The Stratford, A QHotel
Travel Blogs from Stratford-upon-Avon
I've read so many books set in old Oxford--so excited to be there! It was exactly as I pictured it. We had a 3 hour walking tour thru the University & it's many colleges. Really gorgeous. We got to walk into one college, don't remember the name until I download my pics. I have to admit I was most excited to see the Bodleian Library. It's so old …
Cambridge is bedlam today. Many streets are blocked to traffic as this is the weekend parents bring their bright young things to settle into the colleges as the new academic year begins for first year students.
It's a great place to be, but a little too many people for us. We'd prefer to come back and explore when there's less people …
... By 1920 he had 12 gardeners working for him. It took 30 years to create the whole garden. The style consists of creating various outdoor rooms separated by hedges and walls. Each room has it's own character or theme. So there is the white garden and a red one, a birch alley, greek "temples" fountains, topiary and gorgeous blooming flowers. You can just wander at leisure and spend the whole day if ...
Travelled from Edinburgh to Warwick. Visited Warwick Castle and Ann Hathaways birthplace. Ann Hathaway was the wife of William Shakespeare. She was 10 years older than him. Stayed at the Hilton hotel and had our farewell dinner. I ended up with laringytis and ...
... It is a listed building that the owners run as a B&B. The garden is lovely and we have a outdoor area to sit and enjoy the sunshine, which has been plentiful, much to the local's delight - they are sure Summer has arrived. The village boasts an 800 year old church and 600 year old stone bridge and is situated on the Avon river. Monday we spent in Stratford, soaking up the medieval history through the well preserved architecture. There are so many ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Stratford, A QHotel Stratford-upon-Avon
Although the rooms are a bit dated, they are clean. The staff were amazing and the food in the restaurant was great. Location was good also and there was plently of secured parking. Quite a cosy hotel. We were supposed to be meeting friends there and as they were ill, they did not make it. The hotel not only allowed our freinds to cancel without incurring any late cancellation fee, they also allowed us to cancel our final night there. I would say this hotel is good value for money.
We stayed at the Straford Victoria in October for a long weekend break.
This Hotel is excellent, we had very large rooms, the staff were first class, with a lovely atmosphere of warmth.
The food in the restaurant was very good and very reasonable. The position is very central and with easy distance of everywhere.
There are many wonderful eating places, but everywhere gets very booked up, so try to reserve in advance.
Stratford generally is quite expensive, but you expect that at such a wonderful tourist resort.
The wonderful Tudor homes are exquisite with Halls Croft, our favourite.
Warwick castle is also a must.
We came to this hotel after leaving the horrendous Holiday Inn Express in Bath (don't go there!) and were so relieved to be here. I felt like I could finally relax. Our room was HUGE, which was important with 3 small kids. The lawn in front of the hotel was a wonderful play place for the kids. Breakfast in the dining room was crowded, and the food was on par for the other 12 places we stayed during our 5 week journey. It was easy walking distance to the sights and tour busses - maybe 10 minutes walk. We loved it!
Stay at the Stratford Victoria for its central location in the town, we found loads to do there. It has a lot more character than most modern hotels and we liked the bedroom's comfortable bed.
Dinner is the restaurant was very pleasant, with the staff very friendly and made us feel welcome. We'd definitely stay there again.
I stayed at the Victoria overnight on business. Nice hotel, no complaints and would stay again.
We stayed at this hotel on a Friday and Saturday night at the end of October 2004. We are a couple with two children (ages 9 and 5). We stayed on a half board basis and paid in advance a half board supplement for the children. If you plan to eat dinner at the hotel this is much better value.
A bit on the gloomy side
Willing staff, nice meals but the dining-room while having potential is rather cramped and has the most hideous furniture, the chairs weigh a ton and are hard to push back.
There is very little in the way of lounge space to sit with friends in the evening and have a drink after dinner. We found it a bit on the gloomy side. The faux tapestries in the bedrooms are ugh!
A Great Hotel
We just returned from a tour of Britain and I must say the Stratford Victoria was wonderful. We only spent one night in Stratford with our three sons (ages 16,13,10) but wish we had spent two. The hotel is very impressive, clean and elegant and the rooms (and price) were great. The breakfast buffet was delicious. It's a quick stroll to the train station (easy even with luggage) and the town is right there. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. Rick Steve's guide doesn't make much of Stratford but we found the town not nearly as "touristy" as he describes and the kids loved everything. Don't miss Warwick Castle either!
Stratford Victoria is a winner
The Stratford Victoria is a business class hotel with a wonderful location. Only 1 block from the train station and two blocks from the city center. We stayed in a family room that was quite large. A full English breakfast buffet is included in the rate. The Hotel was built in 1996, is in great condition, and was built in the style of much of the rest of the town.
myself and my partner stayed in the stratford Victoria for a calm relaxed weekend in STRATFORD. On arrival we were made extremely welcome, the room available as we had not booked was a twin double it was superbly decorated immaculate and clean. Absolute first class accomadation at a fair price. It completley made our full weekend in Stratford a memorable experience.
