"This is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic historic building. The hotel is situated in the middle of a golf course with lovely grounds around the hotel. The restaurant overlooks the impressive gardens of the hotel with a view down a valley for many, many miles. The staff were excellent, especially Marc in the restaurant who was extremely knowledgeable about the local events and where to visit he was also very friendly. All this took place in a difficult period with the Covid19 outbreak in full flow. Due to restrictions they were only able to offer the bar/bistro menu rather than the Al a Carte menu but this food was top notch and very well cooked."

Overview

The 4-star Hallmark Hotel The Welcombe is set in 157 acres of Italian-style landscaped gardens on the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon. The Grade II-listed Jacobean-style hotel, which was originally built in 1886, features an oak-panelled lounge with a large fireplace, and some of the rooms feature 4-poster beds.

The property is around 10 minutes' drive from Stratford-upon-Avon, a historic market town and the famed birthplace of William Shakespeare. The town is home to The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Swan Theatre and the scenic River Avon.

Warwick Castle is less than 15 minutes' drive away, and Anne Hathaway's Cottage -- a picturesque timbered farmhouse that was the childhood home of Shakespeare's wife -- is in the nearby village of Shottery, about a mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon.

The edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is around 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, while Birmingham city centre is around 45 minutes' drive away.

The hotel restaurant offers a contemporary take on classic country-house cuisine, and has views of the gardens where, weather permitting, guests can dine al fresco on the hotel's terrace. Breakfast is usually served buffet-style on weekends, with a plated service during the week, although this is subject to availability.

As well as an 18-hole golf course, facilities include a spa with an indoor swimming pool, a health club with a gym, and a range of health and beauty treatments (extra charges apply).

Superior and Executive Rooms are more spacious than Classic Rooms. Wi-Fi is free.

located not far from town centre, staff friendly, limited meal choice due to cover 19, limited guess, hotel dated but stunning building, needs cash input and good clean. Towels stored in outside shed with damaged and open roof so birds etc can have access to, shed doors to same left open!!! nice gardens, although also need sorting now most of which is golf course. Front access parking has water leak and reduced space due to same. Shame lovely staff on 0 contracts, glorious building that needs looking after, inside tired and dated :(

Despite low bookings due to coronavirus my husband and I enjoyed our stay. We were particularly happy with the upgrade to a suite as it was his 70th Birthday. The pool, saunas etc in the spa were amazing and would love to return just to spend another day there.
