“Lots of character”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

A really quiet room, just what was needed after a fairly intense theatre trip. Very good breakfast, lovely bathroom, really comfy bed, rather tatty bedroom furniture and wonky pictures on the wall - but who cares for a one night stay. Parking could be an issue for a longer stay, but arrangements with nearby multi-storey very reasonable.

Room Tip: Stayed in Garrick Wing - well away from the wedding disco we were warned about on arrival. Didn'...

Have stayed here a number of times in order to go to the theatre. The beds are really comfy as are the rooms. The food is top quality and the service throughout is excellent. Right in the centre of Stratford and minutes walk from the theatre.

We stayed in the Shakespeare for 2 nights, September 6th and 7th, The room we had was excellent, large with big comfortable double bed, 2 flat screen TV's along with settee and office for work if necessary. There were slippers and dressing gowns available in the wardrobe for our use
Extremely clean and tidy on arrival
Excellent bathroom with hot and powerful shower.
The wedding breakfast was in the hotel for 60 guests and was superb
The evening celebrations was also there in the ballroom for 100 guests and we were all treated excellently. The hotel is situated right in the centre of Stratford Upon Avon
Would certainly recommend this hotel for just a stay or for any wedding festivities.
They are actually licensed to carry out marriages at the hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the street with others at the rear but not a problem wherever you stay

Reception was busy at check in but wait was acceptable. Check in was fine and our US friends requested a different room and were assigned a larger room in the Garrick wing for the same price and were very happy! We were happy with our room in the main hotel with quirky floors and walls but were surprised that the Garrick wing was not more expensive. Bed was very comfortable and the curtains pretty much blacked out the light. Wifi was great and our overall stay was very good. Thanks!

Room Tip: If the Garrick Wing is the same rate then you can get a larger room.
