Unique architecture

Customer review rating 4.0/5

John M. Families - 11/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of Stratford and retains some wonderful original features - very much in keeping at the home of Shakespeare! We struggled with the aircon but not enough to spoil our stay. Dinner and breakfast provided plenty of choice and was good quality. The bar seemed sparsely stocked thought, but it was just after New Year

Well Located

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Lynne Couples - 11/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel was ideally situated close to all the shops and restaurants etc. Lots of character with plenty of seating areas. The hotel itself looks a little tired in places probably due to its age but could do with a lick of paint in places. Cracks in the bedroom ceiling. Only sparkling water available in bottles for drinking. Unable to accomodate us for evening meal in the hotel restaurant as there was a big party booked and only one chef but we found a great French restaurant called Cafe Rouge just around the corner. Parking at the NCP was subsidised through the hotel at £8.50 instead of £18.95 for 24 hours. Hotel parking limited at a cost of £15.

Very friendly and professional

It was New Years eve and was a bit quieter than expected, the reception was very helpful/friendly and we had an average meal in the hotel that was ok but not as nice as expected. (maybe staffing on this occasion). Rooms were nice, and obviously as the hotel is so old there were great features but don't expect shiny and new everywhere - clean and tidy. Would stay again and this was our second visit. Nice breakfast too.

Good location, great period features let down on covid safety

F.k. E. Couples - 06/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived 28th December for two nights. We had booked a premier room only to find that the extras we had paid for weren't there, we had to ask reception for our extras. We had to find on three occasions staff to serve us at the bar. That evening we learned that you had two Italian guest's, one of them self isolating with covid the husband in and out of communial areas and restaurant. On the evening of the 29th my wife became very unwell. The next morning after leaving the hotel we arrived home and .my wife tested positive for covid. The next morning I received from the NHS app. That on the 28th December I had been in contact with somebody with covid, the only place I had been was the hotel. Since arriving home I have also tested positive and we are currently both isolating. I have recently undergone cancer treatment, and this was supposed to be a nice relaxing break and it has been anything but.

We stayed for 3 nights over Christmas. The hotel oozes with character, we had a lovely big room with 4 poster bed, there were several log fires around the bar areas. Food was good, staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located close to the historical town centre and is also handy for pretty river walks.

ldspicer 14/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Arrived early and managed to park in one of the last spaces in the hotel car park. Gabor at reception checked us in straight away (not sure if the ALL membership helped here?). Classic room in Garrick Suite. Huge double aspect room. Thought we'd been given an upgrade. Room is very near to all the great eateries in Sheep Street and close to the river and all the other sights. Really enjoyed our stay

Dear ldspicer, Thank you for your rating and review of your stay with us. Great to see that you had a great experience and liked your room. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and hope you will do so again next time you are in the area. Kind regards Jason General Manager

slateloose22 13/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

From arriving (late) to leaving and being pleasantly surprised that the drinks in the room fridge were complimentary, everything was perfect. Staff friendly and helpful, we need a disabled bay and this was organised with a reserved sign on a VERY busy car park. Breakfast was a good selection and well cooked. Great stay and would love to return.

Dear slateloose22, Thanks for rating your stay and posting a review, it always great to get 'top marks'. Great to read that you found everything to be perfect. Thank very much for choosing to stay and i hope you will do so again next time you visit Stratford-upon-Avon. Kind regards Jason General Manager

Another great stay

siricat 07/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

This is the third time we have used this hotel. Once again, our room was clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff we came into contact with (reception and at breakfast) were all friendly and helpful. We enjoy occasional trips to this town, and this hotel is our preferred option.

Dear Robn, Thanks for your great review its always nice to get top marks, even more so from a guest who has stayed with us for the third time. Thank you for choosing to return and for you positive comments in regard to your stay and the team. We very much look forward to welcoming you the next time you visit Stratford-upon-Avon. Kind regards Jason General Manager

Not as expected for room rate

jackie54ellis 20/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Really disappointed with the standards in the bedroom. Broken lampshades. Mould on grouting joints in the bath. Wallpaper was peeling off. Furniture was dusty. Really not worth the money they charged.

Dear jackie54ellis, I am sorry that your stay was not as you expected and you felt that you did not receive value for money. That is certainly not our aim and sorry that I did not have the opportunity to apologise in person. Kind regards Jason Mayglothling General Manager
