Our son treated us to a short break and picked Stratford upon Avon. What a great place to visit. Furthermore he chose the Avonlea guest house for our stay. What a brilliant choice! Everything about this guesthouse is top quality, the rooms, the comfort, the food and mine hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they made you feel like... More

We have been to Avonlea regularly for the last 20 years or so, from the early day's of Clare and Rob's predecessors. It has always been high quality and positioned ideally for Theatre trips, or general visits to Stratford. Clare and Rob brought a new freshness to the house and have worked hard, and very successfully to make Avonlea a... More

We have stayed several times at Avonlea when visiting Stratford for the theatre. We've always had a warm and helpful reception, a well-equipped, clean and comfortable room and an excellent breakfast. This B&B is also within walking distance of the theatres and is good value for somewhere so close to the town centre. Strongly recommended.

My wife and I stayed at Avonlea for two nights for a weekend away in Stratford and had a wonderful time. Claire and Rob were extremely friendly and accommodating, our room was lovely, the breakfasts were great, and the location was excellent - just a short walk into town and to all of Stratford's main attractions.

This was our second stay this year. Rob and Claire are upgrading all the rooms gradually and are just about to take a well-earned holiday. They are very welcoming and friendly and Rob cooks a mean breakfast! Rooms at the back are obviously quieter but all rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished. We'll be back!

My husband and I traveled in England and Wales with my brother and wife in early October. We decided only a couple of days before to go to Stratford-Upon-Avon and contacted Avonlea through email. Clare met us when we arrived and showed us to our rooms. They were very nice, sunny, extremely clean and looked like they had been recently... More

We have just returned home from a fabulous break in Stratford upon Avon. We decided to visit Avonlea having stayed there before a few years ago. This place just gets better. We booked over the phone with Clare who was really polite and professional, she offered us a good competitive rate and we booked straight away. We arrived and were... More

Rob and Claire are experienced and professional host and hostess. Our room was attractively furnished, with a very comfy bed and quite spacious (which is something rare in our experience). We were located on the street side but the room was nice and quiet. They serve locally sourced foods at breakfast. They helped us find the best attractions at the... More
