“Weekend Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

have just attended a Ladies Festival weekend at this hotel 12/10/2012 - 15-12/2012 and can only agree with the positive comments I have seen. We had a superior room was very large and comfortable (especially the bed) All the staff were very friendly, the food was very good and our event with 78 people was a success. The location is fantastic for touring the local area, we did the open top bus tour followed by the 5 houses associated with Shakespeare (£41) also Warwick Castle although not cheap is well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Would highly recommend the Superior Room

We had a wonderful two night stay at The Stratford. We had a superior room which was large and very comfortable and was just perfect. All the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good, as were the dinners. The hotel is in a perfect location for wandering around the area. Would definitely like to come back and stay here again.

Had a three night break with my Mum and the staff were great, the guy on the desk when we arrived at 3pm on the 10th October was excellent and very knowledgeable about the whole area and we followed a number of his recommendations.
The room was large, very clean, well laid out and as requested a twin...

We held our annual customer user group meeting at this hotel and I can honestly say we experienced a fantastic professional service. Nothing was too much trouble for the warm friendly staff even our last minute requests were met with a happy can do attitude! So refreshing to have this level of service - it felt more like a 5 star hotel! Rooms very clean and modern and the food was scrumptious with plenty of choice. Will definitley visit again :)

This hotel is very comfortable. The standard double room had 2 easy chairs, so often there is only 1 easy chair for 2 people, which I can't understand. The bed was very comfortable, we had an excellent night's sleep. It was a Saturday night and the hotel was full. but there was very little noise in the hotel. There was a good breakfast buffet. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from the RSC theatre, which makes it an excellent choice for a theatre trip. We would certainly return to this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel a couple of times on business, and a very nice choice.

Clean comfortable well decorated rooms, very comfortable beds.

Excellent restaurant, the breakfast buffet offers a huge choice and if you ask for something particular though it will cost extra they try to sort it for you. In the evenings the restaurant is also very good, everything cooked to order but service can be a little slow if it's busy, so if you're pushed for time check out the number of reservations they have before you order.

Car park wise, drive around the hotel to the far side for the best parking, and a side door to the hotel that takes you straight through to the main staircase to the rooms and close to the lifts, rather than slogging round to the main entrance!

Room Tip: Don't get a room anywhere above the kitchens ..... noisy all night, and I had to ask to be moved...

What a lovely hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was freshly cooked and an excellent choice of hot and cold food (buffet style). The staff were pleasant and friendly without exception. Despite having to arrive very early for a meeting at the hotel everything was done to get us into our room quickly. Faultless service. The only minor gripe was the dinner (a private function for 110 people). The main meal was beef and as I do not eat meat a vegetarian meal and been requested by the organiser on my behalf. The meat eaters received a delicious meal of roast potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pud, beef and a red wine sauce. I was given rice with minted peas! However, this is a common problem at hotels and I have learnt to expect it.
