Used a groupon offer and really enjoyed it. Pleasant room. Spa facilities were was excellent. Overall good value for money. Near to Stratford-upon-Avon and warrick places to see. Would recommend.

Stayed her for a business meeting. Though address startes Stratford upon Avon it is about six miles outside of town in the village of Ettington. Arrived by train at 9 PM with no taxis in sight. Perhaps these things would be a lot less of an issue if you are traveling by car. Room was large but bathroom while updated was dark. Restaurant has very short hours, luckily our taxi driver was kind enough to stop so we picked up take out before heading to hotel.

This was our second visit to this hotel which is convenient for visiting nearby friends. On this occasion, while breakfast was great, we were disappointed with other aspects of the hotel.. Rave The breakfast is excellent. Fantastic choice and a super smiley and helpful breakfast manager. This was a huge plus after a miserable night. Criticisms: 1. The room This was fine -quiet and comfortable and plenty of space BUT but the room was cold. There was no thermostat with which to warm the room up, neither were there sufficient bed covers. One rather thin duvet. I could not sleep for the cold. Please please give your punters some extra blankets so that they can sleep. This is a basic requirement! The bathroom floor looked grubby in places but this may just have been due to tired tiling and grouting. More of an irritant however was the soap dispenser by the basin. This was not fit for purpose. Either it was not sufficiently full or it needed to be replaced. I had to climb into the bath to get soap every time I wanted to wash my hands! 2. Reception: We had wanted to advise reception of a later arrival.than expected but despite several attempts to phone during the late afternoon and early evening, the telephone was never answered. We found this surprising. When we did arrive, we were advised that breakfast would end at 0930 the following morning. In fact, being a Bank Holiday, breakfast continued to be served until 1030 so we could have enjoyed a more leisurely wake up. Reception should have known this. Overall, we felt that our stay was okay value for money but, with a little more attention to detail, it would be brilliant. We did not find it surprising that the hotel was much less full than on our previous visit and hope that the management can return it to the standard of excellence that we enjoyed on our previous visit a couple of years ago.

Very nice hotel very clean food very good service very good very good facilities nice and quite bed very comfortable room nice size lovely grounds long off the road plenty of parking good place to visit surrounding area

Stayed here for a break in March. On arrival we were pointed to where our room was eventhough there were two people in reception. No help with luggage. Room was very cold which is unusual for a 4* except in reception area and older part of hotel. The pillows were so old and lumpy we asked for a different type but none came. Tv came out of the ark. Maintenance team need to sort out their tap washers - ours leaked both hot and cold as well as in public loos. No info about the hotel in the room nor surrounding area. Breakfast was acceptable usual buffet style with a lot of choice. Dinner was disappointing more like fast food than an upmarket restaurant. Seems place is geared for conference and wedding business. Very disappointed.

We booked this up from an ad in a national paper,it was for 2 nights with breakfast and on the first night a 3 coarse meal. We were impressed a nice double room a nice looking building with lots of free parking. Our food was great with lots of choice on the buffet was so nice we dined the the next night with a different menu. The buffet breakfast was great with a lot of choice,and the staff were all very helpful and efficient as was the manager. Drew and mary

There was free WiFi, ample parking, a gym, lovely restaurant and the rooms was well appointed. The staff couldn’tbe more helpful. The food was very good, I had dinner and breakfast lots of choice and reasonably price.

Had a deal on Groupon with overnight stay with breakfast and 3 course evening meal. Lovely room, had a relaxing swim & jacuzzi in the afternoon, the hotel is predominantly a business venue but still very good for families, lovely greeting & explanation of venue. Evening meal was a buffet as well as breakfast. Only bit of downside was as leaving reception, never even asked if we had enjoyed ourselves or safe journey home, but only a small hiccup

We have just returned from a visit where, without notice, the restaurant was closed until 8.15, after which a 'restricted menu' was available, sausage, meat pie, fish and chips etc.. The conference centre kitchen was overwhelmed by two parties at 6.30 and 7.30, of apparently 27 and 60 people. It was pathetic that a conference centre kitchen couldn't cope with 87 staggered set menu meals, at least 60 of which were chicken. There were only eight other guests dining. On our return I cancelled a further booking for April, and although we have been a few times in the past the food and service has so deteriorated that we won't be going again.

Have just returned from a'Murder, Mystery weekend including a 2 night stay at Chase. Worried about some previous reviews, I requested an upgrade as it was my husband's birthday. With a smile and efficiency we were quickly checked in and allocated room 12. It was spacious and spotless (bedroom and bathroom) . The bed large and comfortable, very clean bathroom and lovely view of the front entrance and scenery beyond.As the Beast from the East was returning the room was lovely and warm. As we were part of a group we had separate dining away from the restaurant, so cannot comment on the food served there. Our food, both evenings, was excellent with varied choice of starters, mains and deserts . i have o say I REALLY loved the roasted beetroot and goat's cheese filo tart. Breakfast was taken in the restaurant and there was always a plentiful choice of hot and cold options. The hot buffet never looked dried out or as if it had been sitting there forever.Given the weather I was hankering after porridge but that was a minor point. Decaf tea also available and hot chocolate upon request.The staff were friendly and quick to clear used crockery and cutlery and were so polite, a credit to the hotel.After an evening of murders and intrigue, the bar stayed open until 12.00 but we were asked and able to purchase another bottle of wine to sit and drink at our leisure.To the right of reception there was a lovely comfortable lounge, to relax in. The bar area is spacious if a little anonymous . This brings me to an important point. The Chase Hotel seems ideal for corporate functions. There are several meeting rooms of different sizes to suit different purposes and complimentary tea/coffee stations doted around. The sweeping drive to the front door passes the newer hotel block and could be construed as looking a bit like a nurses home, or the back of a premier inn or travel lodge. It is set in lovely scenery and the main building houses the elegant lounge and winding grand wooden staircase. The staff and management are superb a big 5* to them. It is not necessarily somewhere I would chose to spend a romantic beak, but it was absolutely perfect for the 'Who Done It' weekend
