Explore Hotel

A peaceful getaway on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Set in 30 acres of secluded grounds in the glorious Wiltshire countryside, Cricklade House Hotel is the ideal retreat for those in search of tranquillity, relaxation and traditional home comforts.
Located near the pretty Cotswold town of Cricklade between Swindon and Cirencester, this tastefully restored and extended country house has 45 spacious bedrooms, plus three function rooms perfect for weddings and business events.
If you want to unwind, you can enjoy a leisurely lunch on the terrace, swim in the pool or round of golf on our nine-hole course. You can also sun yourself in our wonderful Victorian-style glass conservatory that runs the entire length of the original building.
With lots to enjoy in the hotel itself, we can't blame you if you just want to stay put during your visit, but if you do fancy heading out and about, the historic town of Cirencester is only a 15-minute drive away. Also nearby is Cotswold Water Park, where you'll find nature reserves, water sports, clay pigeon shooting and even a beach! Shoppers can pick up a bargain at the Swindon Designer Outlet Village and Orbital Shopping Park, while sports fans can enjoy speedway and greyhound racing at Swindon Stadium.

Dated hotel

21/01/2019 Explorer60778675305,

The staff are great. The rest is not pleasant. The hotel decor and carpets just look so worn out. Our room was stuck in the 80s. The pool area is ok but the changing room and steam room seriously nee... more

Disappointing meals

26/12/2018 alanandjan, Swindon, Wiltshire

The family had Christmas lunch here yesterday and, at a cost of £75 per head, thought it would be a special meal. Not so. The welcome drink was appreciated, and the parsnip soup was fine, but the main... more

Firstly thank you for taking time to share your feedback with us. We are saddened to hear that you left the dining room on Christmas Day feeling so negative, especially as we have had no chance to listen to your guest feedback before reading it now. I would be really grateful if you could contact me directly. This will give me the chance to investigate the issues further and hopefully make amends. I look forward to hearing from you soon, Kind regards, Ashley Rickman Ashley@crickladehotel.co.uk

Dear Nigel, I am not sure how important or useful this feedback is for potential guests looking to stay with us. Due to the hard work of the team we achieved a December we were very proud of, more than doubling the occupancy and dining covers from the previous year. It is a real shame that you were to visit us at a very quiet time. Please keep an eye on social media and our website as there are lots of exciting events, renovation plans and further improvements for 2019 that will create an even better experience for our guests. Kind Regards,
