Kings Court Hotel updated
The privately owned Kings Court Hotel is in the heart of Shakespeare country close to Stratford-upon-Avon and dates back to Tudor times. The 65 bedroom hotel houses both a brasserie restaurant and traditional bar area alongside function areas popular for corporate events and weddings.
The hotel’s public areas had not been refurbished for many years. With increased competition locally for eating and drinking destinations, the owners selected Jones architecture + design to assist with a refurbishment which was completed over the course of a year.
Phase one was to refurbish the traditional “Twisted Boot” Pub.
Architectural and interior design practice, Jones AD thought ‘outside of the box’ and rather than focusing purely on a design for the interior they advised that a new patio visible from the highway. The new furniture, jumbrellas alongside new signage, would benefit to draw in customers for drinks or food who may have previously considered Kings Court as a hotel for guests only.
Once inside the hotel, the entrance now incorporates a digitally printed archive map printed as wallpaper showing local points of interest. Abi Perry-Jones, Creative Director of Jones AD said: “The Twisted Boot is a really characterful and inviting part of the hotel but over time had become cluttered and looked a little dated and unloved. Our design has brightened up the space and makes the most of the building’s original features.”
The fresh new look included new upholstered booth seats which are hugely popular with diners, new light fittings and floor finishes.
“It made sense to retain some of the existing good quality furniture. Having it reupholstered and refurbished gave it a new lease of life and allowed us to be sensible with our client’s budget.”
