Very central location in basement of the Municipal building. Parking usually not too much of a problem. Small so advisable to make a reservation.

We had an excellent meal here, Italian chain food at its best. Great olives to nibble on, delicious king prawn starter. Mum had seafood risotto which was really well seasoned and buttery. Brother highly rated his pasta dish, with side salad, one of their 'light' options. I had a new pizza. God I'm glad I went for classic size and... More

The rooms are recently refurbished, spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly. There is a bar, an Indian Restaurant (which doubles up for breakfast) and the guest house. Parking is a little tricky as there are no spaces at the hotel but you can park overnight or for periods not exceeding 2 hours, by paying, at the front of... More

Great authentic Indian food. Don't expect your tikka masala here. This is true Indian homecoming. Meat on the bone and gravy rather than 'curry'. Give it a go. The food is exceptional.

I really don't understand the good reviews of this restaurant - on the night we visited, we were the only table in so maybe we suffered for that. The carrot sticks we were given to start with we're really tasty and the samosas were great. Of superb quality was the naan bread which I enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately, the rest of... More

Nice row of houses on the Promenade of Cheltenham. Worst Indian (beg your pardon, Punjabi), we have ever been to. There was a party of 4 Americans, and another couple. This was at 8.00 p.m. Absolutely no atmosphere in the room at all. A lady (owner we think) brought us the menu. On the left hand page were the main... More

Really really good food! I honestly cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Both food and service first class. The owner made some recommendations and I loved the chicken pakora. The food is obviously cooked from scratch and was very tasty! A hidden gem.
