About Arden House

Arden House offers a country feel with all of the luxuries and comforts of home. Located near Stratford Upon Avon, the hotel has been modeled around Shakespeare and his famous works.

Each of the hotel's rooms have themes that are built around specific Shakespearean characters, but they all feature modern conveniences, including free Wi-Fi access and large flat-screen televisions, as well as desk areas for guests who may have to work during their stays.

Guests can ride horses around the nearby countryside, enjoy a good book in the library, stroll through the garden, or relax in the lounge.

Arden House serves in-room breakfasts for guests. The nearby Rasa Indian Restaurant offers Indian and Bangladeshi foods for guests to enjoy.

The hotel is within walking distance of the National Exhibition Centre, The Birmingham International Train Station and The Birmingham International Airport, which are both about a ten-minute car ride away.

Positive Reviews

A Great Location

This hotel is the perfect hideaway for those who are wanting to experience Shakespeare's legacy. The hotel is adjacent to several modes of transportation, including the train and the airport.

Wonderful Hosts

The hotel is run by a lovely couple and guests who stay here feel as if they are part of the family. Those staying with Arden are wakened each morning to the aroma of breakfast being cooked for them.

Loads of Extras

You can expect many extras that come free, or at a very low cost in comparison to some of the larger chain hotels. You will find snacks waiting for you in the refrigerator, as well as a kettle that has an ample supply of coffee or tea.

Negative Reviews

Showers Down the Drain

The hotel is an older home, so some of the plumbing and electrical are older too. Guests have remarked upon the inconsistency of the temperature of the water in the showers in the morning.

Settle Payment Early

As a family run hotel many guests have complained that they were not offered the same courtesies as they were accustomed to in a larger hotel, especially in regards to charging for the room prior to the stay.

Don't Stay Downstairs

Almost all would agree that the downstairs rooms are not as nice as the upstairs rooms. The downstairs rooms are too close to the kitchen and as a result can be noisy.
