“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Stayed overnight prior to visit to NEC. Hotel had a comfortable feel, and was clean. Staff very pleasant & nothing seemed too much trouble. Only disappointment was that there was only Continental breakfast available, otherwise no complaints foodwise. Dined in the Restaurant & we both had the steak special. Will have it again when we return.
The bedroom was a good size & the beds were comfortable. Once you got used to the creaking floorboards, it was OK.
Will be visiting again.

Very pleasant hotel, nice food, enjoyable atmosphere friendly and helpful staff. Good location for Stratford upon Avon (about20mins). Only down side was; bar closed on Sunday evening at 6pm. But saying that, would definitely stay here again.

We made a last minute booking at a bargain rate (£28 including a full english breakfast!) and had a lovely stay. Room was really nice. Breakfast was lovely, as was the evening meal we had in the restaurant. Will be on the lookout for more offers for this hotel, although the usual rate of £55 is a reasonable price. Very impressed!

Meal arranged with family members an normally go to The Why Not when in this part of the world - unfortunately this had recently closed so, after reading reviews for Throckmorton Arms , thought we would try.
It was just ok , the best part of was the pudding .
Amongst our party we had starters of soup (good ) pate (ok) satay skewer(just one ) which was garnished with an 'Asian salad' - this consisted of julienne of carrot , cabbage and a few beansprouts . the others had fishcakes which were awful, my daughter refused to eat them and she loves fishcakes.
Main meals (fish and chips , burger, chilli , sausage and mash) were marginally better but the chilli lacked taste , in fact I couldn't taste any chilli..
The mash was lumpy and the sauasages undercooked.
Puddings (choc nut brownie and choc cheescake surprise ) were the best part of the meal , but didn't make up for the lacklustre performance of the rest of the meal.
Waitresses efficient but not friendly at all , don't even think we got a smile .
We didn't complain because this was a meal that a member of our party had booked and was paying for so we didn't wan't to embarass him - he seemed ok with his meal (perhaps he was just being kind too )

All in all , disappointed and won't be going back again.

Had a lovely week end. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean with pleasant decor. The staff were helpful and friendly. We ate both nights in the restaurant and we were not disappointed as the food was superb and reasonably priced. Cooked breakfast cooked to order and very good. We will certainly be returning and will recommend to our friends and family.
Good location.
