We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at this very special, decadent and luxurious hotel. When we arrived, we received a warm welcome from Ali who advised us to leave our bags, park our car (a short stroll away) and come back in time for "Champagne Happy Hour" between 5pm and 6pm. Well, our weekend began there!!! What a superb idea. After Ali had shown us to our room (number 12) we knew this hotel was something special. The superb decor and beautiful plum carpets on the way to our room was impressive but when the door to number 12 opened - Gorgeous!!! Huge bed with crisp, clean bedding, real feather pillows and duvet. Ipod dock, hairdryer, straighteners, iron and board, tea and coffee making facilities (real milk), decanter of port and the bathroom was beautiful. Large double shower and claw bath with nice toiletries. Clothes unpacked we meandered to the bar for the Champagne Happy Hour which had a real "buzz" about it, a great atmosphere and lively. We had a table booked for dinner and I had a starter from the specials board and a main from the menu choices. Absolutely delicious. We had a nice bottle of wine to accompany, the service was excellent (thanks Henrietta), very reasonable in price and a very enjoyable evening indeed topped off with drinks in the library. Breakfast was delicious with the staff (Ryan)really personable and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Saturday night was spent watching Macbeth and then again a quiet couple of drinks upon our return in the Library. The live music on a Sunday night (Mat's birthday) was fabulous with again a very good atmosphere in the bar. All in all an excellent weekend, excellent hotel and we wish Rachel and her team every future success. Without doubt hope to stay with you again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This recently refurbished boutique hotel is housed in a 400 year old listed building in the heart of Stratford upon Avon. Located opposite Shakespeare's school, among the ancient half-timbered buildings the town is famous for and only 2 minute's walk to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. This is THE place for a pre-theatre supper - local pianists play at 5.30pm daily and the atmosphere is great. The 12 funky en-suite bedrooms vary in size, cost and view. Try for a room at the front of the building for the perfect view. Great food is served all day, through till 10pm in this buzzy neighbourhood bistro with Afternoon Tea a particular favorite. Champagne Happy Hour is every Friday at 5pm and the bar is packed with a great, upmarket local crowd. The staff make the place and nothing is too much trouble. ... more less
