I am a regular customer and I can honestly recommend this hotel, I stop in various hotels due to my job and I always stop at the Stratford hotel! The staff are fabulous nothing is too much trouble, very welcoming, the only minor criticism is if they had a small gym facility then they would get 6 star rating from me. The hotel team has made many improvements the grounds of the hotel which has really modernised and brighten the surroundings.

We were let down by a hotel in Stratford and was redirected to this one. This is the best thing that happened. The staff were really helpful, welcoming and pleasant, the hotel was clean and peaceful, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be looking at staying again.

This was our 1st visit to the hotel. We were on a 5 day self drive holiday, a break for myself and my husband. The help desk lived up to their title with the help they provided when I booked the holiday. We needed a room with a shower and not a bath and were allocated Room 20. This room is designed for people with a disability and has excellent facilities. It is a ground floor room located opposite the reception and dining room. The staff were all very kind and friendly and helpful. Thank you.
