A popular hotel in Cirencester is to undergo a massive £1m refurbishment as the ambitious new owners of The Stratton House Hotel unveil their exciting expansion plans.
The 39-bed hotel, owned by Aidan and Sarah Stevens, will kick off the renovation project in the autumn with the bedrooms being the first to go under the knife.
Next spring a refurbishment of the Oak Room bar, drawing room and restaurant will commence.
The Stevens, who also own the 31-bed St Andrews Town Hotel in Droitwich, plan to refresh the Georgian-style hotel by ‘introducing a feeling of ‘relaxed elegance’.
The couple bought Stratton House from the Oxfordshire-based St James’s Hotel Group.
Aidan said: “We have big plans for a full refurbishment of Stratton House and are determined to replicate the success we’ve achieved at our hotel in Worcestershire – ensuring we achieve the elegance and modern style people look for, but with a relaxed atmosphere.
“The first phase of our overhaul programme is already starting and guests will see an immediate difference, including upgrading the hotel’s free wifi which will be especially useful for business guests.”
The couple also confirmed that the existing team of 30 will be kept on as part of the new ownership and that locally sourced food will continue to be a feature of the hotel’s menus.
