From day 1, I was treated like a princess with a lovely room and yummy breakfast. Being a vegetarian, I had enough options to choose from. The first day of induction was very useful which helped me plan my visit here as well as my day trip to Cotswold with a small tour group. The hosts referred me by my... More

I was picked up from the... More

My wife and I visited Stratford to see Othello at the RSC only had 2 nights at the Adelphi - we both wished it was longer. The hosts, Simon and Sue, were so helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived. The room was comfortable and spacious, providing a welcome rest after so much walking around this superb town.

Honestly couldn't have been better - I was in Stratford attending a conference, and the Adelphi was an idyllic base for the four nights I was there. Sue and Simon were perfect hosts, the room was comfortable, and the price was an absolute bargain. Among my friends who stay in Stratford the Adelphi breakfasts are close to legendary, and I...

By the building alone, Adelphi is a fairly typical English B&B. What really makes it stand out is the care and enthusiasm of the owners, Simon and Sue. They really go the extra mile and pay attention to the little details. From the moment we arrived, they let us know that they were happy to help us with any need... More

Thank you. We are so glad it was "One of the best b & B experiences" you've had. We love it when the little extras are noticed and commented on. It is fair to say our love of reading is reflected in all rooms having a wide selection of books. I hope the rest of your trip went well. Best... More

Stayed one overnight--the house was so lovely--the little details made it wonderful...many interesting books to read, fruits and cupcakes left for guests, skeleton keys, menu for breakfast, water by door, smelled great, and cozy room. The breakfast was delicious. We came in late, and Sue and Simon were so accommodating (even left a sweet note for us). Simon also gave... More

Thank you with "love" from Sue and Simon. We are so glad you enjoyed your brief stay with us. We were sorry not to be here to greet you , but had tickets to the RSC that night. Guests do enjoy the cakes and fruit in the hall, and Sue enjoys baking them. We are glad the directions worked well.... More

We travelled the UK and Scotland for a month, staying in many B&Bs. This was by far the best. The accommodations were fantastic, and I can't praise the service enough. The food was excellent, and the cost was below several others we stayed at. Both my daughter and I wished we had more time to stay there. Simon and Sue... More

We again stayed one night (this time) in room 2 (at the back of the large B&B) and were made to feel very welcome by the owners. (Previously we stayed in the room at the front of the property which despite being on a road, was very quiet too). The room has a comfortable large double bed and a separate... More

Thank you so much for writing a review. We are so glad you enjoyed your second visit and both rooms met with approval. All the rooms are different due to the age of the house and having original furniture and art work. The rooms at the front do have triple glazing to cut any road noise out. Decaffeinated Earl Grey...
