We stayed at the Church Street Townhouse on the night of the 18th December 2011 for my husbands birthday and can not recommend it highly enough. As it was a Sunday night we were not expecting it to be busy and to perhaps even be slightly lacking in the atmosphere you would normally get on a Friday or Saturday night, but we couldn't have been more wrong - the atmosphere was electric!
The bar and restaurant were heaving from our arrival at 3pm on Sunday afternoon until we retreated to our room at around midnight and we could see why. The staff were friendly, professional and unpretentious and clearly enjoyed their place of work. We booked a table for dinner in the restaurant (a must) and the food was fantastic. The same goes for breakfast the following morning - lots of choice and absolutely delicious.
We stayed in Room 3 (which we had asked for when booking) which was large, beautifully furnished, had a lovely roll top bath and a great monsoon shower. Although no minibar (I guess there is a bar just a few steps away anyway) there were tea & coffee making facilities and a decanter of port and two mince pies left for us - a nice touch.
Overall a really fab experience and we would definitely return.
- 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
