You can't get a much better location than being across the street from the place where Will Shakespeare "crept like a snail, unwillingly to school" (or however that line goes). Walkable to all the big things in Stratford related to Shakespeare--as well as the Royal Shakespeare Company theaters. Our room faced the street, although we were not troubled by noise (and it was fun to watch the tourists posing in front of the almshouses and the school). The staff was attentive and helped with bags and other arrangements. Lovely breakfast in the morning. We had a meal at the hotel on our first night and it was delicious. Ooh, Stratford sweltered in a rare heat wave; the hotel is not air conditioned (a common situation in older buildings in the UK, which is definitely not equipped for hot weather). Nothing to do about it, though--and not a fault of the hotel.
- 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
