“An Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 5 March 2011

We stayed here for a large conference at the end of February. It really is a superb hotel for such an event.

Check in was fast - but my it's a long way to some of the rooms from reception - some of the corridors seem endless!

Room was very good, comfortable and with an opening window. Bed was large and comfortable and bedding was clean and altogether good.
The bathroom had a poor shower that you had to hold up over the bath - not impressed with that at all. A hotel of that standard should have a proper shower.
Towels were white and quite fluffy.
The loo paper was cheap & nasty - it's little things like that which let a place down.

Room walls are thin - we discovered this at 2am when our neighbours returned and had an almighty row...until 3am :-(
Not the hotel's fault but we heard every word :-(

The hairdryer could have done with a diffuser and the tea/coffee tray with the odd biscuit.

Leisure club was very good. Plenty of coffee available throughout the hotel.

Restaurant was EXCELLENT - fabulous carvery. Breakfast was also first class.

All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Stratford. It is conveniently located and easy to find.

Frequently stay here when visiting Stratford for theatre. Staff invariably friendly and helpful and keen to ensure guests have pleasant stay. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Good public areas with plenty of seating. Range of snacks available thoughout the day. Buffet breakfasts are varied and of high quality with constant replanishment - extra items made to order. This is the hotel against which I measure others of similar standard and price and it is rarely equalled.

We came from all directions and met in the middle. Unfortunately we met here. The food was poor, particularly the bar food. Service was slow and the mangeress surly.

Thankyou for your comments and I am disappointed that your experience at the Holiday Inn was not to our usual high standard.
We pride ourselves on a great nights sleep & great food and I am thoroughly disappointed that on this occasion we failed to achieve this.
Please accept my apologies and I do hope that we can welcome you back to the Holiday Inn Stratford upon Avon where i am sure you will have a great stay.

We were on a road trip around England . . . The weather was snowy and roads reasonably icy . . . Meaning it was quite stressful to get here . . . BUT . . .
The location of this hotel was outstanding - and easy walk along the river and to all the attractions in the town. The rooms were spacious and clean - a place to relax comfortably.
The buffet dinner was well priced - and our eyes were much bigger than our bellies!! The waiting staff were very obliging, and happy to offer the children alternatives . . . Breakfast was really outstanding!
The pool and spa area was clean - and we liked the way there were dedicated times for children to use the facilities - that way they could splash and not bother anyone other than other children who also wanted to play - except for a couple of grumpy gym members who clearly hadn't read the kids' times . . .

Overall - we'd be back in a flash!

Stayed here for my birthday. The hotel is the other side of the trauin station so i'd say a good 20-25 mins walk once you know where your going. The hotel is nearer the RSC Theater. The hotel itself has that Holiday Inn look and the staff were all friendly and welcoming. We picked up a great deal and buffet breakfast was included so 'well happy'.

Rooms were spacious benough, the bed was king size massive. The only downside to our two day stay was the Heating and Vent system was quite noisey, obviously it was winter and it was about -5 at times, so it was the only criticism. Sme great scenery and would go back perhaps in summer.
