Emsley Guest House
Certificate of Excellence
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.

We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of February. We had a very warm, friendly welcome by Ray and Hayley. Our room was very clean, very cosy. Lovely home-made biscuits were left for us every day. A very filling, substantial breakfast which kept us going well into the afternoon every day, expertly cooked by Melanie. We didn't use our car at all during our stay due to the Emsley's very convenient location, walking everywhere, including to/from Anne Hathaway's cottage, which is about 30 minutes each way. Car parking was very convenient, in the car park just a few yards away across the road. Good location should you wish to travel by train also. We would recommend the Emsley. Thank you Ray, Melanie & Hayley for a lovely stay.
