I had the pleasure of staying at the Emsley Guest house recently on a brief trip to Stratford. Ray was a fantastic host, the room was very tidy and well presented and I received a fantastic breakfast in the morning. Location was also fantastic. Ray was full of excellent advice about things to do and see in Stratford. Highly recommend.

This is a fantastic family run bed and breakfast. Ray, Melanie and Hayley make this place home away from home. They are genuinely nice and helpful. I have stayed twice whilst on business at Warwick university. Only 20-25 minutes drive. I will stay again! Very clean, food is great. Lots of nice personal touches...Melanie's biscuits are a treat.

Hi Mara, Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review, it means a lot to us. Thank you for commenting on the WiFi signal too. The booster is in the room you had, which is why we were surprised another reviewer in the same room recently said she was unable to get onto the WiFi! Anyway,...

Booked Emsley Guest House the night before travelling (last minute decision to go to Stratford). Very happy with our choice. Warm welcome when we arrived, fantastic room (spotlessly clean) and one of the best breakfasts we've ever had (including home made jam & marmalade). From the minute we arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel very...
