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's AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant has views of the gardens where, weather permitting, guests can dine al fresco on the hotel's terrace. 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.

Room in annex was a bit far away from restaurant/main lounge. Slight mix up made over our spa massage booking.

Reprinting your menus to look a little classier in the dining room would make a difference to the dining experience. Other than that it was all lovely. Thank you.

We needed to change rooms because of stairs however the rooms available offered were not as nice as the first original one allocated for us. The reception staff were the most helpful I have ever encountered so friendly and willing to please a rarity these days. We did move back to the first room which was spacious and modern having a very large bed compared to the older rooms. I put up with the stairs to have a nicer room.
