It was out first visit to Stratford-upon-Avon and staying at Avonpark House made it really enjoyable. We arrived late on Friday night (due to a delayed coach) and we had a nice welcome from Bill. Our room was spotless and beautiful and most importantly warm (it was December). The shower room was lovely, I really looked forward to my morning shower - (nice showergel was also provided!) and there was a little fan heater in the shower room too - such a nice little luxury on a cold morning! Our breakfast was delicious in the morning and the staff were warm and friendly and it was nice that Bill took an interest in our plans for the day ahead and gave us tips about the town. The hotel was very peaceful and quiet and it was within in easy walking distance to the town centre and plenty of little pubs and restaurants - not to mention Shakespeare's birthplace. It was very reasonably priced and we would not hesitate to stay here again, in fact I'm going to recommend it to my parents when they visit Stratford-upon-Avon. Thank you Bill and CIta for a very nice stay and we hope to visit again.

We had a one night stay at the Avon Park House. Lovely, large room. Nice and warm, massive bed! Excellent shower with plenty of hot water. Spotlessly clean. Our door opened onto the garden (bit too cold to open though in December, but would be perfect in the Summer). Got a lovely warm welcome from Bill. Breakfast was delicious, large selection and plenty of it. A very short walk into town and the Tramway Pub which serves excellent meals (£5 off voucher available at the hotel). Free parking. Will definitely return. Thanks for a relaxing stay!

Just stayed one night but it was -2 outside. Lucky for us Bill and his wife made us very welcome. Warm, cosy room with ensuite. Very clean. Overlooking pretty, frosty garden at the back. Good value for money. Parking on front. Easy stroll into town.

Having never visited Stratford-upon-Avon, we decided to take the opportunity to break our journey from Cumbria back home to Dorset there and to see Shakespeare's birthplace. I picked this guest house through Booking.com as having parking, being within easy walking distance of Stratford's main attractions and being reasonably priced.

We were not disappointed! Bill, the owner, was pleasant and knowledgeable (as one might expect) about the area. Our room, whilst long and rather narrow, was very well presented and appointed and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. In fact, the whole guest house is really bright, clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast in the morning was also very good, nicely cooked and just the right sized portions.

The centre of town is only about 10 minutes walk and, if you are visiting the attractions, be sure to pick up discount vouchers from Bill's display before you go. Those we got made visits to the Shakespeare properties really very inexpensive.

We will certainly stay here again if the opportunity arises for us to return to Stratford.

We had read some excellent reviews on 'Trip Advisor' and we can only re-iterate the positive comments. We stayed in Room 7 which is long and narrow but large, the bathroom was a good size and the shower area was not only big it contained a terrific powerful shower. It is the best shower we have experienced and we have stayed in 5* hotels. The double bed was very comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean and warm as was the rest of the building.
The breakfast room overlooks the garden and unlike some B&Bs you did not feel you are sitting on top of other guests. The quality of the breakfast was good as was the service. What was different was the fact that you had to choose what you wanted to eat the night before by leaving an order form and also stating the time when you would be eating but this was certainly not an issue and it added to the efficiency of the service. Breakfast was a very pleasant and relaxing experience.
The B&B is only some 7-8 minutes walk from the town centre - The quickest way is through the car park of the 'Tramway' pub which is about a 100 yards from the B&B, up the steps at the end, turn right along a path and proceed past the Butterfly Farm, although it should be noted that this pathway is not lit at night so when it is dark it is advisable to stay on the main Shipston Road.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the ‘Avonpark’ and certainly intend to return again.
