Whether you’re going away to enjoy a relaxing break, want to spend some quality time with your partner, family or friends or you have a work related event to attend, the hotel you choose can be the difference between a great trip and a disaster. Join us as we discuss the anatomy of a perfect hotel break and the top qualities that make a good hotel.

Rooms that impress

what makes a good hotel

Your room is your main base when you’re staying at a hotel. It’s the place where you sleep, relax and treat as your own personal sanctuary, which is why it’s essential your hotel has the perfect room and ambience. This can range from having beautiful furniture to a mini fridge and more. At The Greenway Hotel, we’ve recently refurbished our bedrooms, giving each room a unique colour palette, personality and character that invites you in. The carefully thought out designs have blended the hotel’s rural setting on the edge of the Cotswolds with its rich history, enhancing period features such as original stone windows and roaring fireplaces. 

As well as this, room layouts have been altered to help create great spaces and create larger bathrooms, placing your experience at the forefront. Whether you’re a couple or a large group, our rooms can cater to your needs. Remember, when considering what makes a good hotel, first start by looking at the rooms available and pick out the ones that appeal to you based on furniture, size and overall ambience to ensure your stay is heavenly. 

Supporting local

What makes a good hotel

Another factor to consider when deciding what makes a good hotel is whether the hotel in question supports their local community. We all like to do good for others, and choosing a hotel that cares about their local community is a great indicator for how they will welcome you to their hotel too. Eden Hotel Collection has always worked with artisan and local suppliers. For The Greenway Hotel and Spa, this includes Leicestershire-based Wreake Valley Craftsmen, who have allowed us to create bespoke joinery such as bedside tables, desks and wardrobes for our stunning rooms and renowned Kidderminster manufacturer, Brintons, who have provided wool carpets that our guests love. 

Finding fun in the local area

What makes a good hotel

It’s true that a huge contributor of a good hotel is the amount of activities, events and sites there are available to visit in the local area. Getting out to explore the local attractions is a must and it’s even better having these places close by or easy to travel to at least. 

At The Greenway Hotel and Spa you’re able to discover Cheltenham in all its glory, with a range of upcoming, exciting events to suit a wide range of tastes and interests. From the popular and funky annual Jazz Festival, the globally renowned Literature Festival, to Cheltenham Pride celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and the delicious Food and Drink Festival – you’ll be spoiled for choice of things to do and enjoy when staying with us.

Exquisite dining experiences

Not every hotel has a restaurant, but the ones that do usually stand out when looking at what makes a good hotel. Not only is a hotel restaurant ideal for guests who want to remain on site, it also adds an extra layer to the guest experience.
