With a few minor changes this afternoon tea could have been really good but fell short for silly reasons : 1. The special lounge set aside for afternoon tea customers was delightful, well furnished with a lovely ambiance. However because it was a separate room there wasn't a constant or even regular staff attendance in the room meaning we had... More

We returned here this week after a very long break - not quite sure how that happened as it is so comfortable and well placed for the theatre, etc. Our spring B&B package included cream tea & fizz on arrival, plus dinner - very good value! The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff very attentive.... More

A fabulous hotel with very welcoming staff. Nothing was too much, from helping with our luggage to recommending wine for dinner. Our room was wonderful with a great range of extra touches like fruit, milk and water in the room.

Got a good last minute deal and stayed 2 nights on a leisure break with family. Our rooms were on the ground floor at the rear facing the car park. There was a green hedge screen as a wall in front of car park so was actually quite cosy and quiet. Our rooms were nicely decorated (paintwork could've done with... More

We stayed one night at The Arden and thought it was a great hotel. The staff were all very friendly and the room we had was well decorated with a massive bathroom. As some others have commented, if you want a room with more of a view (our room looked out onto a quiet side street - Juniper), it is... More

Stayed for one night in March and would certainly stay again. We were upgraded on arrival to the Mulberry Room which had a roll top bath in the bedroom as well as a shower room. The hotel staff were lovely and had left a card and some chocolates in the room for my birthday. Location is very central-right opposite the... More

The room was very and cosy and very quiet. The shower was very good and a turn down service. We had breakfast which was well presented and... More

As part of a group attending performances at the RSC, the Arden was the perfect location. The hotel has an intimate atmosphere although it accommodated our large group, and nicely combines a feeling of being quaint and updated at the same time. Our room had plenty of space with a large cupboard in an small alcove, and very comfortable bedding.... More

I stayed at the Arden hotel for a couple of business days, we also used a meeting room within the hotel. From a location point of view, it doesnt get any better, its right next to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and all of Stratford is within very close talking distance. The hotel itself offer very nice accomodation - we had... More
