      Historical Traveler Reviews Menzies Welcombe Hotel & Golf Course Stratford-upon-Avon

      Second stay and just as good

      from

      Another two night stay for business - I got the four poster bed this time! very comfortable hotel with attentive service. Breakfast is excellent (even as room service).

      One thing to AVOID is the lunch they serve in meeting rooms. It is the worst value party food I have ever eaten. There were 6 of us in a meeting and they charged 17.95 a head for what amounted to a few pizza slices and a plate of deep fried breaded nibbles. Dreadful, but this is not indicative of the restaurant food which is excellent.

      If you want to avoid the overpriced hotel restaurant then get a taxi (10 minutes) to Baraset Barn in Tiddington. Excellent gastropub in wonderful relaxed surroundings.

      Definitely stay there again!

      from

      Stayed there for two nights in March 2005 for the bank holiday weekend. We arrived in the afternoon and checked into a room in the main building. The size of the room was average, but the bathroom was big with new and modern fittings. The grounds were beautifully kept, and we wandered around the hills in the afternoon. Stratford-upon-Avon was only a 20 minute walk away along the roadside. We booked the dinner, bed and breakfast package online, and it was such an excellent offer. The dinner had 5 courses and the portions were way too big for me (I'm a 5"3 size 6/8 girl). Even then, it took a lot of willpower not to try and eat all the food I was given because everything was so delicious. Breakfast was fantastic. We got a table by the window that overlooked their garden. The a la carte breakfast (included in the package) was sumptuous, and they definitely do the best scrambled eggs I've come across. Smoked haddock might appear as an odd thing to have for breakfast, but I was glad I had it. For dinner I was even slightly disappointed that they had changed the menu because I couldn't decide on what to have the previous night and thought I'd be able to have it on the second. Again, the service, the wine, and the food were faultless. I'd definitely go back again, and would recommend their DBB package.

      Great stay

      from

      I stayed at this hotel as part of package which included 2 rounds of golf, not only did this package respresent excellent value, but I found the hotel to be of a high standard.

      The rooms where clean and of an good to average size, the staff helpful and accomodating. The menu was varied and the food well presented, and would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel

      Great room, good food & service - couldn't fault it!

      from

      Checked in at 10.45pm on a sunday evening in preparation for a 2 day meeting being held at the hotel. Receptionist was welcoming - didn't even have to tell her my name as I was the last to check in & she greeted me by name!

      Room 3 on the ground floor was fab. Large bedroom with the bed all turned down ready for my late arrival. Fluffy towelling robes and high quality toiletries. Large bathroom with a really deep bath and powerful shower. Perfectly clean.

      Room service sandwich (at 11pm on the Sunday) and breakfast was spot-on as was dinner in the Trevelyan restaurant. Attentive service from unobtrusive waiters.

      Lovely warm cosy surroundings in the lounge.

      Hotel seemed to be popular with well-to-do golfing crowd - plenty of posh cars in the car park!

      My ONLY complaint would be that room 3 is not a good room to be in if you tend to walk around hotel rooms in the nude. The lack of net curtains in both the bedroom and the bathroom could have been potentially devastating (especially as golfers were using the path that passed by the window!!). You had to have the curtains closed in the bathroom during the day unless you wanted to parade yourself sat on the toilet!!

      My Perfect Wedding Day

      from

      Absolutely wonderful service, excellent food and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

      Unfortunately the hotel seems to be marketed to business users so the weekend is vitally deserted but as a local we knew this was the most attractive view in the whole of Stratford, it would be a shame to miss it.

      Valentine heaven

      from

      We stayed here during the valentines weekend and found it amazing. When you first view the hotel going up the driveway it is breathtaking and makes you feel part of the jetset! The grounds were beautiful and they had a wonderful log fire that you could curl up sitting by.

      The hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. The restaurant food was ok and staff perhaps a little undertrained but that may be because it was a very busy weekend.

      The hotel is in a good location from Stratford upon Avon centre and close to Warwick Castle which we visited.

      The only downsides were that the rooms were quite small and we were given a zipped up twin bed rather than a double. Plus they didn't have a gym / spa that was advertised on the wedbiste I booked on.

      Other than that is was an amazing stay and very memorable. I hope to visit again and experience the hotels luxurious surrounding...

      A Terrible Shame

      from

      For such a beautiful hotel in such beautiful grounds I have never come across such unaccomodating staff. For a 4 star hotel we certainly wern't made to feel as if we were the customer.The hotel was nearly empty and I can see why.

      Superb country house with wonderfully kept grounds!

      from

      The Welcombe Hotel is a nice country house with wonderfully kept grounds. Reception staff and the concierge were extremely friendly and helpful. You will definitely need a car to tour the area or even visit the Stratford-upon-Avon town centre as the hotel is >3km (2 miles) away. The hotel restaurant also provided excellent meals with generous portions and room service was quick and comparatively cheap. Only letdowns were the absence of a gym and VERY inexperienced and undertrained restaurant and bar staff.

      Absoloutely Great

      from

      I loved this hotel - beautiful grounds, excellent, excellent service....

      BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE

      from

      Beautiful hotel, beautiful grounds. Rooms are on the small size w/o air conditioning but windows are big and breeze was blowing through. Staff was very helpful definitely worth a stay!!

This is a great way to spend the my last few weeks travelling! I'm definitely happy to be here with family, even if I'm not used to the cold yet! I do miss the sunshine and beaches!

Struggling in with the 96 Kilograms of luggage ( each ) they couldn't help notice the large pile of online shopping left in the spare room ( I accidentally left the door open .. oops !), it seems that while away on holiday the lady of the house had continued shopping online, so being the responsible people ...

London on a summer's night is pure magic and all we could do was join the crowds and become part of that magic. We're really here! After a couple of hours of gazing upon the surreal scene, Big Ben tolled the late hour, we slogged back onto the Tube and stumbled into our beds.

      ... The Virginia Lodge turned out to be in an ideal location, quite close to the centre of town, and absolutely adorable. I have the attic room. It is just charming. This morning, I woke up to granola and yogurt and an American coffee (not a bad go at it either). I had decided to walk around for a few hours exploring prior to meeting up with a guided walking tour recommended by Rick Steves, my trustee guide book. About 600 meters into my exploration, I ...
