Disjointed hotel
Disappointing in the fact that restaurant and bar are separate from hotel so for company expenses point of view all rather disjointed. I just wanted to put it all on my room and pay at checkout. Plus could not get a table for 1 at restaurant as I had not booked yet I am a resident at the hotel??? Won’t be staying there again as it is too inconvenient. I did have breakfast in the restaurant though so linked in some ways

Everything about the hotel and the location was excellent, however the dining in the evening and for breakfast was not good at all. An item was put onto my plate after I specifically told them about my dietary needs so I had to call them over to clarify and was told sorry that should not of been on your plate, NOT GOOD at all. Another member of the group asked for side salad with their main and was SHOCKED to receive lettuce and cucumber only... she asked for some tomato but was told we do not have any... a restaurant with no fresh tomatoes !! She asked again for another type of lettuce of which they obliged. Breakfast was not much better. the toast was not cooked enough it was soft and the breakfast itself was not hot enough. There was no fresh fruit at all. I asked for granola or Alpen as their was only rice krispies, cornflakes and weetabix ( talk about baby food ) I was told after asking that they did not have any that day. To think 4 people had to pay £174 for b and b I would of thought the breakfast would of been ALOT BETTER. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED as it was too expensive

Lovely setting.
Lovely hotel in a lovely setting. Friendly helpful staff, however the bar closed on Saturday night at 10pm, the restaurant and breakfast service suffered from lack of personnel to the extent that one evening the restaurant was unable to open. All in all a very nice weekend away close to the centre of Stratford with all its many attractions.
