Breakfast was very poor
near to town centre. friendly staff
The bedrooms were of a nice design, the breakfast was very good, there was plenty of free parking. Had trouble with getting sky news on tv
Excellent facilities for a weekend break - car parking especially appreciated No
Just a clean and lovely well run hotel No
Nice large rooms, good service, good food.
Breakfast was very good. Hotel was quiet and had a good night's sleep. Efficient room service. Felt like a well-run establishment. Helpful staff. Location near the centre of Stratford - good parking so could just walk from then on. Logistics all worked for our theatre trip. Room was bland, dark and a bit dated - sort of up market rep.factory. Decor of public rooms was a bit depressing - fake gothic. Again dated. Not an inviting lounge area at all.
The breakfasts have been going there for a number of years and felt that the hotel under this management had lost the personel touch in service
the hotel was very clean. staff were helpfull.and it was within waking distance of the town centre. the food was exalent
Great location for accessing attractions. Liked the ambiance of the hotel. Staff were obliging. Room was cramped (bathroom was not).Poorly equiped-tv did not work. No clock/radio. No pen. Most importantly- no space to put clothing- We had to live out of our suitcase.
I liked the "character" of the hotel and that it had air-conditioning. The room and bath was large, the bed very comfortable, and the hotel is in a great location.
Very convenient for the theatres and with on-site parking (which can be a problem in Stratford) this is a comfortable and characterful hotel which is good for a short stay. The staff are pleasant and intend to be helpful; but things can go amiss. For example a room service request was overlooked and a dinner reservation got lost between the front desk and the restaurant.
The hotel is clean and suits the character of Stratford upon Avon. The log fires are lovely! The hotel were not helpful with the problems we experienced during our stay. The breakfast was poor quality, badly served and the staff were not helpful.
Location (very central), friendly and helpful staff, character. WiFi was very accessable Room was a bit worn. No mention was made before arrival (eg at time of booking) of £10 per night charge for use of the carpark.
The friendliness of the staff. The fact we were able to book in slightly earlier than 2pm having travelled all the way from Scotland. The hum of the air conditioning unit outside our bedroom window.
wonderful, excellent for a romantic evening- four poster bed well worth it, central to stratford
Location, Food, Character Building. Being charged for car parking.
Comfortable hotel with character right in centre of town. Ideal for visiting historical houses and close to lots of restaurants.
We really enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel.The decor and furniture have been chosen for ultimate comfort and cosiness and have achieved a "home from home" feeling and yet still offer luxury. Nothing springs to mind.
The location was superb. The junior suite was well worth the extra with a separate lounge area. Having real log fires burning made it feel warm and cozy. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy a hot drink near the fire. The hotel building is old and whilst the rooms are very clean and well decorated the plumbing is old with low water pressure and about 15 minutes before very hot water reaches you. All part of the old world charm I guess.
Excellent breakfast with a lot of choice and good quality. Location was perfect for our visit. Car parking was difficult, but adequate considering the location. Checkout was very slow.
Local to attractions
Staff were very helpful
Staff extremely helpful, rooms very nice and comfortable. Excellent for the town and theatres. Excellent location and facilities
The location was very good. We could not be allocated a non-smoking room as requested. The advertsied parking facilities were inadequate thus costin an additional £15.00 for the overnight stay.
everything really, room was very well equiped (we had an executive room) and very clean and the food was gorgeous. I'm affraid my only complaint was the mattress, it wes far far to soft for my liking, it didn't look old or in poor condition or anything it was just too soft for me, it felt like i was sleeping on a banana, but i didn't complain to the hotel as i don't supose they keep spare mattresses!!! I just slept on the sofa bed which was i bit more firm.
The location Check-in staff rather vague & not particularly welcoming
the position to the town centre
Easy location, comfortable room
Close enough to the town centre without the need to drive Our room was above the bar which was noisey on the saturday night
it was right in the heart of Stratford and there were good parking facilities. All staff were very friendly the bathroom was a bit shabby
Very comfortable with modern and historic feel to different parts of hotel. Very cosy by open fire in traditional surroundings. Food well cooked and presented but menu rather limited particularly from day to day. No real problems but lack of drawer space in bedroom and shelf space in bathroom.
It was near to the theatre The room was of a poor standard with filthy net curtains. We had mould in the bathroom and wrinkles in the carpet. We had stayed at better B&B's in Stratford. This was a birthday treat for me and I was severely disappointed.
The room was a little tired and in need of redecoration.
the convenience of the hotel to the town and theatre, and also the pleasantness of the staff. although the tv was receiving digital stations, very few apart from the five main ones were available. Specifically BBC4.
Very good for sight seeing, Theatre, shopping, every thing is close to hand with in walking distance.
The room was delightfully unusual with oak beams. The hotel itself was very pleasant and ideally located. I also liked the RAF and Navy display in the lobby. Breakfast, although adequate, did not quite match the rest of my very good experience at this hotel.
Location of the hotel and the facilities Room faced noisy road and church with a clock that tolled every hour
Great room, excellent staff, great location for the town and surrounding area. Thought the en suite could have been cleaner.
the position of the hotel needed decorating
The Hotel was central to everything we wanted to see. Staff were very helpful. Food - excellent with good choice including dietary requirements. I have some mobility problems and a room was arranged for us near to lift which was great.
The warmth of the hotel (bitterly cold outside during our stay) and the lovely breakfasts. In fact, we liked eveything. There was nothing we disliked.
Lovely to be so close to the centre. With a party and prepaid afternoon tea and dinner. Afternoon tea was urns of tea and coffee and prewrapped biscuits. Not 4 star rather like a poor B&B offering! TV screen really dirty and dusty. No soap dish. Half used shampoo.Not even a post card in the drawer. All quite shabby for the price asked and not like any 4 star hotel you would find elsewhere in Europe.
Location very convenient. Quality very good and very well maintained. Is it necessary to charge customers for car parking if they are paying guests?
Close by the town and easy to walk to the main venues of the city. had a power outage which was not their fault but when that happened the lifts in morning did not work, so staying on 3rd floor was a bit of a hike with all bags if you have a wife/Girlfriend
It is in a really great location.
The Hotel was clean & tidy, rooms were a good standard. Staff very helpful, its a Holiday Inn. The Beds do take some getting use to, the pillows soft or hard are not good. Paying £10 for wifi - 1st hour is expensive. The hotel can have an issue at breakfast if everyone decends at 7.30 / 8am as they can run out of food and the tables can be full and not cleaned !!!, I waited over 10 min and when i eventually got my breakfast I sat down at a table that had not been cleaned away, full of cups and plates, throughout my breakfast nothing on my table or around me was cleaned or moved !!...other than that its a Holiday Inn and getting better
Central to the town so lovely to be able to walk in quickly. The hotel is spacious- reception is well laid out. Cleaning staff knocking on the room door at 9.a.m, particularly on Saturday morning when you are not checking out that day.. but also on Sunday..
clean rooms fresh and friendly staff yes the window did not open, it was screwed shut and when asked for a fan ( as my wife is 7 months pregnant) we did not get one.
room was overlooking the river
Yes.good location & price We were waken at 4:00 AM my a false fire alarm
Location and breakfast
Rooms were clean and large enough. Breakfast was fairly good. We had a 4 in the morning fire alarm go off and had to evacuate the hotel. That was due to an employee opening the fire exit at that time for a late arriving guest. That was quite unpleasant, and tiring.
The landlady was very friendly and very informative. She made us welcome with a nice pot of tea when we arrived. There was lots of choice for breakfast. Unfortunately, we had one of the 2 attic rooms which are very small and we wouldn't have liked to be in the room for more than one night.
the hostess was very helpful and suggested places to dine the room was very small and uncomfortble bed due to mattress lacked support
Very well looked after. Guest house very clean. Excellent breakfast.Overall very good standard. Nothing
Excellent food, delightful hostess and a very comfortable bed! Nothing to dislike at all.
Very friendly. Spotless and a lovely interior with attention to detail.
Made to feel part of the family
Very friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast
Exactly what you expect from a bed and breakfast. Very clean, comfortable room and bathroom; the shower,though in the corner of the bedroom was hot and efficient. Excellent cooked breakfast.
Welcoming. Convenient. Good value.
The local knowledge and wit of the owner. Uncomfortable and noisy bed.
The owner of the guest house was very helpful and friendly and very keen for his guests to know other guests and for us to enjoy Stratford as much as we could.
location, good hospitality toilet needed recondition
Very frindly and helfull Could not find any
Very friendly host who always introduced us to other guests.Centrally situated for theatre,shops and other activities. Over-sized wardrobe took up a lot of the room.
made to feel very welcome good facilities breakfast good standard need some plumper pillows
Pascal is a really nice host full of jokes and amusment he introduces all the guest at breakfast , nice friendly guest house with wi fi .Very close to the town centre , Hi the family room is slightly too small for our teenagers now 16/14 and I would book seperate rooms now , car parking a little tight
no dining facilities
extremely close to the RST theatre, no more than 5m walk; very quiet, free parking, great breakfast and very comfortable bedroom. waiting staff on the restaurant could be increased in numbers - or efficiency - waiting 15 minutes for the waiter to take my breakfast order, while the restaurant is half full is the only negative item to point out - the breakfast itself was fantastic.
We only stayed one night, but it was comfortable, clean, very convenient short walk to the Theater, not far from the rail station, walkable to the sights. People were friendly, and room service breakfast was right on time, so we could catch our train to London.
friendly staff, very good location.
convenient and clean
the breakfastroom and quality of breakfast No lift and long walking distances
central free carpark
quiet, calm location
This is a good hotel and is very conveniently situated for the town and for walks along the river. We have stayed here many times and it is our first choice for a hotel in Stratford. The cost of breakfast if you just want tea and toast. Not enough parking.
The location was perfect for visiting Stratford as only a short walk over the river into the town centre. The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel had a very relaxed atmosphere. The room was very clean and had everythiong we needed inclusing an iron and board already in the room. Our stay wasn't long enough! Could have done with an explanation at check in on how the plug in the sink worked as we thought our was broken!
Good location, room was well furnished and clean, an empty fridge was very useful. Didn't suffer from banging doors and creaking floorboards. Excellent car park location and easy access to the hotel from the car park that didn't appear to be locked - so no mammoth treks to have a late night cigarette. No internet, the broadband connection in my room didn't work so I had to pay £40 to use WiFi when it is free at most hotels in the area. When I got the WiFi it was a poor connection and didn't work at all for most of one night. Room key card was erratic at best - it took me around five swipes on average to get into my room.
Pleasant, comfortable with fresh continental style breakfast inc excellent fresh coffee and warm crossants.
Host was excellent.
The fact that Arden Park is non-smoking is terrific. I couldn't imagine staying in a B&B where people were constantly smoking in the common rooms. Also, the bed was incredibly comfortable, the room was large, and everything was very clean. It was very near the train station, making it super-easy to get into town, check in and drop off our stuff, and then go right on into town and start our itinerary. We will be staying there the next time we visit Stratford-upon-Avon. Breakfast is no great shakes - hard-boiled eggs, croissants with jam, and cereal - but there is fresh tea/coffee and it's perfectly fine.
Location close to Stratford made it easy to walk to sights, pubs, restaurants, etc. Breakfast did not start until 8.30 and they were unwilling to serve earlier or even leave out a simple toast and cereal for me as I had to leave at 7.30.
It was simple, very clean and comfortable
service was lovely and friendly beds were too hard
Near to train station, Room adequate in size, access to internet.. Cold breakfasts, sheet & blanket needed rather than heavy comforter.
Mark was an excellent host and the accommodations for our family of four were just perfect for our stop at Stratford Upon Avon. The location was very close to the city center and all the sites. There was a nice selection of food for breakfast and free parking at a nearby car park after checking in with Mark.
I found the host extremely welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was superb.
The breakfast room was adorable and good service and help Nothing to not like
Breakfast very good with a choice of cereals which you could help yourself to, and a choice of meat or vegetarian cooked english, more coffee, tea or toast was always offered.
Everthing was O.K. --------------------
Ideal location for access to attractions in Stratford., RSC theatre 10 mins walk, Ann Hathaway cottage 15/20 mins walk. Although only there Fri/Sat night we were allowed to leave the car there while we spent Sunday morning in Stratford On a main route into town bust during the day but quiet late at night
Good helpful and polite service.
Close to city centre. Friendly helpful manager. A clear explanation of how to find hotel car park which was at the rear of the street and only accesable from a very narrow unsigned lane would be useful in information of location.
Very relaxing and comfortable accommodation. Very convenient for seeing Stratford upon Avon.
Delightful experience. Owner very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and very nicely appointed--loved the canopy beds. A bit of a walk from train station, especially pulling bags.
clean and informal, comfortable room. close to town, friendly staff. Able to park the car. There was no privacy in the bathroom, although there was frosted glass, we overlooked the main rd, we felt a little exposed. It required a curtain at the window. Also there was no shampoo
Superb location, friendly run b&b
The hotel was full of hospitality None
