Hilden Lodge


Hilden Lodge Guest House is a 13 bedroom property, located just under a mile and a half from Cheltenham Town Centre. In the Charlton Kings area of the town, situated on the main A40 just past Sixways, Hilden Lodge is owned by Denman’s Ltd, a 3rd generation family run business.

Following the purchase of the property just over 12 months ago a number of changes have been made including the addition of four new bedrooms and the complete makeover of the existing rooms.

To celebrate the works Nik Irvine and Lizzie Lloyd, the Managers, hosted a re-launch party on Thursday 23rd September.

The champagne was plentiful along with some fantastic breakfast canapés. Having just won the Visit England Breakfast Award it was the perfect way to showcase the breakfast offering.

The Guest House was closed to regular guests for the evening so party guests were able to view all the guest bedrooms, as well as the bar area and restaurant.

Lots of local businesses were invited and some of the guests included people from the Cheltenham Tourist Office, Cheltenham Festivals, Horwath Clark Whitehill, Abbey Furnishings, Lamata Contract Furniture, Inlingua Language School, Cotswold Life and Kohler Mira Showers to name but a few.

All appeared to be impressed. Trish Sullivan from Horwath Clark Whitehill commented afterwards “I think it is the most stylish guest house I have ever seen”.

Hilden Lodge has a 4 star rating from Visit England and combines deluxe ensuite accommodation with fantastic facilities including complimentary parking, a licensed bar, extensive DVD Library featuring great new releases, ground floor bedrooms, an outdoor decking area and garden and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout.

It was also a great opportunity for Denman’s Ltd to showcase their second property, Hilden House, formerly Hannaford’s. Located on Evesham Road, just a five minute walk from the town, it has been extensively refurbished over the last 6 months. Its’ Managers, Lisa and Steve Gould were on hand during the evening to chat to party guests about both properties.

Both venues are perfect for a family celebration or business meeting. They can turn their hands to anything and have hosted and catered for Christening Receptions, Family Celebrations of all kinds, Funeral Receptions and even (well behaved!) Hen Weekends.

Hilden Lodge and Hilden House are also both available to hire on an Exclusive Use basis, with very competitive rates.

Both properties combine excellent accommodation, with a friendly family atmosphere and represent excellent value for money.
