“A lovely hotel”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

I have stayed in other Q Hotels - this one manages to be just as chic and stylish, whilst having a very friendly atmosphere. The staff were helpful and kind. The room was the perfect blend of cosiness and quality. It is in a great location too - highly recommended.

In my last review I said I would go back and I did. Just come back from the Stratford hotel and again had a wonderful time. Book an online special £130 b+b for 2 nights for 2 people absolute bargain! Quick check in was given room 305 top floor at the front of hotel. Lovely room again very comfy king size bed, tv with free films, payable other style films. Room spotless, has 2 chairs table safe wardrobe and drawers hairdryer and mini fridge (so take your own champagne) bathroom bath with shower above hot and powerful love the shower complimentary shampoo shower gel and soap also spotless. Hotel is a 5 min walk to the centre of stratford passing many bars and eateries. We ate in the hotel the second night they had an offer on £25.00 a head 3 course plus a bottle of wine had a great choice on menu, food was stunning. Breakfast is just as good a choice of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, croissants, full English. The staff are so helpful nothing to much trouble. They will point you in the right direction to all the tourist spots and they even offer you a guide book if needed. This time we stayed on the top floor at the front of the hotel I would recommend staying at the back of the hotel on the 2nd floor as it is quieter. I will definitely go back to this hotel. Go on book you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor at the back of the hotel. Quieter

Stayed at The Stratford for one night. The superior room we booked was fantastic, could not fault anything. The hotel is in a great location, within 5 min of the main town. We decided to have dinner in the hotel, wasn't impressed. Food was average, not what I would expect from a 4 star hotel. We decided on our choice of wine, the waitress did her best to change our mind... Needless to say, a lot more expensive! The service was very rushed and not the relaxing evening I had hoped for. The breakfast was lovely, lots of choice. I would recommend this hotel but would suggest dinner at one of the many restaurants in Stratford.

Thank you for your review. I was pleased you enjoyed your stay, however disappointed that your dining experience didn't reflect that of the rest of your stay. We are currently investigating this further to ensure the appropriate action can be taken. I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the future and I would be happy to offer a complimentary bottle of wine with your meal should your stay take place in 2012 as a gesture of goodwill.

Stayed at The Stratford this last week-end to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday year! Everything was perfect from start to finish. We found all the staff to be very friendly. The hotel and room was spotlessly clean. We ate in the Restaurant on our first night which was very good and the choice at breakfast was also very good.
This was our first visit to Stratford, and we loved it. We did the Shakespeare tours, visiting the birthplace and Anne Hathaway's cottage. We also went to the RSC to see "The Heresy of Love" which we can highly recommend. Again, this was the first play we have been to see for years and we both really enjoyed it.
Hope you enjoy Stratford as much as we did. We will return!

Stayed at The Straford this week-end as part of a birthday celebration. We decided to upgrade to a Q-Star room through a special offer that incl. Champagne, Chocs and dinner. We weren't dissapointed - the room was exceptional, the staff were even better. From the moment we arrived the reception staff treated us at individuals and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was very good (although the restaurant and bar ambience could be worked on). Hotel is a 5 min walk from the centre. All in all highly recommended.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Q star
