Stayed at this guest house on a whim. Walking down the street and looking for a place to stay.. Simon was outside up a ladder trimming his roses. Invited us in to review the house and first impression was stunning. The artwork and general decor was very interesting. The room was great... we scored the fabulous 4 poster!!! The supplied...

Sue and Simon, the owners, are very "hands on" and do everything possible to make sure you enjoy your stay. We had a nice room with a beautiful shower room, fluffy towels, good quality toiletries and excellent shower. We were offered a pot of tea when we arrived and there is cake and fruit available whenever you want. Breakfast was... More

My partner and I visited the pretty town of Stratford upon Avon over the long bank weekend and I was looking for a special and unique room to complete our stay, i.e. a four poster bed and a place which had a rustic and romantic look (as compared to the standard hotel stay), and I came across the perfect room...

Thank you. How nice to be referred to as "Courteous Hosts". The Adelphi is a home as well as a bed and breakfast so no two rooms are the same. So as you rightly say we don't follow the Hotel look. We love giving guests the opportunity to have refreshments on arrival, and then be able to talk them through... More

Had a lovely stay with Sue and Simon who are chatty, friendly, hospitable and run a splendid guest house with lots of extra 'touches' and thoughts e.g. fresh fruit in the hallway; heated rails switched on daily so that towels are dry (so often forgotten); lots of books around and available and, of course, mints in the bedrooms! Everything was... More

Thank you for this review and witty title. We are so glad you like all the extra touches. The cakes and fruit are very popular.

We had an excellent room, even with a little garden. The breakfast was among the best breakfasts I've ever had in a hotel or guest house. Sue and Simon gave us lots of interesting information and to-the-point recommendations, even when they were quite busy. We simply loved being there.

We attended the World Shakespeare Congress 2016. Sue & Simon were perfect hosts! Accommodating and knowledgable, but never intrusive. We would look for an excuse to base out of Stratford just to stay at Adelphi again. The Gingerbread alone is worth the trip.

The Adelphi became a bit like home as I booked a full week there and loved every minute of it. I much prefer a B&B to a faceless hotel, and for a very similar price I don't understand why you would choose otherwise. The location is fabulous, easy parking at the rear and unless you want a car to go... More

Thank you for this extensive review. It is lovely to hear it was "Home away from Home". It is what we aim for. We love the location as the car really only gets used when leaving Stratford.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will be warmly welcomed by owners Sue and Simon who aim to make your stay a friendly, comfortable home from home experience. The award winning breakfasts, made from quality, locally sourced produce prove very popular as do the home baked cakes. The rooms are decorated and furnished to a high standard in period style, reflecting the age of the property and the bedding is pure cotton of the finest quality. Great attention is given to detail, offering that little something different. We are situated opposite the lovely Fir Gardens and are only a few minutes walk from town centre shopping, Shakespeare's Birthplace, The Royal Shakespeare, Swan, and Courtyard Theatres. Anne Hathaway's cottage is also within walking distance of the house. ... more   less
