This B&B is in a perfect location. For us it is handy to the station (about a 4 minute walk) and close to the theaters and restaurants. We had the same warm welcome as last time we stayed. I highly recommend this accommodation and we will stay there next time we are in Stratford upon Avon. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet.

My self and partner had a three day visit to Stratford Upon Avon booked for August and after looking on the internet we came across Arden Park guest house. There was a part on the bookings that said "make us an offer" and so i did, not thinking i would get a response as i had only offered £40.00 per night for a double room.
I was amazed when i received an e-mail back saying that our offer had been accepted. I Rang the owner and laughingly asked "what the catch was", he replied "no catch" he would rather let a room cheaper than have it empty which at the time i thought "what a good idea"! however on arrival, there was no parking only the pvement in front of the guest house so we were given parking passes for the car park a bit futher along the road, these cost us £5.oo per day so that was an additional £15.00.
The owner was quite helpfull giving us a map and some info on were to eat he also offered breakfast at an additional £5.00 per person per day, I have to say i was taken aback when i was asked to pay in full there and then, i had not even seen the room if i had i would probably have refused and tried to find elsewere but i had paid and i am not one for complaining so we decided to grin and bear it for the three nights. Room very dated, tired looking and extremely small, shower room the same, however it was clean otherwise i would have left, the owner showed us how to work the tv and lowered it to a level he thought would not disturb the other guests, we are not children and would always consider other guests, we have never had a complaint yet and we do have lost of weekends away. On a lighter note we moved on to our other destination £55.00 per night B&B fantastic full english breakfast our own patio to sit out on, very clean, spacious and the owners could not do enough for us. After comparing the two places i felt that £40.00 was not really a cheap bid after all for what we received. Sorry for the bad coment but i really did feel we had the bargain bucket. I would never attempt to make a bid anywere ever again.

dear steve

why did you not properly read the 'Make An Offer' page on our website? it clearly states that parking and breakfast are optional extras at £5 per car per night and £5 per meal.

also, why did you not read the email that i sent you confirming your room as "DBL (Budget) ENSUITE for 1-2. small room, 1st floor"?

----------

we have 9 ensuite rooms. 2 are budget rooms, a twin in the basement and your small double on the first floor. we also have 5 standard rooms on the first and second floor and a further 2 superior rooms on the ground floor.

a guest having an low-price offer accepted for a twin or a double will always be confirmed into a budget room.

when circumstances permit, we often upgrade guests' rooms, but, of course, priority is given to those who pay the normal tariff.

it is something that reasonable people understand and expect.

----------

the 'Make An Offer' page on our website is intended for guests who want clean ensuite town centre accommodation, but who might be, for whatever reason, on a restricted budget.

there is no 'catch' and i am wounded by the inference.

the normal 3-night mid-week peak-season rate for your room, via our website, is £186 with breakfast and parking or £158 for room only.

i accepted your offer of £120 in good faith and i feel that your disappointment with us is due to your unrealistic expectation of a low-price top-specification deal.

----------

our 'Make An Offer' page has, to date, been popular and I would like to retain it, but, if it means a reduced income AND a terrible review then i may reconsider the facility.

it is your prerogative to rate us 1 out of 5 (Terrible), but such a brutal rating adversely affects our TripAdvisor ranking and, by extension, our business.

thankfully, your opinion is not shared by the overwhelming majority of reviewers who have contributed to TripAdvisor over the years.

regards

Excellent stay at the Arden Park. Highly recommended. Perfect location, comfortable rooms and a very hospitable welcome. Easy for car parking as well as close to town. It was clear that a great deal of thought and care goes into how the Arden Park is run.

Great location, great value, the owners very welcoming, efficient & helpful. Fantastic and healthy breakfast that kept us going until 5pm and an absolute heaven for cheese lovers! Overall the greatest and most relaxing time in comparison with all other Guest Houses we have stayed in around the UK. Indeed, I would agree with other guests about the water pressure in the shower, but the relaxing atmosphere compensates lovely for this minor inconvenience. Highly recommended!! So uplifting and peacefull weekend, fully recharged batteries surrounded by culture and nature of the highest class, just taking it easy and glowing with happiness!! Fantastic memories! Love Stratford-upon-Avon and Arden Park Gest House did not take any bit of that beauty away, it was just right.

Room Tip: Top floor double room was very pleasant.
