If you think "Premier Inn", and then think the exact opposite, you've just summed up The College Arms.

It's a quirky place with all sorts of 'interesting' features, but they serve a fine breakfast and I left with a smile on my face.

I only stayed for one night, and although I had a couple of minor niggles, they were sorted to my satisfaction.

There were no noise problems in my room, and it was both warm and comfortable.

Would I stay again? Probably not, there are loads of other places to try. Would I recommend it? Sure, because it's not a Premier Inn.

We would like to say what a lovely stay we had at the College Arms. We were a little worried when reading the adverse comments on this website
We took up the offer of 3 nights for the price of 2 and was thoroughly satisfied. Breakfast was as good as any 3* hotel, fruit juice, cereals and a fully cooked English breakfast that included a very tasty local butchers sausage, followed by toast and marmalade
The bedroom was very spacious and comfortable - lovely white laundered bed linen and towels. The bathroom was spotless and included a bath with shower
We ate in the restaurant all 3 evenings and found the food very nicely cooked and tasty There was a little noise on the Friday night due to live music but we had been prepared for this - however by the time we settled down the music had stopped and all was quiet for the night
We found the staff friendly & efficient
We would easlly recommend this accommodation to anyone

Just stayed for three nights. We loved the old country inn feel, and would look forward to going back at the end of a day out.
Would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting Stratford. Also ate their three times, and food was excellent.

My hubby and I have just stayed here for 2 nights. Very friendly, we did not encounter much noise, but was prepared , as this is a pub after all. We booked here as it looked like a quaint pub, and it is. The food was fab, the service fab and the price for what you get is fab. Would recommend to my friends. Close to stratford too. lovely relaxing two night break.

My wife and I found the College Arms and particulary the manageress - very friendly. A quaint old tavern set overlooking the village green with brilliant food and very very good value for money. Handy for Stratford and the Cotswolds...We would visit again
