More Room Types

Just up the road from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and with a garden in which the bard himself is reputed to have penned plays, the Arden Hotel is in a great spot for exploring Stratford-upon-Avon. The intimate hotel has a sophisticated air and is part of the exclusive Eden Hotel Collection, which was named Small Hotel Group of the Year in 2014 by The AA.

After a full renovation in 2010, the plush hotel bedrooms feature king-size beds, free Wi-Fi and marble bathrooms. The décor is bright and colourful, with gold or velvet bedspreads and abstract art. Upgrade to a Feature Suite for a deep roll-top bath and a separate sitting area.

At the new Waterside Brasserie restaurant, classic dishes such as sea bass or lamb with potato dauphinois are strong on local ingredients and can be served on the terrace or in the garden (weather permitting). Breakfast is a seriously decadent affair, with duck eggs and soldiers and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs alongside a continental buffet. There is also a Champagne Bar for a celebratory glass of bubbles, the Club Bar with a private riverside terrace, and the Lounge, which serves daily afternoon tea.

Within Stratford-upon-Avon itself you can visit Shakespeare’s birthplace, as well as associated buildings such as Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Seeing a Shakespeare play seems almost obligatory -- the Royal Shakespeare playhouse is close enough to nip back to the hotel for a pint during the interval.
