Arrived about 7.30pm in time to freshen up for dinner at 8.00 sharp. Our room was at the front overlooking the arrivals and entrance gardens. This is in the old part of the hall and it was charming.
The the doorways upstairs were small so if you're tall beware! The room was adequate with the usual things, tea, coffee fridge etc and being old the floors were uneven and squeaky so lots of atmosphere which we loved. Off to the side was a dressing room of sorts that then led into the bathroom. Robes were provided aswell as four towels plus soaps gels and shampoos.
Dinner was delicious. we began with seared scallops, me, prawns with smoked salmon, wife. we both opted for the calves liver that sat on a creamy mash with onion gravy and vegetables. Puddings were lemon tart with raspberry ice cream and a toffee panacotta with honeycomb. An outstanding New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc helped things along beautifully.
Although room was at the front of the hotel we were not disturbed and had a restful night's sleep.
Breakfast was freshly cooked so had not been standing around in one of those buffet style bars. There was a little wait but that was after a bowl of fruits with plain yoghurt but it was well worth the wait.
We had two nights here spending a day walking around Chipping Campden and the first evening at the theatre which is an easy stroll across the river. Stratford is an interesting place so both the hotel and the town are worth a visit and we shall return.
Staff were always helpful so no complaints there. We had room service after the theatre really quite late and no grumbles from either of us.
My wife had a spa treatment that she found very relaxing.
Recommended without hesitation if you stay in one of the older more atmospheric rooms.
