My husband and I stayed at Alveston Manor for our anniversary last weekend and had a really lovely time. We arrived on Friday afternoon and the very helpful receptionist went out of her way to make it possible for us to check into our room straight away, even though we were early arriving. We were offered tea in the lounge while we waited. The lounge was warm and welcoming, this was a great start to our weekend! Our bedroom in the Manor House was everything we had hoped it would be. It was traditional in stlye with beautiful exposed beams and creaky floor boards yet offered everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. We walked into Stratford in the afternoon. It's a few years since we have been to Stratford and the town is looking better that ever. Bancroft Gardens has been updated and does wonders for the town, i can imagine this would look beautiful in the summer!! We visited the RSC, did lots of shopping and booked our tickets at Shakespeare Birthplace to visit the 5 houses the following day. There is so much to fit in!! The hotel in perfectly located and within 5 minutes we were back in the warmth of the hotel lounge. All staff were so polite and friendly, they remembered us from when we checked in and asked about our day. Service on such a personal level is so hard to come by these days! Dinner that evening was excellent and offered a wide selection of choice. The restaurant service was fantastic and the staff we spoke to could confidently advise us on wine and food choices. There is a really homely feel to the hotel in the evening. My husband went into the gym on Saturday morning and I used the swimming pool. The Health Club, although busy, was very clean and for me, it was great to be able to have a proper swim in the large swimming pool rather than the small pools you find in most hotels. Breakfast is served until 11am at the weekend and this flexibility worked really well for us. The high service standards and friendliess continued. Breakfast had obviously been very busy earlier on, but the continental breakfast was fully refreshed and the hot plated buffet really se us up for the day! All in all a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. We left feeling relaxed and refreshed and would definitely return. If visiting Stratford, i would highly reccomend this hotel!
