be restored to splendour

Hotel entrepreneurs Elaine and Martyn Booth are finalising plans for a major overhaul of the Grapevine in Stow-on-the-Wold.

The couple, who added the well-known Cotswold landmark to their portfolio lastmonth, intend to return the hotel to its former splendour at the heart of a thriving tourist community.

The couple bought the hotel from administrators at Moorfields CR in a deal brokered by Cotswolds hotel specialists Colliers International.

Elaine and Martyn Booth returned from Australia five years ago and have so far acquired the Royal Adelaide hotel, Windsor and Dial House inBourton-on-the-Water. Theyadded boutique B&B Halford House to the chain in 2011 and also have a property in Spain.

The couple plan to launch an immediate refurbishment programme and have called in additional staff to join the existing team, which kept the hotel operating while it was in administration.

Peter Brunt, director of Colliers International Hotel said the price for The Royalist had been reduced to 975,000.

He said: The Royalist is one of the oldest hotels in the region and represents fantastic value for money.

A superb hotel in a prime Cotswolds location on the market for less than 1m is surely an opportunity not to be missed.
