More of a pub with rooms than a hotel, The Fleece is spread out across three pretty townhouses, offering spacious rooms off a warren of higgledy-piggledy creaky corridors. It's set in a 17th century coaching inn in a grade II listed building right in the heart of Cirencester, steps away from the city's major sights. The rooms have a common thread thematically (Chesterfield sofas; oakwood beams) but are different in décor - some have floral wallpaper patterns and velvet headboards in bold hues, while others have sheepskin rugs and playful sculptures. The bar is a popular spot to sip a pint or two, and there's a restaurant and lounge area with crackling fireplace where you can enjoy a drink or a laidback meal.



You'll love getting lost in the quaint little courtyards off Black Jack Street, which is lined with gorgeous 17th and 18th century townhouses.

In a great location on Market Place in the centre of pretty Cirencester, a few minutes' walk from Cirencester Park.
By car: The hotel is a 2 hours 30 minute drive from London and around 1 hour 30 minutes from Bristol.
By train: London Paddington to Swindon takes around an hour. The station is a 30-minute taxi ride from the hotel.

Style & Character

There's a broad clientele - it's a good choice for those seeking a great central location and a laidback setting (and beers on tap on the ground floor). The original features such as the creaking floorboards have been retained, while oakwood beams add a warm and cosy touch.

There's a laidback feel and the staff are cheerful and friendly.

We loved Room 1 - it's spacious and cosy, with sheepskin rugs, vibrant blue floral wallpaper and pops of orange here and there. The beds are exceptionally comfortable, and rooms have a common thread thematically, although the design is not homogenous - each room has its own quirks and design.
