Built in 1847, this restored villa in Montpellier, Cheltenham, is a luxurious Victorian hotel which specialises nowadays in hosting intimate wedding celebrations. With a splendid aspect looking out across the rolling Cotswold Hills, and in close vicinity to the spa town of Cheltenham, the hotel is ideally placed for romantic ceremonies and receptions. With a wide range of facilities and modern adaptions, yet retaining the elegance of a bygone age, intimate weddings are catered for with ease at Malmaison Cheltenham.

The villa has been operating as a hotel for over 100 years, and is now one of England’s Frasers Hospitality, an exciting UK hotel chain operated by the international company Swire. The passionate staff manage a fresh, contemporary establishment that still reflects its past and Cheltenham's Regency roots, and the 61-bedroom hotel is ideal for elegant wedding celebrations.


Malmaison Cheltenham started life as the Glenlee Lodge, a private villa which was demolished in 1847 to enable Samuel Onley's construction of a new building. In 1880, the villa was expanded and stylistically aggrandised, which perfectly suited its transformation into a majestic Cheltenham hotel in 1900.

During the last century the hotel has changed hands a number of times, operating first as a Savoy and then under Kandinsky, and has constantly adapted to Cheltenham's evolving society. The Swire group opened the hotel as The Montpellier Chapter in 2010, before it was finally Malmaison Cheltenham in 2016 under Frasers Hospitality. It still contains all the classical features of a Regency-style villa hotel, but now has some important modern adaptions and extensions, the most recent being The Crescent. Housing several new bedrooms, this reflects neo-Georgian architecture in a modern form, a nod to the hotel's mid-19th-century roots.



The deceptively spacious and bright Conservatory comfortably accommodates up to 30 guests for a civil wedding ceremony.

  • The Happy Couple – 04/08/2016

    We would like to offer our enormous thanks to you for helping us throughout the entire build up to the day itself. You were always very accommodating and flexible and put us at ease during the planning processes!

    The day itself was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff were all fabulous but we would particularly like to thank the lady who served us during lunch. She was so wonderful and also fabulous with our two year old niece and her service was exceptional.

    We were delighted with the looked beautiful and had a calming atmosphere. Everything ran perfectly from start to finish without a glitch so please accept our most heartfelt thanks for helping to make it such a wonderful day.
    We would definitely recommend the hotel to our friends and no doubt we will be back again in the future.
