“Very friendly and clean but decor too dated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

The Brook Lodge was recommended to us by people who we know as a good B&B option near Stratford-upon-Avon. We found the proprietors very friendly and the place is professionally run. We had a twin room which consisted of a double and a twin bed. The room was a decent size with a reasonable amount of storage and was very clean. The beds were comfortable. There was lots of local information for people who did not know the locality and there was plenty of parking. The breakfast was very good. The big drawback for me was the decor / facilities. Our en-suite had an avocado toilet (1970's?) and shower cubicle and unusually the hand basin (salmon pink) was in our bedroom rather than in the bathroom. The furniture was very dated although in reasonable condition. The bathroom needed some work with signs of damp in the plaster and poorly repaired holes in the walls. The shower was also only adequate. We paid £64 per night for the 2 nights we were there and compared with the many other B&B's we have stayed at I thought this was a little expensive although I am not sure how it compares with other places in Stratford. If the decor was improved this B&B could easily get a 4 or even 5 star rating from me.

There's nothing terribly special about Brook Lodge but it does the job - it's clean and tidy, the owners are very friendly and welcoming and they do a very good English breakfast. We deliberately picked Brook Lodge because we like walking but you should be aware that's it's probably about 1 or even 1.5 miles outside Stratford town centre. The only slight niggle we would have is that breakfast is only available from 8.00 to 9.00 - no real chance of a good holiday sleep in!

giannir, Owner at Brook Lodge Guest House, responded to this review, September 27, 2011
While we are always grateful for comments received we would like to point out (for the record)
that although breakfast and check out times are necessary, we always give our best consideration to special requests. Breakfast is not served from 8 to 9 am as we take the last orders at 9 and after that guests are served for as long as they wish.
Our distance from the town centre (market square) is exactly 1 mile: according to our guests between 15 and 20 minutes walk. Just ideal for those who do not wish to use their car while on holiday considering that we also offer a very comfortable car park available (on request) even after check out.

We stayed at Brook Lodge for 2 nights with our children aged 2 and 8 months. We were made to feel very welcome and had been moved to a larger room to make our stay more comfortable. We found the room to be spotlessly clean and homely. The cooked breakfasts were deliciously cooked to order and my 2 year old loved his boiled egg each morning! We will definitely return to Brook Lodge in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Stratford Upon Avon and surrounding areas.

We stayed last night and loved this B& B, it was very clean and comfortable, fantastic breakfast and you couldn't need more really, just a mile from Stratford so took about 15 mins to walk there which also suited us. All in all very very good.

This is a very good guest house.
We have been here last year already and because it was so lovely we adapted our journey so that we could stay here another time. We were here for 5 nights this year and hated to leave again.
The people are very friendly and helpfull.
The breakfast is very good. You just have to ask if you like more juice or whatever.
The rooms are very clean. We stayed in the en suite room with our son who had a separate room for himself. Wonderfull.
In the rooms there is coffee, tea, chocolate etc available.

In 15 minutes you can walk to the city centre.
It is good value for money and we can advise anyone to stay here.
