There are so many things to like about this hotel but many more to love and to keep you returning.
The staff - Nothing was a problem or too much trouble for the engaging and knowledgable staff at the Townhouse. From the initial emails regarding parking (I hadn't even booked at this point) to the follow ups about timings and dinner reservations. There was no snobbery or forced formality (which I have encountered in some Stratford hotels), here there was a warm welcome and an immediate feeling of relaxation.
The room - We stayed in a mid-price room and it was immaculate. The careful vintage design details that mix perfectly with the modern colour palette made this room a delight to be in. The size was great, the bed was extremely comfortable and everywhere was beautifully clean. We spent more time in this room than we usually would on a trip to Stratford just because it was such a lovely environment to be in. The little touches of the small decanter of port and the homemade shortbread biscuits were delightful. The bathroom was small but perfectly formed with a brilliant double shower and lovely toiletries.
The restaurant - We've been to the restaurant many times before (it's a staple for us whenever we're in Stratford) and breakfast is included when you book into the hotel - and it was amazing! From full english breakfasts to ham and cheese croissants to everything in between, it really was delicious. The staff were once again so friendly and helpful they put you completely at ease (so much so I wanted to wander down from our room in my pjs but I didn't want to put others off their breakfast!)
The location - It's exactly where you want to be in Stratford, a 5 minutes walk from wherever you want to be and see.
I would heartily recommend this beautiful hotel and it's lovely staff to anyone visiting Stratford-upon-Avon.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This independently owned 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 favourite. 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
