The rooms are just not clean. It needs a good scrub from top to bottom. Bedding was clean but that's about it. The staff weren't very interested. One barman advised a customer not to play the fruit machine in the pub as he had "just emptied it". Breakfast was terrible. The cheapest ingredients they could find. I couldn't eat half... More

Hotel was friendly, with a good atmosphere. Staff very nice. Situated right in the centre of Stafford. Good breakfasts. Room was comfy - it was in the eves, so a quirky shape! You have to bear in mind that this hotel is a 16th Century (?) coaching inn and thankfully it has not been gutted, stripped out and turned into... More

Stopped by with my wife for a night's B&B whilst on business in Stafford. Saw The Vine after leaving the Tourist Information Office with a list of out of town residences and decided to 'give it a go' First impression was of an old & quaint, Coaching Inn right in the centre of Stafford (tick). It has it's own car... More

We had to go to the area for a nearby event and was told about this place by friends. Really glad we listened to them as we had a wonderful stay. The receptionist took our details and showed us our room with a smile which set the tone for our stop. The room, although not the biggest had everything we... More

The Vine Hotel is in a good location and central to Stafford. We have stayed here on several occasions and never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Good food and value for money, (worth getting out of bed for the breakfast!) Rooms have all the necessary amenities including tea, coffee and biscuits. On... More

Having looked at the reviews on trip advisor I was a bit put off due to the negative feedback people had wrote about the hotel but I choose to give it a chance seeing as my work was taking me to Stafford town centre and the hotel is situated in the town centre which was ideal. I am glad I... More

We stopped in room 4 on Saturday 14th June. The room was shabby and dirty. The carpet had stains all over it. The built in hair dryer didn't work. The bathroom window was covered in mould which could have been cleaned off if they wanted to. The bathroom floor was dirt and the shower head was full of that much... More

Good Location - right in the center of stafford market. ----------------------------- Single bed-rooms are small and do not give a hotel type feel. ----------------------------- However, double-bed-rooms are larger and have bigger bathroom. Actually, A double bedroom with single occupancy feels good here, given that u are not 6 feet tall. ---------------------------- Breakfast is good, bar is even better (old style).... More

The Vine is a lovely, historic building, very atmospheric and a wonderfully warm welcome when you arrive. The room was nice and clean, the bed extremely comfortable, and the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. In terms of value for money, the Vine really takes some beating. It is situated right in the heart of Stafford, yet is quiet. If... More
