“Lovely Hotel”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

We stayed here for just the one night and vowed immediately to return. Check in was painless, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and smart. You can judge a hotel best when it's really busy and the staff are pushed. It was busy, with many guests travelling on to the Cheltenham Festival, but it made no difference, especially at breakfast, where coffee was served immediately, and tables cleared without delay.

Breakfast was the standard buffet type and, to their credit, all the items were quickly replenished before running out. Couldn't fault it and the fresh fruit was excellent.

The bar was comfortable and overall the Sratford seemed to generate a feeling of well being. It's also well located, next door to the train station and a gentle stroll into the town centre.

Just one minor criticism, nowhere near enough to compromise my rating, is that the hotel literature refers to free wi-fi throughout. We couldn't get it in our room and were told by reception that some rooms don't have a strong enough signal.

Room Tip: If you need wi-fi, ask for a room where it is available.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at The Stratford. With regards to the wifi, currently we offer complimentary hard wire in the bedroom and wifi in the public areas, there are some rooms that can pick up the signal as the team mentioned and I am sorry this wasn't explained more clearly. We are however installing wifi to the bedrooms from 22nd April 2012 so I am sure that when you return you will find no issues with regards to this. We hope to see you soon.

We stayed at the Statford for a weekend break with some friends.In my humble opinion it is one of the best hotels we have stayed in.Helpfull staff, Large rooms with comfy bed and great breakfast.My only bugbare is one it shares now with alot of hotels is the stupid toast machine.Hotels PLEASE bring toast to tables as it used to be. Would get rid of the queues at
the dammed machine and stop the people hogging it as if toast was a novelty.
Location could not be better as it is only a two minute walk into town,and the open topped bus stops outside if you want to do the tour.

Excellent stay for 3 nights for a recent conference. Bedroom/bathroom facilities were spotless and all staff were helpful without hesitation.

Room Tip: You cannot go wrong - butperhaps ask for a room with a sceneric outlook.

Just come back from The Stratford. It was absolutely super from start to finish. I went for the weekend with a relative so plumped for a regular twin room. There was nothing regular about it. Roomy, big twin beds, lovely decor, plenty of hanging space and a nice bathroom.
The reception staff were helpful, even lending us a guidebook for the weekend so we could explore the delights of Stratford.
Breakfast was great and I even got my healthy option of poached eggs on toast.
The location is great too - less than ten mins to the centre but plenty of local restaurants near by even if you didn't want to venture that far.
All in all, a great value lovely hotel.
We'll be back.

I have stayed in other Q Hotels - this one manages to be just as chic and stylish, whilst having a very friendly atmosphere. The staff were helpful and kind. The room was the perfect blend of cosiness and quality. It is in a great location too - highly recommended.

In my last review I said I would go back and I did. Just come back from the Stratford hotel and again had a wonderful time. Book an online special £130 b+b for 2 nights for 2 people absolute bargain! Quick check in was given room 305 top floor at the front of hotel. Lovely room again very comfy king size bed, tv with free films, payable other style films. Room spotless, has 2 chairs table safe wardrobe and drawers hairdryer and mini fridge (so take your own champagne) bathroom bath with shower above hot and powerful love the shower complimentary shampoo shower gel and soap also spotless. Hotel is a 5 min walk to the centre of stratford passing many bars and eateries. We ate in the hotel the second night they had an offer on £25.00 a head 3 course plus a bottle of wine had a great choice on menu, food was stunning. Breakfast is just as good a choice of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, croissants, full English. The staff are so helpful nothing to much trouble. They will point you in the right direction to all the tourist spots and they even offer you a guide book if needed. This time we stayed on the top floor at the front of the hotel I would recommend staying at the back of the hotel on the 2nd floor as it is quieter. I will definitely go back to this hotel. Go on book you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor at the back of the hotel. Quieter
