I have stayed in Stratford over 30 times but this was my first stay at the Adelphi. The parking is very convenient and Simon and Sue were very helpful. Simon carried our bags in and then provided tea and home made cakes in the dining room. We had a lovely, large ground floor room with a little patio at the... More

A short break for my partners birthday. Stayed at the Adelphi overnight and it was a lovely place. The room was lovely and the food was very good. Car parking to rear and walking distance for everything. We would definitely stay here again. Very friendly 😀

We booked a 2 night stay for our anniversary here and cannot fault anything. Met by Sue & Simon, bags taken to our room and then tea and home made cakes (gluten free ones for me) in the dining room. Simon showed us all the local attractions and places to eat on an easy to read local map. They could... More

Sue & Simon could not do enough for us from the minute we arrived, tea on arrival and Sue's home made cakes, Simons information as to the best walks to take, even offering to get me a wheelchair if I needed one, have recommended the Adelphi to my Sister as we could not fault it, we would return

The Adelphi Guest House is nicely located in walking distance to the local attractions and eateries. It was interestingly furnished, clean and tidy. Our room was comfortable, tastefully decorated, and stocked with lovely toiletries, and amenities. The breakfast menu gave a lot of choice (unlike at many B&Bs/Hotels), was well presented and cooked nicely, which was great since I am... More

The guesthouse is ideally located for the centre of the town but in a fairly quiet spot facing a small park. The guesthouse is delightfully decorated throughout, the room was spotless and large, and, the breakfast more than met our expectations. Fruit and sweetmeats were available in the lobby- tasty surprise. The proprietors were most welcoming and, while working hard... More

Thank you for this review. The Adelphi being in the centre is a bonus as once you have parked you can forget about the car. The park opposite is one of the many places given to the town by Marie Corelli, Stratford has a lot to thank her for. We will always offer advice on seats for productions especially if... More

The trouble with giving 5 star reviews to places as good as this is you may not be able to get in next time you want to book. For that reason it was tempting to go for a 1-star rating, but if anything Sue & Simon deserve a sixth star. We've been a number of times and its as good... More
