Where to stay for the Cheltenham Festival 2022 is a question you may ask yourself, and we have the answer…


There are a number of hotels within close proximity to the racecourse but all come at a price which some may be happy to agree to for the short journey to and from the racecourse however, there are a number of nearby hotels which offer the perfect place to rest your head (and your feet for that matter) after a thrilling day of racing action.


Racingbreaks.com offer a variety of hotels in the wonderful and exuberant city of Bristol which straddles the River Avon in the southwest of England. The City is steeped in maritime history and the city-centre port is now a cultural hub with numerous restaurants, shops and cultural institutions.
