Hotel with links to Domesday Book gets historical refurb

A historic 17th century hotel with a history that can be traced back to the Domesday Book has re-opened after a major overhaul of its main hall.

The 36-bedroom Stonehouse Court Hotel, near Stroud, has focused on local materials and industry to refurbish its interior.

The colours and fabrics in particular, including cotton in natural tones, have been chosen to showcase its link with the Cotswolds cloth trade, which in the 15th century was the region's main source of income.

Sarah Brewster, of Stonehouse Court Hotel, said: "The long awaited refurbishment has really brought to life our fascinating history, dating back to the Domesay Book and the intrinsic link to the industrial heritage of the area. It's a big step forward for Stonehouse Court Hotel and we are absolutely delighted with the results."

The hotel, which is managed by Bespoke Hotels, has a restaurant, terrace, bar and conference rooms, a gym, plus a garden wing with banqueting facilities.
