Food was excellent and very good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. We had our coffee in the recently refurbished Gallery with a roaring fire, it finished off the lunch beautifully.

Having been married at Ellenborough Park in 2013, we were delighted to celebrate our anniversary here. As always the food was delicious, the service excellent and the ambience very special.

Service has been much better on previous visits. Although service was friendly and pleasant, there were many personal touches that were just lacking. Our coats were not taken to the cloakroom, drinks menus had to be requested, no dinner menus given to look at whilst having predinner drinks, we were not invited to be seated at our table for dining, the wrong set of cutlery was presented for the main course, we were offered dessert menu before we had been served our main course, our table was not brushed down, wine not topped up, no offer to order our taxi. These lack of personal touches is why only two stars for service and value. When you pay for one of Cheltenham's best restaurants you also expect the best service in town.

The hotel and building itself is amazing and the staff all very attentive. Our evening meal: My boyfriend loved the artichoke soup and the chestnut pasta main course. I didn't really enjoy my starter and main unfortunately. I had the salmon starter which was a bit strong and more orange would have been great. The veal main was extremely fatty and wasn't to my taste at all, so I left most of it. The desserts however were amazing. My BF had the snow egg and loved it and I had the violet meringue which was so inventive and gorgeous, it made up for the veal.

I always love the food at Ellenborough Park. The range of drinks is excellent. The staff who serve are wonderful. I love eating in the Bistro itself and equally in the main restaurant. I am always very happy to eat at Ellenborough Park and I have brought friends to eat here in the past and would do so again.

Service courteous, but slow. Probably more kitchen staff is needed. Also we were supposed to receive a hamper for our homeward journey. We remembered it on the other side of Cheltenham. Should it not have been waiting for us when we checked out? Other than that e enjoyed our stay and found the hotel staff extremely helpful.

High quality food and generally strong service (mix of experienced and inexperienced, the former excellent). Nice atmosphere and lovely room. But charging (£4) for bread? Come on, you're not Zizzi.

Food beautifully cooked and top quality. The only reason I could not give 5 stars is that there were too many flavours with too many different ingredients put together. Just too rich.I am also not into flowers!

Food was lovely but service was shocking. We were served with an incorrect starter (two other parties we noticed were also served with 2 incorrect dinners). We had to wait over 2 hours for our main course. I did speak to the head waiter about this and he apologised for the delay and said it was due to a private function. I said in that case you should hire more staff!

Left waiting unattended in Lounge. Had to ask for the menu. Starters arrived before canapés. Chaos reigned on Wednesday 23rd August.

An excellent place to dine, from the historic building to the superb, friendly service. The food is outstanding although choice is limited. The recommended wines, by the Maitre d', were wonderful. We will return.

Stellar food! Cannot think of better food in an UK restaurant. Lobster followed by lamb really really lovely. Extraordinarily god cheese trolley. Host grumpy and told us off for being late. But hotel receptionist had promised to change booking. Entertaining Fawlty Towers antics at other tables. Plates arriving and then whisked away before customers could eat. One table of eldetrly agitated folk seated before us but as we left two hours later they were still waiting for their first course. We will go again but book a table as the restaurant opens.

After reading reviews my boyfriend and I have always wanted to go but the distance for us put us off - we decided that as this was the month neither of us were drinking that we would take the trip. Service was slow and not very attentive - it may have been my mood but as soon as we mentioned that we were not drinking the waiter seemed not as interested and I had to ask twice for my ginger beer and a cup of tea seemed a very large task. The lobster starter was lovely but the roast lunch was just average - I have had much better at cheaper restaurants.
