      We stayed for one night only as this was for a family celebration. We have come to rely on the standard of cleanliness at Premier Inns but this was exceptional because of the extremely pleasant and well trained staff, Our welcome and check in procedure by Valeron was faultless. The breakfast had good choices and we were well satisfied. top marks yet again for a pleasant short stay.

      This is a fantastic premier inn, the staff are very very helpful and actually DO care about their guests, from the manager to the cleaning lady. It has some rooms overlooking the canal and has seating area outside where you can while away the time, very peaceful area. It is also close to town centre where there are many attractions to visit. The meals in the attached restaurant are so delicious we ate there the two nights we stayed. The rooms are very spacious and although you cannot open bedroom windows a quick blast of the air con solves the problem. The bathroom was also very roomy and clean.

      Stayed at Premier Inn Stratford Upon Avon for 2 nights.
      Have to say it was excellent.
      As other reviewers have said the car parking is not so good but-you don't sleep in the car do you so I guess the short walk is not so bad. It is situated next to the canal so its quite pleasant.
      Our room was on third floor--304.
      We had spoken to hotel just after we booked and asked for a canal facing room. It didn't disappoint. We looked out over the canal. The lock gates were almost under our window.
      It was lovely to watch the barges coming through the lock.
      Room was clean, fresh and tidy.
      Bathroom was super clean with an enormous bath.
      Plenty of hanging space for clothes and one large drawer. Ample storage for a short stay.
      New flat screen TV that you can tilt-this made viewing it from the bath quite easy!
      Reception staff at check in were very friendly. efficient and helpful.
      Room was very quiet and we did not hear any traffic noise at all.
      bed was exceedingly comfortable-as were the pillows.
      Car park is £3.00 per night-not really expensive in the 'grand scheme' is it?
      We did not eat in the restaurant so cant comment on the foo but we did speak to some other guests who did and they gave us very good reports of it.
      The hotel is only a short walk from a retail park which has several of the High Street names-Matalan, Next, New look-& several others.
      It is only a shot drive into Stratford where parking is very good-we didn't have any problems at all with parking.
      We did several visits during our stay-Cirencester, Stow on the Wold, Worcester, and others.
      This is such a lovely part of the country and we cant wait to go back.
      Would we stay at this Premier Inn again--Definitely-without a doubt.
      As I have said in my previous reviews-this is just OUR opinion as we found it.
      I am certain other contributors may have differing ideas from us but that's life isn't it.
      There is no such thing as 'one fits all' when it comes to hotel accommodation is there?

      Room Tip: Without a doubt ask for canal facing room-we watched barges come through the lock, swans and ducks from our window-lovely

      This was our second visit to the Stratford Waterways Premier Inn, and we enjoyed it even more than last time.

      We stayed for 2 nights and had a first floor room overlooking the canal lock. The room was spotless and very comfortable.

      From check-in onwards the staff were without exception cheerful, efficient, smart and could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Hutch in the Thyme restaurant stood out in particular, calling us by name and going the extra mile to make our meals a pleasure. We ate in the hotel on both evenings, and the food was good and reasonably priced. The restaurant is small, but if you time breakfast to avoid the 9.00 rush there is no need to wait, and the buffet is as fresh at 10.30 as it is at 7.30.

      The car park is long and narrow, and if you arrive late as we did you have a 200+ yard walk to the entrance, but once people checked out the next morning we were able to move the car to within 10 yards of reception. At £3 per day it is good value.

      Waterways may be further from the river and Bancroft Basin than the sister Premier Inn Stratford Central, but is probably closer to Henley Street and benefits from having parking and its own restaurant in-house rather than a neighbouring TableTable. Stratford is a delightful town only 2 hours drive away from us, and ideal for a weekend break. We will certainly go back, but only when we can book into the Waterways!

      Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the canal.
