We have stayed here often, it is a good hotel in general, but this time we were let down. Waiting over 30 minutes for a cup of coffee was one thing but then we had the room experience. Initially it looked fine overlooking the Main Street so we caught the hustle and bustle. Night was however different. The Main Street... More

Four of us stayed at the hotel to celebrate my 60th birthday. The Shakespeare is an interesting hotel with historic features. It is in a good location in the centre of the town. Our rooms were very comfortable with tea making facilities and toiletries provided. Food was very good. The only fault was that the bar was not open during... More

Arrived with trepidation as I had read a couple not too good reviews and was very pleasantly surprised. We were greeted very warmly and professionally and given a very comfortable room in the old part of the hotel which is seeped in atmosphere. Everywhere is clean and cosy and all the staff friendly and helpful. If I had to mention... More

We had recently celebrated our Golden Wedding. Our daughter booked this long weekend so we could celebrate with her and her husband. The hotel is lovely. We had a super room. Everything was provided to make sure you had an enjoyable stay. Staff extremely pleasant and friendly. We had room service for breakfast which was excellent.

The hotel is steeped in history and is run very efficiently. The rooms are well equipped but the bathroom in our room which was in The annex was very tired! Some maintenance would not go amiss without destroying the look and atmosphere. Must compliment the effort to keep the old feel but this should not lead to lack of maintenance.... More

Dear MadforitalyPretoria Thank you for your review and your comments regarding the bedrooms in our Garrick room are well made - yes, they are some of our largest rooms, and yes, the bathrooms could do with a little work in them. I am hoping to add aircon to these rooms in the next few weeks....and also hoping you'll come back... More

This hotel has a perfect location, an easy walk to whatever you want to do. We had a junior suite, which was so spacious that I wished we were staying more than one night. The hotel is in a very old, probably "listed," building. This adds charm, but some halls and floors are uneven, as a result, and there are... More

This is my second stay and the reason we returned was because we enjoyed the whole experience so much last time. As with all of the Mecure hotels we visit service and food excellent and this hotel is so central.
