Very Convenient

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: Convenient with on-site parking (charged at £5 a night). Friendly and efficient staff.
Cons: The dining room can't cope with breakfast at busy times although the excellent staff do their best to re-set tables as soon as people have left.
Location: Stratford has lots of history and it's attractions can be found on many travel guide websites.
It only takes 10 minutes to walk to the theatre and even less to the majority of restaurants. The hotel is set back from a busy road junction and our room was extremely quiet. The main area carpets are showing signs of wear, but overall the hotel is very well decorated and clean.

Very basic, had expected more for the price

Posted Jan 23, 2017
Pros: The location was convenient
Cons: The service, and the hotel would benefit from decoration and general update, or was fairly tired
Location: The location is good and Stratford itself is beautiful with a vast choice of very good restaurants and of course the RSC
The room was quite cramped and basic. we felt it was overpriced and disappointing. Overall the hotel had a fairly tired feel

Perfect hotel in the perfect location

Posted Jan 23, 2017
We arrived 2 hours before check in time but the receptionist was only too happy to find us a room that was ready. The room was beautifully decorated and very comforting. We ate in the restaurant, the food was delicious and our waiter, Kevin, was very friendly but not overbearing. We also had breakfast in our room which was also delicious. We would definitely stay there again.

good Hotel, close to Centre

Posted Jan 9, 2017
Pros: location and comfort
Cons: reduce size of furniture to make the rooms feel a bit bigger.
Location: 10 mins walk to Centre of Stratford, we did the 'town walk' for a 2 hour walk around the town pointing out all the Shakespeare and historical places.
nice hotel walking distance to Stratford centre and river. rooms good,clean and comfortable, although the one we had seemed too 'full' as the furniture was large and dark. Breakfast was great, buffet style with everything you could think of!

Well kept hotel close to centre of Stratford

Posted Jan 3, 2017
We only stayed a night between Christmas and new year and the hotel was clean, well kept and the staff all v friendly and certainly doing their best however for a busy holiday period it was under staffed. Check in was slow, there was a wait for a breakfast table and then hot food as they struggled to keep up with demand. It didn't spoil our trip but for an expensive hotel I would not recommend.

Anniversary trip in Stratford

Posted Oct 13, 2016
Pros: Convenience for walking into town. Staff friendly.
Cons: Breakfast a bit of a shambles. Very busy having to wait for tables possibly because a wedding had taken place the previous day.
Location: Great location for seeing the historic town.
Nice quiet room a bit small and dark though. Shower worked well and the room was well stocked with tea and biscuits.

Fabulous Hotel

Posted Oct 8, 2016
We are from the United States. We have been to London for the past four days and paid a fortune for a hotel. The Stratford was better than the hotel we had in London. Wonderful place!
