The hugely-anticipated Cheltenham Festival takes place this year from 15 to 18 March and is widely expected to break records in regards to the horse racing betting and also the spectator attendance.
So with less than one month until the prestigious festival, now’s the time to make your pick of some of these top accommodation options in the Cheltenham area.
The Cheltenham racecourse is handily located just north of the centre of the picturesque spa town, and as such offers easy access should you choose to stay central.
Much has been made of Cheltenham’s gorgeous Regency-period architecture, And if you’re looking to experience the aesthetic grandeur with a particularly French twist, then the Hotel du Vin can provide an attractive option thanks to its soft leather furnishings and acclaimed La Roche wine tasting room.
Another good town centre tip would be the Clarence Court Hotel that’s nestled amidst the tree-lined streets, and even includes the prestigious Joules restaurant that can provide the perfect way to celebrate after a particularly successful horse racing bet.
And much like you’d research your accommodation options, it can also pay to do a little research about the Cheltenham Festival betting with the likes of Bookies.com proving that it’s worth a bet on the nose when researching their massive coverage of the festival and all other top UK racing events.
But if you’re looking to inspect the form a little closer to the actual racecourse, then Ellenborough Park is actually connected to the Cheltenham racecourse by a private road. And though it may cost a little extra, it can certainly provide inspiration to splash out on some extravagant horse racing bets.
Another seriously impressive accommodation option would be The Greenway. This is just over five miles away from the racecourse, and it can be a good idea to take advantage of the regular special offers so that you can enjoy the deluxe hot tub features that add an extra touch of glamour to the Elizabethan manor house.
But if you want to leave some money aside for the horse racing bets, yet retain all of the luxury, then Cheltenham’s George Hotel can help you unwind after a busy race-day thanks to their stylish contemporary bedrooms, huge swimming pool and award-winning brasserie.
So just like the options in horse racing betting, there’s certainly no shortage of alternatives regarding the accommodation choices at the Cheltenham Festival.
