A new luxury boutique hotel is opening in Cirencester

A stylish 11-bedroom luxury boutique hotel is opening in Cirencester, creating jobs and promising to boost the town’s tourism industry.

Historic Ingleside House in Cirencester is being converted into a ‘stylish’ 11-bedroom luxury boutique hotel, creating jobs and promising to boost the town’s tourism industry.

According to the team behind the business, the new hotel is the result of a £500,000+ investment and will feature ‘inspirational design, theatrical exuberance and flawless attention to detail’ – a reference to its close neighbour, the 200-seater Barn Theatre.

Ten new jobs will be created as a result, with Ingleside due to open in late May 2021, with the aim of complimenting the town’s already attractive offering for tourists and theatre-goers.

Rachel Wright, executive director at Ingleside House, and the Barn Theatre, said: ‘Over the last 10 years the site has changed: in terms of its offering, but also its relevant cultural personality, this meant that our services had to reflect and adapt.

‘Ingleside, in its new guise aims to create a space and environment that will thrill our guests, providing them with something very special, be it one of our wonderful new rooms, a chance to watch amazing theatre, eat great food or simply enjoy a cocktail in our wonderful gardens.

‘The hotel is the missing link that we have been waiting for.’

Nearby Téatro Bar & Restaurant, already established in Ingleside’s old servants’ quarters (and described as the sister business of the Barn Theatre) is due to reopen on Friday 16 April 2021 at weekends-only initially.

Ingleside will also cater for events, from private dining to large garden parties, as well as teaming up with the Barn Theatre and other businesses to offer overnight packages to those visiting Cirencester.

Over its 300-year existence, Ingleside House has been a private residence, offices for the WWII effort, a community centre and private school. It was granted Grade II listed status in August 1992.
