            The staff at the reception and at breakfast, helpful and kind. The room was lovely (it was called Redwood), with a view to the theater. Everything was modern and new, we felt happy to stay at this hotel.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Staff were very welcoming and friendly, we felt that nothing was too much bother.

            The room we had was fine but the desk was a desk and not a dressing table I.E. there was no mirror provided near an electric socket for hair drying etc, The tea and coffee supplies were a bit mean just 2 t-bags and only cafetierre coffee, instant as well would have been good (although I think if we had asked we would have been provided with more) These are very minor points as overall the room was very good.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The location of the hotel is excellent. We went to Stratford to visit the new RSC theatres which are literally across the street from the hotel. The river is a stone’s throw away and there are excellent easy walks along the river banks. The town centre is a 2 minute stroll, the hotel has excellent car parking; the location simply could not be bettered. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and polite. Housekeeping was outstanding; the cleanliness, comfort and room decor were all excellent and contributed to making our stay very enjoyable and, even, memorable.

            We felt that the breakfast, both the quality and presentation of the food and the waiting service was very variable. We had one mediocre day, one very poor day and one good day! Given the cost of our stay, we would have expected better. The rather average restaurant service in the mornings also put us off booking dinner, although we had originally intended to eat at the hotel on at least two evenings.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            A hotel in a great location, with great character and super friendly staff. I stayed in the Apple suite which I loved. I travel a lot on business and this hotel stands out. They have some interesting events planned, and if nothing else I would like to return to do an rsc play with dinner. Have not done Stratford before and found it a delight.

            At 24c outside, the room was hot although the supplied fan made it bearable. No aircon allowed as a listed building, but locking the windows down to a 6" gap didn't help (take a screwdriver ;-) ). The brasserie was a great venue (champagne on the terrace yum), but on our evening (a sunday), the menu didn't excite and was expensive for what it was. However, previous menus looked good.

            From the time we passed through the hotel doors untill we left, my friend & i had a wonderfull time. We went to relax & get away for a ladies only break & will be going back as soon as we can find the time. We go quite often for a day out & always have afternoon tea at the Arden. The food & service is always excellent as are the staff, who are extremely friendly & helpfull. It's like a home from home.x

            Great location, lovely food. Fabulous decor, very clean.

            The room could have been bit bigger as it was a deluxe, the bed wasnt really comfortable

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were upgraded on arrival and a birthday card had been placed in the room for my wife. The hotel was refurbished about a year ago and it has been finished very well. Our room was very comfortable. We took the option of breakfast in our room and it was of a high standard. Everything was as advertised, it bettered our expectations. We had booked seats at the rsc and the hotl's location could not be better. Free car parking was a bonus.

            Entrance to car park is a little hard to find but this is an extremely minor point.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The room comfort and the staff were very helpful. The location is really close to the town centre and the local attractions.

            You could hear people in the other rooms. Sounded like a herd of Elephants going up the stairs and around their room.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            We were met in the car park on arrival by the receptionist, staff were great. Roommwas very comfortable

          • Couple
            9.2

            Wonderful place with an amazing location right across from the rsc. Convenient to walking throughout Stratford, too. Staff was brilliant and made our first anniversary trip to the uk special.

          • Couple
            9.2

            The hotel itself is very attractive and in a gorgeous part of the town, by the river and the Royal Shakespeare Company! Breakfast on the veranda in the sunshine was stunning. The room was gorgeous and very comfortable. Nice touch that they also had a selection of DVDs to choose from. The town itself is not a great spot so it was nice to have a special hotel to return to.

            The service at the bar. We did not eat there so cannot comment on food. However, we had a couple cocktails and firstly, the bar staff weren't too sure of how to make them. When they did find out, it took so long, I ordered two rounds to save me going up again, but this took an exceptionally long time.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The location and setting.

            The first night was spent in a lovely room however we were close to the kitchen ventilation and the extraction fan kept us awake.
