Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nicola80 Great location and Lobby Area but bed uncomfortable
We chose the hotel as I have been to Stratford-upon-Avon with some friends in March and noticed the location of the hotel is fabulous and had a amble parking facilities.
When we arrived at the hotel the lobby area is very impressive and the check in was very quick. The bar and restaurant area were also lovely and you could catch a barge for a ride by the hotel if wished at a cost of £5.50 per person which was a handy location. We did not eat in the hotel but had a drink sat in the garden area, which again is impressive and very comfortable.
We had requested a quiet room as it was our anniversary and we were given one on the top floor at the back of the hotel. We experienced no noise in the room at all. Going up to the room though the hallways were unbelievably hot but this was eased in our room with the air-conditioning. The room however looks a little dated, especially with the way the lobby looks. One of the bedside lights had no bulb but even if it had the lighting is not great when you are trying to get ready. There was two types of pillows which are fine but the bed was really hard and uncomfortable. I woke up after the first night with sore hips and the second night with back ache.
We did have a look at the gym and pool area but did not get the time to use them but they appeared good.
All in all this is a nice hotel but money does need to be spent on the rooms and especially the beds as although we did not spend much time in the room not getting a good night sleep was not the best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah18 Great location
Lovely location with nice gardens to sit in. Nice hotel with friendly staff. Only downside was the distance we had from the lift to the room. And the bathroom was a little on the tight side with the door opening right onto the toilet, but apaprt from that an overall great stay. Bed a great size and very comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by legs43 Excellent Location + service, diminished by provision of narrowl bed
I had been a IHG customer for many years. I choose this Holiday Inn for a family reunion because of Stratford's central location in middle England as well as the local attractions of national / international cultural interest.
The hotel lives up to its four star rating in some areas. My family enjoyed their stay.
My wife and I were provided with a 4ft. 6".bed which was too narrow for comfort and directly diminished our sleep quality.
Most four star hotels and some three star these days provide 5ft wide beds as standard.
Holiday Inn must keep up to date
