Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Grubby and unpleasant
This was an unpleasant place to stay. The bathroom is impractical, with no hand towels, no lock and a poorly designed wet room that leaves everything soaked and a floor that is hazardous. The shower head is broken and repaired with electrical tape, the rainfall shower is clogged with lime scale and the dying plant enhances the sense that this is a property that is not well looked after. There is a strong smell of gas downstairs and a strong smell of damp upstairs. Whilst I'm sure the owner has everything tested as required, these odours add to the general air of neglect. I enjoy many things about Stratford and visit often. This is one of the least enjoyable places I've stayed. I recommend looking elsewhere.

A little gem
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I honestly didn’t want to leave and I don’t think I used the bath enough. Perfectly central to everything needed. Immaculate inside and garden was lovely to enjoy breakfast in. Next time we will be coming back without my children and with lots of books to read and a full 7 days. Fabulous much appreciated.

A fantastic cottage right in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon
A fantastic cottage right in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon. Great living and dining room, a perfect kitchen and two lovely bedrooms were perfect for our stay with our small family with two boys. Loved the wet room bathroom with a big copper bath! Literally only a 3 minute walk into the town centre makes this a perfect location for a holiday in Shakespeare country. Thanks to the host for helping us have a lovely weekend.
