“short break”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

If you are looking for a short break around Stratford-upon -Avon, then i would thoroughly recommend this hotel, the staff were friendly and joined in some banter with us,room very very clean with a spacious feel (even though this was the disabled room) with modern well appointed furniture and a comfortable bed, the older part of the hotel into the main bar was a little tight getting in with a wheelchair but manageable and expected for an older building,food was very good.
A very big well done to all and will be staying again in the future.

Our experience was very disappointing. Bunk bed in our room squeaked every time the children moved so had to put the mattresses on the floor so we could all sleep undisturbed. No hot water at all the first morning, so cold showers. When I told the staff, their response ref. the bed was for us to lift it to see if the legs had been moved, and regarding the hot water, they just said the problem had been fixed. There was no apology, or even the slightest sense they were at all bothered by our problems. Breakfast was 8.30-9.30 at the weekend so we arrived at 9 to find they had run out of fruit and yoghurt with no replacements. The cooked buffet was adequate, and there was a limited offering of toast, cheap juice, cheap packets of jam and butter. In general, everything appeared too much effort, even a smile. They also appeared in a hurry to clear away our table so we didn't feel at all relaxed. Their local knowledge was poor as they said the park and ride was £1 each. It is £1 per car plus £1.70 per person, so turned out way more expensive than parking in Stratford where we noticed the car parks were £4/day and no where near full, even on a Saturday in the Easter holidays. We would not go back.

Room Tip: Room 18 was a large family room with bunks and twin beds. Outside lights were very bright.

booked a 2 day break via wowcher and ended up staying for 3 nights enjoyed it so much .the staff are friendly knowledgeable and helpful.The food very good the whole place was spotlessly clean.Although we had to move rooms as we wanted to stay a second night we actually prefered the second room so if you get offered room 14 dont be put off that it is so close to the bar.The hotel itself is convenient for both Stratford and the Cotswolds we had a wonderful time and will be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: both rooms we stayed in were good

Saturday lunchtime, not many having lunch. Served by two grumpy waitresses, one who shuffled around and a barman who only smiled once or was that wind? Whilst we were served with drinks quickly, we then had to wait 25 minutes for order to be taken. Ordered nachos, £7.95, consisted of nachos covered by stuff out of a jar and very little cheese. What a shame all this spoilt very pleasant and good value main courses. Was just about to forgive them and then found they charge an additional £1.50 for credit cards. Get into the real world. NEVER AGAIN

We stayed here for an evening trip to the RSC at Stratford. The location is terrific as it is surrounded by countryside but only a few minutes from the south side of Stratford. It is even closer to a decent sized Waitrose. The pub looks nice but we were out all evening and didn't try it. There were three of us staying there me, my wife and our daughter. We had one room with a double bed and bunk-beds. The room (#12) was a bit small and a little old-fashioned with nowhere to sit. The breakfast was a buffet style and was fine. The waitress was friendly and efficient. It cost us £95 for the night (with breakfast) compared with £63 for a Premier Inn family room in Stratford (without breakfast). Even allowing for breakfast and parking, the Premier Inn will work out cheaper for a nicer, larger room. So that's where we will be staying to see Henry IV part 2.

Our stay was via a cut-price voucher deal, so it was value for money from the start. Accommodation has been built around an original pub. It is ok in most ways: ok, but if you were paying the full price it would have been questionable fare. Positives are that staff are welcoming and helpful, the bar has charming features – save for the dominant gaming machine – it is clean throughout and our room was well-appointed. Less positive is the food, a little lacking in quality, and the dining room, rather cold and too much like a cafe. Plastic flowers, faded photo of Princess Di, table-top adverts to attend a function held three weeks ago and the lack of tablecloths and place settings don’t help. Returning to positives, it has ample parking and is just a 10 minutes’ drive into Stratford.

My wife and I visited the New Inn on a Wowcher voucher. It was certainly value for money. Plenty of car park space (free); reception was quick and friendly. Our room was in a newly built annex , access only by going outside. The room was reasonably large, this one had twin beds and a double bunk. Bathroom had a shower only, but it was one of the best we have had in any hotel. the only downside of the room was the fact that there was only one chair. Not very satisfactory when both of us were watching TV. One small point to mention was the heating did not come on during the early evening and I had to mention this to the reception staff on those two occasions; once mentioned, the heating was put on, but only after a time sitting in a cold room. The menu was quite extensive, with a carvery each night if you so wished. Food was of a high standard and the service was good and friendly. Breakfast was satisfactory. Points to note are, there was no fruit available, fresh or otherwise, and the toast, (thin white only) was put out on the hot plate with the full English so it was not as fresh as we would have liked. I missed toasting my own thick brown bread. Apart from these small points, this is a hotel I would recommend.
