We have stayed in Stratford regularly for many years and decided to try the newly re furbed Arden.
Initially shown to a room we found disappointing , small, hot and potentially noisy . We asked to change and were shown to another slightly larger slightly cooler room. The room was nice but a bit corporate , bathroom was lovely >
The bed was fabulous, gorgeous thick white sheets and very comfy. The corridors and some rooms were unbearably hot and unpleasant because of this , discussion with reception did not really explain this , this needs addressing. Breakfast and dinner was ok but not special the service in the restaurant was not as calm and invisible as I would have liked , shortage of staff produced obvious stress.
Obviously great setting opposite the theatre , however on this sunny wend it was hard to get a table on the terrace to have a drink , not good when you are resident. The hotel is top dollar but misses on several counts, having said that probably the best Stratford has for it's captive audience currently.
