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!
My fiance and I stayed for one night in mid October in the Shirley Suite. Thank you so much to the Shirley family for sharing this treasure. To be staying in a 938 yr old castle surrounded by stunningly beautiful grounds, owned by the same family in all that time, is just amazing. The staff is to be commended. They treated us royally, quick to address any request. The porter gave us an animated and passionate personal tour of the public areas of the hotel and grounds, and even included access to the family chapel. Talk about a history lesson. The hotel's location was just fine to take in an evening play in nearby Stratford-Upon-Avon. (Note to self - leave much early for better parking in S-U-A.) Our only complaint would be the room service late night menu sandwiches did not live up the pizzazz of the rest of the whole visit & food. Even the morning breakfast was quite delightful. We have given rave reviews of our stay to all our family and friends, and will indeed return. THANK YOU!!
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.
