Ellenborough Park

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Ellenborough Park is an ancient house on the original Cheltenham Racecourse estate which has been restored as an exceptional destination hotel.

Providing the best in hotel accommodation and service, it is ideal for romantic interludes, weddings, conferences and celebrations.

Set in the beautiful English Countryside, Ellenborough Park is perfect for a rural getaway in an authentic period property.

Located just ten minutes from Cheltenham and set in parkland adjacent to the world famous racecourse, the hotel comprises 62 large bedrooms and suites individually designed by Nina Campbell, an Indian themed spa and a heated outdoor swimming pool.

Dining options include the oak panelled Beaufort Dining Room for formal occasions and The Brasserie, with its country house menu, as a more informal setting. Afternoon teas and Sunday lunches are also available. The hotel’s highly experienced Sommelier has selected a wide variety of wines from the excellent house Cabernet Sauvignon to rare vintage wines.

Exemplary service and maximum comfort of the guests is the primary objective of the management and employees.

Accommodation for the Bride and Groom

Romance is the order of the day for this sumptuous wedding venue and hotel in the Cotswolds, so an Ellenborough Park wedding comes complete with a luxury bedroom for the Bride and Groom's first night as man and wife.

Ellenborough Park also offers a Honeymoon Break which includes: a luxurious breakfast in bed with a glass of Bucks Fizz, full use of the facilities at The Spa, with a His & Hers massage in the couple’s treatment room, a bottle of champagne in the room prior to dinner and overnight accommodation and breakfast the following morning to ensure you can fully relax as man and wife after planning your perfect Cheltenham wedding reception.

To further sample Ellenborough Park’s delicious menu, you can choose between a three course dinner with coffee in The Beaufort Dining Room on Mondays to Saturdays, or a three course dinner in The Brasserie with a bottle of house wine on your Honeymoon Break.

An upgrade to one of the hotel's large open plan suites for the wedding night or for both nights can be arranged at a supplement.

Guest Accommodation

Ellenborough Park offers preferential rates for all guests who are staying as part of the wedding reception and can also offer a special two night rate, if guests wish to extend the celebrations further.


The World Travel Awards 2011's 'UK Leading Country House Hotel' and the 'UK's Leading Spa' awards have both gone to Ellenborough Park, Cheltenham's luxury hotel and spa.
