We had a last minute change of plan to enable our daughter to stay as her boyfriend had let her down . The owners were very accommodating and the problem was sorted without issue . Other than that the guesthouse is ideally located for the town and the racecourse and is very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and...

Stayed here midweek for one night with our toddler. Lovely, clean room with en suite and walk in shower. We were on the ground floor next to the kitchen and dining room so were a bit dubious about noise but didn't hear a thing! Breakfast was lovely, had a full English cooked to order and then cereal, fruit juice, fruit...

We spent 2 nights at the Avocet Guest House. Diana was an exceptional host-so pleasant and helpful with our stay. The breakfast was fantastic! Our accommodations were excellent and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Perfectly located and short walk to everything. Thanks Diana for your great hospitality - you really made a difference in our stay!

We were the only ones in the guest house--it was very quiet. Nice views from the second floor over Stratford. We bought food to fix to save on expenses and used the kitchen. Everything was very clean. It was easy to walk to all attractions. The television didn't work the first night, but the caretakers fixed it after we told...

My family and I stayed 1 night in Penshurst Guest House in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The owner, Yannick, was not at home when we first arrived, but the friendly lady from the guest house next door (Linhill - looks like a nice place too) let us in and helped us to get settled in. The house and room were clean and cosy,...

Ignore the previous comments, its all change for the good at the Penshurst !!! We have stayed in dozens of small guest houses and know what we like and should expect. We have just come back from a weekend in Stratford, taking in Warwick Castle and Shakespeare Country. We went last second, nearly everything was booked (needed a family room)....

Owner Karen was very helpful but not often seen. Frequent loud arguments between the owner's family members were unpleasant to have to listen to; we were horrified at the level of shouting and fighting between them that was so loud we could hear it from our room. This happened on more than one occasion and was of particular concern because...

sprogs, Owner at Avoncot Guest House, responded to this review

What is there to say, other than emphasising the fact that Penshurst does double as our family home? We have 3 children and the third has been a nightmare through his late teen years. Rebellious, argumentative, untidy, volatile, explosive! Last year, in particular, was extremely stressful when he went completely off the rails in many ways. Many families go through...

Have just returned from visit to Stratford-upon-Avon. Had a great time, and so glad we stayed at Penshurst despite our misgivings. Karen gave us a lovely welcome, she was so friendly. She gave us all the local information of places to visit, the best restaurants and time to eat at, made sure we had a parking space etc. The rooms...

I was so interested in the concept of a self-catering guesthouse as none of us are big breakfast eaters, plus with children it's nice to have the flexibility of a kitchen on site. We booked into the second floor, two rooms - a double for us and a twin for the children. First impressions NOT great, since no one was...
