“flying the flag for the white sails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2008

After staying in Stratford many times & always being disappointed with the accommodation White Sails has changed this.

Stayed in the Stratford room which was spacious & very clean, excellent to have the mini fridge, a nice touch you do not see in B&B's very often.

Breakfast was excellent - scrambled eggs were cooked to perfection.

Will deffinatly return & have already recommended to friends

We found the White Sails by chance while cruising Stratford looking for a B & B. It had plenty of parking space, looked good and was excellent in all respects thereafter. We will stay there again when we next visit the U.K.

We stayed at the white sails for 2 nights in March 2008 for our wedding anniversary. I can honestly say that this is the best guest house I have ever experienced and I doubt that anywhere else will compare within this price range.

This place has all those simple but important details right. For instance, the bed is luxurious; in fact I was tempted to ask where it had been purchased from! There is a fridge with water and a jug of milk so no running out of annoying UHT minature milk cartons. The rooms have individual temperature control units. The bathrooms are perfectly designed and...well they speak for themselves. Finally there is your hostess who made us very welcome and cooked us the best breakfast served on quality dinnerware. So many B&B websites use the words de-luxe and luxurious which turns out to be completely untrue and mis-leading but the white sails can use these words in confidence. I just wish all B&Bs and guest houses were this good.

We've just returned after spending a night at White Sails and the only disappointing aspect is that we didn't stay longer! This truly is the king of B+B's. Both Jan and Roy (the owners) certainly know how to treat their guests - from the attention to detail of the rooms to the gorgeous breakfast; I promise you you won't be disappointed. My husband and I stayed in the Stow and my sister and her husband stayed in the Kenilworth - both rooms were excellently presented with all the trimmings!

This is by far the best B+B we've ever stayed in. Thank you Jan and Roy - we'll be back!

We loved our stay at the White-Sails. Everything about it was perfect in every way. Janet and Roy (the owners) were extremely kind and attentive. The room was excellent. The breakfast was superb.

The B&B is a short walking distance to the center and the RSC (+/- 15 min.). This is a great place to stay while visiting Stratford-upon-Avon.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night on the 8th August whilst visiting for Hamlet. The room itself was almost as good as seeing David Tennant on stage.

Although White Sails is a little a out of the centre, the owner kindly organised a taxi and the cost was only around £3 each way - well worth it when you don't emerge from the theatre until after 11pm.

What sets this b and b ahead of the competition is
1. it's attention to detail and standard of cleanliness
2. The unbelievable breakfasts - which are worth the cost of the room itself

Whilst you may feel that the cost is £20-30 more than other Stratford b and b's - it is absolutely worth it. Don't condsider staying anywhere else.

We stayed here for two nights on the 17th and 18th August and had a wonderfule time. After a very stressful few months we felt we needed to get away for some R&R and we got it! We stayed in the Kenilworth room which was lovely and Jan and Roy were excellent hosts where nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were fantastic. So much fruit to choose from I was in my element, not to mention the home baked fruit cake, chocolate muffins and gorgeous home baked bread, that was before you started on the fried breakfast. I am very fussy about where I stay but can truly recommend this wonderful B& B and I'm sure we will be back soon
