Hotel seemed very tired and in need of a refresh/investment - not enough being made of the public areas. The room - handle fell off a cupboard the first time I opened it, tea mugs/bedside lamps didn't match, light bulb in hallway not working, overall decor very tired. Service in bar also lacking - we returned at around 11pm/1130pm on...

Loved this hotel very clean & good facilities right in the heart of Stratford upon Avon. Marco Pierre White restaurant on site is outstanding & food was truly the best ever Italian we've had, so glad we weren't disappointed. Our room was overlooking Sheep street & did get a little noisy from passing traffic early in the morning but we...

From the moment we arrived in the car park, until checking out, our stay at The Shakespeare couldn't have been better. The manager was walking through the car park but stopped to help us park our car as he could see we were having a little difficulty finding a space. The hotel is beautiful & very romantic. The bar &...

Multiple roaring fire places with many cosy rooms to relax in. Car parking; £10 for overnight in the private car park, secure and...

Perfect location hotel but a continuous stream of irritations coupled with a shoe box size room (for a very high price), absolutely appalling sounds insulation and staff who quote "please read our terms and conditions" as a response to complaints. Highly recommend going to Stratford but this hotel ruined the experience. Try a different one. The only good thing was...

We've just returned from an overnight stay at the Mercure Stratford upon Avon. Overall we thought the hotel was lovely. Very old and quirky but we expected it to be and to learn some of the history of the building was really interesting. The hotel car park was very small and was already full by the time we arrived at...

Spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed it. I'm unsure about the somewhat negative comments regarding the building. If you want to stay in an ultra modern, soul less hotel then stay away! However if you want to stay in a hotel that oozes history and totally encompasses the whole Shakespeare experience then this is the place. Staff were wonderful,...

This hotel is a winner for lots of reasons but it's outstanding feature is location as it is right in the heart of Stratford and all the attractions are in easy walking distance. We stayed for a weekend in January and the hotel itself was faultless. It was spotlessly clean, both our room and the public areas, and we found...
