Just arrived back from a very relaxing 2 nights away at Avonlea. We arrived later than planned but nothing was too much trouble for our lovely hosts. Our bedroom was large, comfortable and very clean. Location was fantastic - just a short walk to the centre of Stratford and perfectly positioned for the RSC. Breakfast was delicious - everything we... More

Stayed with a small group for two nights. It is rare that I give a guest house a five-star review, but this one deserves it. Warm welcome from the owners, a charmng couple. When I complimented the lady of the house on the excellence of the mushrooms at breakfast, she said it was her husband's doing, and the secret was... More

Rob was extremely welcoming on our arrival and provided really useful advice on the best restaurants and bars. The room was comfortable and spacious and spotlessly clean, although the bathroom could do with updating. Breakfast was fantastic and could not be faulted with plenty of choice and of course the obligatory full English! Claire was really lovely and friendly and... More

We were made extremely welcome and Clare and Rob were very helpful with their advice. The bedroom was very comfortable and the service was friendly but not intrusive. We love Stratford and would definitely go back to Avonlea. Very convenient to walk to town, river and theatre and with the benefit of car parking space an added bonus.

A wonderful B&B located just round the corner from the river & the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Breakfast was a real treat and bedroom very comfortable though the road was a little busy. Thoroughly recommended & will definitely use again

Not sure if it was the service or the breakfast itself that was so pleasant. I had come down for a conference but it was lovely and peaceful at Avonlea, and very nice to get away from the conference noise and bustle. I'm definitely hoping to organise a return visit to go the theatre next time. Would make a lovely... More

We stayed at Avonlea for one night while visiting Stratford and seeing a play at one of the Royal Shakespeare Company theatres. As I live in Los Angeles, arrangements required several emails. Rob was extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions, ideas for things to do in the area, and directions. When we were held up by traffic on the motorway, he... More
