decorative as the surroundings, with a team of chefs preparing attractively presented, adventurous, yet unfussy dishes in the modern British idiom from a daily changing menu, supported by a list of more than 120 wines.
The 'capital of the Cotswolds', Cheltenham makes an ideal base for visiting Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle, and has itself much of historical and social interest.
