Cheltenham Area Hotel ★★★

You will be allocated a good three-star hotel within a 90-minute coach transfer of Cheltenham Racecourse. All bedrooms will have private facilities, telephones, TV and tea- and coffee-making facilities, and all the hotels have good bars and restaurants.

Further Information

Tattersalls Enclosure upgrade

It is possible to upgrade your ticket on both days for a small supplement. Tattersalls provides extensive viewing steps, a betting hall, bars, buffets and the lounge on Level Three. Racegoers in this enclosure can also view all the activities behind the stands, including the Paddock and Unsaddling Enclosure, and have access to the Hall of Fame, the Gold Cup Restaurant and the Tented Village.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Chester le street Friends
trip to cheltenham races arrived thursday at noon cheltenham, after the races we were taking to swindon for accomodation and meal before returning to cheltenham the next day for 11am. Our tour guide kindly took on board the advice to leave an hour earlier than originally intended on the friday to travel to the racecourse. This was great as it gave us ample time to sample the atmosphere on the friday pre-racing and avoid the majority of the trafiic. returned home saturday night. well looked after throughout. great service.

coningsby Couple
first time we have been on a coach trip, was impressed with how drivers coped with any hiccups in a happy and professional manner, feeder coach driver very friendly too, hotel clean and tidy food good enough, long drives in dark a bit boring but that's the time of year and time frame required, nice to let someone else have all the worry. enjoyed the experience and would travel again with Newmarket holidays.

Transport and driver were first class. I would have liked the option of maybe better tickets for the racecourse. More of a corporate package although I understand that may be difficult to market and sell. On the whole we had a great time cheers.
