Excellent hotel if you are visiting the theatre. Clean and comfortable with helpful staff. Had to wait quite a while in the evening to get a drink in one of the bars as several groups came back from the Theatre and they only seemed to have a skeleton staff at this time.

My wife and booked the Arden mainly because we were going to see a play at the theatre. To this end it was ideal, being no more than a stones throw away from the theatre itself. So I'd highly recommend it if you are coming to Stratford to see a show. The hotel is not really what I would pick...

Let me begin with the positive right off the bat. There was ample parking spaces, and given that we were driving a smallish motorhome thing, it was great to be able to park it easily. (Yeah...I hear ya...why did we stay in a hotel if we had a motorhome? - Because the nearest caravan park was 3 miles away, as...

The hotel were so kind and reserved a couple of tables in a quiet corner of their Club Bar. With their own car park and the ability to order tea/coffee and lunch from our meeting corner - this was an excellent place to meet. With only three of us a meeting room would have felt too formal - so this...

The Arden was chosen to celebrate a special birthday for the person dearly loved by family and friends. Nearly thirty persons covering four generations came from the UK and USA . The menu was prepared in advance and everyone had a table tag with their name on one side and their food choice on the other. Guests were politely led...

In Stratford with my wife to attend( wonderful ) performance of RSC production of The Tempest we decided to stay at the Arden because of its central location and very close proximity to the Theatre . Had also stayed there many years before prior to its extensive makeover . I have to say it's location is a major asset ,...

The afternoon tea was really yummy, especially with a glass of bubbly! They even put a candle in my scone as it was to celebrate my 30th birthday. Safe were very friendly. Unfortunately, it was not very busy so the atmosphere wasn't great, could have done with a few more people around, but that couldn't be helped really. Definitely recommend

I stayed two nights in LIME room. The hotel is very nice and it is located in a very nice village. My room was marvelous with a big bathroom. The only negative points were the view from the room...the reception building and the noise. It was not a quite room, all guests passed to go in their rooms and there...
