There are several important notes to take when booking this hotel. Location - far from the city. Service and food quality - average. Separate hot and cold water taps
First, the hotel looks nice on the outside with a big garden and many parking places. When you enter though it reminds of a Holiday Inn.
Now back to the main points. Going to Stratford-upon-Avon one would like to visit the city. This is almost impossible when staying in this hotel as you have to wait between 25 and 40 minutes for a taxi to come and then spend another 20 or 30 minutes to get to the city centre.
Again due to the location, I ate lunch/dinner at the hotel bar. 1) The waiting time to order was quite long having in mind the bar had only a few customers each time I visited. 2) The food was OK but not as tasty as one would expect for the prices.
And finally, even if wanting to keep the "ancient" look of the hotel, I find it quite frustrating when the hot and cold water taps are separate and to clean your face you have to go from the cold tap to the hot one in order to get warm water. The shower also looked like in need for a polish.
So overall it was a mixed experience.
And to finish on a positive note, I think the place would be really great for a party or a family event that would have people entertained within the hotel premises at all times.
