Spent a couple of nights at this well-placed traditional B&B, (5 minutes from the station, 10 minutes walk to Anne Hathaway's cottage and about 25 minutes walk into town), with ample parking (unusual for other B&Bs in the area). The owners were kind enough to let us leave our car on their premises even after we had checked out, which saved the agony (and cost!) of parking in Stratford.
Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable, and although on the front of the house (Room 1), we were not disturbed by any traffic noise. There was a good range of drinks provided on the hospitality tray, along with biscuits; these were replenished daily, as were the towels. I would agree that the ensuite was small compared to some hotels we have stayed in, but it was perfectly adequate for our needs and we were provided with a selection of quality toiletries.
Breakfast was a treat: a range of cereals to help yourself to, followed by juice, fruit (the spiced compote was delicious!), toast and a very tasty (and plentiful) English cooked breakfast (locally sourced where possible). Any special requests were accommodated with a smile - nothing was too much trouble.
Our hosts, Barbara and Giovanni, were welcoming and helpful, giving advice on where to eat (and where to avoid!) and the best routes to various places. They even gave us a bottle of bubbly to celebrate our anniversary (the reason we were in Stratford). Thank you so much for a lovely break. We'll be back!
