One night stay. Had lunch and dinner here, slight mix up at dinner sorted quickly. Great for on both occasions and actually not as expensive as the room rate would suggest. Stayed in Hawthorne room. Great room, massive very comfy bed, lovely bathroom. Can't find any faults to be fair. Originally thought room was expensive but after staying, thought it... More

This is really a little gem to find. A great location on the waterfront and friendly staff and lovely spacious room. Lovely little touch of the miniture milk bottle in the fridge for the tea/coffee etc. and the complimentry travel bag provided on check out with water and snack etc. would stay at this hotel again and would recommend it.

Sitting in the sunny courtyard opposite the River Avon, with a glass of bubbles. Life doesn't get much better than this....or does it? Yes, it did because the delightful staff bought our delicious afternoon tea. The Arden Hotel has parking, a rarity in Stratford, superb staff and great food. I accompanied my Dad who is blind and needed assistance with... More

I stayed here before starting my Shakespeare's Way walk & with it being situated across the road from the RSC Theatre, it made perfect sense as I was also seeing a performance that evening.

From beginning to end the hotel was superb. Met in the car park (not many hotels in central Stratford have their own car park free to guests); bags taken to room; beds turned down each night... the list of exceptional service just goes on. This was a fantastic location - right opposite the theatre. Not a single negative and will... More

Wonderful hotel. Fairly easy to find in the car with gps (bit crowded streets) and big car park. Very friendly staff who were so helpful. The hotel is clean and polished -- modern and yet maintains comfortable style. The bar and restaurant are lovely and service is great. The food at breakfast is topnotch with so many offerings we could... More

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at The Arden Hotel this week. My Husband had booked it as a surprise for my birthday and our room, together with the champagne and flowers he had organised, did not disappoint!

Just stayed one night and the room was nice and the facilities were all very proper. Waiting for a drink on the terrace in the afternoon took ages and anyone could see they did not have enough people to work the tables. They have one of the nicest places to have a terrace drink and the management should staff it... More
