Overview

Opposite the famous 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. Part of the exclusive Eden Hotel Collection, which was named Small Hotel Group of the Year in 2014 by The AA, this quirky getaway is "a peaceful place away from the hustle and bustle of the town's touristy centre", say the Radio Times.

Within Stratford-upon-Avon itself you can visit Shakespeare's Birthplace, and Anne Hathaway's Cottage. Seeing a Shakespeare play seems almost obligatory -- the Royal Shakespeare Theatre is close enough to nip back to the hotel for a pint during the interval. Stratford Butterfly Farm is less than a 10-minute walk away.

At the Waterside Brasserie restaurant, classic dishes that 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 the Champagne Bar for a celebratory glass of bubbles, and innovative cocktails, the Club Bar with a private riverside terrace, and the Lounge, which serves daily afternoon tea.

With gold or velvet bedspreads, abstract art and a king-size bed, each of the plush and vibrantly decorated hotel rooms feature free Wi-Fi and marble bathrooms.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. We had a spacious room with a comfortable seating area and a river view. The breakfast had plenty of choice, freshly cooked to order and we had a choice of savoury or sweet afternoon tea. Staff extremely pleasant

Breakfast- food very good but service not good. Staff were busy preparing tables for afternoon tea leaving people having breakfast unattended. Lady in black suit needs to smile as does the tall guy behind the bar. The rest of the waitresses were very helpful and smiley.
