An enjoyable overnight followed by Sunday lunch. Excellent rooms and staff who were all happy to help with any requirements. A Riverside location next to the theatre and in easy walking distance of attractions and shops. We are already planning a return visit.

Highly recommended
This is our second time to stay at this hotel, and it is extremely well located right in the centre of Stratford, within walking distance to any direction of attractions. The service is very good, and the room are very comfortable. Good breakfast and good dinner.

Fair 4.0
Great location. We got upgraded and stayed there for one night, however there was no hot water in our room. We asked for it to be looked at, they tried but it wasn’t fixed. On checking out of the hotel I reminded them of the issue but there was no apology.

Stay here when in Stratford-upon-Avon
We had a lovely stay at The Arden Hotel - beautiful hotel in a good position on the river and very friendly staff. It was my Birthday, but I didn't tell them until we arrived at the hotel. We had a bottle of wine in the room, then there was a knock at the door and they gave me a box of Hamilton handmade chocolates and a birthday card. Thank you so much to the staff at the hotel, especially in Reception - it is the extra touches that made our stay special. They also phoned the room to make sure that everything was okay with the room, which it was. Breakfast was also really good, sitting in lovely surroundings overlooking the river. Will definitely stay here again when in Stratford.
