We spent an excellent night at the Emsley Guest House in September, easy to find, well situated and on arrival we were given a pot of tea which set the mood perfectly after a long drive from Leeds! As a party of 3 we had a twin room and a double, booth of which were very clean and comfortable. We... More

Perfect location to see the stunning sights of Shakespeares country (or in our case go horse racing) after a fantastic breakfast to set you on your way and a chat with the really friendly, family with some good recommendations on sites, local restuarants and inns. After which you can relax in the lovely clean and warm room. Really can't rate... More

The owners gave us a really warm welcome (we arrived quite late) and offered us a drink. We were shown to our room and everything was pointed out to us. We had the Warwick room, a HUGE family room with a double and two singles (it was just the two of us) so we had loads of space. The room... More

Hi Sarah, Thank you for reviewing our Guest House, we really appreciate it and we are sorry you were not impressed with the vegetarian choices. I would just like to clarify the breakfast options for any vegetarians who might be put off by this review - we always have Quorn sausages, fried or scrambled eggs, mushrooms, beans, fresh or tinned...

I would recommend this guest house to anyone looking for very clean accommodation, a great breakfast, and a location that is close to all amenities, but is quiet. We had a very warm welcome and wouldn't hesitate to book again

The owners work hard to make this place as clean and comfortable as it is and it shows. The rooms are immaculate, the situation is excellent. The breakfast is of a very high standard and the service first rate. We were offered a pot of tea on arrival, our cases were taken to our room and everything was done to... More

My wife and I stayed just the one night at the Emsley guest house in Stratford. Staying overnight in Stratford was part of our planned wedding anniversary holiday in the UK, i.e. a stop-over en route to Bournemouth and Eastbourne. Having previously researched Stratford guest houses on-line, the Emsley had received very good reviews. We were not disappointed! On arrival... More

Emsley Guest House is a 5 minute walk from the train station, and within easy walking distance of every major sight in Stratford. We stayed in the York room which, while small, was immaculate and well-appointed. It also had the advantage of being the first room one reaches when going upstairs, cutting down the amount of work required to haul... More

Stayed for two nights with my mother and granddaughter. We had a very warm welcome and were shown to our room, the Suffolk. Very clean and comfortable with plenty of space for us. Although the en-suite shower room was very small we also had use of the bathroom next door to ours, so it did not detract from the facilities.... More

We spent two nights at the Emsley on our visit to Stratford-upon-Avon. The location is perfect! We were literally five minutes walking from the train station and from the center of town. Ray and Melanie are wonderful hosts. Ray carried our heavy bags to our room, and then brought up a pot of coffee and biscuits to help us settle... More
