Welcome to The Arden Hotel, Stratford-Upon-Avon

Located in the heart of historic Stratford-upon-Avon, directly opposite the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company Theatres, The Arden Hotel is an elegant and sophisticated 45 bedroom boutique hotel in the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

The star of Stratford-upon-Avon’s hotel scene, The Arden's sophisticated and contemporary take on a boutique hotel has won her admirers from across the globe. With the RSC for a neighbour what theatre goer could ask for more?

Why stay at The Arden Hotel?

Well, it’s definitely because of our luxurious accommodation, the attention to detail and outstanding service. It may also be to make the most of our proximity to the Royal Shakespeare Theatres – so close that you can avoid the crowds and pop in for interval drinks. Perhaps it’s the all-weather terrace, cosy afternoon tea lounge or award-winning Waterside Brasserie.

The unrivalled town centre location, making every attraction accessible on foot, our private carpark and views over the Royal Shakespeare Theatres and the River Avon play their part, but it’s all of these elements combined that make The Arden Hotel such a unique destination. 


We are really excited and want to share our 2019 development plans with you.

We are currently refurbishing our Kitchen and throughout January will also be sprucing up and reshaping the Waterside Brasserie.

During the time of the works we will combine our A ‘la Carte and snacks menus, still with a wide choice and of course you can continue to expect the same attention to detail and seasonality you’ve come to expect in what we offer and all guests will be served in the relaxing surroundings of our Club Bar.

Our big reveal will be in early February and we’d be pleased if you came back then as well to see what we’ve done.

Please note that we will have restricted space for dining so we advise to book in advance in order to avoid disappointment.  

In order for us to be able to accommodate everyone during this time we will take bookings for breakfast, our team will ask you to book on check in or you can of course let us know in advance.

Alternatively, you can enjoy a full selection in your bedroom or if you prefer, breakfast to go.
