“Excellent -A wedding weekend made special by all the staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2010

Our daughters wedding was held at the Alveston Manor on Sunday 19th September. From the moment we checked in on the saturday the whole wedding party were looked after. Steve the general manager introduced himself then he introduced us to Nik and John who supported us during the reception. Laura our wedding co-ordinator arranged all the planning up to the wedding day. We cannot praise them highly enough, we all had a wonderful time.
The food was excellent the accommodation was first class we would recommend this venue to anyone.

The selection of this hotel was its location in Stratford upon Avon being central for all members of our family to attend our Golden Wedding anniversary. The friendly reception staff guided us to beautiful room 72.
The garden area was a nice setting for all the family to have tea and coffee.The private room with its attentive staff and an excellent meal, catered for the age group from four years to seventy four years with a night we will all remember for years to come. Thank you Mr Steve Quick and Staff for making our stay so stress free and relaxing for our Golden Wedding anniversary.

Excellent location, good parking, externally appealing, keen staff - so far so good. Unfortunately downhill after that. Our room was very dusty on all surfaces and the carpet had little curls of fluff round the edges - they don't grow overnight - and grey profiling round the furniture. The refreshment & toiletry supplies both needed replenishing. We spoke to reception - restocking and a token dusting was done whilst we were out but no vacuuming. We had an unfortunate experience in the AA Rosette restaurant, dining in when they had problems in the kitchen - our meals were so poor we were not charged, thank you.
Breakfasts were good but the tables weren't cleared regularly - we had to ask for plates to be removed and our juice glasses were still on the table as we left. Coffee took 27 minutes and 2 requests to arrive. The staff appeared to be working hard but there seemed a general lack of awareness.
Indfividual staff were charming and helpful, but there was a general lack of cohesion and overall our impression was of a faded beauty, rather living off past glories. The facilties may be 4*, the presentation and attention to detail unfortunately wasn't.

Considering there was a large group of us as a car club and a wedding in the Hotel on saturday night the service at our meal was fantastic. The manager could not have done anymore to make our stay special and all requests made beforehand had been met. Breakfast was served to the table and was of top quality. Rooms were well equipped and comfortable and parking is plentiful. All staff went the extra mile to make it a really pleasant weekend.
Only one small drawback reception could be slightly larger and have more desks to speed up check-in and check out.

I have just returned from a weekend visit to this hotel with my husband and a group of Aston Martin owners and can rate this hotel very highly. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the staff and had exclusive ability to park around the gardens infront of the hotel. Our room (in the new area), although a good walk from the reception and hotel facilities was large, clean and very quiet both Friday and Saturday nights, with a beautiful picture window onto one of the car parks and the sunset! The manager, Steve, was very interested in our Aston Martin group's stay and was very attentive throughout the visit, directing traffic as we left the hotel and keen to record the event for the hotel on our departure.
Breakfast was buffet style in the hotel restaurant with a wide choice of fruit and cereals, meats and cheeses, and hot food was cooked to order with plenty of time between courses without the feeling of being rushed. The staff were all very courteous and helpful.
We enjoyed a private dinner on Saturday night for about 40 of us, this alongside catering for a wedding in another room, and once again we had very attentive staff who didn't rush us through our meal. The food was of excellent standard and once again a great choice.
Alvaston Manor is situated within 10 minutes' walking distance of Stratford centre and an ideal location for exploring Shakespeare country and the surrounding districts. The hotel has a charming atmosphere and a great history being built in Tudor style and dating back to the 17th century
