The Arden is a high quality, hotel in the heart of Stratford upon Avon, directly over the road from the RSC. It has its own, ample parking facilities which in Stratford is defintiely a plus. We arrived close to the earliest check in time, but we were told the room wasn't quite ready yet, so they sent us to the bar with instructions to supply us with free drinks....and not just a tea or coffee. The staff handled this in a very friendly manner, providing service with a smile - as they did on any occasion when we came into contact with them.
We were only there one night, and we had not asked for anything special in terms of room, but the room (the Oak Room) was large, with a great view over the river and RSC and an exceptionally large and comfortable bed. The bathroom was modern and clean. It had no bath, but that's never an issue for me.
Breakfast was included our package, and was delicious, though I suspect I would have been a little disappointed if I'd had to rely on the contents cold buffet.
All in all, this was one of the best hotels I've stayed at and would not hestitate in recommending it, nor revisiting again. Hopefully soon!
