This is the hip place to stay in Cheltenham: classic on the outside, fashionable on the inside. With hangouts and hideaways aplenty, its newly landscaped sun terraces with outdoor bars and al fresco dining make for relaxed daytime get-togethers. There’s 36 fabulous bedrooms, including three family suites, which are adorable cocoons with divine beds, stylish bathtubs, bold fabrics, original artwork from some of the UK’s biggest creative names and period bathrooms for a touch of old-fashioned luxury. The elegance of the recently redesigned restaurant is complemented by the relaxed buzz of the downstairs late- night bar and Cheltenham hotspot, Gin & Juice, where you can work your way through a list of 400 gins and dance the night away every weekend with its resident DJs. As for the seasonal, carefully sourced food, menus range from casual Afternoon Pickings to Feasts, and there’s even a coffee menu, including No 131’s own unique house blend. Here you’ll find home-from-home comfort in the beating cultural heart of the Cotswolds.
