Staying at Avonlea Guest House was a real treat. Close to all the attractions in Stratford, very clean and tidy and Rob makes an awesome breakfast! Our two children were also made to feel most welcome. We felt it was a great value for money stay. Thanks again Rob and Claire.

Happy to have stayed here recently. Location was excellent. Walking distance to the town proper - many food options. We got room 2. It was located at the back of the property so we slept well at night. Bathroom was clean - loved the shampoo and body wash! Rob and Clare took time to chat with us. Breakfast was yum... More

What a great place to stay! Our room was spacious with a king size bed and even though it was situated at the front of the property there was no road noise at all, which all made for a great nights sleep. The bathroom was a high standard and I loved the products provided. Location is great as we were... More

We stayed here March 6-8th, going to the Swan Theatre and looking round Stratford on the Saturday. This Guest House is very well situated, very well run by some very friendly people, and the room was comfortable, clean and the breakfast excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly return. - Vivien and Gary Morse

Avonlea is a lovely guest house! The parking was very convenient; the room was exceptionally clean and the welcome was warm. Added to this was a very hearty, tasty breakfast at a very reasonable price. We would stay again.

We have just returned from a one night stay at Avonlea, and we were really impressed. We were in a family room at the back of the house, with views of the butterfly farm and the RSC in the distance. The room was comfortable and with all the amenities you'd require, including hot water bottles! (Not that we needed them... More

Hello - just wanted to say I have stayed at the Avonlea many times and each time it is a lovely experience. The Avonlea recently won "The Pride of Stratford" and a really well deserved award that is. Rob and Clare go out of their way to make you stay as pleasant as possible. Another 3 trips planned this year.

Excellent room, with a very large comfortable bed. Tatsefully decorated. En-suite - well appointed, classy feel. However, very cosy. not much room. Whilst breakfast was good, did not quite come up to the standard of the room. Coffee was very weak.
