B@B was excellent and Bill and Cita were very welcoming we couldnt fault anything .Location was really good ,just 10 min walk and you were in centre of Stratford. Would highly recommend to anyone coming to the area .

We loved our stay at Avonpark House. The room was perfect for my husband, daughter and I and it was very clean. The bathroom and shower were great with plenty of hot water! Breakfast was cooked to order and the staff were very efficient and courteous. We were within easy walking distance of downtown Stratford and there was a neighborhood pub just a few doors down which had great food. We ended up eating there both nights because we enjoyed it so much. We would highly recommend Avonpark House and look forward to returning one day!

I stayed here on July 5. It is a very clean and nice B&B located about a half mile from the center of Stratford. The king bed in my room was comfortable and the bathroom adequate. I liked that the room was large enough for a desk and chair as well as a wardrobe. The only disadvantage was that it was at the front of the house, so the traffice noise was noticeable. Not much traffic late at night, so it didn't keep me from sleeping. The bathroom was typical of all the B&Bs I stayed in. Very adequate. The British do know how to make good use of small spaces. The lady owner was very nice,
but didn't volunteer much information. If I asked, she gave me good info.

In retrospect, for me, it might have been better to stay closer to the center of town. It was my first night traveling along in Britain and a little disconcerting when I had trouble finding a taxi after an evening RSC performance. Probably being overly cautious, I did not want to walk back after dark through a neighborhood I didn't know (though it looked safe enough). So I think it's a great place to stay if you're not alone or not going to be out late or have better luck with taxis than I did.

Thank you for your comments. We are fortunate to live in a nice neighbourhood, in a small peaceful town. Our location is close enough to the town centre to walk, but far enough away to avoid disturbance when the pubs turn out. We provide information on local taxi companies, who are usually readily available, and who attend within 3 or 4 minutes of request. We provide a map to all Guests on arrival, and indicate short cuts or routes that are well lit by streetlights. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. regards Bill

Having a spare weekend to ourselves we made a last minute booking for Stratford-upon-Avon through Laterooms.com at Avonpark Hotel.
Avonpark is a charming B&B contained within a detached property on a main-but not too busy- road less than a mile away from Stratford City Centre.
On arrival we were greeted by the proprietor Bill, who immediately made us feel welcome and 'at home'. Check-in was swift and informative and our first impressions were very good. Everything we would need to know for our stay was explained clearly to us, we paid in full on check-in and were invited to make our choices for breakfast. Within approximately ten minutes we were shown to our ground floor room and we were settling in.
Our room was a comfortable sized double on the front of the property, where we could see our car and was adjacent to the breakfast room.
The accommodation was visibly very clean and had been maintained to a high standard. The en-suite bathroom was equipped with personal items, towels and a walk in shower. The decor was simple, neutral and well maintained. We found a well stocked hospitality tray and were offered fresh milk if we required it. There was a fitted wardrobe, dressing table and flat screen television-all in working order and again fully maintained.
The situation of the guesthouse was perfect for us as we did not wish to drive into the centre of Stratford. We were directed to the local Tramway Pub where the old tramway path could be reached via the car park. The quiet, treelined path gave access to the river and the town and took around 5-7 minutes to walk.
Breakfast the following morning was served in the adjacent breakfast room by Cita-the proprietor. We booked for 8:30am and were greeted by Cita and our choice of coffee. Toast soon followed whilst we ate cereal and just as we finished Cita served our choice of cooked breakfast. The portion size was very good and the entire breakfast had been cooked to perfection. There was visible extension building work taking place at the side of the breakfast room-although not on the Saturday morning-but this did not detract from the hospitality and service. Easy listening music was played in the breakfast room whilst we ate and our plates and dishes were cleared away promptly.
On departure on Sunday, we were able to leave our vehicle parked until 4pm so we could still enjoy a walk into Stratford without having to worry about car parking location or charges.
We were lucky enough to have picked our weekend away during the River Festival Weekend and so there was plenty of entertainment to occupy us for the weekend.
We enjoyed a relaxing, home from home, great value for money weekend at Avonpark House and would highly recommend.

We stayed in the Avonpark for one night room, was clean but the rooms were supposed to be en suite in this room there is a sliding door which did not work properly and then you were in the shower room! when you were using the toilet you were practically in the bed as well as they are so close to each other luckily I was with my husband but it might be a bit embarrassing for other people. Also the bedroom is directly in front of where the guests park their cars I opened the curtains and there was a man sitting in his car lookin directly in. also when I was in the middle of getting ready the owners wife started to water the window boxes again right in front of the window and there was just a liitle net on the wondow. Quite a noisy road as well.On this trip we had stayed in hotel in Cardiff,Bath, and Torquay that were far superior to this one and this was the most expensive one at £69.I do not know what the other bedrooms were like at this hotel but for the size and location of the shower room alne it should have been a lot less.

Thank you for your comments. Whilst disappointing, we value feedback in order to guage Guest response to our facilities. Property prices are high in Stratford, and consequently Hotel prices may be higher than other towns. We remain however one of the most competitive and best value for money establishments in the town. Rooms are allocated on a first come, first served basis, and late availability rooms offered through Late Rooms such as your booking, will mean that the larger rooms have already been allocated. The room is Ground floor facing the front of the property, with two parking bays in front. A normal, full length net curtain is provided for modesty. House maintenance such as watering flower baskets, is done between 10am and 4pm. This more modest of out rooms does still meet Visit Britain 4 star standards. The next, excellent review given on Trip Advisor, is from a Guest who also stayed in this room ! Different people's expectations remains an interesting challenge in our job. regards Bill

The room itself was excellent - clean, spacious and relaxing. The hospitality tray provided was refilled daily so we could always come back for a tea or coffee after a long day out. The television provided in the room was a bonus (even though we didn't really have much time to watch it as we were out enjoying Stratford).

The breakfast - could not have asked for more! The sausages were delicious and the vegetarian option was also great.

Bill and Cita were very welcoming and allowed us to leave our luggage with them after check out so we could make the most of our time in Stratford.

The walk to the centre of town was along the 'tramway', only a five/ten minute walk which was great.
