A new 11-bedroom boutique hotel has opened in Cirencester after the transformation of a Grade-II listed building situated next to a popular theatre.
Ian and Chrissie Carling have invested £500,000 into converting the former offices into new hotel, Ingleside House, complete with Tetro Italian restaurant in its basement.
The owners also ‘have interests’ in both the restaurant and the 200-seater Barn Theatre who is adjacent to the new boutique.
Speaking to SoGlos, Ian Carling said: “There are lots of hotels and accommodation around the Cotswolds but this one comes with theatre on its doorstep, and hopefully no drama within.
“Recent events meant that Ingleside House was no longer required as office space with so many now working from home.”
Over its 300-year existence, Ingleside House has been a private residence, offices for the WWII effort, a community centre and private school.
