Such a pleasure to say in Claire & Rob's guesthouse. Both were extra helpful and couldn't have been more welcoming and attentive. The room was spacious, spotless, and well decorated. The breakfast was delicious and varied. The location also ideal for our jaunts to the RSTheatre. Thank you for for a fantastic time. We will be back next year!

just had our second stay and fantastic as always. Lovely clean room, warm welcome and great breakfast. You could not ask for more. The hosts are very friendly and make you feel at home and comfortable. Also walking distance from town. Would not stay anywhere else.

A few weeks ago I spent four days in my "home from home". It was not the first time and I actually try to get back there as often as possible as I am a theatre fan and the location so close to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre is just simply awsome. However, this isn't all: Rob and Clare have turned... More

We have already stayed at this great guest house several times and could not find a better place - run by a lovely couple, spotless accommodation with remarable attention to comfort and wellbeing - just a short walk from the theatres and restaurants - great starting point to explore Stratford and its surroundings. We hope to be back soon. Irmi... More

Lovely, friendly welcome from Clare when we arrived. Room was spotless, quite roomy and lovely comfortable bed. Plenty of tea/coffee facilities and Clare pointed out that if we preferred fresh milk we only had to get some from the fridge in the breakfast room. Breakfast was lovely and ingredients locally sourced and freshly cooked by Rob. Nice choice of cereals,... More

Staff were very welcome and the rooms were very clean and tidy. The information book provide was very handy to find out what local attractions and restaurants you can visit. The breakfast was good and cater for allergies and have vegetarian options. The B&B was was organised and run professionally.

We were met at the train station by Clare and taken to Avonlea. A beautiful, clean guesthouse just a few minutes walk away from the town centre. Comfortable, clean rooms, fantastic breakfast and a warm friendly welcome. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and I have even booked a return trip.

From before we arrived the service from Rob and Clare was exceptional. Knowing that we were arriving by train, they offered to pick us up from the station - and dropped us back there too. Our room was on the top floor, overlooking Shipston Road, but the traffic outside was not that noisy or disruptive. We had this as a... More

Beautifullly appointed room & a warm welcome. Great Breakfast. Hoteliers were so understanding when we had a problem with our daughter. Thanks for a wonderful stay be it a shortened one. Would definately book this B&B again!

We recently stayed here for a short break away. Our overall experience here could have been far better if we hadn’t been checked into room 5, which is a very small room. If we had checked earlier comments on Trip Adviser we would have seen that this room is considered to be a single room and only rented out when... More

Hello Davids-girl Firstly we are truly sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. With regard to the room you booked - as you mention, we offer our two smaller rooms when there is no other option available and as you were looking for 5 nights at relatively short notice I am afraid this was the only option...
