Stayed for a special treat at this hotel - in the 'Macbeth' room. Antique 4 poster bed and the most amazing room. All quirky sloping flooring and original beams. An amazing original little window within the room. (leading to a modern luxury bathroom) The hotel is very central and on a busy junction but close to all attractions and the RSC is within walking distance.
The hotel is recently refurbished and immaculate throughout. Parking is about 200 yards away - no issues with that.
It was warm, friendly and relaxing.
The staff are very well informed and are friendly - special mention of a guy called Lee who was an ever present member of staff - really helpful guy who is a font of knowledge.
Breakfast was very grand with a decent choice of freshly cooked specials underpinned by the normal buffet pastries and cereal.
Overall an excellent hotel in a fantastic location and worthy of a stay - I have no idea of the cost as this was a birthday treat and I promised not to ask.
I recommend this hotel to all - not least for the history but mostly for the warmth of welcome and comfort.
