We were greeted by a wonderfully warm and polite receptionist who immediately made us feel welcome. The room was just perfect apart from the iron not working - not a problem. Within 10 mins it was replaced by another excellent and friendly member of the team. After spending the day sight seeing we returned to the hotel and decided to... More

Absolutely fantastic room, the bed was so large and comfortable there was almost an echo, far more wardrobe and drawer space than most other hotels we have stayed in. Staff were very warm and friendly but there was a distinct lack of attention at meals (clearing up etc) which is a shame because everything else was just right. Nonetheless it... More

The hotel has a good location being only 5 minutes walk into Stratford-upon-Avon. Its built on the site of an old hospital but its a relatively new building. The reception is very conference focussed as i guess this is the hotel's main revenue source. It has a big bar area and a restaurant called Quills. The bedrooms are really comfortable... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chic and sophisticated, this delightful hotel is the epitome of good taste. And we don't just mean our heavenly restaurant, Quills. Following our £7 million refurbishment, the décor is oh so contemporary and absolutely gorgeous. The extravagant rooms take you to a place beyond comfort. Centrally located, a stroll away from great shopping, theatres and attractions, and 2 minutes from the train station. ... more   less
