“Last minute break”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

Took a last minute break at the Avonpark this weekend to revisit Stratford. The location was excellent, well within walking distance of the town. We were able to park the car early so we had no worries about driving and parking in the town centre. The room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a short break. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was great ... we didnt think about lunch until mid afternoon. There was plenty of information and useful discount vouchers available at the Avonpark allowing us to plan our stay. All in all a very enjoyable stay and we would happily return. BN

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have good views over the garden.

Thank you for your comments. We especially try to stock the Warwick castle discounted offer. An excellent visit but at £21 per head for basic admission, not cheap. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. regards Bill

Have just had a short break in Stratford upon Avon staying at this lovely b&b for the first time. All rooms are spotlessly clean and during our stay the central heating was on and much welcomed.
The breakfast was good and the position of the b&b would take some beating.

Room Tip: We stayed in a standard room downstairs which was big enough for two chairs and a dressing table to...

We have just got back from our stay at the Avonpark B&B, and what a great little place. The owners were very friendly and really helpful as it was our first time in Stratford. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the lovely garden, with lots of wildlife including squirell's and various birds just outside our window. The room was a good size and spotlessly clean with everything you should need. The breakfast was plentyful and beautifully presented in a dining room that also overlooked the garden. The hotel was only a short walk into the town where there is plenty to do and see and if you were looking for some where to eat in the evening then we can recommend The Opposition on Sheep St, where you get excellent food and service. Getting back to the hotel I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Thank's again to Bill and Cita.

We stayed at the Avon Park B&B over Easter. It was a great stay - the owners very friendly and helpful. Even though we arrived early - Cita was friendly and welcoming and allowed us to leave our luggage and also park in the car park. The room was a good size and very clean with most of the facilities that you would need. The breakfasts were very large portions with a nice choice of options - the owners made sure you had everything you needed offering more food if required it. It was also fairly central to the centre of town - only about 8 minutes. We had a room at the front of the house which is a little noisy if you are a light sleeper because of the traffic ... but this shouldn't distract you from staying at this lovely little family-run establishment.

This is the first time ever we have stayed in a Guest House and did not quite know what to expect especially as it was booked at such short notice.. However we need not have worried as the whole experience was great. Bill the owner made us feel at home straight away and explained all we needed to know with regard to breakfast, trips, restaurants etc.
Cita the co-owner is really charming and seemed to delight in talking about the wildlife in the garden.
Bill was totally unphased when my husband nearly knocked his huge vase off the windowsill on the landing!
All in all we would recommend this accommodation.

We would very much recommend Avonpark to anyone planning a short break in Stratford. We arrived early but were able to check in and park the car for free. We were greeted by Bill, the owner, who was very helpful and friendly. Our room (No 2) was a great size (huge bed!) and very well appointed with a lovely bathroom (including a good shower). Everything was immaculately clean and there were generous tea and coffee facilities available. The cooked breakfasts were very tasty and as a vegetarian I was well catered for. The hotel is a short and pleasant walk into Stratford centre along the old tramway and footbridge across the river. One excellent benefit of staying in the hotel was the access to numerous discounts to local Stratford attractions and restaurants. Taking advantage of these discounts, along with the special weekend offer price for our stay, meant Avonpark offered great value for money. It also serves as a good base for travelling to places further afield such as Kenilworth or Warwick. We will definitely stay in Avonpark again for future visits to the area. Thanks Bill and Cita!

Over the years my husband and I have been to Stratford many times but never stayed on the south side of the river and I know we were missing out! The old tramway walk into town was lovely and peaceful and in no time at all you're in the town - we'll certainly be staying again. Lovely hosts, nice comfortable room with a lovely view over the garden and we enjoyed our breakfast with entertainment provided by a squirrel (obviously the squirrel was outside!)

Thank you for your comments. The squirrel and I regularly do battle over the latest "squirrel proof" device to protect the birdfood. He wins most rounds but is excellent entertainment value. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. regards Bill
