Returned to the hot for the 3rd for the awards evening. The club did a great joc organising this event as usual but the hotel was clearly understaffed for the event. Other than that room was good, food was good, bar was slow due to lack of staff. Check in / out also slow....

Dear SimonDee Thanks for your review. I'm glad overall that you had an enjoyable evening. I will pass on your feedback to the operations team with regards to your thoughts regarding staffing levels. We do try and anticipate the busy touch points when we host events of this size, so my apologies if you did not feel this was sufficient. Perhaps next year, we could facilitate a more seamless service with a pre-order to your table? Kind regards Susie Clayton-Carter Commercial Manager

Came for a dinner dance in the ballroom. Staff friendly but disorganized - many people got forgotten about food wise (just have someone double checking every person on tables have all their food!) other than that food was good and rooms very clean! Breakfast was superb -

Dear Ama31ng Many thanks for taking the tome to leave your review and for your top score following your experience at the hotel on Saturday evening. I have discussed your feedback with the Banqueting Manager who looked after you on the evening and he is not aware that there were any specific delays, only that there were a number of service challenges with some guests leaving the table for breaks or to approach the bar. This happens often at events of this size and when we work the room in a sweeping formation with food service and guests are not present; we do occasionally need to re-visit tables to ensure everyone is served. We look forward to seeing you back here again next year. Yours sincerely, Susie Clayton-Carter Commercial Manager

Couldn’t say anything negative about this hotel. From check-in to check-out we had a fantastic 6 night stay with 2 kids (15/10). It’s a great location, close to the shops, restaurants and pubs. We had two inter-connecting rooms which was great. The gym was frequently used by my

Quite often the conference you're attending will have parking included as part of your delegate package. Call the in-house events team at the hotel on 01789 279988 and they will be able to give you some clarity once they know which event is bringing you to the hotel.

Hi, is there disabled [ Blue Badge] parking near the door?
Yes there is. Parking is £6 per night. Not sure whether blue badge holders still pay this though.

Breakfast etc was nice. No issues and good sizes. But I would recommend one of the beautiful restaurants in Stratford.

Pool is small - which is okay so long as it’s not busy. The exec lounge is not worth the cost imho.

Is the executive lounge open on Sunday's?
It was certainly open at breakfast on the Sunday as we popped in briefly for coffee and juice.
