Recently stayed for 3 nights on a B&B basis in a double room. When we arrived we were greeted by a very polite and friendly receptionist. Check in was quick and simple. There was a slight glitch with the room we were allocated so we returned to reception and the problem was immediately sorted out by the receptionist who was...

Great spacious hotel with perfect location. Kids loved the pool. Good bar and lobby spaces. Friendly staff. Breakfast was average but plentiful. There was some noise from an event in the late evening which disturbed my sleep. But it was dealt with brilliantly by Tomas from reception. Many thanks! If we return to Stratford upon Avon, I would stay here...

This is our first visit since the Holiday Inn has been refurbished and rebranded as a Crown Plaza. The rooms and public areas have been significantly improved. Our bedroom was well appointed with a large and comfortable bed. Toiletries and drink making facilities are also better. Most electrical sockets also now have built in USB charging points which is a...

This hotel offers great rooms which are large and modern furnished. The location is perfect for nipping into the town for shopping or sightseeing. The hotel was a perfect place to stay with great staff, can park right there so easy access. Everything you would need is in the room and the beds are king size and very comfy.

Just returned from another short stay at the Crowne Plaza in Stratford. As previously staff were friendly and very efficient at check in and check out. The room and public spaces were immaculately clean and well-presented and breakfast was great. Our room this time was overlooking the car park, not the best of views, but it was much more quiet...

Have stayed here a few times when it was the Holiday Inn, know they have upgraded it to the Crowne Plaza and they have also upgraded the interior. The staff here are all excellent and nothing is to much trouble. The restaurant is large and the food was excellent.

The hotel is centrally located with a short walk to the centre of Stratford-upon-avon. There is a large car park which is normally £5 a day but as the barrier was broken it was free to park. Breakfast on-site is £10 but there are plenty of other options in the town. The rooms where very nice and looked newly refurbished...
