First impressions are fabulous. From all the photos you can see this is a beautiful red brick tudor building and the public rooms have the character you would expect. However, unless you have paid top dollar don't expect the same with the bedrooms!! After a VERY long walk up a galley corridor (so long we could have been in a different postcode...) we were met with a run of the mill, and a little tired around the edges, standard modern room. From the gardens at the back of the buildings you realise that in the 60/70's someone thought it would be a good idea to add on an ugly motel style extension...You don't expect wooden beams etc but if you are going to do modern rooms they need to be modern, but in keeping with the feel of the place. Breakfast was very good and made to order rather than buffet style. This did cause a bit of a wait but it came out hot and just how you like it. However, the pastries on the buffet section were stale. We ate in town at night as there is a wide selection of fine eateries to choose from and considerably better value than the restaurant. We did treat ourselves to a night cap in the bar but make sure you brace yourself for the bill. All in all we had a great break but feel the hotel is still living on past glory rather than keeping up with similar hotels in an extremely competitive market place. There are plenty of hotels at a similar price point in Stratford that would beat this experience easily.
