What a find! We wanted a quiet comfortable stay for a one night stopover on a long drive back from Cornwall and that's exactly what we got and more....
This small, boutique B&B/Hotel is the best we've stayed in for a long time and we stay in quite a few. Rachel the owner, (and receptionist and waitress and many other things...) welcomed us with a friendly face and showed us to the most gorgeous room. Large comfortable bed, fantastic furnishings, spotlessly clean bathroom with luxury toiletries and lovely roll top bath. However, it was the fantastic little touches like a decanter of port in the room with homemade shortbread, the offer of a cup of tea or coffee on arrival and the general warmth and friendliness of the staff that makes this place 5 star in our opinion. The bar and lounge with a piano player, the great barstaff (thank you Ryan and others!) and to top it all off, the gorgeous food in the evening really made our stay. The food here is outstanding, we had a 3 course homecooked meal of top restaurant quality for less than £50 per couple. The breakfast was the best we've had. All in all we enjoyed every minute. Next time we visit the Townhouse, we will make a special trip and stay a couple of nights. So glad we decided to break our long drive with a stopover, we found a gem! Many thanks Rachel and team, please don't change!
- 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
