Stayed there recently when the wife and I unloaded the kids with the in-laws. The hotel is beautiful and is built onto the back of a traditional pub. The room was lovely and most importantly, clean although has resulted in me having to redecorate our bathroom as a result! The bed was also very comfy.
The bar area/pub is good with a lovely relaxed atmosphere, lots of traditional features and a couple of decent ales if you are so inclined although there is an overpowering fishy smell as you walk from the hotel area and bar service wasn't brilliant.
We didn't have dinner here but the breakfast service was a bit chaotic although the food was decent enough and cooked for you I.e. not a buffet. Coffee was excellent!
Very centrally located opposite the market which is very handy and a very good location if you are spending time in Stratford but don't expect a view as a result. Car parking in available but a couple of minutes walk away and price not included as part of the room.
Overall, a lovely hotel and would stay again personally, but avoid if you are a stickler for service.
