... an old nursing (sorry Nurse, not so old) friend of Mandy's last night and is was like nothing had changed in the years since we saw Lizzie , so thank you Lizzie it was a fun night as always. We are now enjoying being back with Christopher and Caroline who are very social and we have caught up with an old school mate of Mandy's and her husband. And today we are enjoying being with Mandy's nephew Rupert and his lovely wife Zoe who are about to be first time parents. And so it ...
... as we will be camping in between hotel stays. The plan is to upgrade and renew a few of the things that wear out over time so we end up with something über reliable. For those who know a thing or two about 4x4 cars, this has full time 4 wheel drive, electronic diff locks leather seats and will seat 8 comfortably, though in our case it will be two plus a boot full of things you need when doing a trip like this.

... thought hmmmm. I wasn't going to be too irrational so I thought I'd wait a few hours, wait for some of the couch surfing responses to come back and if I didn't get any response by the end of my shift at work then I wouldn't go, and since hostels are too expensive there, couch surfing really would be the only way I would go. Ok well, shift ended and there I was standing outside All Bar One after midnight, no one around but a few drunken stumbles passing by, checking my email ...
... bus lines. Transfer points were available at Morten-in-Marsh and we were fortunate to be there on market day. The market hall is situated in the middle of the main street. Vendors and hawkers called out the specials for the day, each trying to out-shout the other--it was great fun listening to strong accents from different regions. I could scarcely understand what they were trying sell. Later I realized that ...

We got chocolate ice cream for dessert, like we do at every restaurant. We left Stratford Upon Avon after dinner and headed to London.

Historical Traveler Reviews Menzies Welcombe Hotel & Golf Course Stratford-upon-Avon
Second stay and just as good
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.
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.
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
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!
My Perfect Wedding Day
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.
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.
A Terrible Shame
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!
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.
I loved this hotel - beautiful grounds, excellent, excellent service....
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!!
