              The hotel is a beautiful old building with much character and grace. It is a very comfortable hotel and the staff is very friendly.

              Terrace garden bar, breakfast was good, good location, friendly efficient staff

              Bedroom tv too small and bad reception, check in wait too long due to not enough staff,

            • Couple
              7.0

              The hotel had a central location which was close to theatres and restaurants. Parking at the hotel was limited but we parked at the local NCP which there was a deal on with the hotel.

              Unfortunately, the double bed was actually two single beds pushed together with separate single duvets - bit odd! But they were comfy.

              6.6

              I stayed in room 411 on the second floor of the Garrick wing the room was the most spacious i have ever seen in any hotel,the outlook isnt exactly great but it didnt distract from the ambiance,breakfast was very nice and all well cooked. I would use this hotel again.

              There was 4 cracked floor tiles on the bathroom floor, staff acted in a more professional manner so appeared a bit offish, a smile would be appropriate here, also the charge for the car park.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Everyone from the reception to restaurant and bar staff were most helpful. The breakfast buffet was superb; the room had lots of genuine character and was both clean and comfortable. The position of the hotel is ideal for theatre visits and handy for the railway station (just 10 mins) and all other amenities.

              Everything was first class.

            • Single

              WiFi available and included in room price should be mandatory in 2010.

              9.2

              Great location in Stratford, easy walking to shops, parks, and RSC. Beautiful tudor facade at front of hotel, though most of the room are in newer wings built on at the back.

              Parking is limited and costs 10 pound per night.

              Rooms not as expected from internet site pictures, room very old fashioned and in need of updating which is about to start aparently, and the bistro restaurant was extremely disappointing

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              The Hotel exterior and interior, rooms are good size and comfortable, staff are fab however I've not tried the food other than breakfast, which was fine. All staff very polite and helpful.

              The rooms at the front were noisy, even with the windows shut . Parking too limited and must surely effect hotels overall rating plus paying £10 per night for the privilege is steep. One small point - the TV in our room was barely a portable - need to upgrade the telly's to 21st century design! These are fairly minor issues but do result in the 'good' rather than 'excellent' rating.

            • Couple
              9.6

              Very central. A lovely traditional hotel. Great breakfast buffet. Staff helpful and welcoming. Bed a little hard for my liking but room spacious and well appointed. Noise from something sounding like a generator or maybe water tank as mentioned in previous review that was irritating at night but not enough to request room change. Would definitely stay again. Had a great stay.

            • Couple
              7.8

              At £62 this hotel is value for money, but the full price of £180 is just plain silly.

              The restaurant was a bit stuffy, with little atmosphere. Fortunately, there are a good selection of restaurants within 5 minutes walk.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was central to main attractions in Stratford. Excellent value for money. Although we were unable to park in the hotel car park we were given a voucher to park in an NCP car park and this saved us money

              We had problems operating the heating in the bedroom and as a result the room seemed cooler than we would have prefered. We also experienced draughts in the restaurant at breakfast which were acceptable given the age of the hotel. Some fresh paint would give the bedroom a face lift.
