In centre of beautiful historic market town of Cirencester yet very quiet and peaceful. Really friendly, helpful staff. Very clean following all Covid guidelines. In short walking distance of Roman and Norman sites, friendly pubs, restaurants, cafes and great shopping. Wonderful selection of markets - farmers, crafts, flea. Modern facilities in restored historic building. Can't praise it high enough. Would definitely stay again.

Cracking place to stay.
It was a great place to stay in Cirencester. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. My only issue was check in was not until 4pm and check out was 10am.

Good stay
Very welcoming gentleman on Arrival. Superb location and comfy but a real squeeze in the rooms and a bit noisy with the nightclub near by. Generally very happy with stay and great price.

Disliked: Room comfort
Didn't expect 5 star hotel. Some shelves on the walls will be nice to have and maybe hooks. Not recommended for family with kid's as not enough space. But still nice place for this price. Close to shops and restaurants
