Stayed here many times as a couple visiting stratford. The rooms are fantastic, each one different. The bathroom facilities are also great! We have dined in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast which are both always enjoyable. Will return and would recommend to anyone. One of the nicest hotels in Stratford.

We had a pleasant room overlooking the theatre and the river, with a small but clean and well equipped bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. There is a lot to like about this hotel, but some oddly disappointing features which make it a definite 4* experience rather than five. Breakfast was good but the staff seemed strangely inattentive. We had... More

On our first trip to the area, I can enthusiastically recommend this hotel. The town is compact and the hotel is well-positioned to walk everywhere. The hotel rooms are large and attractively furnished, a tasty breakfast in offered and the staff are top class.

We stayed at The Arden overnight for my wife's birthday combined with a visit to the RSC theatre- just across the road. We had a lovely large deluxe room with a large bathroom and separate large walk-in shower. We had an early dinner before the theatre in The Waterside Brasserie which overlooks the RSC and the river- we both chose... More

Booked this just before Christmas for between Christmas and New Year. Is a gem. The staff are friendly, super efficient (need to move the reception as is freezing during winter - staff will get pneumonia!) and helpful. The rooms are of good size and beautifully designed - everything has been thought of including plug sockets, big bathrooms and good storage... More

We cannot recommend this city centre hotel highly enough. Well positioned for your short stay or visit to the theatre. Staff are simply outstanding, food excellent, very clean and well presented accommodation, bed comfortable, what's not to love?

We've stayed a few times before at the Arden in Stratford and also at the sister hotel, Mallory Court in Leamington. The Arden is ideally situated, just opposite the RSC. On this, our latest visit, we found the staff attentive, courteous and chatty. We stayed in the Master bedroom (the honeymoon suite) which is spacious and comfortable. Once again, the... More

A small hotel that looks like a country pub from the outside but far from it once inside. On check in we were upgraded to the Monkey Puzzle room and this feature room was great. A large super king bed, very large and luxurious bathroom, welcome fruit platter and mineral water and lots of charm. The room was on the... More

An excellent hotel - just two minutes walk from the theatre. Clean, comfortable and friendly. Unlike just about everywhere else in Stratford, that closes as the theatre turns out, The Arden offers a limited but excellent post theatre supper menu. Food at the Arden is very good - we had breakfast and the the superb afternoon tea as well as... More
