Another great stay at The Arden Hotel - one of our favourite hotels in the UK. We had a really comfortable room with a great view overlooking the river. The food is superb and fantastic value in a lovely setting. The location of this hotel is perfect for the RSC, shops and all attractions and the free parking is a... More

My husband and I recently spent 12 nights in many different accommodations throughout the U.K. and the Arden Hotel was by far our favorite. It was priced right, we had an exceptionally warm welcome, the room was gorgeous, and the amenities sealed the deal (the tea, cookies, fruit, and sparkling water were phenomenal treats after a day of driving). We... More

Thank you for providing an excellent level of service during our recent stay in Stratford to visit the theatre and celebrate a birthday/ anniversary. The staff are most friendly and attentive; the dining experience is first rate. We appreciated the room upgrade which reflected our specific reason for selecting the hotel.

Asked for a quiet deluxe room and had Pine - 2nd floor at top of stairs. It was indeed a quiet room, no major noise after 11pm. Massive comfortable bed, and a large and very nice bathroom. However, my initial reaction was it looked a bit worn in places, particularly when I was expecting a wow factor room considering the... More

It was a last minute decision to stay overnight in Stratford, and The Arden was recommended by the TI office. We were impressed. Large bedroom/bathroom, comfy beds, and excellent service from very friendly staff who advised on nearby restaurants.

Stayed for a few nights and loved the hotel. We come to Stratford a lot and loved in particular the location as well as the hotel itself. The rooms were modern and the bathroom was huge. Breakfast was very nice but we did not eat in the evening so can't comment on that. The bar was in the restaurant which... More

This was our second year staying in this hotel, last year, perfect, nice room, tight like most older UK hotels and they have a great breakfast. We dined before the theatre, walked across the road and had desert at a reserved table after the show. The team were great and the location fabulous. This year, a better room, view of... More
