We were visiting Stratford to see a play (of course) and made it a two day break. The hotel is perfectly sited for visitors as it sits diagonally across from the archeological dig that is Shakespeare's house and walking distance to both the RSC and Swan theatre's. The hotel provides visitors with everything that is needed to make the stay enjoyable. We were in Room 3. It is full of character and clever use of space means that there is both a bath and a separate shower cubicle. The bed was huge and very comfortable and hard to leave in the mornings. Although there are many places to eat in Stratford, especially by the riverfront, we chose to eat at the hotel. Everything we ate was delicious and a great deal of care had obviously been taken in preparation and service. The staff in all areas of the hotel were lovely and clearly well trained. Not only did they possess knowledge about the history of the building but had knowledge of the local area. They are a credit to the owners.
I would advise anyone who is thinking of visiting Stratford upon Avon to stay here. We are planning to return in the very near future, if they have any rooms left!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This recently refurbished boutique hotel is housed in a 400 year old listed building in the heart of Stratford upon Avon. Located opposite Shakespeare's school, among the ancient half-timbered buildings the town is famous for and only 2 minute's walk to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. This is THE place for a pre-theatre supper - local pianists play at 5.30pm daily and the atmosphere is great. The 12 funky en-suite bedrooms vary in size, cost and view. Try for a room at the front of the building for the perfect view. Great food is served all day, through till 10pm in this buzzy neighbourhood bistro with Afternoon Tea a particular favorite. Champagne Happy Hour is every Friday at 5pm and the bar is packed with a great, upmarket local crowd. The staff make the place and nothing is too much trouble. ... more less
