The Fleece at Cirencester
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Cirencester
Reviewed 18 July 2012

Rather than staying somewhere rural for a friends family party (we live in the middle of nowhere) we decided to stay in the centre of Cirencester, at The Fleece. We were not disappointed, the room was lovely, although I suspect would be quite dark and a little hot if we weren't experiencing the dismal summer that we are. We didn't have dinner either nights (the breakfasts, though, were superb), but it looked buzzy and full of locals, which is a good sign. The staff were absolutely charming.

I was really pleased to read your feedback, and glad you enjoyed your stay here at The Fleece. We have a great team, who work had to provide excellent customer service. Breakfast to us, is the most important meal of the day, and I’m glad it didn’t disappoint! Hopefully we can welcome you back sometime soon, to enjoy Cirencester in the sunshine and our fantastic lunch and dinner menu!

Many thanks for your feedback, and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. I was concerned to hear the window did not open – they have security locks on, to prevent any accidents, but all of them should open to allow some airflow into the room.
I hope we can welcome you back sometime soon.

Location 10, staff 10, breakfast 10. But so noisy, 95 pound I would expect at least double glazing. We were shattered when we arrived but could not sleep until the bar closed. Premier inn for us next time.

Thank you for your comments and feedback, its great to see you were impressed by the hotel, staff and the breakfast.
I am really sorry you were unable to sleep due to the noise. We would love to have double glazing, but as a listed building, we are unable to change the windows due to planning constraints. We do have rooms at the back of the hotel, away from the road and the bar, so please let us know next time you are staying, and we can allocate a quiet room for you.
I really hope we can welcome you back to the hotel sometime soon.

We stayed for one night recently and found the young waiting staff excellent and very attentive. We paid for a medium sized room at £101 which was fine.....had a fabulous breakfast included the next morning. Then when we came to leave we were charged £3 for parking. I was very annoyed, not at the price, but the principle. We were not told about this extra charge initially and felt it a touch insulting after spending a substantial amount on the room. A shame as it tainted my experience so although a charming hotel....the little things like the unnecessary parking charges just make the hotel appear petty. When I queried the charge the staff member merely shrugged and look embarrassed. We won't return to the hotel.

Many thanks for your feedback, and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay here at the hotel, and the breakfast.
As a town centre hotel, parking is at a premium, and we do make a small charge for the facility which are explained on our website and confirmation emails, that said, you should have been informed on check in that there would be an additional charge for the use of it, so there were no surprises in the morning. I have spoken with the team, to ensure we are clear with our guests moving forwards.

Six of us ate here last night ( Friday 6th July ) there's nothing bad to say about the Fleece. There are plenty of friendly, helpful staff. The surroundings since the hotel was refurbished, are superb! Chic, modern and cosy. Our meal in the main restaurant was top quality with service to match. Chilled out music played in the background which enhanced the already great atmosphere. My wife and I now come to the Fleece regularly and have never been disappointed. Give it a go, you won't regret it !

We'd booked a weekend at Badminton Horse trials back in January....but then it was cancelled just days before due to the floods. However, we didn't cancel our booking at The Fleece and enjoyed a very happy birthday weekend there with family and good friends. Our room and our daughters' room were beautifully decorated, had comfortable beds and were spotlessly clean. We had a problem with one of our blinds, but a handyman with his stepladder was sent and all was sorted out within minutes. We had a good walk at Westonbirt Arboretum then stayed in at the hotel for our evening meal in the restaurant. Tasty food and good service and we were last to leave the restaurant, so a lovely evening. The 'breakfast bar' next morning was well stocked and the cooked breakfast good too. Have already recommended The Fleece to friends and we'd definitely like to return to this lovely part of the country.

It was such a shame that Badminton was cancelled this year, but we’re really glad that you came to Cirencester anyway, and that the team looked after you so well. Thank you for recommending us to your friends, and we hope to see you here again next year for the Horse Trials (with better weather hopefully!)

We chose to listen to the favourable reviews of The Fleece and were not disappointed. We spent the evening in house, with starters, mains, desserts and cheese, all very tasty. The service was excellent, the staff were very attentive yet unobtrusive the only fault was that they had run out of port!
The room was lovely if a little warm even with the windows open, some may not enjoy the church bells but we did and suspect that any establishment in the centre of Cirencester would be in earshot. They were very accommodating when we asked to leave our car a little longer after check out. We would certainly visit again.

Thank you for your lovely review – I’m pleased to read that you received such warm hospitality that I know the team offer every day. It’s also great to hear that you enjoyed Cirencester, it’s such a lovely setting with plenty of character – including the church bells! We look forward to seeing you here again soon, and next time we’ll try to make sure we have enough port in stock!
