Disabled Access

The hotel does not have a fully equipped disabled bedroom, but it does have a ground floor double which is accessible for a wheelchair.

History of the hotel

The Hotel was built as an Elizabethan wool merchant's house, around 1595. It is likely the Tudor oak beams, now exposed in the top floor rooms, are ships' timbers, from nearby Gloucester docks, salvaged less than twenty years after the English defeated the Spanish Armada. 

As an important house close to the centre of this thriving market town, the Hotel was modernised in Georgian times when the street façade was refaced in dressed Cotswold stone and sash windows and shutters were added. Later the Victorians extended the property and walled the gardens.

During the Second World War Wing Commander Knowler owned the property. Pilots and aircrew from RAF Kemble were the first guests, billeted here throughout the Battle of Britain. 

Since the war, the property was mainly operated as a guest house and subsequently as a small Hotel, when the garage (formerly the Stables) became the Courtyard Bar.  The old coach house made way for the current Restaurant, which was added around 1975. 

In 2000, six additional bedrooms were added, two on the ground floor and four on the second floor in the old attic area, which included exposing many more of the old beams.

Child Policy

Children under 3 years stay & dine free of charge when using existing beds. 
All older children or adults are charged £15 per person per night for extra beds.

Room upgrades may apply. 

Dogs Policy

Dogs are permitted at a fee of £10.00 per night.

Location & Local Attractions

Cirencester, recognised as the "Capital of the Cotswolds", is an historic Roman town previously known as Corinium, from which the hotel has taken its name. The Corinium Museum is only a few minutes walk away and contains the Roman history of the town and surrounding area. The remains of the Roman Amphitheatre can also be visited nearby.

The Corinium Hotel is situated in one of the oldest parts of Cirencester with many buildings of interest in the surrounding area. It is just a five minutes walk to the Market Place, which is the heart of the town and the site of the impressive Parish Church of St John Baptist with extensive grounds and a lovely river walk. Guided tours of the church are available.

Also only a short walk from the Hotel is the Bathurst Estate, which is the home of the Earl Bathurst. The house is not open to the public, but the park is well worth a visit and open daily from 9am to 5pm. The entrance gates are at the top of Cecily Hill with the Broad Ride continuing for just over a mile, all of which is lined with Chestnut trees.

Cirencester Market is held every Monday and Friday in the Market Place with the Farmer's Market every other Saturday. There are also regular antique and craft fairs in the Corn Hall and the Bingham Hall.

My stay for long weekend

Karl T, West Midlands, stayed: October 2018

We were greeted on arrival by the owner with a very warm welcome.
He showed us to our room and asked if we were happy with it.
The room was fine. The only thing that we had to moan about was the shower which at the end of our stay, the owner informed us that they are in the process of change all the shower heads. Bar prices were very good and food was wonderful.
We enjoyed our stay very much and will go back to stay there.

Good hotel close to town centre

CB, Hampshire, stayed: August 2018

Spent two nights here. The hotel is well positioned in a quiet road a short walk from the town centre (400m) and open air lido. Good car park and garden. Comfortable room but access via steep staircase. Not a problem for us. Good bar and restaurant.

Relaxing break

Penelope, Beds, stayed: May 2018

We stayed for 3 nights and dined in the restaurant each evening. We could not fault the service, friendliness of staff, location and outside sitting area. However, we believe Off Peak Luxury is not a guide as to what to expect. Our room was far from luxurious. We appreciate that the hotel was busy (perhaps not off-peak then) and we were not offered an upgrade for that reason. Wicker chair in room was not fit for purpose. Although I weigh only 8 stone, when I sat on the chair it wobbled from side to side, therefore I advised my partner not to use it. Also there were bits of wicker sticking out which could damage clothing. Clothes had to be hung in a curtained recess. I am only 5ft tall but a knee length dress was touching the floor. One of the mismatched bedside lamps had the bulb protruding above the shade. From our attic room we could have touched a slate roof from the small window. Other higher window looked out to a tall chimney. As I say, hardly luxury. I have photos to prove this. Would we stay at the hotel again? Certainly but would book direct with hotel and request a good room and pay the extra. First time we used Off Peak Luxury and will be our last.
