We stayed at Avonlea for our anniversary in May for two nights. Rob & Clare were perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful. The guest house is in the perfect location for all the main attractions but at the same time it is very peaceful. The breakfast was gorgeous, full English, cereal, fruit and a choice of very tasty homemade jam!... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Avonlea. We cannot fault the Guesthouse at all. We were met by Rob, who kindly carried our bag up 2 flights of stairs for us. We had a family room, which had a double and a single in, it was very spacious with everything we needed. This was at the... More

I stayed at the Avonlea Guesthouse in April and it was absolutely lovely. Rob and Clare were delightful and looked after me really well, and my room was perfect. If you are visiting the Theatre and spending a few days sight-seeing, the location is great.

My wife and I stayed at Avonlea B & B recently and we cannot praise it highly enough. On arrival we were met by Clare who showed us to our room. It was a double with a very comfortable bed. The ensuite bathroom was immaculate with a good range of toiletries. There was an excellent choice at breakfast, both hot... More

We turned up at the wrong Avonlea and only realised when we were told they had no booking for us. It was totally our own fault but it is worth warning others to be careful not to make the same mistake as we are not the only ones to have been confused. We enjoyed our one night stay at this... More

We stayed for one night as we were both in need of a "get away" break and found this lovely B&B. Our room was ready when we arrived which was great. We were given information of local pubs, restaurants.. nothing was to much trouble. Room was quiet and comfortable. Shower welcoming and warm. Tea/Coffee and lovely biscuits made it feel... More

We stayed at Avonlea for two nights in May. Claire was on hand when we telephoned ahead and she explained where we could find additional parking (behind the property). We were met out by our car and welcomed. Our room was lovely (double, first floor), and we both slept very well in the comfortable bed. Both long life and fresh... More

We spent one night at Avonlea and highly recommend it. Our room was quiet and spotlessly clean, with a very large comfortable bed. Nice modern bathroom with large shower cubicle (the hottest we could get the shower to run just bordered on being hot enough but might not feel adequate in colder weather!). Kettle and tea tray with lovely biscuits... More

Hello mahonia Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are glad you like our bathroom it is one of our newly refurbished ones. With regards to the shower it does have a safety button to stop it being turned up too high by mistake, this needs to be pressed to allow it to go hotter. Thank you for... More

Hi Mrs R Thanks for your review, we are glad you liked Room 1’s bathroom, it is one of our two newly refurbished ones. We have another 3 being refurbished in the same style at the end of the year so it is good to hear that guests are enjoying them. We hope to welcome you back to Stratford again... More
