“Lovely Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights end of May for our 42nd wedding anniversary. Got a special deal. Room very nice and comfortable and clean but a bit on the warm side during the night as the hotel still had heating on winter rate. However staff said they would fix it. Not their fault really as the English summer decided to put in an appearance for the weekend. Only downside was service at dinner-very slow so food cold when it arrived. To be fair they apologised. Would stay here again but not bother with dinner.

Had stayed here before about two years ago and had great time then...Things hadn't changed..a lovely friendly hotel close to the centre and local restaurants/bars etc...Breakfast was lovely and everything cooked fresh plus loads of choice cereals/fruit etc...short of nothing.....Rooms were a good size and the decor is slightly dark but adds to the luxury feel...we will definately be staying again and were so impressed that we have booked the hotel for a surprise for our daughter and her boyfriend....I have stayed in other Q Hotels and all have the same lovely standard...well done Q Hotels for fabulous affordable 4 star accomodation! :-)

Just stayed for 3 nights in a room facing the garden. The room is a bit small with low ceiling an dark colours, so it feels a bit "tight". Small bathroom with shower in the tub, but works well. In-room tea-making facilities and a fridge with plenty of free space. However, unfortunately the service in the restaurant is really bad. We had dinner the first night, and felt like being in "Faulty Towers". The same for the breakfast. Foodwise everything was very nice with a large selection which was checked and refilled all the time. However, due to who knows what, you had to wait to be seated, although there were many empty tables, which only needed to be cleaned. Several people were waiting all the time, but this did not make the waiters hurry more - strange and very poorly organized.

Actually one night later but we still enjoyed pleasant dreams in our comfortable, well-furnished room. Indeed, you're likely to find everything As You Like It which was the reason for our stay and 'The Q' is a convenient 10 minute walk from the theatre. Breakfast was a standard buffet but the staff in the restaurant, and throughout the hotel, were particularly friendly and helpful. Value for money, too.

My Wife and I stayed for 2 nights for a Birthday treat.

We had booked a QStar room and were very impressed by the décor, size and facilities.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and met all the expectations of a 4 Star hotel.

It is well located for the town and main tourists sites. Far enough to be quite, but near enough that it was only a 5 minutes walk.

Overall, a very enjoyable stay and one of the best hotel rooms we have had for some time.

Well done to all the staff.

Room Tip: The Q star rooms are so much larger and well appointed.

My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights at the Stratford. We had the most fantastic time. The hotel is beautifully kept and the staff are all very welcoming and happy to help. Rebecca on reception is a credit to the hotel, was very efficient and helpful.

We stayed in room 209 on the first floor. Considering this was a standard double we were amazed at the attention to detail so goodness knows what the higher standard of rooms were like! I had pre-ordered a bottle of sparkling wine to be in our room on arrival and sure enough, it was there when we arrived.

Check-in was fine, similarly so was check-out yesterday morning.

We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant in the evenings, but if the food at breakfast was anything to go by, then I'm sure if would have been lovely. The breakfast is a buffet style, so help yourself to a cooked breakfast, toast, etc. There's also fruit, yoghurt, pastries, cereal etc if you wanted that too.

It was easy enough to find a space in the car park and as this was secured with barriers, we didn't mind paying £5 per night parking.

The hotel is literally 5 minute stroll from the centre of Stratford upon Avon.

We would highly recommend this hotel and will DEFINITELY be returning.

Although the hotel is modern it is very close to the town centre, which is about 5 to 10 minutes easy walk. Just like the Q hotel I have stayed in near Cheltenham, this hotel was clean, modern and the rooms were quite stylish. We got a very good rate through a booking company, but even at normal rate, this would be a good place to stay. The car park has a small charge (£5 per night). Breakfast was self service buffet but of good quality. It was busy both weekend mornings, with a small wait to be seated and for some items of hot food to be available The beds are a bit firm, but that was good for me.
