Hotel Indigo Opening 2019

Hotel Indigo Stratford upon Avon, formerly The Falcon Hotel, will open its doors at the end of January 2019 and officially open on 4 February after a multi-million pound major restoration project. The Grade 2 listed historic 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. Initially it was hoped the hotel could remain open whilst the extensive works were carried out, but due to the sheer scale of the project, the hotel closed its doors in December 2017. Now the decorative black and white half-timbered building is blended with modern, stylish, contemporary bedrooms, lounges, a restaurant and bar that provide guests with a unique boutique hotel.  Read more
