Avonlea was ideally situated for our trip to the theatre, a ten minute walk away. Our room was smartly decorated and spotlessly clean, and well stocked with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits. The bed was comfortable and we found it was an easy room in which to relax. The breakfast made for a good start to the day, with a... More

Enjoyed 2 nights at this beautiful B&B. You can see immediately that Clare and Rob have been in the hospitality business for a long time - our room had all the little extra inclusions that you like to have, and the breakfasts were delicious. The property had good off road parking, and was only 5 minute walk across the river... More

Lovely home, gracious hosts. He even carried our heavy suitcase up to our room. Super close to walk home from our late play. They made us dinner reservations when asked. Good communication ahead of time. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended. Spacious room for the area even with three beds.

A friendly welcome from Clare and Rob, a comfy bedroom; you come and go as you please (you have your own keys); and there's a perfect breakfast menu included in the price. There are little extra comforts in the room - and a bed that even Shakespeare's Henry IV ( famously sleep-deprived) would have slumbered in. The river and the... More

Friendly welcome by Clare and Rob. Room clean, spacious and bed very comfortable. Breakfasts very good, excellent quality of bacon, sausages, jams, etc. A short walk to the river and park. Would definitely stay there again.

Very friendly, clean well equipped B&B, excellently located for theatre and tourist sites. Breakfast extremely good with some interesting jams. Stairs to 2nd floor very steep so ask for ground or 1st floor if that is a problem.

Clair and Rob provided a wonderful retreat for me after a busy day of touring Stratford upon Avon. Meticulously clean accommodation, delicious breakfast and restful sleep was had in a thoughtfully appointed room. The quiet location and easy stroll into town combine to make this B&B a gem.

Lovely B&B that is situated a short walk from the town centre. We were made to feel very welcome by Rob & Clare. The rooms are clean, the bed very comfortable, the breakfast was amazing and good value for money. Would stay again.

Our hosts Rob and Clare have spent many years in the hospitality industry and it shows. They have a wonderful eye for detail. So Avonlea is an 8 bedroom Victorian terrace guesthouse less than a 10 minute walk into the centre of Stratford and with onsite free parking too. The bedrooms are very well appointed and breakfast is fine too.... More

Avonlea is the winner of the coveted Pride of Stratford Hospitality Business of the Year Award 2015, Coventry & Warwickshire Tourism and Culture Awards Best B&B/Inn 2015 and 4 star rated with Visit Britain. Located to the south of the river just five minutes' walk from the town centre and it's attractions including the RSC and Shakespeare's Birthplace. Avonlea has eight bedrooms with comfy beds in well-appointed light and airy rooms. We offer a superb full English breakfast using quality local produce. Guests are assured of a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. Special weekly rates are available. Free onsite parking and WiFi available. What really sets Avonlea apart is owners Rob and Clare's flair for hospitality. It's in their blood - Rob is the son of award winning hoteliers (English Tourist Board Hotel of the Year runners up among many other awards) and after attending catering college they met while earning their spurs at one of Lancashire's finest Michelin starred hotels and restaurant. They will make you feel welcome and relaxed, you will be impressed by their high standards of housekeeping and their attention to detail. We look forward to offering you a warm and friendly welcome to Avonlea. ... more   less
