Reviewed 11 May 2013

Superb value for money, very friendly and welcoming staff. Excellent room with quality toiletries, chocolates etc.. Only 5 mins walk from the Theatre. We had a very enjoyable pre theatre dinner, they even kept my cheese board aside until we returned from the theatre - what a selection of cheeses! Relaxed friendly atmosphere we would highly recommend it and we certainly intend returning!

We have just returned from the most amazing mini break at this treat of a hotel. We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith after reading great reviews online. It did not disappoint and was the perfect way to celebrate our first anniversary of marriage. We had been upgraded to one of the best bedrooms and found a full bottle (not the half promised on the Mr and Mrs Smith website) of chilled champagne waiting for us. The bedroom was stunning and we loved the thoughtful extras such as the high end toiletries, tea pigs tea and decanter of port. You can't help but relax in this this place. The staff are chilled out and friendly yet still delivering a very high standard of service.

The restaurant/bar area were a highlight and we enjoyed both lunch and dinner in these comfortable surrounds. In the evening there was live music and we very much enjoyed having a sing song/dance in the bar with the friendly locals. We will be coming back as soon as we can!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the quiet rooms if you don't want to be kept awake by the noise in the bar.

Our group returned here for a dinner in the library enjoying their fixed price table d'hote group menu-a choice of 4 starters, 6 main, 5 pudds and a delicious cheese platter.
Good house wine,first class food and friendly service-top notch.
Highly recommended with 5 big stars for their every-so efficient front desk and administration-everything we asked for was quickly agreed and confirmed the same day.
Whoever is responsible for staff recruitment and training should run the Civil Service !!

Stayed for three nights in April 2013. Stayed in Bedroom 3 (the one in the main photo). The staff were incredibly nice, knowledgeable of the local area and always willing to help out with any problems. The restaurant and bar downstairs are brilliant and the restaurant is well-worth a reservation.
Slight downside is there is no on-site parking, but there is a discounted parking about 5 minutes round the corner.
It's worth mentioning that the hotel is probably better suited to young couples who enjoy a little noise. As the rooms are above the bar there is a little bit of noise, and I wouldn't take a family there. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a getaway to Stratford for a long weekend

Room Tip: Probably advise against Bedroom 1 as it's on the ground floor directly next to the bar. Suspect...

My Wife and I stayed for two nights in February to celibrate my 50th birthday. As soon as we set foot in the Hotel we were warmly greeted and helped with our luggage to our room.
The rooms are very well appointed and have nice little touches like shortbread and a small decanter of port free of charge.
The food in the bar and dining room was very well cooked and presented.
We will definately be visiting again.

Had a fantastic stay at this lovely small hotel. From the moment we pulled up outside to leaving the next day we were treated like family.

Huge bed, huge bathroom with great products, fantastic, 10 out of 10..

Too many little extras in the room to mention but the finishing touch of port and cookies was the icing on the cake.

Fantastic staff, young, British and very keen to look after you.

Had a wonderful evening meal in the restaurant and breakfast was terrific.

Super location near to shops, bars, the gorgeous River Avon and RSC Theatre are just a short stroll away.

Felt thoroughly spoilt after 24 hours in this sumptuous hotel. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rain shower or tub? You need to specify.

A nicely decorated hotel which is ideal for a stop over in Stratford-upon-Avon.

We would definitely stop there again if we're passing through in the future.

Breakfast was very tasty with a good choice.

The bar on arrival also looked very busy and buzzy.

Overall a good atmosphere.
