“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

Girls weekend away. Room good size, single duvet on a large single bed ok as long as you did not move in bed!! Long queue for breakfast on Sunday morning but good selection of food. Drinks at the bar ridiculously expensive. Overall would definately recommend.

Myself and my husband enjoyed a one night stay, this being our second visit to the hotel and I can say that from the last visit eighteen months ago the hotel is still as fabulous as the first time we stayed. I originally chose the hotel as I liked the look of the rooms and its proximity to town. The rooms are modern and well decorated. We had a double on our first visit but recently stayed in a deluxe double which was lovely. Staff are very pleasant and our full english breakfast was very enjoyable. If you are to have a short break in Stratford I would highly recommend this hotel, its a short walking distance to all shops/restaurants and I know if I visit Stratford again, this will be the hotel I book!

The Q Hotel Stratford is very handy for the railway station (and the hospital but I hope you won't need that!) and about ten minutes walk from the theatres - five to the town centre. A bland modern building set back from busy roads but with the advantages of purpose built efficiency and double glazing.

We were allowed to check in early which was very welcome. Front desk service was always polite and friendly though we often saw queues waiting to check out in the mornings so perhaps a few more bodies need to be on duty then.

Our room (3rd floor twin) was pleasant and spotlessly clean with comfortable beds. Good bathroom with shower/bath. Someone had got a bit over-excited about design and put vast hanging lamps over the beds which look trendy but make it impossible for one person to read while the other sleeps.

Breakfast was a buffet of cereals, really fresh fruit etc, cold meat and cheese and cooked breakfast on hot dishes. This seemed a bit tired, especially the scrambled eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms - all bland and watery. Good breads and pastries available.
Good service with just the right level of attention.

My one big gripe in this hotel is the air-conditioning. I presume this has been installed to reassure foreign tourists. But Stratford upon Avon is a mild place, not very warm in summer and not very cold in winter. It does not need air-con. But not only do you have it, you can't get rid of it. I switched it off over and over again but it kept kicking back in. I opened the windows which had warning labels saying this would turn off the air-con - but no, it tried to moderate the entire world temperature. So all night long the otherwise quiet room had the soundtrack of a heathrow airport hotel as the air con constantly whirred up to speed and then clicked off again.

What a pity. If not for this I would come back.

I am disappointed to read that the air-conditioning disturbed your stay, this is seen to be an advantage in most cases that we have air conditioning, however I do appreciate your comments and it should have been capable of being turned off completely and we are currently investigating this. I am pleased the rest of your stay was enjoyable.

I took my mother for an overnight stay as a early Mothers day treat, however, we enjoyed our stay so much we decided to extend our stay for another night. The first thing that struck me was how friendly all the staff were. They are an absolute credit to the hotel and it's owners. The room we were allocated was 233, a lovely decorated room with a contempary bathroom and both were spotlessly clean, thanks to the hard working cleaning staff. We had meals in the hotel restaurant both nights and it was faultless, not to mention delicious. This hotel is by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in (and I've stayed in alot). Thanks to all the staff for making our stay such a pleasure. Rest assured we will be back soon.
