“Outstanding”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

Stratford is a lovely place, and the White Sails is the place to stay.
Excellent hosts, superb rooms and an outstanding breakfast.
Just wish Id have been staying for more than one night, and will definitely return and advise anybody who'll listen to stay here if in the area.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at White-Sails while on vacation, and what a pleasure it was! Everything about this B&B is perfectly planned to the highest specifications. The room and bathroom were large and spotlessly clean and offered bathrobes, tea and coffee, chocolates, mints and special touches that added to the feeling of luxury. The RSC and Ann Hathaway's Cottage were less than 15 minutes away. Hosts Phillip and Chiung-Wen were welcoming, accommodating and knowledgeable, and waking to the smell of Phillip's freshly baked bread and other treats made breakfast something to look forward to each day. If you are looking for something with just that little extra, you cannot go wrong with White-Sails. Truly outstanding.

We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with this B and B. Our room, The Kenilworth, was spacious and nicely decorated. King size bed and a very good size bathroom. Nice view of residential neighborhood outside our windows and a short walk to a nice pub called The Bell. White Sails is just far enough away from the center of Stratford but still convenient to the attractions.
The proprietors serve a breakfast that includes home made jams and other treats. It was great.

Room Tip: I understand the Kenilworth is in the middle range of size and price out the 5 or 6 rooms available...

Having read the other reviews my wife and I had high expectations and we were not disappointed. After a warm welcome we were shown into a most comfortable, attractive and spotless room. It was just a 15 minute walk to the RSC theatre that evening. We had a quiet night and a really exceptional breakfast - wide choice of cereals, fruits, etc. Altogether a super place to stay and on our next visit to Stratford we will return to White-Sails without hesitation.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back and very quiet.

Everything about White Sails is five star, from the spotless, beautiful rooms, to the excellent food, comfort, peacefulness and thoughtful hosting- it is a treat for all five senses! We wouldn't hesitate to drive from the south coast just for a night's stay on a special occasion- you should too- you won't be disappointed.

We recently stayed at White-Sails in Stratford-Upon-Avon and it was a really special experience. The rooms were spotlessly clean; comfortable and Philip and Chiung were so welcoming and attentive. Breakfast was the best ever - 5 star; freshly baked produce etc., They're attention to detail showed how much they care for those who stay with them. If you are visiting Stratford, and you want somewhere quiet and serene,a place to relax after a long drive or sightseeing; also a place within walking distance of some great pubs and the town itself - then White Sails is the place to stay. Highly recommended.

If I am honest I knew that White Sails would be a special place to stay, thanks to all the other helpful reviews, and it did not disappoint.
Before you even stay the owners take the trouble to contact you and ask if you have any special requests. I requested a lovely bottle of wine for our room which was waiting for us when we arrived, in an ice bucket, sprinkled with flower petals.
The B&B is located on a main road into town. The rooms are not noisy though and there is parking outside for your car which would not be available for some of the B&Bs which are closer in to town. In any event, the B&B is not far from the town centre and we were able to walk to it easily for dinner in the evening.
The rooms are decorated to a very high quality. I was amazed at how large the bathrooms are, the largest I have seen for a B&B. It is also very nice having air conditioning, and a well stocked mini-bar fridge, each a first for me to see in a B&B.
We had two rooms, one double for us and a twin room for our older children which was next door. It was perfect for us.
Breakfast was a real treat which included home made bread.
The owners have established a terrific, top quality B&B.
Highly recommended.
