Stratford-upon-Avon sets the scene for this timeless riverside retreat

Luxury Hotel in Stratford-upon-avon

  • A luxury hotel opposite the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre, with some rooms in its exclusive townhouse
  • Alfresco dining at the Waterside Brasserie overlooking the River Avon
  • Gentleman’s club-style bar and Champagne Bar that mixes classic and contemporary cocktails

The Arden Hotel

A redbrick manor with a boutique townhouse just a short saunter away – together, The Arden Hotel and Arden House are the stuff that Shakespearean dreams are made of. In fact, they’re named after the forest hideaway in As You Like It. Here you can dine alfresco by the water, take in the RSC theatre backdrop and begin evenings with a bang in the Champagne Bar.

Though town-based, staying in either property feels like a country escape. Through the white door of The Arden Hotel, heritage décor and contemporary furnishings, luxury and comfort share the limelight. Chesterfields sit beside floating fires and vintage-style afternoon tea gives way to fine dining evening menus. Blissful bedrooms can be in the main building or at nearby Arden House. In the latter, breakfast is served round the family-style dining table and there’s a pantry of help-yourself treats.

When out and about, take picnics to the riverbank or hire boats to go upstream. Peek inside Shakespeare’s childhood home, Anne Hathaway’s cottage or the stately houses and castles peppered through the county. Then wander to the theatre for a production by the ‘Swan of Avon’ – with a pre-play drink in The Arden Hotel Club Bar or complimentary ‘gin o’clock’ at Arden House first.
