The Cheltenham race season is one that we at the hotel love to get involved with and we very much look forward to seeing our guests at the finish line (bar!) sharing stories of success and generally a fantastic day they had at the races!


Linked to the Cheltenham Racecourse by a private drive, Ellenborough Park is the perfect spot to immerse yourself in the thrill of the steeplechase, listen to ‘The Roar’ and enjoy arriving in style in one of our luxury chauffeur driven cars to and from your day out! Get booked in to The Horse Box, our race themed pub, and enjoy the best of what Cheltenham has to offer during the races.
