The Stratton House Hotel in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, has announced it will build a luxury spa as part of a \u00a31m investment plan.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe owners of the 17th Century property unveiled the plans after permission was approved for the new facility, which will feature five treatment rooms, beauty suites, a steam room, sauna, juice bar and an outdoor jacuzzi.\r\n\r\nPlanned to open in early 2020, the spa will also provide 10 new jobs including therapist and receptionist roles. The 325 square metre facility will be built in the north east corner of the hotel, overlooking the hotel\u2019s listed walled garden.\r\n\r\nOwner Aidan Stevens said: \u201cSince taking over the hotel we have focused on turning it into a top Gloucestershire venue with a reputation to match. The new spa is very much part of those plans as it will take the hotel to another level by offering more leisure services for guests and the local community.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe now have an extensive eight-month build process to get the new spa ready and we are focusing on making every little detail perfect. We have visited spas across the UK and abroad and will be trying to replicate all the good practice we\u2019ve seen to give people a place in which to relax and unwind.\u201d\r\n\r\nHe added: \u201cIt is the icing on the cake that the spa will bring ten new jobs to the local community and add to the 40 staff we already have. Overall, the build will be another milestone in the hotel\u2019s history and we are certain guests will love the health and wellness facilities it will offer.\u201d\r\n\r\nStevens and his wife Sarah purchased the 44-room hotel three ago, and have since spent over \u00a31.5m revamping its bedrooms, function rooms, the public areas and restaurant.
