The Experience

This hotel has a guest book signed by Pierce Brosnan and Kylie Minogue but you, your children, and the dog will be welcomed with equal grace. There’s much to do in a huge choice of drawing rooms and good food and drinks are served in several different areas, all lively and bustling.

This isn’t an old-fashioned hushed sort of place: staff wear a uniform but there’s a light-hearted feel and they are über efficient without being in the least fawning. Children can go to Kids Club, you can wind down in the spa and there’s even a warm water tap for hosing down your dog. And across the road there are three acres to explore.

Broadway has two museums, a fantastic deli and lots of independent – rather expensive – shops, but you’re on holiday. Walk to Broadway Tower in half an hour, hop on a steam train or hire bikes. Return for drinks in the atmospheric cocktail bar before dinner.

The neighbourhood

Broadway is a thriving town in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are lots of shops and good places to eat, including The Swan, Russell’s Restaurant and the Broadway Deli. Anybody interested in design will love the Gordon Russell Museum and the Broadway Museum has regular exhibitions and talks. Many good walks start from the town and you can get to Snowshill Manor, Sudeley Castle and Cotswold Farm Park in under an hour by car.

Local points of interest from Jenny Martin

  • Explore Broadway highstreet.
  • Take a walk to Broadway Tower.
  • Perfect location for exploring Cheltenham and surrounding area.
  • At The Lygon Arms, you can visit the suite that Oliver Cromwell stayed in the night before the Battles of Worcester in 1651. See the carvings of John Travis’ name on the arch of the front door, etched into the hotel’s history in 1620.
  • The hotel’s name has changed throughout history, and the first written record refers to it as The White Hart, in 1377. The hart, a mature stag, was a personal symbol of King Richard II (1367 – 1400).
  • The hotel’s name would change several times, reflecting the political changes of each era, showing how much history would shape the enchanting hotel.

The welcome is genuine, your car gets parked for you, you’re offered a drink while you check in and nothing appears to be a problem for these jaunty, caring staff members.
