Travelled with my wife and daughter. Chose Emsley because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! The property is ideally situated for Stratford being only a 5 min walk into the centre. Emsley is well decorated throughout and our room was excellent. I can not improve on other reviewers opinions about breakfast only to agree totally with them and say it was fantastic.
However, the most impressive thing about this property are the owners Ray, Mel and Hayley. They really are welcoming, genuine people and offer great advice on where to visit and eat. A short story to illustrate the point. We travelled from Manchester and had a nightmare journey to get to Stratford (major accident on M6, we only travelled 30 miles in 4 hours). Having booked a cream tea (recommended), we phoned Mel to let her know we would be late. We arrived at 5.15pm, settled into our room, then half an hour later went down to the breakfast room for aforementioned cream tea - homemade scones, homemade jam, clotted cream, fresh strawberries and lots of tea and coffee. Just what we needed after our journey. We could only manage 4 of the 6 scones we were served. No problem, the 2 remaining scones were saved
and along with another scone and more jam was placed in our room on Saturday afternoon. On our return from a morning in Stratford we found the tray of jam and scones and this time left nothing! Additionally, the complementary biscuits in the room each day are also homemade and are also excellent!! Emsley really is a home from home and we will definitely have a return visit. Thank you Ray, Mel and Hayley
