No. 38 is a rather stylish boutique guesthouse. Overlooking Cheltenham’s Pittville Park. It exudes a relaxed warmth as you enter. With its chic lighting and mix of antiques and unique furniture, it serenely achieves a happy combination of glamour and homely comfort.
Far away from the capital to feel like you are stepping away from things, but close enough for a weekend away without too much travelling time.
JoJo showed me to my room, there’s 13 rooms and each one has a different feel to them. I had an ‘excellent’ room and this was rather lovely too.
The bed was covered in crisp white bedding with multiple pillows and the roll top bath took pride of place in front of the windows (glossy white plantation shutters for your privacy obviously).
I would highly recommend relaxing in the bath with a cotswold gin, listening to the evening traffic fade outside your room as it gets darker.
I chose to relax and take advantage of the hot chocolate and cookies that were delivered, whilst literally sinking into the bed and with dimmed lights, super cosy robes and films.
Waking up the following morning it had stopped raining for the first time in days; the sun streamed through the windows and the soft light created a soft glow throughout the room as the rest of world started their day outside.
therefore it was a leisurely start to the day. The details were there though, how amazing is this shower for example… each room is unique, I had a sneaky peek at one of the largest rooms, which was amazing. However, even the Acqua di Parma products in the bathrooms were a lovely touch.
A mix of period details with calming neutrals and accents of blues and greens create a laidback feel.
Breakfast, is a laid back affair served in the restaurant, it is a buffet spread of juices, pastries, granola, yogurts and more. Cooked options range from smashed avocado to baked beans with black pudding. The staff work behind the scenes with a subtle yet professional presence.
The soft hues of the restaurant reflected the overall decor of No.38, however on your way into the dining room be sure to take a glance to your left with a rather impressive bar and the corridor is lined with dark wood cabinets housing varies wines and champagnes.
No. 38 is part of The Lucky Onion Group, I’m already looking forward to visiting their sister hotel….
