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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chic and sophisticated, this delightful hotel is the epitome of good taste. And we don't just mean our heavenly restaurant, Quills. Following our £7 million refurbishment, the décor is oh so contemporary and absolutely gorgeous. The extravagant rooms take you to a place beyond comfort. Centrally located, a stroll away from great shopping, theatres and attractions, and 2 minutes from the train station. ... more less
