Stayed here whilst seeing a play at the RSC. The location was excellent, very close to the theatre and the shops. Parking wasn't as much of a problem as we thought it would be. We checked in after 3 and the lady on reception had to phone housekeeping to check the room was ready. It was a nice room, interesting layout. However, the Nespresso coffee machine had a pod in already so obviously had not been cleaned. When I checked the minibar it was empty - a bit if a shock when there was a label on the fridge door saying everything inside was included in the price of the room. We phoned reception to inform them then went out shopping. When we came back the fridge had a bottle of coke, diet coke, orange juice, still and sparkling water in it. I looked for a bottle opener and couldn't find one. I phoned reception and asked them. After 20 minutes a barman came up to open them. We were on our way out so asked him to leave the opener with us for later. He told us the hotel only had one opener so he could come back if we told him what time we wanted them open. He was very apologetic but the whole situation was farcical!! I ended up not being able to drink anything but the water!! Doubt I would pay the extra £20 for this type of room if I were to stop at the hotel again!
