Reviews - Macdonald Alveston Manor

4AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
Banbury Road,Stratford-Upon-Avon,Warwickshire , Stratford upon Avon, CV37 7HP
The Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel and Spa, with its beautiful gardens, is just a short walk from the centre of Stratford and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Many public areas of the hotel are located in the Manor House, parts of which date back to the 16th century. The attraction of the Alveston Manor hotel is enhanced by its extensive Tudor panelling, leaded lights and Elizabethan staircase. It also boasts a vaulted cellar, which leads to a mysterious underground passage once used by monks from Worcester.

Bedrooms are located in a modern wing, which adjoins the Manor House and offer all the modern comforts such as Air Cooling, flat screen televisions with freeview channels Should you wish to upgrade your accommodation, there is also a selection of feature rooms and suites in the old part of the Hotel many of which offer old beamed ceilings and Half Tester or Four Poster Beds. Free wifi is available in all public areas, meetings rooms and guest rooms.

The AA Rosette award-winning Manor Restaurant pays homage to dishes with a modern French influence, and is the perfect way to end a day of sightseeing or business. Many theatre loving guests like to enjoy a starter and main course before departing for the theatre, later returning to the hotel for a dessert.

Enjoy our superb leisure facilities at Vital Health & Wellbeing. In addition to an 18 metre swimming pool, there is also a well equipped Techno Gym, Sauna and Steam Room. Should you prefer to pamper yourself there is also a range of treatments available at Vital Beauty (charges for treatments are applicable)

weekend getaway
The location of the hotel is very convenient within the town center; easy to find.
Prices for the dinners and breakfast were very high therefore we decided to have both breakfast and dinner in town - bigger variety and flexibility that way; and cheaper.
The room we have been allocated had visible marks on the ceiling showing that at one point the room has been flooded from above (water stain) and some of the sealant around the bathroom fittings could have been cleaner. Otherwise a comfortable room with free wifi.

Overnight stay for Shakespeare
The hotel staff were very courteous and friendly but not intrusive. The breakfast was outstanding and would set you up for the day. The hotel was clean and tidy but a little tired - needs a lick of paint - but this did not effect our enjoyment of the stay.

Location just over the river from the theatres. Staff, many of them local young people, really helpful and friendly but also well-trained. Luxurious beds and bedding. Pool facilities very good.

Stratford Stay
This is the second time we have stayed at the hotel at the reduced rate. The proximity to town and the added bonus of the pool, sauna etc. make it an easy and enjoyable experience for seeing the sights Stratford has to offer. The parking charge of £5 is slightly annoying and they still haven't changed the signs!

Stratford break
Plus points - friendly service, convenient but quiet hotel location with pleasant rooms and nice grounds and atmosphere.
Negatives - room a very long way from reception with quite a few steps and no lift - not offered help with luggage. Notice in car park said free for guests but told £5 (credited after discussion). Didn't like scones with afternoon tea although wife thought not bad.

Good value for money but looking tired!
Stayed with friends for a two night break. The room was clean but it's looking tired. Doors were damaged at the bottom, bath mat old and grubby and air con kept switching off every half an hour. Positive the bed was comfy and the staff were excellent from reception to waiting staff. All spoke to you and smiled and were happy to chat. Value for money it's fine and the original building and grounds a superb. Tried the spa but didn't feel £37 for a pedicure was good value and it wasn't a particularly good one but that could be down to the girl that did mine! They seemed busy in the spa so maybe my bad luck. Would I stay again, yes but only for a one night stop off.

Lovely Hotel
The hotel itself is beautiful, but the room we stayed in was disappointing as it did not reflect the rest of the hotel. It was very small and not in keeping with the decor of the hotel. It was shabby. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and the food was delicious. Location is perfect. Just need to upgrade the rooms to reflect the decor of the hotel

alveston manor stay
Breakfast a little disappointing and bacon was not cooked very well on the first day, so had to ask for it to be well done on the second day.

Characterful hotel - just needs a few tweaks to improve
We stayed for two nights in June 2014. Lovely room with exposed beams and an oval-shaped window was well presented. Free wifi and good aircon in the room were welcome. The spa was pretty good and we would stay again. Downsides were a pretty weedy shower and I don't think I'd bother eating there again. Room service breakfast had no butter for the toast, the sausages were only cooked on one side. Breakfast in the restaurant the next morning still had no butter and the food wasn't that great.
We did like the ambience though - and some lovely grounds made the stay very enjoyable otherwise.
