First time I have been to Stratford and I couldn t have chosen a better hotel. The location was perfect and the quality of the rooms was excellent. Nice welcome on arrival. Had a fabulous evening meal and the selection for breakfast was fantastic.

Rather disappointing

AH, Lancashire, stayed: August 2019

Although we were left chocolates in our room for my friends birthday this is where I feel the customer service ended. The staff didn t seem to know what package we were on - our welcome drink wasn t provided to us until we asked even though I had sent a specific email. The restaurant staff weren t very helpful or knowledgeable- we changed our reservation from 8 to 8.30 wouldn t have done this if we d known it closed at 9 - very rushed and spoilt our evening. Reception staff not very helpful when requesting to find our gin tasting - wasn t informed of code to get out of car park so had to park car and return to reception- basic things really. Would not choose to return - a very disappointing experience- such a pity as it was a special occasion.

Only one complaint . At breakfast my cooked breakfast was served to me while I was still eating my cereal. . I think that the staff should have given us time to finish one thing before serving another . My husband was halfway through his cooked breakfast before I started mine . It all felt a little rushed Tea & coffee also served at the start of meal so had gone cold before we had finished . The evening meal was totally different. . Very relaxed and waiters very helpful . I think our waiter was Emile . He was very attentive & very helpful .

To Sleep, Perchance to Dream ....

David G, Derbyshire, stayed: July 2019

We booked a Special Offer for two nights, in a Superior Room with Breakfast and a 50 allowance (per couple) for an evening meal. We also had tickets to visit any 3 of 5 Shakespeare related houses.

The hotel was easy to find, had good secure parking and we were warmly received. Our room was called Magnolia and looked out onto a side street where (unfortunately) building work was being undertaken. However it was not noisy or dusty and didn't disturb us at all.

The room was warm and the Air Con would not move below 18 deg and so the room was always too warm! I would not describe the room as 'Superior'. Yes it had dressing gowns and six pillows and 4 cushions on the bed - don't know what we are supposed to do with them at night - but it wasn't big or indeed overly comfortable. It was adequate.

Location of the hotel is superb, in the centre of town, RSC Theatre opposite and the River Avon over the road. The City Tour Bus stops outside the hotel as well. Brilliant location and a pretty hotel.

The Breakfast was very good. Plenty of choice and the cooked breakfast was a great choice. Dinner was equally good, nothing fancy but everything cooked and presented very well.

We had an issue with a curtain track that was falling down and hanging on by a single bracket. It wouldn't close properly and so let in early morning light from about 04.00. The housekeeper was very aware of it and although we reported it to Reception it wasn't dealt with and nobody gave us an explanation why.

Apart from that it was a very satisfactory stay and we would heartily recommend The Arden Hotel.

Stratford upon Avon is a lovely place to visit and the hotel just adds to the enjoyment.

Lovely Arden Hotel in Stratford

RW, Northamptonshire, stayed: June 2019

We chose the Arden for a two-night stay with another couple and found it to be in a very central location opposite the Theatre and very close to the Avon riverside. The town centre is two minutes walk away and full of good pubs and shops (not just the usual national chains) and the locals are very friendly and welcoming.

The hotel is charming, with clean rooms and very comfortable beds, and has a an unusual restaurant where absolutely everything is cooked fresh per order. This can mean a somewhat slower service than normal but is well worth the wait for their excellent food and in great variety.

We shall definitely be returning.

Shakespeare trip

AA, West Yorkshire, stayed: May 2019

The Arden Hotel is in a perfect position for everything that Stratford has to offer being opposite the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the river and in close proximity to cafes, shops and the Shakespeare houses. There is also secure parking and a lovely garden where visitors can relax with a drink. The room had views of the garden, all the meals in the restaurant were excellent and the staff very helpful and polite. Highly recommended
