Our overall experience was very pleasurable! The lunch we had on arrival was tasty (though my jacket potato was the better option of my husband's nice but pricey chicken Caesar salad) and the staff were very helpful. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, if a little unkempt in places (which we liked actually). The room was a decent size and very comfortable. The bed was quite comfy and all of the soft furnishings were clean. The evening meal menu looked very appetising and we selected from the set menu (though we were given free rein on which dishes we picked regardless of us having a meal allowance of £26). The starter of soup was very creamy and satisfying, though our mains were sadly tiny - we thought they would bring us our accompaniments separately and were dismayed to learn that they were already on the plate! While not unaccustomed to fine dining portions or pub chain budget deals, we felt that for the price of £15 the shoulder of lamb wrapped in bacon resembled a chubby chipolata and my salmon dish had a dribble of lemon-butter sauce that again left us underwhelmed. Dessert was a forest fruits cheesecake and a lemon drizzle cake, and both were simply average. The hotel did redeem itself food-wise with delicious breakfast options of porridge, cereal, fresh fruit, pastries or a full English. The overall experience was great as we had a fabulous two days in Stratford and the location was literally 5 minutes drive away. I would recommend the hotel but advise people to skip the evening meal.
