Right in the Centre of TownPosted Nov 12, 2015
Pros: It was very old and had a lot of character.
Cons: The tea/coffee was very sparse and could be a bit more generous.
Location: Right in the centre of town, very close to the RSC, the river and Shakespeare's birthplace.
Whilst this hotel is right in the centre of town and you can walk easily to the theatre, shops, restaurants and attractions, the room could have been a bit cleaner and the tea/coffee were very sparse. If you are a light sleeper don't accept room 103 because it is right underneath the staircase and corridor to the floor above and you will hear everyone coming and going at all hours. On the plus side, the hotel is very old and has a lot of character and when we found we had too much light coming in from the street lights outside, the maintenance staff did make an effort to fix that for us. Also, be aware that the car parking is an extra £10 per night.

Conveniently placed for overnight visitPosted Nov 7, 2015
Pros: The staff. It also has a car park
Cons: The lighting
Location: It is only a few minutes walk from the RSC theatre, the Swan theatre and the river. It is situated on a lively street near lots of interesting shops
It was fine for what we required - a bed for the night so we could go see a play. But we would not have wanted to stay longer. Public rooms exceptionally dark and gloomy. Bedroom also, but staff kindly produced brighter lighting so we could read. Room not ready when we arrived at 2.10 pm. Breakfast OK but would have been even better if the croissants had been warmed and the tray not so ludicrously heavy. The hotel is however very conveniently placed for all the facilities of Stratford.

Fabulous historical building.Posted Nov 4, 2015
Great night in an old building, disappointed I didn't see the resident ghost! Nice town with plenty of shops and nice places to eat and visit.

Lage am Meer. Nicht weit zum Fährhafen.Posted Nov 2, 2015
Sehr gute Lage am Strand. Altes sehr edles Hotel leider der grosse Glanz etwas verblasst. Im Restaurant sehr gut gegessen. Hochzeitsfeier im Haus. Hat nicht gestört - im Gegenteil unterhaltsam zu beobachten.

nice hotel close to theatre and restaurantsPosted Oct 22, 2015
Pros: air conditioning
Cons: cost of parking
Location: Lots of restaurants coffee shops. Lots of tourist attractions
Room small but comfortable bit noisy (some sort of machine) woke us in the early hours. Parking is well over priced double the cost of the hotel across the road.

A very quaint hotel, well situated in the town centre. I had a few issues with my stay… The access card reader to my room was faulty which meant I had to try multiple times to gain access to the room or at times I was completely locked out. Several trips between my room and reception were required in order to resolve the issue. The bed in the room was appalling; I could feel every spring sticking into my back. Not what you would expect from a four star hotel. My room faced the street of the shopping strip. I was woken up around 6am each morning with the noise of rubbish removal trucks and delivery trucks. I found one staff member in particular to be very rude and dismissive to my simple request.

Good central location.Posted Sep 14, 2015
Great location, our only gripe was, we stayed in a junior sweet that was just 1 room and outside our window was a generation that was on all day and late into the night... Very noisy....😔

A weekend in StratfordPosted Aug 27, 2015 on Hotels
We had a good weekend in Stratford and lot's to do and see.. and the hotel was in a good location so we didn't have to spend much time in our room. Tea making facilities were good and lots of hot water and clean towels for baths. We didn't expect room service so was surprised when we came back in the afternoon to find the bed made and bathroom cleaned. I would have liked to have been able to open a window and get some air into the room..but this was because we had a ground floor room on the street. There was a fan in the room, but no air conditioning, so I'm glad it wasn't really hot that weekend. I had ordered a double bed which turned out to be huge but in fact it was twins put together which is really uncomfortable if you want to cuddle up in the middle. Luckily we were too tiered after our day out to worry.

Couple shorty stayPosted Aug 17, 2015 on Hotels
Ideally situated, very very central. Very old building, so don't expect everything to be ultra modern and up to date. Bathroom probably needed updating, but having said that lovely powerful shower. Our room was pretty large. Breakfast was very good
