Stayed here as a base for the Cheltenham races nearby. Great room which was very tastefully decorated which the rest of the hotel is, friendly staff and good food, couldn't ask for more. Would love to return for a weekend visit and would definitely stay here again.

My husband booked one evening here for my birthday, and it turned out to be an excellenct choice as this is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, both at home and abroad. On arrival we were a little disappointed with our room, as it was on the ground floor overlooking a road, but promptly and without... More

A lovely hotel and a super location. Excellent parking. One minute to the theatre. Friendly staff. Breakfast was very good. I'd go there again anytime. Views of the river from the restaurant. Very clean and welcoming.

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Arden. It could not be closer to the theatre and the room was excellent with a large bathroom with a walk in shower. The bar serves an excellent selection of cocktails and we enjoyed a very good meal. There is plenty of choice at breakfast and the staff are friendly and... More

Having booked an overnight stay as a convenient base for a trip to the Swan Theatre just opposite, I was very impressed with the service of this hotel. Initially we were told the restaurant would not be available in the evening due to a private function (which I was not happy about having paid for a package that included a... More

It was my wife's birthday yesterday so as a bit of a treat we decided to visit Stratford and have afternoon tea at the Arden Hotel which we had seen on Travel zoo so could take advantage of a special virtually half price deal. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the service perfect. Tea was really nice with unusual but... More

If you're going to Stratford either to see a play at the RSC or to tour the Shakespeare sites, this is the place to stay. Really well run. Good value. Great location opposite the RSC and by the waterfront. Nice friendly staff. Very comfortable room, Clean and modern. No complaints!

The Arden is the only place to stay in Stratford-upon-Avon. It does exactly what it says on the label. It’s small and it’s luxurious. I stayed once in the hotel before it became part of the SLH group, and it was not very good. I only returned when it changed hands, and it’s been such an improvement. If I can’t... More

The Arden hotel is a lovely luxury hotel in a good central location in Stratford on Avon. It has it's own car park at no charge - which is much needed as parking in Stratford is difficult. The waterfront is just across the road, as is the Theatre and all of the shops and many restaurants/bars etc within 5/10 minutes... More
