Stratford Manor Hotel
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The room was lovely, with plenty of space. The bar was a bit bleak, although the staff were friendly. Unfortunately the breakfast let everything down - all the hot food was dried up and the eggs were hard. I had to ask the waiter to remove the eggs benedict from the display (which he did eventually) and make some fresh, which in fairness turned out to be quite good. There was a long wait for tea and coffee. The overall display was very uninspiring and none of our party (there were eight of us) was impressed. This was not a 4 star hotel breakfast.

Room Tip: Don't accidentally get a disabled room - the larger bathroom reduces the size of the bedroom.

We stayed there with our 6 year old twins, they made extra beds up in the room for them which were perfect. The room was lovely and the staff particularly helpful. The newly refurbished spa was very nice and my children really enjoyed the swimming pool. The breakfast was delicious and their was a good range of foods and I particularly enjoyed the breakfast specials, however we did not eat in the restaurant in the evening. There was plenty of free parking and only a 5 minute drive to the centre of Stratford upon Avon. All in all a nice weekend even though the English weather let us down.

Room Tip: I think they are all very similar however the summer and Autumn wings are nearest the restaurant and...

Dear Cajgirl
Thank you for your review on Stratford Manor. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Apologies for the weather, we did order some sunshine in for your visit, but unfortunately they were unable to deliver in time. I am pleased to hear that the little ones enjoyed the pool, and hope you found it relaxing as well.

. Had a lovely 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. The service from every member of staff was impeccable - especially from the reception staff. The swimming pool was lovely, the young man at the pool reception was really friendly and informative. The restaurant staff were fab making a real fuss of my 2 year old! The breakfast was great with everything you would expect from this type of hotel-hot breakfast, cereals, fruit, bread, pastries etc & extras which could be ordered separately. The rooms are spotless & spacious. The hotel is a great base for Stratford Upon Avon & exploring the Cotswolds. This was my 2nd visit to the hotel and I will be returning time after time & wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Keep up the good work! :)

Stayed at this hotel for one night in early December - service was excellent, and the room was immaculate. Would definitely stay again. There was a very reasonably priced taxi service into Stratford which was brilliant for the theatre.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for the upgraded rooms!

Dear Lisa S
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. As you mention we are well located for Stratford upon Avon, only a few miles down the road, and full of Shakespeare history. Warwick Castle is also very close, only a short taxi ride for a full knights day out, jousting and all.

Five of us stayed here this Christmas for the residential break and every member of staff were very friendly and welcoming.
The food was perfect Restaurant supervisor Vassili and Tony a waiter were always checking that every thing was satisfactory which of course it was.
Vassili and Mark organized a race night which caused a laugh as did a game of Bingo.
The disco in the evening was very good also.
We all enjoyed our Christmas very much and will be returning next year. With our rocket balloons and party poppers

As soon as we heard our works Christmas Party was booked at the Stratford Manor Hotel we decided to stay there overnight.
The booking was painless through the Q Hotels central booking line and we got a small discount as 'Party guests' bring the price down to £80 bed and breakfast room rate for the night of the 14th December.
We arrived late afternoon and check-in was very efficient and the staff friendly. The room was on the lower ground floor and was clean and functional but obviously well used. When we got in the room it was a bit cold but the radiator, put on full heat soon had the temperature up where my wife needs it...However getting to the room was down a corridor which obviously has emergency exits directly to the outside and it was very cold!
Our party night, which was organised by the hotel was excellent and the staff were very attentive. The food, which in my case was ham hock terrine, Christmas dinner and Christmas pudding was very good considering it was mass catering and piping hot.
The only criticism of the night was the price of the drinks, which were definitely at the high end...with a Vodka and Red Bull (The choice of many of the party goers) at about £9. Although when we had a cup of tea a pint of larger and two bags of crisps in the bar, late afternoon it was about the same price! To be fair the drink prices were made available before the event so this was a known factor.
We had a great night and slept well in our room, which was quiet and comfortable.
In the morning we enjoyed a buffet breakfast and there was an excellent selection of cooked 'full English' food, pastries, cereals and a great selection of juices.
In Summary, we had a comfortable stay at the Stratford Manor at a reasonable bed and breakfast price, and would recommend it for an overnight stay if looking for a quiet and comfortable location on the outskirts of Stratford Upon Avon.

We joined friends for the christmas package, arriving on the 23rd Dec and sadly leaving on the 27th Dec. The hotel is modern and purpose built set in spacious grounds but on a slope which has meant having steps up to reception and bedroom corridors on different,levels ,not all serviced by a lift.However the front of house staff are aware of this and are most helpfull in giving assistance if required. Through out our stay we found the hotel provided excellent accomodation and services,and all of the staff were very attentive and friendly, nothing seemed to much trouble. The food was excellent at all times. The entertainment was hosted by various members of staff, all good fun made memorable for both the things that went well and those maybe not so well ( longest game of bingo ever! ) still making all of the guests smile !
We would highly recommend.
