    Just across the street from the Royal Shakespeare Company theater. Also conveint to other Stratford-on-Avon attractions. Excellent food, very competent and professional staff. Free parking adjacent to hotel.

    Some rooms might be difficult to access for elderly or disabled. Be sure to mention any such problems when making reservation.

    the rooms were completed to an exceptional standard. the members of staff were all lovely and as helpful as they could be. you were able to get a very good nights sleep with hearing little noise from other members. although it isn't cheap its worth every penny.

    My room was beautiful, lovely staff and excellent position overlooking the Avon. I could have happily stayed there for a month. The only thing I missed was a bath, just a shower, but not much to complain about. .

    Just walked over the other side of a small road with not too much traffic to the Royal Shakespeare theatres and river side. Lovely. Shopping streets are near too. When staff saw my amount of luggage they upgraded us to a larger room! Our suite had both a shower and a bath.. Excellent, .

    We like the location and the fact it had a good car park, as we have found it very difficult to park in the town. We have family that have recently moved to Stratford so we would definately stay again.

    Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were always ready to help. Hotel close to all amenities within the town centre.

    We found that our hotel room and bathroom were far too hot, even altering the radiator the heat from the bathroom radiator seeped into the room. and although we could open the window as we were on the ground floor we thought having it open may create a security problem. However, this is our personal view and not one necessarily shared by all..

    We only stayed the night but we were made so very welcome from the start with a complimentary room upgrade. It was very relaxed and informal yet run with efficiency & professionalism. A special mention to the restaurant/bar manager for taking care of us pre & post theatre dinner.
