A great hotel with an updated room in a historic building. Yes, they play up the Shakespeare angle, but isn't that the point? Our room (the 'Agincourt') was clean and spacious, with a separate lounge area and a well-appointed, en-suite bath. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Daphne, at the front desk, was very professional yet personable. We highly recommend it!
The Arden Hotel is situated opposite the Royal Shakespeare Theatre - what could be more perfect for a couple of theatre buffs? The ambience is calm and restful, with light cool interiors and a comfortable lounge. The service is exemplary with friendly professional staff, who remained calm even when under pressure. The food is very good too - especially the breakfasts. I'd recommend the hotel to anyone wanting classy accommodation very close to the theatre.

In the heart of historic Stratford-on-Avon, the newly refurbished Arden Hotel is the epitome of elegance and sophistication …More
Perfect location by the river. Room was amazing. Little touches added to the stay, like the bottled water on arrival in crystal glasses and the teapot. The monsoon shower was out of this world. Comfy beds with feather pillows and duvet led to a restful night's sleep. Shame we were only staying for one night. Would definitely return on next trip to Stratford.
We loved this hotel ,historic but not creepy, very tastefully decorated , clean bright interesting and modern, although very old of course, and centrally located so everything was in walking distance. Our guest room was bright very clean modern raining shower unit, comfortable bed. I just loved everything! I could hear the people above us walking around a bit, but it wasnt intrusive at all.The reception staff very helpful and welcoming, and we will definately be staying here again.Stratford is a great place to visit and this hotel was the ising on the cake for us !
Situated in area where there are plenty of guest houses to choose from, I got a late good value deal that was just right for a night stop.
Although located next to a busy road I had a room which was towards the rear of the property which provided a quiet, comfortable nights sleep.
Had a little difficulty locking the door from within the room and there seems to be only a modest amount of space to put bags if travelling 'heavy' but overall a nice property in the expected B&B style.
We have stayed at the Alveston Manor many times over the years and always enjoyed our stay. We were disappointed to discover that there is now a £5 parking charge (which covers a total stay). This is to prevent non guests from parking in the hotel, but the rooms are not cheap (the suites especially - it was a special occasion for us) and we felt that this could have been either hidden in the cost or a token given to guests to prevent them from being clamped by the independent policing company - bad show Macdonald Hotels! We stayed in the Queen Elizabeth Suite, which had been redecorated and updated since our last stay. As it is on its own in the grounds it is lovely and quiet, there are 2 rooms above the suite but we never heard any noise. In the past we have stayed in the standard rooms and found them to be acceptable. The breakfast is lovely with a great selection, we did not have any other meal in the restaurant as to our mind it is quite expensive and not to our taste, but others may not share that view. The staff were very helpful and friendly, we would definitely recommend this hotel and use it again.
