Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Milly Molly Mandy OK - comfortable overall
Standard good. Good value. Downstairs terrace area & garden seating very pleasant. Faulty room kettle replaced immediately, suggest better quality kettlles. Shouldnt they all have a safety check sticker? Breakfast & dinner - good choice. Hair conditioner not included in toiletries.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rienzi Great place for a conference
This is the best Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in, and the location is wonderful. Food provided for session breaks was very good and staff were very attentive. To be able to take a break on the terrace overlooking the water was very enjoyable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Topsy59 Three night stay.
Most enjoyable stay with choice of rooms on arrival. Room clean
and spacious on third floor. Lift to ground floor very efficient and
quiet. Staff efficient and courteous. Menu excellent , as was the
food. Would certainly recommend this hotel to all my friends.
Only negative was that a large conference at the hotel restricted
at times, our enjoyment of the lounges.y

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Late Night Disco Makes Sleep Impossible
I stay at this hotel frequently when going to RSC productions and it is a superb location for this and as a base for day trips for the surrounding area. Generally the hotel is fine (rooms could use some modernisation) and breakfast is good. I was welcomed as a gold elite member. The problem I had was that we were given a room on the first floor directly above the ballroom. There was some company in having a conference when we were staying and they had a late night disco that was extremely loud. Although I had earplugs in I could still make out the lyrics. I would strongly recommend that when a conference is booking and having a disco that the rooms directly above the ballroom be reserved for those attending the conference. If we'd been given a room on the second floor or towards the back we might not have had a night with such limited sleep. When we mentioned it the next morning the reception desk staff apologised and gave us free parking ... free parking that the letter we were given when we arrived said we were entitled to anyway since I'm a gold elite member! And it doesn't really make a difference since by that time you've had a disturbed night's sleep. sigh. I will be coming back because of the hotel's location. They've put lots of money into refreshing the reception, dining, and front-of-house areas of the building, but this money should have been spent on the bedrooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Borthy Buffet breakfast
I feel I must comment on the buffet breakfast.
I don't expect to stay at a hotel of the standard of Holiday Inn and have to put a teabag in a mug and fill it with boiling water as happened at Stratford. We subsequently stayed at Holiday Inn Washington and there I am pleased to say I was served with a teapot of tea at the table
In addition I am afraid that the bacon served on the buffet had obviously been lying for too long as if was dry and very hard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Titania54 Gem in a town centre
This hotel remains one of our favourites, even more so following the refurbishments which are stunning. It's unusual to find such a large hotel located in a town centre and this fits the bill perfectly. Although it is a larger hotel it still retains a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Car parking facilities are great too and all the staff are helpful and cheerful. Couldn't recommend this one highly enough!

We stayed in this hotel for just one night. Loved the location as we could walk everywhere. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Planning to go back there during the christmas holidays again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petel A special two days
Thank you Holiday Inn for a special two days. As a surprise Birthday Present for my wife I'd arranged for all our three offspring, their partners and all 5 grandchildren to be together at the Holiday Inn in Stratford-upon-Avon for two nights. You can imagine all the special requirements, of food, sleeping arrangements etc. All were catered for by your brilliant and attentive staff. There was a safe grassed area for the children to let of steam, there was a play area, which was used for the Easter Egg hunt. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. We will have to do this again, everyone said, on leaving.

Arrived early to make use of the day, pleasantly surprised when the room was made available, even more so when upgraded to Exec room, thankyou to the staff/ hotel for that.
Staff, room and facilities, bar and restaurant were excellent and would easily recommend this hotel for a short weekend break
Breakfast the next morning was a little bit chaotic but that would not put me off a return visit to this particular hotel, Thankyou.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cathandco Great location but horrible coffee!
We have stayed at Holiday Inn Stratford before and enjoy the central location and pool. The public spaces are impressive but the breakfast is no better than cheaper competitors - in fact we stayed at a competitor on our way back for half the price and enjoyed their far superior coffee. The family rooms have a good layout and lighting plus are spacious - but starting to be on the shabby side. The lack of free wi fi is disappointing. Our bath silverware was black in places which was somewhat offputting. Budget competitors have smarter rooms with free wifi and parking for half the price. Holiday Inn take note!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tenerifian More like 5 star than 4 star
Stayed here last year and found it to be very good in every department.
Since then a lot of refurbishment / redesign has taken place and we were both blown away by the whole hotel (even though the work not yet completed).
Everything was perfect from arrival to departure - opulent, welcoming, relaxing in fact all you could wish for when you want to 'wind down'.
The staff, from reception - restaurant - room maids were friendly, helpful and showed that they were happy to be of service.
We both left believing that this had been the first 5 star hotel we had ever stayed in - hoping though that it stays, at least, at 4 star prices.
Very highly recommended * * * * * will definitely be going back soon - the sooner the better!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by penycae Another excellent return visit
This was another very relaxing and enjoyable three-day stay with the family. It was a return visit of many over a period of more than twenty years! Thoroughly recommended. Every one of the Staff, without exception, was courteous, pleasant and ready to assist with advice when asked....and always smiling.

Exemplary service. Good value. Would prefer car parking charges be lost in overall cost though. Would make a fantastic venue for a party or a wedding - nice grounds, river view and terrace bar. Will visit again. Central location ideal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Utred the Viking Comfortable & Relaxed atmosphere
A weekend break that should have been longer, regrettably, work prevails. A comfortable and relaxing weekend
The surroundings, staff, room, amenities and the hotel in general
was what you would expect from a major hotelier. No complaints.
We would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends knowing that they would enjoy their stay here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arco Relaxing weekend
I stayed at the Stratford Holiday Inn with my daughter. We had a very relaxing time with everything we needed for a short break away to celebrate Mother's Day. We were both really impressed with the hotel and thought it was very smart. The location on the river is perfect and very close to town. We were surprised how quiet it was and we both slept well. The rooms were clean and the breakfast great. Plenty of choice and lots of fresh fruit as well as a filling cooked breakfast. I would certainly book to stay there again without hesitation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kimmikoo Nicely placed hotel shame about the Leisure facilities
This was a booking for my birthday so we chose this hotel as it is in a lovely location and has leisure facilites. The hotel is under refurbishment. The outside area and bar have been redesigned and look fabulous. Unfortunately the leisure facilities are very small and in desperate need of updating. Also the jacuzzi was not working, which was a shame as I was so looking forward to a relaxing soak.
Overall it is a lovely hotel and we will stay again when the leisure facilites have been updated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KASS1 Great location but needs to up customer care
The location is perfect for exploring the town.
However more staff are needed for check-in at busy times as I waited for nearly 20 minutes to check in.
The room was clean and comfortable but very warm and sleep was not easy.
Breakfast was ok but the staff need to smile a little more.
Check out was very good in contrast to check in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rob1405 Very disappointing
We picked this hotel for relaxing weekend away. We arrived at 1600 on Saturday to check in to our junior suite room 1083. After waiting to get to desk for ten minutes we are told room not ready for 30 minutes. Left waiting with our cases in bar!
When we got yo room it is very hot, next to lifts and directly over reception facing main Stratford ring road. Not happy we phoned reception to try and get a move to a quite room. After 5 minutes give up as no one answers . We walk down to reception to be told a manager will be up, no one appeared. We went back down to be told only very basic toons available. So every night of our stay was a nice mixture of hen parties coming out of lifts, traffic and taxis coming and going.
We used spa which was tatty and run by two guys who paid no attention to anything and spent all time talking to each other and throwing towels .
Bar has been refurbished and very nice. Staff were fabulous in gar and only complaint was cost , small bottle of beer £5, ouch. Breakfast was very good as we'll.
Over two nights we spent £500 on a very very poor experience

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skipper47 First Class Stay
Enjoyed a one night stay at this hotel whilst touring the area . THis modern hotel situated on the banks of the Avon is an ideal place for visiting Stratford (3 minute walk into town from the hotel ) and the Cotswolds . Would recommend paying the small supplement for an "executive room " for the additional facilities and larger room size . Staff could not have been more helpful , courteous , friendly and very professional .Overall the service was excellent .
First class breakfast served in the main restaurant with lovely views of the river . Would recommend .

We took our Italian friends to Stratford and wanted a good hotel to show "the best of British". Whilst Stratford didn't disappoint our stay at the hotel made the experience even better. They were impressed with the food and the service.
An excellent experience and already planning another trip - with hubby this time

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Richyuk Beautiful Lobby and Bar Refurb
Since last staying at this property, the lobby, bar and restaurant areas have been refurbished to tremendous effect. Central position of hotel is what has brought us back to this property time and again and this of course remains a distinct attraction. Rooms now in need of some tlc - particularly the bathrooms, but would have no hesitation recommending this property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie44 A great weekend
We stayed at the Holiday Inn at Stratford upon Avon and the experience couldn't have been better. The location was great, just opposite the RSC, and the family room we had was amazing! Rather than tripping over pull out beds as normally happens, there was a set of bunk beds, just around the corner from the main double bed, so it almost felt like two rooms. The room was very clean and the beds were comfy. The breakfast certainly filled us up. The only but, and it is a little but, is that the pool is very tiny, and when we went for a swim it was full and they sent us away. However, they did phone us about ten minutes later and we got in the pool then. So only a tiny thing. Overall we had a lovely weekend in Stratford, and I would recommend the hotel completely.
