If you’re looking to create an unforgettable experience in Cheltenham, be it an intimate wedding, black-tie event, the work party of all work parties, or an ultimate family get-together, our gorgeous townhouse hotel provides a laid back, fuss-free and picturesque setting to do just that.

Hire our entire hotel infused with genuine warmth, attentive service, and a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, for exclusive use (anything from one to three days) and make our house your home. You’ll have complete access to our iconic townhouse hotel and all that makes it special. That’s all 13 boutique bedrooms, our light-filled restaurant, secret garden, cosy lounge, speakeasy bar – and a team dedicated to ensuring you have the best time imaginable.

Exclusive Use

Arrive to a full-flowing fizz reception. Unpack and unwind in one of our beautiful bedrooms, each individually designed with a touch of Georgian elegance, and join us in the restaurant for a natter over a champagne and canapés.

Mooch around in our gorgeous lounge spots. Hit the bar for a cocktail masterclass, then settle in for sumptuous five-course meal served by Head Chef József.

And when it’s time to call it a night, simply head upstairs to bed (there’s just something about our pillows). When it’s time to tear yourself out of bed, make a beeline for the breakfast room for a spectacular morning feast.

Testimonial, Christmas 2023

”From the moment that we stepped through the door, we experienced a friendly, well-prepared and courteous team who were professional but not stuffy, and for whom nothing was too much trouble.

Joseph the Chef, and his team were outstanding. The food was excellent throughout and was served at a pace that worked for us – with lots of in-between requests for the youngsters. The foodies amongst us felt that the dinner on Christmas Eve was worth a particular mention but so too was the fabulous Christmas lunch that we all enjoyed.

The team at No 38 have a very special culture and knack for making guests feel at home.
Thank you for a fantastic Christmas away from home.”
