Came here on December 9th. Spent a lot of time waiting for the lift. If you have all the time in the world and do not mind waiting endlessly for a lift this will be ideal for you. After letting a member of staff know how long we had been waiting and how often it had happened , he actually got really annoyed and told us we will just have to wait and what is he supposed to do ‘and it is what it is’ then actually turned his back and walked with his hand on his hip like a diva. You may want to train your staff that if anyone is making a valid comment it is not a personal insult it needs addressing. I did speak to a lady there who actually apologised on his behalf. Seems like other staff are aware of him.This upset me so much that it ruined my stay. What a horrible individual you have working for you

First stay in a HIE, but not my last. I was impressed with all aspects of my stay, except lack of face coverings by guests and staff on check in(after 2230 on a Thursday night). I was quickly given my room which was fantastic. Loads of features and facilities which other budget holidays no longer have. All staff were helpful and nice. Breakfast was fabulous considering Covid and its included in your room. I will return and use IHG a lot more, very pleased and recommended.

Stayed here 2 nights and the staff were fantastic! Whole hotel was amazing. Breakfast was lovely, hot and served by staff everyday plenty of choice, even tho option for grab and go bag and especially liked the bamboo compost able cutlery!! Fab for the environment and a great idea for tackling cleanliness in the current pandemic. Hotel was amazingly clean and staff couldn’t be more helpful! I work in a 4* hotel in Kent and honestly this hotel was better than ours! Beds comfy, room good size and all amenities available. Even have signs in the room to inform you of amenities available at reception like toothpaste which we forgot! Really could t fault the stay at all, would definitely stay again

Warm welcome; comfortable, spacious and quiet room overlooking central Stratford. It’s a building site out the back currently, but the noise insulation is pretty good, and blackout curtains good. Bathroom also has bath, which is an unusually pleasure in a new(ish) hotel! Ordered late room service - prompt and courteous delivery, and food all good. Would certainly recommend this establishment.
