''Fantastic'' - reviewed April 2014 - TripAdvisor
"My bridesmaids booked this hotel as a surprise for my hen party. We were a group of 20 girls and had the best time. It seemed that nothing was too much trouble for the owners and they made us feel extremely welcome. It was the perfect place to hold the daytime pamper party and was Ideally located for the evening activities. Breakfast was lovely too. Thank you for letting us stay."
''The right balance - accommodating and hands-off'' - reviewed April 2014 - TripAdvisor
"Hilden House is a beautifully charming period property. Our hen party had exclusive use of the B&B over the weekend and it was ideal. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and were happy for us to get on with our partying only swooping in occasionally to stealthily tidy and replenish the delicious afternoon tea. It was great to have them on hand when needed but not looking over our shoulders."
You and your hen party can enjoy early evening drinks served in our fully-licensed bar areas and we will also serve you canapés and/or sharing platters made to order. Alternatively, on those balmier summer's evenings you can toast the bride-to-be in our lovely secluded courtyard gardens.
We are happy to arrange entertainment for you such as booking restaurants or luxurious treatments at the nearby Chapel Spa (only 5 minutes walk) - recent winner of Best Spa in the South West in the Good Spa Guide Awards 2012.

''Wonderful Hen Weekend at Hilden House'' - reviewed 23rd September 2012
"A big thank you for such a warm welcome to Hilden House for my hen party this weekend. The rooms were lovely, the house is beautiful, the courtyard garden is lovely and the full cooked breakfast worked a treat this morning! I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to stay in Cheltenham. You even managed to make the sun shine for our afternoon tea in the garden (and supplied us with suncream!). "
