This is a fantastic hotel - we booked it and RSC Stratford tickets at the same time and it couldn't be more convenient - from the final round of applause to sitting up in bed was exactly 10 minutes as the theatre is literally across the road. The hotel is very stylish, the welcome warm, the brasserie restaurant excellent (and... More

Lost count now of how many times we've stayed at the Arden - after having stayed here several times now and at many other hotels around the town it's still our number one choice in Stratford Upon Avon mainly due to the location (directly opposite the RSC) but also the comfortable rooms (and the plentiful free parking). On this occasion... More

A really excellent venue. Great facilities and nothing too much trouble for the staff. Our daughter Sam and now husband Tim held their wedding there 30 Aug 2015. Excellent feedback from her, all facilitated by the excellent Olivia Woolley, Wedding and Events Coordinator. John Hudson

Fantastic short family break. Room we had (Acer) was superb and was fine for us as a family room including two small children. Breakfasts were great, although the dinner we had was good but a bit pricey. Location is absolutely perfect and staff very helpful. Can't think of anything negative!

We dine here quite often, and it is usually excellent food and very good service.... However, today (Sun 30th August 2015) we were appalled that when we arrived, having booked online for an á la carte meal, the menu had been replaced by a selection of barbecue items. As the majority of the standard bar menu is also burgers, it... More

I stayed at The Arden whilst on a works conference, the hotel is in a great spot, its staff are helpful and the rooms are large, comfortable and well furnished. I will definitely be returning with my family to use it as a base to explore Starford.

Nice hotel, very convenient for the RSC. The setting is beautiful and the hotel is well maintained, room was spacious and we slept well. We particularly liked the red apples in the room on our arrival. We were only disappointed to find that the restaurant closed before our play finished and the room service menu is limited to sandwiches, bolognese... More

The access to the car park for this hotel is in Chapel Lane, which our sat nav found without difficulty by reference to the hotel postcode. The ample car park leads to an attractive paved courtyard surrounded with plants which in turn leads to the reception desk. We were a few minutes early, so were not surprised that our room... More

Recently stayed at this lovely hotel which is opposite the Swan Theatre so very convenient for anyone who is planning to see a play. The room I had was very comfortable, although there was a shower rather than a bath which I would have preferred. However, everything else was very good. Breakfast had an excellent choice and we ate dinner... More
