When is a hotel not a hotel?

When is hotel not a hotel? When it’s a private house hotel of course!


This new concept in accommodation is perfect for a hen party because you can take over the whole building an enjoy an exclusive stay.


Last week I lucky enough to enjoy a stay at the new private house hotel in Stratford upon Avon, Arden House Hotel.  This beautiful boutique hotel is the little sister of the nearby Arden Hotel, but there is nothing inferior about this amazing place.


Billing itself as a home from home, the idea is that you can treat the place as your own abode, even if you have only booked a room and haven’t taken every bedroom.  You can help yourself to free afternoon tea, free gin o clock and a night cap.  The hosts will happily serve you in the lounge or dining room, or you can take anything up to your room. Breakfast is included (avocado and poached eggs on rye bread, wow)


I have to say I love the whole idea.  It’s small so you don’t feel like just another number and it was super relaxing, not to mention beautifully decorated. There’s no restaurant but in the middle of Stratford who needs one?


Take a look at our video to see why we loved it so much.
