4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We've stayed in most of the 4/5 star hotels in Stratford and have concluded that the Holiday Inn offers best value all round. Coming towards the end of a major refurbishment the public areas (reception, bar, restaurant) are spacious and there's plenty of room. There's also a spacious terraced riverside decking area which is perfect for a glass of wine... More

Stayed here for business/leisure with my daughter and will be back next week. I haven't given it the full five stars because of a couple of let downs. Room was very comfortable and spacious too, but we were woken up every morning at 5am by quite loud mechanical noises. There was also drilling from about 9am onwards which made it... More

Location to downtown area, river with boats, Swan theatre, national express bus terminal and lots of restaurants are all an easy walk. Hotel lobby and bar etc is all new and modern. Lovely back terrace. Rooms were spacious and we're in the midst of a redo when we were there. Location is worth it and the rooms can only be... More

I have been going to this property many times over the years because of its excellent location for the RSC theatre and all the other sites in town. Over the years it has become neglected and worn, so it was a wonderful surprise on this last visit to find that the public areas and the rooms have bern very attractively... More

Stayed for two nights on a bed, breakfast and evening meal food was excellent, service was brilliant and even thought they were still renovating some of the rooms on the first floor you could not hear anything on the other floors or corridors.

Excellent stay, room brand new, triple aspect room, huge space for 4. Hotel and restaurant staff service and efforts were great - slightly let down by pool staff reception but overall do recommend. Refurb currently being carried out but did not affect us at all.

The Hotel has a great location, just in front of the river and 6min walking to the Shakespeare house. Most of the staff are friendly. Breakfast faboulose. The rooms are quite big and confortable, they have a good hair drier and an iron. The only thing I didn't like it was the bathroom, old-fashioned and looked a bit dirty even... More
