“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Lovely overnight stay in this fabulously central hotel. Room was in the new section it was large, clean, warm and very comfortable. The bed was comfy and big. Shower was great. Not a great view but I wasn't in Stratford for the view from my hotel room! Meal in restaurant was excellent - one of the best steaks I've had and particularly liked returning from the theatre for pudding! Lots of cost places to sit and have a drink. Staff friendly and helpful plus the large (free) car park is a bonus.

Good location in the centre of Stratford-Upon-Avon with the added bonus of free on site parking. Modern entrance that led into quaint oldy worldy warren of oak beamed rooms (bar and restaurants). Room was very clean and warm but slightly dated. Staff were extremely polite and attentive. We were there for a Christmas party and shared the function room with two other parties. The food was served on piping hot plates and was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. After the meal we danced the night away to a fantastic disco where the DJ readily played our requests and was very jovial. After a good nights sleep we had had a great cooked breakfast (again served on piping hot plates) along with a range of cereals, fruit juices, cold meats and pastries. Thank you everyone I would thoroughly recommend you and your hotel.

Short stay Stratford is a beautiful town, and would stay again if in the area, staff friendly, good breakfast, room clean but very warm, currently being refurbished, and some areas do need it, but generally ok. Easy access to town centre.

4 Of us stayed here for a Saturday night/Sunday morning.
On arrival the reception was very tidy and staff were helpful with the booking we had made.
We went to our rooms and found them very tidy and clean and very large,
The bath/shower area was clean a good quality shower and also provided with shower gel etc.
We did not have a evening meal but made sure we had breakfast the following morning, this was again a lovely setting with oak beams in the dining area with a help yourself breakfast;Bacon,Sausage,Baked Beans,Mushrooms,Scrambled Egg,& Tomato a good selection of cereal and fruit juice which was also help your self.
The staff were all friendly when we asked for a extra pot of coffee and tea.
At times we dont think it was quite worth a AA4 Star rating but still a very good quality hotel which we will for certain all go back to.

The hotel was not what we were expecting. Looks very quaint from the photos but is a big modernish hotel once you are out of the old part. The staff were helpful as we had to change the date of our stay by a week. The room itself was adequate, however, we looked out over a huge shaft. Needless to say, that was the cause of a dreadful night's sleep as it was (what we think) the extractor fan from the kitchens. It was on as we arrived and started very early the next morning. I am a very deep sleeper and it kept me awake to my frustration. The hotel is in the heart of Stratford so very convenient. I complained the next morning and the staff at the front desk apologised. Doesn't make much difference though. Was very glad to get home to my own bed. Definitely spoiled our night away which we do very infrequently. Just to warn others!

The frontage together with the bar and some rooms are very ancient and atmospheric, the rest of the hotel is quite modern and built on the back. If you were to think, by the pictures, that you staying in oak paneled and timbered rooms, you would be mistaken. That said the rooms are very spacious and well equipped with flat screen TV and all mod cons you would expect. The beds are very comfortable, the bathroom clean and fresh with a bath as well as shower.
WiFi was a little hit and miss in our room, which was located at the far end of the hotel.
We stayed in the Christmas party season and ate our evening meal in hotel, together with 5 other couples who were not on the party outings. We felt a little like the poor relations as most of the hotels resources were applied to the large parties, while we waited to be served in our small dining room. The food when it arrived was very nice, though the menu limited.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the main hotel reception for better WiFi if that is important to you

Thank you for your review following your stay at the Falcon Hotel. I am pleased that you found your room in the newer part of the hotel to meet all your requirements, we do however have rooms which are located in the original building and if this was your preference just let us know and we would allocate a room in this part of the building.

I was sorry to read that you were not made to feel valued during your dining experience, as the whole team work very hard to look after all our guests, but am glad you enjoyed your dinner.

Kind regards

Jason
