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.
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!!
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!
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.
