My husband booked two nights here as a birthday surprise for me as I had long wanted to sample a 'Murder, Mystery' weekend. Had I known, I would not have chosen this hotel but a country house hotel, i.e. one more in keeping with the weekend theme. However, it is but a short walk from the hotel to the town centre and so it was convenient for some Christmas shopping or a look at some of the Shakespeare heritage sites. It is on a main road and was easy to find with parking at the side and rear. We found the check-in easy and were shown to our 'Executive' room which was on the ground floor in an extension overlooking the car park. Although larger than a standard room, I could see no other benefit. The room was cold, the furniture and furnishings tired and the door lock very awkward to operate. We complained and were moved to a standard room on the first floor and in the main building. This was a great improvement as the room, though small, was warm and comfortable.
This hotel seems to be comprised of separate buildings joined together and I found that there were too many open spaces so it did not really have a warm and cosy feel to it. Not all the radiators were hot and, in the room where we met for our 'Murder, Mystery' gatherings, some were stone cold. We found the food to be of a reasonable standard for this type of hotel with continental or cooked breakfast available.
Overall, I felt this hotel was ever so slightly shabby with scuffed paintwork and cheap doors. There were flights of stairs to negotiate and a bit of walking to 'our' meeting room. Not a problem for us but possibly for others.
