“Not luxury and therefore overpriced - jacuzzi doesn't compensate!”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

It was wonderful to benefit from the newly installed central heating- without which I would have given 2 stars. This may have been a luxury accommodation when first refurbished, but too much time has passed to continue to merit the term and the decor is tired. The sofas are distinctly uncomfortable for continued use; all the showers bar one leaked into the rooms below. For a group booking, the large table provision is poor - the two tables put together were uneven, and half the group can't put their knees comfortably under the table. The people managing the property are friendly and willing to please- new kettles had just been provided following feedback from a previous user- but it doesn't all add up to a luxury accommodation as described. Having a jacuzzi, whilst a pleasant addition, didn't compensate for a generally under-standard experience. And personally, I find tiled flooring in all living areas cold and unpleasant. Fine for kitchen areas but unwelcome in lounge areas.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your comments.
We do not pretend that ?The Shakespeare Lodge? is the height of luxury or a super modern high class accommodation.
What the property offers is good quality self-catering accommodation for up to 12 people in a beautiful farm location, where guests can enjoy their event or holiday exclusively for their group.
The property has hundreds of people a year stay and it is full every weekend and many weekdays too.
As you can imagine, it does have its fair share of wear and tear as you would expect with this many people partying/holidaying day in day out.
To that end, the property has to be functional, well equipped and able to deal with a large number of guests staying.
Refurbishment is a constant job in this property and as you have already pointed out, we have just spent �10,000 on a brand new central heating system to replace the previous electric heaters to give our guests a nice warm and cosy stay.
We are continuously replacing furniture, electrical items and housewares. In the last 12 months, sofa?s, beds, washing machines, dishwashers along with kettles, microwaves and glass and cook ware have been replaced on numerous occasions along with much decorating in between guests.
Refurbishment is continuous throughout the year and to keep it at a good standard all year round.
We would love to spend thousands of pounds each time we replace the sofas so that they are more comfortable for your continued use, but realistically due to the nature of the property putting high quality designer furniture in would be totally uneconomical due to the huge amount of use that every item of furniture receives.
The two leaks you mention were from the newly installed boilers and not the showers as they had literally only been commissioned the morning of your arrival and cannot be overtightened. They have since been adjusted. We apologise for this and did offer to send someone to look at it when you advised us.
I agree with you that the two tables in the dining room pushed together are not the perfect scenario but they are the only tables we have been able to find so far that will seat 12 people all together in that space. We have looked at many other options and have not yet found anything else suitable. We will continue our search.
I am sorry that you do not like tiles in the downstairs areas but again, we get many walkers and we are based in a semi-rural farm location and to put carpet downstairs would be futile. All of the upstairs areas do have carpet and even these have to be professionally cleaned on a regular basis. The lounges although tiled, do all have rugs to compensate.
I cannot agree that the property is an understated experience and certainly cannot agree that it is overpriced.
A mid-week break for 12 guests can be booked for less than �35 per person per night or even less if you are lucky enough to book a late deal with us.
Where else can a group get together in accommodation booked exclusively for their group, in a beautiful location complete with stunning views and sunsets. Free parking, free Wi-Fi, free use of the Large Luxury Hot Tub again exclusively for use by their group only, for less than �35 per person per night.
I would say that was an absolute bargain and is one of the reasons that the property is full all year round. We pride ourselves on offering excellent value for money. We also welcome and offer guided tours of our properties by appointment prior to you booking to ensure that your chosen property is perfect for your event and your personal requirements.
The vast majority of groups that stay in this property have a fantastic time and are there to enjoy themselves and the facilities. This is backed up by the fact that over 35% of our business is repeat business, many of whom have been staying with us every year for years on end. Numerous regular guests have become personal friends.
Possibly this property was not the right property for your group and perhaps a boutique hotel or something similar would have suited you better. Everybody has different expectations and requirements.
We do however thank you very much for staying and we are pleased you liked the Jacuzzi Hot Tub.

“Very tired, needs some money investing in properties”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

As per the review in February, nothing has been fixed or replaced.
Sofas and chairs have collapsed, beds not comfortable, kettles with no filters, small fridge and only one freezer for 3 houses, showers run boiling hot and freezing cold, décor tired, ovens slow, wi fi slow or not available, human waste found on the floor of the toilet.
I reported the issues when I returned to be told I should have reported it at the time. But unless the owner can magic a new sofa, improve wi fi etc....what difference would it make.
As there was limited no wi fi I had no contact number and no books in the properties to help with any issues.
Far too expensive for all the issues we had.

“Excellent venue for a group trip”

On approach to the venue we all marvelled at the idyllic setting of the Shakespeare Lodge. Upon arriving we were met by our hostess who was very welcoming and she showed us around the properties and relevant facilities. The property is very comfortable with all the necessary equipment for a group trip, fully equipped kitchen, good bathroom etc. I would recommend the lodge for all whether a romantic get away to a work team bonding.

On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff and part of the check in was a tour of the property where we were shown how things worked. The property was clean and tidy and the kitchen had everything you needed for your stay, which makes a refreshing change. Ideal location just outside Stratford, with amazing country views. Check out was just as professional, and the stay was relaxing and stress free.

“Good for Hen Party”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

This place was fit for purpose, a good base for a hen party. I was aware that the cottages weren't connected, I quite liked that element as meant if wanted time out or chill you could do.
It was about 10-15 mins from stratford and the taxis we booked were always on time and reliable.
The place was for for purpose, a group if girls who wanted to a nice base to chill, have drinks and use the hot tub.
There are lots of little maintenance issues, door handles, lose tap, sunken furniture which needs sorting to make this place lovely.
Great communication from owners though.
