We had such a wonderful stay that we decided to come back for another night. The guest house is very centrally located and the owners are very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in multiple hotels and B&B's during our visit to England and these rooms were the most comfortable, clean and tastefully done. The breakfasts are tasty and Sue's cooking... More

This was the first time I've ever experienced B&B accommodation and let me tell you, I don't know why I did not do this sooner. Sue and Simon were just the most hospitable hosts from the moment I phoned for reservations, to checking in right through to the moment I left. The room was very clean, had it's own bathroom,...

We booked this hotel for our first visit to Stratford based on good reviews from TripAdvisor. We give it a 5 star based on the reasonable price. The owners were very helpful. They prepared the breakfast every morning above expectations. For the price, we thought the room was nice and clean and comfortable. Finally, we like the location as it... More

Superb. Very welcoming couple - pot of tea and home made cake on arrival. Well furnished room, comfortable bed and pillows, QUALITY bed linen and THICK towels. Large bottle of chilled water left outside your room at night. These are just a few of the many "little extras" that in my mind made this Guest House stand out. Quality breakfast... More

Sue and Simon are impeccable hosts. Their lodgings are spotless, and furnished to perfection. Their assistance on arrival (even insisting on carrying my overweight luggage up the stairs for me) was unexpected but very gratefully received. Their advice on entertainment and meal venues was spot-on. Their up-to-date knowledge of quality and prices was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable, the... More

"Home away from Home" what a wonderful title for a review. Thank you. Carrying luggage is all part of the service and we joke it saves Simon on gym membership as it is his weight exercise. We try and cater for all palates. (Vegemite is very popular) It was a pleasure having you and your daughter staying. We hope you... More

I stayed at the Adelphi for two nights and was made to feel most welcome. Simon and Sue are charming and are clearly dedicated to making sure that their guests enjoy their stay with them, and their time in Stratford. The room was very comfortable, with free wifi and nice toiletries. There is free parking, which was a real bonus... More

Thank you for "welcoming and Comfortable rooms"review. It is always lovely to hear that guest s find the rooms comfortable. The water delivery has been known to raise a smile. We do wonder what guests would do if there was a flood, just think another bottle of water? It has been known that the water was put in a "hot"... More

Had a great stay with Sue & Simon, made us feel really welcomed, offering us a cuppa, Simon gave us a run down on places to visit, Sue whipped up a yummy breakfast, a real delight. Very lovely stay, highly recommended. Enjoy.

Thank you for this review . We are wondering which element was not up to standard or not recorded. It was kind of you to take the time in your busy schedule getting to the family wedding to write a review. w hope all went well and the ankle improved. Best wishes Simon and Sue More

As good as ever...and at the Adelphi that is very good indeed. Particularly good for anyone in Stratford for an RSC performance. It's a few minutes walk away, but more importantly your hosts are aficionados and fellow guests are likely to get into discussions over breakfast as to the relative merits of performances. Add to that a welcome that makes... More

What can we say, thank you for this lovely second review "As good as ever". It is always a pleasure to have you all to stay. We love discussing with you past, present and future productions of plays, whether at the RSC or other venues. It has also amused us that you book here first then the RSC. Till the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We were so glad you chose to celebrate your anniversary with us. It is always nice to know the little extras are noted.
