Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Grosvenor Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon
Well presented, comfortable, excellent location.
The Grosvenor is part of the Best Western chain on the one-way circulatory system in central Stratford, so is very accessible by car; it has has quite a large car park, but this can be full by 7pm. It is situated only a 5-minute stroll from Stratford town centre, and another 5 minutes will get you to the Canal Basin, River Avon and the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre; it really is an excellent location. On the walk into town you pass the Stratford Upon Avon canal which is always rather busy with interesting leisure traffic - you can help with the locks, if you feel so inclined!
It is located on a busy road, so rooms on the road-front side are likely to be rather noisy; most rooms, however, are to the rear of the hotel, away from this road, and so do not have this drawback. We had a family-size room which had obviously been recently refurbished; it was very nice, and we could not fault it.
We used the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner, and were very satisfied. Dinner prices, including the set menu, were reasonable and we enjoyed our meals.
Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Good location and comfortable
Spent two nights B&B at the Grosvenor while enjoying a super weekend in Stratford. Hotel convenient base to leave car and walk into the town. Offered an upgrade to superior room with AC and fridge, water and newspapers for £10 - well worth it. Enjoyed a superb 4 course meal at the Georgetown a malaysian restaurant on Sheep Street - highly recommended.
Nice Surroundings and Ideal for the Town
Just returned from The Grosvenor, excellent hotel just a short work to the River / Theatre / Town.
Room was very good, recently re-furbished with new decor and furniture. Overlooking the local school (Half term break so can't comment on school term noise etc)
Evening meal - excellent. If you book the DBB deal you are allowed £18.50 towards the A La Carte menu if you don't fancy the Table D'hote.
Breakfast - excellent.
Service in restaurant- top class
Smoking allowed in the bar , which should change in the future.
All in all an excellent hotel, you are allowed to leave your car in the hotel car park if you wish to explore Stratford on foot.
We had picked this hotel as previous reviews and photos seemed to point out that this was a "reasonable" hotel. Well l HAVE major doubts. When we arrived they had a "special" that you could upgrade to their new deluxe room for only â¤10. This room had a fridge, air conditioning etc. So we decided to upgrade. Firstly the fridge was warm, and the heating was stuck on. We complained about both items but were told there was nothing they could do. The hotel has obviously undergone MANY extensions in its life and the place is quite literally a maza of corridors. We found other guests laughing as we wound around in search of our room...!!!
WE decided to go down to the lounge for a pre-dinner drink. We tried to get attention from the staff but they basically ignored us. Another couple were also waiting to order drinks.....he was also getting quite irate. Eventually my husband went to the dining room and told them that we were all waiting to order drinks. Some 15 minutes later someone eventually showed up. I must say the the meals were quite good. The final down side though was at checkout when my husband refused to pay the â¤10 upgrade considering that none of the items included in the upgrade were working. The receptionist refused, so my husband asked to speak to the manager. He was in the net room and refused to come out, happy to send messages thru the receptionist. In the end we left without paying the extra charge.
I am sure that there must be other places with better service in Stratford. We wouldn't stay here again.
Great location, pleasant hotel
Hotel had a great location, just 5 minutes walk from centre and river. Car park extends to rear of hotel, we had no problem. We had booked a room with air conditioning and it was needed for the summer nights. Good breakfast room, good food and good service.
Nice hotel, excellent location
A lovely 3 star hotel, located within 2 minutes walk of the town centre and 3 minutes of the theatres. Plenty of parking available without additional charges. The hotel is very well maintained and clean. The rooms are a little small but nicely decorated. You could have upgraded to an Executive room for an additional £10.00 per night. This gave you larger air conditioned room - how much larger I'm not sure. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfasts were pleasant although I'm glad it was included in the room cost because @ £11.95 for a full english and cereal I think I would have been finding a suitable cafe close by.
For a couple of days break in this lovely town you can't go far wrong.
Position just right
Stayed one night this week and explored Stratford whilst partner was at a conference. Hotel clean and comfortable and our small suite at the back was really quiet. Breakfast fine but this hotel really wins for its position. Easy walk to town centre and all tourist attractions.
Good location, good hotel
The Grosvenor is an attractive hotel just blocks from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre -- while not luxury accomodations -- it is a good value. You're also within close walking distance of Will's birthplace, shopping and restaurants.
I would avoid the nearby Red Lion Pub for food -- it's a set menu from something called Brewers Fayre -- and is not good quality. I'd look for some options on nearby Sheep Street.
My friend and I recently stayed sat the Grosvenor Hotel. We booked it through the internet. The location is great for touring Stratford Upon Avon. It is a 5 minute walk to the theaters and about a 10 minute walk to everything else. There are plenty of reastaurants and other tourist facilities nearby. We upgraded to an air conditioned room. (It was unbearably hot while we were there.)The desk personnel were friendly and more helpful than the official tourist information office. The only real disadvantage of this hotel was reaching the rooms on the ground floor. We had to go up a flight of steps, cross the length of the hotel and go down another flight of steps to get to our room. A case of " you can't get there from here." But I would recommend the hotel highly.
Very nice hotel
Just a quisk note to recommend the Grosvenor Hotel, Stratford. Very friendly and helpfull staff in all areas of the hotel. Food was excellent and the rooms although a bit small were very clean and well maintained. Only a 3-5 minute stroll to the centre of town. There is also a lovely Thai restaurant oposite but I recommend you book as it is quite small.

And so after a long flight - 12+ hours - we arrived in Paris, grabbed a quick drink and then on to Birmingham. Unfortunately, Pat's suitcase decided to stop off in Paris but will hopefully be delivered tomorrow! Back to a sunny UK, with a temperature not much cooler than Hanoi yesterday, where the blossom is in full swing. Lots of memories of a lovely holiday. ...
... our way and arrived without too much delay to check in. Luggage was booked straight through - hopefully we would see it again in HCMC.
A short flight to Paris before we boarded Air France plane for the long flight to Vietnam. We dozed a bit, read a bit and watched films a bit to while away the time. Somewhere along the way we lost 7hrs in time difference and most of Thursday. And so we arrived - not sure if it was Thursday or Friday - ready to start our adventures. ...
The job? Live in caring. Basically, you live with people who need day to day help, usually to stop them from having to go into Homes. Its usually for elderly people, but also for disabled people too, so they can be quite young.
I had to do a week of training at Stratford-Upon-Avon (SUA), which from my research in Australia, was where Shakespeare was born and lived. I didnt know much else.

... As an English teacher, this was obviously a very significant stop on our tour itinerary. Like Warwick, I had visited Shakespeare's Birthplace and Anne Hathaway's Cottage in high school, but I expected the stop to have added significance this time. Since my previous visit, a large visitor's centre had been built adjacent to Shakespeare's childhood home and this is where our tour began. Our group was treated to a short video highlighting Shakespeare's work ...
... and the reins fitted between the fingers; very rich women had fine gloves made from the skin of new-born goats, very white, very fine, easy to get dirty, and they were just for show – hence the term ‘being treated like kid gloves’. The section minder said gloves were a fashion statement: our man William would take off his riding gloves and tuck them into his belt, choosing another of several pairs tucked in just waiting for the right occasion to ...
