We attended a Sunday wedding this winter at the Stonehouse Court Hotel, I was the photographer for the event so I stayed for the whole day, through to the end of the night. I found the hotel staff friendly, polite, helpful and efficient. The hotel is a little dark inside but kind of cosy and oldy worldy. There is a small bar, and good sized restaurant nice with nice modern décor and the like. This served as the ceremony room for the function I attended. The grand sounding Caroline suite is a function room which I saw when it was empty, and thought it looked a bit bland - but when it was decked out for the wedding breakfast and later that evening for the couples evening function disco and buffet it looked great. Acoustics are very good the guys disco system sounded amazing in there and the proliferation of ceiling halogen lights created a really nice look, and photogenic I thought. The food was reasonable wedding fayre: soup was pleasant enough, I enjoyed it but nothing exceptional. Main course chicken, mash and side veg was quite small and fairly safe in terms of flavour (middle of the road, no risk). Desert was delicious. Staff managed the service very well once again. For the bedroom we had room 26, I don’t know if it was a standard room or a suite upgrade etc. The bed was mega-comfortable and big (after 12 hour day, was much needed). Nice view via a big bay window of the large lawn. The building from the garden looks splendid, it is a nice backdrop for some photographs. Quiet and relaxing on a nice day I’d say. Breakfast was a bit of a pain – after a wedding you’d expect to saunter down to eat at 10.00 am, but hey! The food was all finished and closing at 9.00 am!! Crazy-early for guests staying on a Sunday night I’d of thought, and therefore we only got some cornflakes and had to ask for coffee especially. Location is handy, just 5 minutes drive from the Stroud exit of the M5. Overall you have the feeling the people working there all pull together and try very hard and I think they do a great job overall. I’m not going to nit-pick. Recommend you try it.
