Overnight for the RSC
A very good hotel, the staff were excellent, engaging and highly professional. Our room was beginning to show the need for some refurbishment but was clean with a very comfortable bed: Parking was somewhat problematic due to the Christmas lunches but the staff made room for us. Overall a very enjoyable stay

Good value in the winter
This is a very well located hotel close to the town centre, the river and the RSC Theatre. The room was comfortable and well equipped. Decor is noticeably fading and the bathroom showed signs of age with rusting metal and mould on the grouting. The common areas also show wear and tear. I enjoyed my cooked breakfast but the continental selection was very limited for a hotel of this type. The butter was served rock hard and difficult to spread on the toast. The restaurant was very cold in the morning and we had to go back to our room for sweaters. Service in the bar and restaurant was attentive and friendly. All in all we enjoyed the stay and it is good value at this time of year

Excellent hôtel with perfect location
Beautiful hotel looking over the Avon and almost opposite the RSC theatre. Stayed in the Oak bedroom which was very nice. The staff were exceptionally helpful and just couldn’t do enough for you. I would highly recommend and will definitely be staying there again. Excellent location for thé town of Stratford and the Swan theatre.

Great Location and Service
Lovely hotel, staff all very nice and very helpful. Great location. Car parking good and secure, I'd get directions to the car park before you arrive, we couldn't find the entrance! The receptionist came to the rescue and provided directions, Breakfast was plentiful, we had the full english. Dinner was a little disappointing, I had steak, it wasn't very nice but the staff did all they could to make amends and we were happy when we left. All in all we had a great stay and would stay again.

The staff at this hotel were great, they were friendly and helpful throughout without being obsequious. The restaurant manager appeared attentive and genuinely interested in all his guests and was thorough in his attention to detail. Certain aspects of the Hotel appear a little tired and a splash of decoration would not go amiss in some places but this did not spoil our stay. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice. Looking forward to visiting again. Please make no drastic changes.
