A waterside retreat in England’s theatrical heartland

  • Al Fresco dining at the Waterside Brasserie overlooking the River Avon
  • Champagne Bar that also serves classic and innovative cocktails

The hotel in detail

An elegant redbrick manor set beside the river in Stratford-upon-Avon, The Arden Hotel sets the scene for a luxury break. The Royal Shakespeare Company theatres provide a prestigious backdrop, making this boutique the perfect place to take in world-famous culture. With a bar and waterside brasserie waiting in the wings, there’s plenty of ways to relax, too.

Inside, heritage-inspired furnishings contrast with contemporary touches, creating a classic country escape with a modern twist. Take it easy in your room, cosy up by the fire in the lounge, or head out onto the terrace and to dine on seasonal specialities. Then sip something sparkling at the champagne bar while looking out for famous faces from stage and screen.

Named for the idyllic forest hideaway in Shakespeare’s As You Like It, The Arden Hotel makes a wonderful base for learning more about ‘the Bard’. You could discover his birthplace and wife Anne Hathaway’s cottage, then visit his final resting place at Holy Trinity Church. After dinner and cocktails in the exclusive Club Bar, stroll across to the Royal Shakespeare Company to catch the great man’s work.
