Stayed 2 nights whilst going to the Cheltenham festival. Nice food, staff were friendly and Stratford is also a lovely place to visit. Room was noisy on the first night but that was down to the weather.

Hello Lynne This is the number that also connects to our call centre to ensure any queries you have are answered as timely as possible in the event that it falls outside of office hours. You can call our in-house reservations team on 01789 279988 between 8am and 6pm Monday-Friday? Our car park is monitored by Parking Eye and we do try to be as transparent as possible with the signage in the car park and at the front desk. There is a grace period of 15 minutes if you are here for pick-up/drop-off reasons. Unfortunately, I am not aware that we have had any recent outage with our internet. Sometimes, live streaming can be a bit tricky if it requires a larger bandwith, however, we have been OK with wifi as far as I am aware. I will look into it, however, am assuming this was an isolated case and I apologise that you were affected. Kind regards The Reservations Team
