Great Hotel in the ancient heart of Stratford.

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Cons: A slightly cheaper room rate would be appreciated by older travellers.
Location: superb location only five doors away from Shakespeare's house in the centre of Stratford. Lots to do and see within walking distance. more to do onl
A wonderful hotel, even if it is on the expensive side. Cannot be faulted for service, comfort, atmosphere and general ambience. we would stay there again for every reason.

Ideal place for theatre goers to stay.

Posted Feb 27, 2015
Pros: It is in a wonderful position for seeing Stratford. Stratford is a lovely town (a bit touristy) in the middle of beautiful countryside.
Cons: Lighting is poor in parts of the hotel - especially through the back entrance to Reception.
Location: The hotel is in the middle of town, ideal for shops and other amenities. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is a short walk away (under ten minutes).
Our room on this visit was excellent . It was spacious, had a very firm bed, adequate clothes storage and a well-lit and maintained en suite bathroom. Not all rooms in the hotel are so satisfactory -it is an old building of great character, and some quirkiness is to be expected. Breakfasts were very good: generous portions and excellent service.

Shakespeare Hotel

Posted Feb 13, 2015
Pros: Proximity to the RST which means as a single traveller I can go to an evening performance and be in my room ten minutes after leaving the theatre.
Cons: Very pleasing ambience should not be changed.
Location: Stratford on Avon what more can I say.
I have been to this hotel many times before, but this is the first time I had to wait nearly fifteen minutes for somebody to come onto reception. There was no bell to ring!

The building is what appealed,Tudor splendour which from the outside looks nice,the room was ok,decor a bit shabby,bathroom small,when it comes to breakfast very hit and miss both mornings we were there and then having to pay to park my car after all the cost to myself already I will not be returning here.

Lovely, thank you!

Great. Everything you need. Plenty of space in a big room. Thry might want to quieten the carpark barrier - but otherwise great

Smelly room

Posted Feb 4, 2015
Very tired room smells like an old peoples home. The hotel was full of energy saving light bulbs ..... Like staying in a dungeon

A little gem

Posted Feb 1, 2015
Great service from the hotel staff all round. Rooms are clean and retain a number of original features from this beautiful building. I recommend this place very highly for the above. It's location in the centre of Stratford makes it ideal for quickly reaching the theatre and other attractions.

Mercure Stratford upon Avon

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: Excellent decor real fire in bar. Super 18th century architecture.
Cons: Porters needed to assist with luggage
Location: Ideal location for town, shops, bars, parking and especially Royal Shakespeare Theatre
Pleasant one night stay. Good price. Marco's restaurant excellent. Comfortable room with new en suite but found out next day that our room 203 was haunted! No problems : ghost friendly but some people might like to avoid.
