Official star rating:
Ideally situated in the heart of town, just a couple of minutes’ walk from Shakespeare’s birthplace and the RSC, this former gentleman’s club and registry office now sports classic Hotel du Vin style – slick rooms with dark blue walls and sumptuous beds, a buzzy bistro and a pleasing sense of indulgence.
The cherry on the cake is the outdoor terrace; an oasis from the tourist bustle outside the door, serving drinks and dinner outside for as long as the weather allows.
This is a great choice for those wanting a cosy yet stylish boutique, somewhere slick and unfussy, that’s walking distance to all of Stratford’s main sights.
