“Nice place and nicer people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

We stayed for one night in the guest house. We did not take a car, so parking was not our concern. The room was very good and I was told that all the rooms were refurbished recently. We stayed in 'The York' suite. It was apt for a couple. Very clean, nicely decorated, a small LCD with freeview and with a provision to make tea or coffee. The bathroom and toilet was very clean, but only disadvantage is small shower cubicle, but that's not an issue worth mentioning. The people were very welcoming and knowing that it was our first time in Stratford, they did guide us about different places and activities. Even though the guest house is situated on a busy road, once you are in, its very quiet. Very near to town centre and railway station.
The morning breakfast was excellent. Even though we were the only people staying in the guest house, we were provided everything we ordered and even more than that. You will get full English breakfast and along with that cereals, juice, fresh tea and coffee, grapefruit ... My wife loved her scrambled eggs and and sausages were equally good. I would definitely recommend staying here and I would stay here again if I visit Stratford Upon Avon.

Room Tip: The York suite is on the back side so quite and more than enough for a couple.

Stayed here last night and we were very impressed with the friendliness of the owners and cleanliness of the place (I am very fussy!)
Room was great The little touches were appreciated - homemade biscuits in our room as well as the usual tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast was lovely (and hot) with plenty of choice. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a central location - about 15 minutes walk from the theatre and there are plenty of pubs/restaurants just around the corner.
Although there isn't private parking there is a public car park just down the road and the owners will give you a parking voucher to cover the cost.

Room Tip: Only choose the Warwick if you don't mind steep stairs.
