Scott Brown saved from Will Hatfield at his near post, but Cheltenham almost hit back when Jermaine McGlashan saw his sweetly-hit volley well saved by Ian Dunbavin.
Accrington extended their lead in the 34th minute when a Hatfield corner was not dealt with and George Miller slammed in his first Football League goal.
Things worsened two minutes into the second half when another Hooman error allowed Hatfield to play in Romuald Boco, who kept his cool to beat Brown and put the game beyond Cheltenham's reach.
Substitute Darryl Duffy went close with a shot that flashed wide, but Boco missed a good chance to make it four, heading straight at Brown with the goal gaping in the 75th minute and it was a day to forget for Mark Yates' side.
