The room was perfectly adequate but we had been expecting something a little more characterful. The traditional part of the building is small and most of the rooms seem to be in a somewhat institutional-feeling, modern extension. A long corridor led to a room with no bathtub, and whose shower offered nothing but an overhead fitting - so it was an "all or nothing" deal when it came to personal hygiene! There was a small fridge but it offered only cold storage space - no mini-bar type goodies of any kind. The frame round our window was so rotten that chunks of it came away when we opened it for some air. In Stratford Upon Avon you would have thought it might be obvious that guests would appreciate having a decent map of the city centre and principal sights / places of interest available. But there was only a very dark photocopy of one on offer at the Reception desk, and no information whatever in the room. On the "plus" side, the staff kindly looked after our luggage after checkout, as our train back to London didn't leave until 5 in the afternoon, and the location, near the river and just across the bridge from the Royal Shakespeare theatre was very convenient.
