i do feel a bit guilty for this review but i feel i have to so that all the trip advisor members get a proper balanced view.we stayed here as we were getting married in stratford and with lots of family coming i wanted somewhere nice to stay,best on trip advisor and looking lovely on the pictures so this hotel got the vote.i am really glad we stayed here but i would certainly like to balance it out and give a few negatives as there were a few.
firstly,we had a superior room which was exactly what it said but as we had family staying i can assure you that not all rooms are fantastic.the showers in some of the double rooms were hopeless and even with some of our skinny frames very hard to get a decent shower in.then i will move on to the major gripe,breakfast.on our first morning it was just the 2 of us but the manager who was doing all the serving reminded me of manuel from faulty towers.it seemed like he forgot more than he remembered and then to top it off i got a slice of mouldy toast which i carefully hid so not to cause a scene which i wanted to avoid since all the families were coming down that day.the breakfast itself was not too bad but we do like to have toast and it seemed to be very slow in coming even when there was only us in the dining room but that got worse when there was all of us there.scrambled eggs which were just about inedible.
in our room which was lovely there was just little details which normally dont bother me but on this occasion they did,all the sealant around the bath had come away leaving a large gap where water will just run down will cause some smells very soon,cracked tiles and as for the noise from the fans,this just seemed to be non stop through the night.like i say small details but i have been to some hotels that have terrible reviews for things such as this and i feel its only fair to mention these things in this case.
we wont be going back to stratford limes,not because it is a bad hotel,just because its too far out of town and the service from pretty much 1 member of staff was lacklustre,everyone else we encountered were fine and helpful and friendly.also on our leaving day he seemed to be confused about which rooms we were in,which confused us since he was trying to say we had 1 room more than we actually did.
as the title says i feel a bit guity but it needed to be said.
