About

Arrow Mill is a 3 star privately owned property located in the heart of rural Warwickshire positioned directly opposite Ragley Hall close to Redditch the M42 Junction 15 of the M40 and nearby Stratford upon Avon. The grounds which cover over 60 acres have been landscaped for guests to enjoy pleasant walks among abundant wildlife or fish the River Arrow and onsite lake. The former mill has been lovingly restored in order to maintain the historic atmosphere whilst offering the most comfortable and pleasant surroundings to enjoy a break away. All bedrooms are spacious and designed to offer the utmost in comfort together with the ambiance to ensure a pleasant and relaxing stay for both business and leisure guests alike.

The freshest of ingredients are used sourced from the local area and Birmingham Market. The restaurant itself overlooks the beautiful lake to create a wonderful dining experience. The hotel prides itself on the location for weddings as the grounds are beautiful offering ideal scenery for photographs. The restaurant also offers a fabulous dining experience to guarantee a wedding or social event to remember. Please Note the restaurant is not open Sunday Evenings. The Arrow Mill was originally a working mill mentioned in the Domesday Book when it was valued at three shillings and six pence (17 p). Flour was made until the late 1800 s then animal feeds right up to 1964. There were working mills almost every mile on the River Arrow many years ago but most have become houses housing estates or sadly just simply vanished. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring Georgian Warwick and its world famous medieval castle as well as Royal Leamington Spa Stratford upon Avon and the Cotswolds. Other places of interest include Upton House and Gardens Stoneleigh Abbey Shakespeare Birthplace Trust The Royal Shakespeare Company Ragley Hall Packwood House Mary Arden s House and Country Museum Hidcote Manor Garden Hatton Country World Farnborough Hall Coughton Hall Charlcote Park and Anne Hathway s House.

Nice setting, horrible room
  2 / 10
As a venue for events, Arrow Mill is superb. The food is excellent and the staff (generally) helpful, the setting is beautiful with great views. The ground floor of the building has been very well restored and feels welcoming.

Unfortunately, the room on the top floor (where we were placed) was absolutely attrocious. There is no lift (ergo no disabled access) so you have to lug your baggage up several flights of stairs, which for me was difficult, with having a heart condition, and when I saw the room I could have cried - it was probably the poorest hotel room I had seen anywhere - worse than some £25 a night B&B's I had stayed in. The furniture all looked tired, the bed felt ancient, the decor was poor and the bathroom - disgusting. The shower was filthy, covered in mildew and when placed at head height had no flow of water - you had to crouch down and use it hand held, and even then I could have passed water faster myself. All for the supposedly 'reduced' rate of £65 because we were attending a weekend function! Would I stay there again? Never!

Exceptional Value
  9 / 10
Stayed for a wedding function and took advantage of their special two night stopover. A truly stunning setting and a fascinating old building. The food was superb, the service polite and efficient - nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation is comfortable and the decor is in keeping with this lovely old building. I shall return, probably with someone elses wife and my fishing rod.
