The Queens Hotel Cheltenham occupies the site of a former historic spa that operated in the small town of Cheltenham during the early 1800s. In the early 19th-century, entrepreneurs Thomas Henney and Samuel Harward rushed to Cheltenham to partake in the booming spa industry that was rapidly emerging in the area. The two constructed their facility in 1818, which they named the Sherborne Spa. The spa did not last for long, though, as it ran out of natural spring water two decades later. New owners then obtained the site, transforming it into a luxury hotel. Completed in 1838, the hoteliers christened the new building the “Queens Hotel” after Queen Victoria. Since then, the building has continued to host guests vacationing in the tranquil Cotswolds. Today, Sofitel operates this wonderful establishment as the Queens Hotel Cheltenham - MGallery by Sofitel. Queens Hotel Cheltenham - MGallery by Sofitel sits at a prime location in downtown Cheltenham, a place often cited as the most complete Regency town in England. Indeed, the hotel gazes across the Imperial Square and Gardens toward dozens of other spectacular buildings, including the Cheltenham Town Hall. From the hotel, guests can head southwest along the Promenade into the affluent Montpellier District for shopping and sightseeing. Guests can also catch one of the many festivals that Cheltenham hosts throughout the year, which celebrate music, literature, and food. Many visitors are especially allured by the town’s signature event, the Cheltenham Festival, home to the Gold Cup horse race. The hotel is also a splendid base from which to explore the surrounding Cotswolds. Renowned as one of England’s favorite destinations, the Cotswolds offers guests fantastic gardens, bustling farmers’ markets, and a pleasant café culture. The Queens Hotel Cheltenham is wonderful for any guest looking to escape into the picturesque English countryside.
