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

Having recently stayed at the Adelphi B&B, what a wonderful place to stay. Simon and Sue really look after their guests . The house itself is beautiful, lovely clean white bedding and towels,, comfortable bed and not at all noisy despite the fact it is situated on a main road. The cooked breakfast is superb. It would not be possible... More

We stayed for three nights and had a lovely time. Sue and Simon were so welcoming with tea and home made cakes on arrival. The room was very comfortable and quiet with a good ensuite. Breakfast had lots of choice, including choice for vegetarians. Simon made very interesting suggestions as to what we could do in Statford. It's really nice... More

Thank you , we love the fact you describe the Adelphi "A gem". The tea and cakes does seems to be appreciated and allows us to chat with guests, and help them get the most out of Stratford. We can also suggest less well know things to do if guests have time. Having the programmes is invaluable for background reading... More

Our second visit was just as enjoyable as our first. Sue & Simon go out of their way to ensure their guests are well -looked after and in our case gluten free needs are fully catered for. We have already booked for later in the year- just to ensure we do not miss out. Many thanks.

What a lovely review, thank you. We love seeing guests again and so it was a great pleasure seeing you all again. Gluten free is never any trouble. Sue is still perfecting her gluten free pancakes. We were just sorry there were no home-made gluten free biscuits for the rooms. There will be next time. Look forward to seeing you... More

A weekend theatre break in Stratford was all the better for staying at the Adelphi, a short walk away from the centre of the town and more importantly, the RSC.
