Dear Guest, We are very sorry if you found the carpet dirty on arrival, the reception desk is open 24h and we're more that welcome to offer you a different room. Regarding breakfast I'll pass your feedback to the Bistrot Pierre team, but I can assure you this is not usual practice I have spoke with the relevant team to ensure this does not happen again.

Clean, confortablw rooms, but not a place for a relaxing stay. The staff make it their mission to be unhelpful, rude and distruptive. Expect to wait ages for service in the reception, bar or restaurant. Don’t even try and get a coffee on site after 10:30.

Lovely room. Enjoyed our visit to Stratford upon Avon. Lots of things to visit and plenty of cafes & restaurants to choose from. Breakfast was too expensive in the hotel , so we ate out for breakfast
