Mallory Court

Shakespeare’s England has announced a number of new hotel openings for 2017, including a new Hotel du Vin and a Crowne Plaza Hotel.

In addition to the new accommodation, a number of Shakespeare’s England’s existing hotels will see improvements and refurbishments made to them.

New hotels

A new Hotel du Vin will open in Stratford-upon-Avon with 48 bedrooms. The hotel will be the second for the chain in the Midlands, and facilities will include a bistro du vin, meeting and private dining rooms and a banqueting room with the capacity to seat 80.

Elan Spa at Mallory Court will open in March. The luxury spa will have a separate entrance to the hotel providing a secluded setting for guests. Elan Spa will use ‘the latest energy efficient techniques and state of the art design’ to create a spa in keeping with the listed building.

The former Holiday Inn in Stratford-upon-Avon has undergone refurbishment works to transform it in to a Crowne Plaza Hotel. The hotel, which is set amid landscaped gardens beside the River Avon, has had all 259 bedrooms upgraded and enhanced.

Improved hotels

Arden House in Stratford-upon-Avon opened in November last year as a new venture for the Eden Hotel Collection. The intimate boutique guesthouse (sister property to a hotel called The Arden) is described as having a relaxed home-from-home atmosphere and dedicated ‘house hosts’ who offer a 24-hour service for food and drink. 

Radcliffe, one of Warwick Conference’s conference centres has announced plans for a major refurbishment that will include accommodation updates. Situated on the University of Warwick campus, the centre’s refurbishments will include a new heating system, improvements to the bedroom, bathrooms, public bathrooms, and lounge and meeting rooms. 

The Macdonald Swan's Nest Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon will refurbish 20 bedrooms. The remaining 48 rooms were refurbished in 2008 but will also be re-decorated.

In addition, the Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel will reveal its brand new suite plus, and will undertake a full refurbishment of the 11 bedrooms in the Manor House, recreating their original Tudor style features. The 94 bedrooms in the modern extension will also be refurbished.
