We believe the making of a good country hotel is all about having a great community spirit and offering fun for all.

To walk into a country hotel and feel welcome where people want to know where your from, involve you in what's on that day/evening, receiving great service and make you feel welcome to come back again soon,we feel makes a great country hotel.

The Chelty has a long history in the district and will continue to do so for many years to come. We strive to supply top service with a smile, entertainment to everyone that visits the hotel from our locals on handle club night to the many visitors from across New Zealand and occasionally from Cheltenham, England who have popped into see their namesake. We have our animal residents who are typical to a good country hotel, two cats named Oscar and Chelsea.
