Hotel Indigo Stratford upon Avon, formerly The Falcon Hotel, will open its doors in February after a multi-million pound major restoration project.

The Grade 2 listed building, which dates back to the 16th century, has been painstakingly restored over an 18-month period and is the biggest refurbishment in the hotel’s long history. The original property was a private dwelling for 150 years after it was built, before it became a hostelry. Now, the hotel shares its neighbourhood with William Shakespeare’s School and Birthplace, as well as one of the most famous theatres in the world, The Royal Shakespeare Company.

The hotel has 93 rooms, which are designed on three themes, each inspired by the history and locality of the town. The Georgian Townhouse rooms offer a touch of luxury combined with homely charm and present a sophisticated and elegant look and feel. The Tudor Rooms, which mainly offer views over the site of Shakespeare’s New Place, celebrate and embrace the authentic architectural quirks of the original 16th century property. The Contemporary Rooms, which are built in the newer wing, offer a sophisticated and elegant design. Of the 93 rooms, 76 are standard rooms, 2 are accessible, 12 are superior and 3 are suites.

Within the hotel there will also be a very special restaurant: The Woodsman, run by Mike Robinson, who owns London’s only Michelin starred pub. The restaurant, with its own entrance off Church Street, will celebrate honest British food with theatre and gusto.

The hotel is located just 5 miles from M40 J15, A46/A429 exit and only 28 miles from Birmingham International and 92 miles from London Heathrow. Stratford upon Avon railway station is only 0.6miles from the hotel. For more information about Hotel Indigo Stratford-upon-Avon please visit https://stratford.hotelindigo.com/
