The Stratford, a Qhotel, Stratford-upon-Avon
It was a rare case when I did not chose hotel myself, I was invited to stay there. I was glad I had been.
Location: The hotel is in a great location, a few minutes’ walk from the center of the town and close to the railway station. There is a green area around the hotel.
Reception: The check in was ok, even though we arrived late as a group. They did everything they could to accommodate us as quickly as possible.
Room: clean, not very spacious, but nicely decorated. As all British hotels had tea and coffee making facilities and a complimentary bottle of water. Also free wifi.
Meals: breakfast included, wide choice, appealing restaurant interior.
Facilities: I had no opportunity to use any other facilities.
Drawbacks: I had a room on the top floor so the ceiling of the room was skewed which gave it a feeling of narrowness.
Date of stay: October 2015
Price per night: about 180 Euros
Booked at: not booked by myself
Tip: Do not choose a room on the top floor.
Dorsett Shepherds Bush, London
I had to find the hotel for one night weekend stay in London just few weeks in advance in October. The prices were quite high already and after some consideration I made my choice for Dorsett Shepherds Bush. I have been in Hammersmith area before but not exactly in that place. Initially it was hard to find because it was not on the street I have imagined it should be. It is located close to the Westfield shopping centre and near to the two underground stations: Goldhawk Road (Circle and Hammersmith and city lines) and Shepherds Bush (Central line). It is not very close to the other tourist attractions, but not also very far away, some 20 minutes by underground. One thing you should know when booking this hotel that many rooms face the inner area of the hotel and do not have the outside view at all. I enclose the hotel plan in the gallery for you for better understanding. My overall stay experience was nice. I liked the interior. My room was without breakfast booked through booking.com website for 123 GBP.
