I believe we speak on behalf of the whole community when we say thank you for all of your hard work so far during this pandemic. Now it is time for us to help you. Please put forward details of workers to or 01242 906600. PLEASE SHARE ❤️ #bekind #cheltenham #supportfrontlineworkers #supportnhs #thankyounhs.

We can offer an en-suite room and some breakfast although there will be some changes from the way we usually operate. We will bring breakfast to the room, for example, rather than asking you to come down to a communal area.
