We are very fussy about where we stay and this hotel lived up to our expectations. We visited Stratford Upon Avon with friends for two nights to see a show at the RSC. We received parking instructions from the hotel before our visit and on arrival parked in the drop off bay (1 of 3 bays) located in the Table Table pub (Red Lion). You then cross the road to access the Premier Inn. You can park for 20 mins which is sufficient time to check in and take your bags to the room. I then moved the car to the Marina car park whcih is accessed by the slip road at the side of the Holiday Inn Hotel (literally 2 mins drive away in the one way system) it is signposted. There are two pay and display machines on the wall in this car park use the one on the left hand side and pay by debit/credit card (not cash). This way you can pay for 24 hours at a time. You just need to put in the amount you wish to pay and the time is then allocated. I paid £8.00 which allowed me to park from 15.00 on the Sunday to 15.00 (48 hours) on the Tuesday. You can not do this if you try to pay with cash. This is a bargain for city centre parking. It then takes you about 5 mins to walk back to the hotel.
The hotel is modern, clean and quiet (we had a ground floor room). The rooms are standard Premier Inn layout. I agree with the comments about it being a bit of a maze but this was not a problem (We had to go upstairs then back down again to get to the rooms). ALL staff where friendly helpful and polite. There is a small restaraunt/bar on the 1st floor next to the reception and we ate breakfast here which was very good although after 9.00 it can get very busy and you may have to wait. The staff worked very hard to get you through as quickly as they can.
Once parked up we never used the car as the hotel is in walking distance of all of the sites. We ate in the Rooftop restaraunt at the RSC before the show we went to watch (Fixed price pre show menu) £11.50 one course, £15.50 two courses and £18.50 for three courses. Stunning views and fantasic service. Also ate at Vintners on Sheep Street again excellent service.
If you are staying here then you have made a good choice as we could not fault it in any way.
We will be back.
