Grade-II listed four star Georgian country house hotel, Bowden Hall Hotel is gearing up to unveil its newly refreshed interior design scheme, following an extensive refurbishment at the property.
The hotel, situated in 12 acres, will show off its new locally-inspired look at the official opening on September 6.
The renovation has seen Bowden Hall Hotel’s public spaces, restaurant, bar, lounge and reception areas transformed.
Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who has previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on other renovation projects across the UK, managed the project.
She explained: “We wanted to give the hotel a new look, which was influenced by the hotel’s exquisite countryside setting and deliver locally inspired touches throughout, which lie at the heart of the design concept. The new interior fuses contemporary fabrics and colours with traditional, period features and detail, epitomising nostalgic elegance with a modern day style.
“There’s a Beatrix Potter inspired gold ‘M’ wall, a Gloucestershire inspired pig table complete with spots and a country forest mural; all of which enhance the hotel’s local heritage and picturesque countryside backdrop.
“We added pink leather and blue velvet chairs, a marble bar and marble coffee tables to convey luxurious elegance. Pastel tones are used throughout to deliver a serene and calming energy.”
The new look comes after the hotel’s Lakeside Suite was renovated last year, in a bid to better target the weddings and events market.
Commenting on the refurbishment, hotel general manager Gavin Jones said: “We are delighted with the recent refurbishment and feel the new design concept continues to elevate our new vision, enhancing the hotel’s heritage and local community, whilst offering a contemporary edge.”
Shane Harris, CEO Jupiter Hotels, added: “The investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the growth and transformation of our portfolio in the UK. The renovation of Bowden Hall Hotel provides a taste of what’s to come over the next year as we increase hotel development and elevate customer experience in the mid-scale sector.”
Mercure Bowden Hall Hotel is located in the Cotswolds country village of Upton St Leonards, three miles from Gloucester city centre.
