FIrst time visitor to Stratford and looking to a hotel within proximity of the Theatre. Turns out not to be as close as the Premier or the Arden - which is right opposite the RSC - but is still within reasonable walking distance. We had a Q room featuring a King size bed with lots of pillows and this gets... More

We stayed here to visit the RSC and had a very nice stay. The hotel is a quick walk from the railway station, and as Stratford is a small town, everywhere is within walking distance. We had a double room – not massive, but comfortable. It would probably have felt bigger if there were less furniture – for example the... More

Perfect location for a visit to Shakespeare's town. Minutes from the station, so no need for a taxi. Comfortable well presented rooms with a great breakfast and pleasant restaurant. The staff were very friendly and we saw the same receptionist throughout our 24 hour stay, which was actually quite a nice continuity. We stayed here with friends who arrived by... More

The hotel is located ideally for a short walk to all the attractions you're likely to be heading for in Stratford, but is very peaceful too... Our room was beautifully decorated and furnished, feeling like a luxurious space to be in. We would definitely return! We chose not to eat in the restaurant, as it was almost empty and seemed...

15 min walk to Swan Theatre and the nice bistro restaurants on Sheep Street. Lovely boutique hotel, modern design which is a nice relief to the Elizabethan charm of the town and the Shakespeare tourism. Our room had lots of nice features - bathrobes, steam-free bathroom mirror, complimentary mineral water in the minibar. Nice nouvelle cuisine restaurant and cocktail bar.... More

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
