Just spent a weekend at The Stratford Hotel to meet up with an old friend and I can't think of anything negative to say. The hotel is in a fantastic location for visiting all things Shakespeare - everything is within walking distance. Parking at the hotel wasn't a problem.
All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean and the twin room was much larger than expected.
Breakfast was excellent with a huge selection of hot and cold choices. We didn't eat in the evening so can't comment on the restaurant other than at breakfast.
The outstanding area if I had to mention one was the customer service. Everyone we came in to contact without exception was friendly, courteous and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to return with my family in the summer.

My husband and I stayed at The Stratford for two nights over Valentine's weekend, it was his Christmas gift from me.
I can not fault anything about our stay! All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant.
On Valentine's evening, the restaurant was very busy but the service was faultless. Food arrived quickly and could not be faulted on both evenings. On Valentine's evening they had provided a Mr & Mrs Quiz, which I thought was a lovely touch and made the evening more special. We won the quiz which meant we had a chilled bottle of Prosecco ready & waiting the evening after.
The room was clean and comfortable and very well laid out. The champagne and chocolates provided as part of the romantic package I had booked was a lovely extra, especially as it was Valentine's day.
The hotel is in a fabulous location, within walking distance to the local town and attractions.
I chose a Q Hotel as my brother previously worked for Q and I'm so glad I did. We will be returning and also exploring more hotels in the chain.
Highly recommended. Thank you to all the staff for making our weekend so special.

We stayed for a valentine treat after a visit to the RSC. Booked a standard room and when we arrived advised we had been up graded, which was a lovely surprise. Check in was efficient, pleasant and courteous staff.
Room was very comfortable, king size bed with crisp linen, mattress topper, choice of pillows and luxury quilt, plenty of fresh towels, complimentary toiletries and bathrobes. Complimentary bar and snacks due to upgrade.
Room was spacious with seating area and plenty of storage space, cleaned to a very high standard.
Bathroom was lovely, great shower and bath tub.
Good selection of food at breakfast, buffet style self service.
Central to town centre, we will definitely stay again.

Second visit and really enjoy the comfort of the Q Hotel.
Very clean and tidy and I want to buy a bed like they have ! Sleeeeeep ;-)

Only little gripe was the breakfast which we felt was a bit bland......Not really going to bore you with the details of the separate items but none of it really held any flavour!

Oh! we all expect to pay a bit more for our drinks at a hotel but just over £7 for a medium white wine REALLY !

All said and done~ will revisit again ;-)

We enjoyed our stay at The Stratford and found it very comfortable and handy for the town centre. It's rather 'corporate' but all the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was spotlessly clean. We asked for some alternative types of tea in the room and it was readily provided.(Perhaps green tea and Earl Grey could be provided as a matter of course?).

Breakfast was good and plentiful, with plenty of choice and variety.

My only other suggestion would be more Freeview channels on the TV, but this is a minor point. We will certainly stay at the Stratford if we visit the town again.

We were a party of four from Cheshire, we have stayed in this hotel about four years ago and everything was how we remembered. What a great hotel, the rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean. The staff were cheerful and very helpful nothing too much trouble. The breakfast well what can I say it was gorgeous, and I must mention Dougie our waiter, his service and attention to detail was second to none, he was extremely pleasant and told us about the sights and how to get there. Five star service from a four star hotel.
