“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great location with your own private view of the Avon.
Very helpful and friendly staff.
Having stayed in both Exec & Standard rooms I can say they are both of excellent quality.
Bar staff are superb, with special thanks to Luke.
My favourite part is the breakfast, sets me up nicely for the day.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and I would definitely stay again.
2 minute walk to the centre of town, the river and the theatre it cannot be beaten and in relation to hotels which are near it is relatively cheap.The staff are helpful and friendly, the rooms clean, well appointed and quiet. The WIFI was diffcult to access and not cheap. There is tea and coffee making in the room,TV, air conditioning but no fridge.
The outside facilities are lovely however the bar is poorly stocked with no cocktails and we were served a warm bottle of Prosecco as they had to get one from the store cupboard. The down stairs ladies toilets also need to be checked more regularly as they were often untidy.
The breakfast is all buffet but there is plenty of choice, well cooked and even though they are catering for so many the wait was not too long. The breakfast room is light with lots of window seats. There was however the dreaded toaster and you had a choice of damp limp toast or it being burnt to a crisp. If you are checking out at 11 on a Sunday I would advise you to either be the first there or go at 11.30 as you will have to queue for about that time to get to the desk. All said we had a great time and will stay here again.

We have stayed in this hotel for theatre trips to the RSC over the past few years, this year's stay was the best. The recent renovations of the reception, bar, restaurant and riverside seating area have improved the hotel so much. However the best asset of the hotel is the delightful staff, everyone we came across during our two night stay was professional and very friendly. The location of the hotel is brilliant for the theatre as well. We will be back!

We booked last minute and were looking for something central in Stratford Upon Avon for 1 night. We could not have found anything more perfect. We stayed on Friday 18th July (my birthday)the communal areas have just had a refurb and are ultra modern and to a lovely standard and certainly has the wow factor when you walk in. The Terrace sat by the River Avon was the icing on the cake it really was stunning and on the hottest day of the year it was pretty perfect. We stayed in an older room, apparently some of the rooms have been updated and it would be nice to see what those rooms are like, although dated the room had a large bed think it was a Queen bed and the room was immaculate and smelled lovely and fresh. The drink prices are on the high side and the service on the bar is slow, they could definitely have more people serving drinks. But the location couldn't be any more central, its perfect. We will definitely stay at this hotel again but will request a refurbished room.

Room Tip: Request a newly refurbished room
