We stayed in the twin room.The room was clean and comfortable, although the beds were small. Our room was near the roadside but there was hardly any car passing by at night, so it's all quiet here. Staff was friendly. We had dinner and breakfast here , the food was nice !! Oh, and reasonable price too.

Staying at the Cirencester Travelodge I asked the receptionist for recommendations for a nice pub that does good food. The Catherine Wheel was that pub and I pass this on.

The pub serves good food for your evening meal and we stayed in one of the smaller rooms across the car park. Comfortable but stuffy, even with a fan and roof light. The bathroom was modern, clean and well equipped. The breakfast was a bit ordinary but overall for the money not at all bad. The stay was very enjoyable... More

Recently ate at this pub / restaurant with my family. We had reserved at table which worked out well given it was a busy lunch sitting on a Sunday.
