“Really lovely hotel!!”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Doesn't look much from the outside but the hotel is lovely, I was here on business but the location to Stratford is perfect, the bar is excellent and all the staff are very helpful, the rooms are excellent I stayed in room 328 which was large and had everything you could possibly need I would highly recommend if your ever stopping in Stratford.

Stayed one night only B/B/DINNER. The hotel is a very pleasant place to stay as stratford at christmas is lovely with the crimbo lights on. The hotel staff were very pleasant and welcoming,only downside was we were relegated to the bar area for our meal as there was a party going on in the restaurant however the meal was very nice indeed and served with a smile. Breakfast was probably the best i've ever tasted and again served with a smile.Will certainly return to this hotel in the near future.

As mentioned by other travelers, the hotel rooms indeed look newer and better than the picures on the web site. Price is on the high side which maybe there are better alternatives given many B&B around. We asked for extra beds for the children but the couch mattress is too thin and not comfortable.Breakfast was good.

After a shaky start with our booking which was solved by the very efficient Mr Matt Shakespere we had the most great weekend. The hotel rooms are big and all appear to have been recently renovated. They look even better than on the hotel web site. We stayed for 2 nights and all the meals we had were of good quality. We found all the staff great help from the maps given to us at reception to the waiters/waitresses in the bar and resturant.
With reference to the parking charge - at £5.00 a night it was worth it for the great position of the hotel. Just a quick walk into town.
Thanks to all the staff and have a great Christmas.

I was looking forward to my stay here after a great time at the Queens Hotel in Leeds. It was easy to find and the receptionist was efficient and organised but unfriendly and unhelpful. The parking fee was a shock at £5/night and not what I expected. I did ask for an alternative but Iwas expecting too much for assistance with that. We had hoped we could get into our rooms a little early since the weather was so awful but that was not possible.

Our room was stylish, clean and comfortable but crampt and poorly laid out. It would have been ok on my own but sharing a room posed problems with cupboards that blocked the way and very little space to move around. Again the Q hotel at Leeds is much more spacious. The view from the window was disappointing too.

I enjoyed our breakfast which included porridge and berries, a good combination. The staff in the restaurant were helpful and friendly and the cleaner also - she was happy to provide some tea and coffee on request.

We did sleep very well and the bed was comfortable. I didn't hear any noise although my partner said he heard the occupants upstairs.

I was disappointed to read about your arrival experience please be assured this will be reviewed with our Front Office team. In terms of car parking there are adjoining car parks to the hotel, however being town centre they do request a far higher fee than for the hotel car parking. We do ensure that we remain competitive at all times. We do have some rooms that provide a bigger floor space and sitting area, should you be visiting again I would recommend a Q Star room.

This is probably the only hotel I stayed in where the rooms actually looked better than the photos on the website! Except for the 5 pound charge for parking your car, this is actually a really great hotel. From first stepping into the hotel and being warmly greeted by the receptionist, the experience was almost faultless. The double guestroom we booked was super spacious and almost like a suite with a small sitting area. It had a king-size bed which was super comfy. Bathroom was amazing - two sinks, timber flooring (or at least it looked like timber) with top-end sanitary fittings (Villeroy & Boch)! Wished I could stay in this room forever - so sad it was only for one night! Breakfast was also great with a wide choice (although the coffee wasn't exactly the best). Location was also quite good - just a short walk to the main street with many restaurants and pubs to choose from. Price-wise, was great value - highly recommended and my top choice for anyone staying overnight at Stratford-upon-Avon!
