Please read our Legal Terms & Policies Email Where to stay in Cheltenham? Theres only one answer in the most complete Regency town in England Montpellier. It is arguably Cheltenhams most idiosyncratic and expensive neighbourhood. Developed in the early 19th century when the towns spa culture was really starting to simmer, today its an elegant assembly of Regency architecture and well-tended squares. This summer, a rather tired old hotel on a Georgian terrace overlooking Montpellier Gardens was revitalised as a grand holiday let. Montpellier House is the joint project of Andrew Chard, a former London estate agent, and Cheltenham-based antiques collector Andrew Seccombe, who has filled the house with a trove of period and modern collectibles from his nearby shop, Blighty Antiques. You cant fail to be impressed by the makeover and if youre really swept away, you can purchase anything from the house and have it delivered home, making this not just a luxurious rental but a living museum . The Rooms Arranged over four floors, the house has largely kept to its original specifications, with the kitchen in the basement, though now stylishly fitted out in creamy Cotswold stone and high-spec appliances that include two vast dishwashers.
