Stroud’s iconic hotel is due to begin welcoming its first guests from 5pm, today.

The Stroud Hotel previously known as the Imperial, dates back to 1863 and was acquired by London-based S2 Estates in 2022.

Following a £2m refurbishment, the new hotel bar and kitchen is being spearheaded by creative director Steph Burrows, an ex-professional ballet dancer and the wife of Razorlight drummer, Andy Burrows.

Steph told Stroud Times: “We are delighted to announce we will be opening the Stroud Hotel, Bar and Kitchen on Friday, December 15th from 5pm.
