Peter Brunt, from Colliers’ specialist hotels team, said: “The Corinium Hotel is in a strong position in the beautiful town of Cirencester, at the heart of the Cotswolds.

"The trade at the hotel benefits from a good mix of customers who come to enjoy both food and beverage, as well as having a strong rooms business driving strong profits. 

“Having been a regular customer earlier on in my career in property as our offices were next door, I’ve seen the business grow and develop and since it last changed hands there has been significant investment in the business which has resulted in an increase in room rates as well as consistent custom in the bar and restaurant. 

“This is a great opportunity for someone looking to start their career in hospitality or for those wanting the experience of running their own business as they ease into retirement.”
