The Arden Hotel is part of the following Inspirations:
"Situated just opposite the Royal Shakespeare Company’s main theatre in Stratford, the Arden is an ideal hotel if you’re visiting for a night of drama. This 45-bedroom hotel consists of two old Stratford buildings, one of which dates back to the seventeenth century and was owned by Flowers Brewery before becoming part of the RSC’s estate. The hotel’s club bar displays photos of various actors who have appeared at Stratford over the years including Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Helen Mirren and David Tennant, but it’s the lounge area where afternoon tea is served. Here you’ll find tea trays with traditional pink rose-patterned china laid out between leather sofas either side of the fireplace. The hotel offers the usual range of afternoon teas, including full afternoon tea with cake and sandwiches, cream teas with scones, jam and diet-busting clotted cream, and of course “Sparkling Afternoon Tea” with a glass of something fizzy. If you’re planning to go to the theatre and eat dinner afterwards, then Afternoon Tea at the Arden is a great way to prepare for the evening ahead. It’s also just a delightful way to pass the time in this comfortable, wonderfully located old hotel close to the River Avon."
"The Arden’s Waterside Brasserie & Champagne bar sits just opposite The Swan, Stratford’s first Shakespeare theatre which was converted into a space for Jacobean dramas in the 1980s. From the small zinc-topped Champagne Bar you can watch RSC audiences come and go. Even better, take your drink out on to the Arden’s brasserie terrace to enjoy the view. The cocktail list is full of reliable favourites - cosmopolitan, margarita, Singapore sling, Tom Collins, mojito – plus four kinds of martini and the delightful English Garden, which consists of Hendricks gin and a number of fruit juices. In the winter sit inside on one of the Chesterfield sofas, surrounded by black and white photos of actors who’ve performed with the RSC. Shakespeare may have said “The play’s the thing”, but so is the location."
"The Arden Hotel sits on Waterside which would have been part of the busy river basin in Shakepeare’s day. Now it faces the Royal Shakepeare Company’s Swan Theatre and we can be certain that Shakepeare himself would have stood on this very spot in the seventeenth century. Shakespeare's garden came all the way down what is now called Chapel Lane, a narrow road that separates The Arden from New Place. New Place was the home that Shakespeare built himself when he retired to Stratford in 1613."
"Global Gathering: Global Gathering has been drawing crowds of electronic music lovers in destinations as far as South Korea, Belarus and Russia – yet it all started in the glorious green fields near Stratford-upon-Avon. Not only is the area home to the world’s first global festival brand, but also the home of literary genius, William Shakespeare. And now, after you’ve had a good stomp, you can indulge your cultural side and stay directly opposite the famous Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre the elegant boutique, The Arden Hotel."
