We stayed for 3 nights partly over the Bank Holiday weekend to the following Wednesday, the hotel was very busy but nothing was too much trouble , the staff were all extremely helpful and attentive. The owner advised that the first night was very busy and he only had a compact double but could change us for the subsequent nights, guests should make themselves aware that this is an historic building in many parts and therefore stairs can be steep and beams in the wrong place but that is part of the charm. The downstairs room we moved to was great does have a little noise from the pavement directly outside, but accommodated out 2 little dogs perfectly. The staff were excellent with our 2 little dogs and laid breakfast up for us in the bar area so they could be with us.
The breakfast was excellent , all waitress served at present but an extremely wide choice presented well with attentive staff we did not have to wait at all. There is a full continental choice and a complete hot choice too including smoked salmon.
The hotel is in a perfect location being just a 5 minute walk to the town and with plenty of free parking .
The owners have only recently purchased and I am sure with their enthusiasm and commitment this hotel will go from strength to strength.

Upon arrival it seemed lovely, the bar and restaurant were lovely and the staff were very nice and very professional, however all that glitters is not gold.
We were assigned room 16 which was up 2 flights of stairs, very small and narrow stairs, not suited for anyone with over 5 size shoes, the only way go climb them was sideways so my shoes would fit on the steps, they ere also very steep, I felt like a sherpa setting off to climb Mount Everest.
This was merely the beginning, upon opening the room and ducking down not to hit my head on the door, I tripped over a beam sticking out of the floor just behind the door, which appeared to have a baseball bat nailed to the top of it, and subsequently banged my head on the low roof beam directly ahead of me.
After I had recovered my first impression of the room was that it appeared a little gloomy, this is probably because it didn't have and=y windows, well it had 2 skylights, 1 without any curtains which caused the sun to stream in through it in a direct beam into my eyes, not ideal when you are trying to sleep off jetlag after an international flight.
My next realization was that the room was rather small, dominated by a quite comfortable 4 poster bed, this however was the highlight of the room, ahead of me was a small work desk with one electrical outlet.
To the right was the bathroom, the door appeared to be about 5ft so tall, but in fact it was a lot smaller than that because the bottom of it was a 6 inch beam of wood which yo have to step over, into a small bathroom which appears to have a slightly lower floor than the bedroom.
To the right was a bathtub but it only had cold water, a small sink and mirror greeted me directly ahead while to the left was the toilet and a drop in shower, which was manufactured for use by very slim pygmies, it was also on a pedstal, raising it up about 8 inches off the floor.
After squashing in sideways and turning the water on, I got a wet head, there was not enough room to move my arms and hands about to wash my parts.
Upon exit, I stepped out of the shower and immediately dropped 8 inched to the floor, causing my right knee to give way, luckily just a couple of inches ahead of me was the sink, which my knee hit with some mentionable force, after the pain wore off I exited the bathroom and tripped over the ceiling beam sticking out of the floor, lunging forward resulted in my head hitting the baseboard of the bed, causing an additional headache.
After recovering from that I noticed the postage stamp sized TV sitting on a table in the corner with a small kettle and a selection of tea and coffee,
There was a small table and 2 chairs by the side of the bed, after sitting on one and turning on the 15 inch Big Screen TV I immediately felt somewhat odd, almost as if I was sliding across the room, I wasn't drunk at all, I thought maybe this was the end, but then I realized the floor wan not level, the floor by the front wall was sloped by about 5 or 6 degrees, kind of like te crazy house at the fun fair of years gone by.
So if you survive dragging you luggage up the side of mount everest (actually the nice staff did help) just be aware that everything in room 16 is designed to hurt or injure you, otherwise it was very nice.

Stayed here midweek for business, I thought that the hotel was lovely, my room was great and very clean, all of the staff were courteous and helpful.
The food and food service were really good as was the breakfast.
Highly recommend staying here.
What a little gem !!

Booked a couple of days here at the last minute and I'm so glad I did. Situated about a 5 min walk from the town centre, it has free parking, a beer garden and great food. All of the staff were helpful and very friendly. The only minor drawback is that the stairs to the rooms are very steep and not suitable for the disabled or anyone not steady on their feet. When next in Cirencester, I'll definitely stay here again.
