Food and Drink
Our dining room is decorated with elegant furniture and fine art.
A full English breakfast or vegetarian option can be enjoyed.
We are holders of the Food Hygiene Inspection Silver Award.
We will recommend you the best restaurants and pubs in the vicinity for lunch, tea and dinner.
We will help with transport, if required.
Twenty minutes is the time it takes to walk from Victoria Spa down the canal towpath into the heart of
Stratford-upon-Avon. You will enter historic streets, view delightful shops, tea rooms, restaurants and the Royal Shakespeare Company
theatre, where brilliant stage productions are performed by world class actors.
A two mile walk in the opposite direction down the canal will take you to farm of Mary Arden. (Shakespeare’s
mother). Should you venture further along the towpath you could perhaps get a lift on a passing barge, whose captain might appreciate
your muscular assistance with one or two of the 54 locks between Stratford and Birmingham.
Nearby is the Cotswolds, home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the world. The magnificent Warwick
Castle and the spectacular Ragley Hall, seat of The Marquess of Hertford, are less than 30 minutes away.
The home of Anne Hathaway, who the Bard wooed and wed is a mile and a half from Victoria Spa and well worth the
We have six guest bedrooms all of which are currently being renovated and upgraded. Besides new décor, the
lighting will be improved, the carpets changed and new larger televisions installed.
We are reconfiguring and, in some instances, expanding the size of each of the ensuite bathrooms. All of them
will be powered now by a superior thermostat system to ensure a more luxurious flow of water.
As we want to make our guests feel at home, they will be invited to relax in the drawing room area with us.
Ancestral portraits and Georgian mirrors adorn the walls. In colder months, we usually have a fire blazing. Our collection of board games
is extensive. We have a snooker and pool table.
Victoria Spa for a Party
The drawing room is an excellent venue for a party as it can take up to seventy guests. The new landscaping
also allows for a large marquee. This puts us in the market for anyone seeking a well-appointed venue to celebrate a milestone event –
from a wedding to a birthday party. Enquiries about booking for such occasions are welcome.
As building work is still in progress we are reluctant to take bookings until close to the time when we can be
sure the work will be concluded. Our new tariff will also have to be considered. We will have decided upon these by January 20th. While we
are aiming for a relaunch on February 14th Valentine’s Day, that, just now, remains a hopeful aspiration.
Policy on Pets and Children
Unless they are one of ours, pets are a no (sorry).
Children are most welcome if well-behaved. Definition of well-behaved: not a biter, fighter, whiner, weeper or
screamer. As a fond parent, other relative or guardian, you make the fair judgement.
If requested in advance, a babysitter can be arranged.
