The best thing about the Mercure Shakespeare Hotel is it's location. Centrally located in Stratford Upon Avon, you are within walking distance of the town's attractions. The second best thing about the Hotel is it's old world charm. It has a lovely tudor exterior, and quaint charming rooms. However, the room we stayed in looked nothing like the pictures the property uses in it's advertisements, so if you are expecting modern and updated, you may be disappointed.
The room was very cozy (small), but it was clean, and the beds were quite comfortable. The common areas of the Hotel have retained their periodic charm, particuarly the bar. Buffet breakfast was your average combination of cold and hot offerings, and a good value only if you have a huge appetite. We gave dinner a miss in this property, and instead walked to the Dirty Duck pub for excellent fish and chips.
This is not a four star property however, if five star means perfection. But with a few tweaks here and there, and should you secure a reasonable room rate, it can offer value for money and be a comfortable stay.
