Stayed here two nights this weekend with partner to meet up with friends in Stratford. Location great, room very clean and comfortable with everything you need. It is very well thought out, even had some make up removing wipes in case you forget! Bed was very comfy and gorgeous bed linen and towels. Also very quiet - didn't hear a... More

Stayed here for the week end, the room was spotless, breakfast was excellent, the location is very good everything within walking distance and the owners are very friendly, the only minor moans are, the car park is a hundred yards or so down the road and checkout at 10am seems a bit early. I would stay there again.

I've recently got married and took my new hubby to show him the delights of Stratford upon Avon and the Cotswolds area in general as he had never been. I had no hesitation in booking accommodation at the Emsley Guest House. I stayed there as a lone traveller last year and they made me feel so welcome and so had... More

I stayed here last weekend with my daughter as we were going to see Two Gentlemen of Verona. We came by train and it was very convenient for the station. It is also only about a 10 minute stroll from all the attractions. Our room was comfortable and clean and well thought out e.g hairdryer, plugs and mirror in a... More

This was so friendly and welcoming from the start, that when we viewed the room we were even more delighted, wonderful decor everything spotlessly clean. With all amenities, even umbrellas if needed. Then the best bit was the food!! 10 out of 10. Perfect in every way.

I called the Emsley Guest House and no-one answered the phone. I called again and was immediately harangued for being a caller who had tried to book but hadn't given my home address. I tried to explain that I was not that caller and was told "I don't book people who have an attitude problem". Tried AGAIN to explain that... More

Staying in Emsley Guest House itself is one of our highlights in our 19-day UK-France holiday! Too many things to highlight what a joy it is to stay in our first B&B in England and I will find it hard to find another one as good. But let me attempt to share a few... 1) Location - excellent location where... More

This guest house in Stratford-Upon-Avon is wonderful! It is in a good location with easy walking distance to the main Shakespearean sites in town. Ray and Melanie were very welcoming and provided great advice about how to make the most out of our trip to Stratford. The room (and entire guest house) was super clean and really cute. The homemade... More

Lovely guest house in Stratford, we had 2 good size twin rooms. Rooms were clean and well equipped. The home made cookies were a very nice welcoming touch! Great location for walking into Stratford and the train station. Would recommend this B&B to anyone planning a trip to Stratford.

You will find it hard to find a better guest house. We were at the Emsley during a heatwave and had a room at the top of the house. Even so the fact that there were two modern tower fans in the room made our stay comfortable. The bedroom was immaculately clean and well supplied with soap, shampoo, body lotion... More
