Excellent location in the town centrePosted Feb 20, 2014
Pros: Location and standard of room.
Cons: Charging guests £10 a night for parking seems excessive - they have a deal with an NCP car park nearby for £5 per night which is much more reasonable.
Location: Very close to restaurants and the RSC.
Lovely hotel, large and comfortable room very close to the town centre and the theatres.

Old classic hotelPosted Jan 8, 2014
Pros: Very central location.
Location: Beautiful walks and the oldest Startford-upon-avon pub opposite, although the drinks were cheap and the atmopsphere welcoming, the food not so good!
It offered us a unique back in-time experience that we enjoyed. The bar area was amazing, relaxing and the fire and furniture made it the ultimate R&R experience. The room sometimes was cold ( due to the heating being set on default settings, so you could not change this). Although the room was very large and comfortable. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Nice hotel in nice locationPosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Well kept old building and lovely atmosphere.
Cons: Larger car park and cheaper food and drink.
Location: Central location, near river, theatre, Nash's house, town centre. Ideal central l0cation.
Arrived and the hotel Car Park was full. Staff gave map and help with directions to NCP car park. NCP car park was reduced to £5 a night and about 5 minute walk. Check in quick and pleasant. Room was a good size and both bedroom and bathroom clean and tidy. Hotel well situated in Stratford and ideal for the river and theatre. Didn't eat or use bar at hotel as quite expensive. Plenty of options for eating and drinking near by. Stayed two nights and found the whole experiance very nice. Check out also quick and easy.

Perfect central locationPosted Nov 19, 2013
Pros: Welcoming public areas.
Cons: The reception staff who checked us in and out was the low point. Getting a correct bill that reflected what we were supposed to pay was also difficult
The rooms are a bit dated but comfortable. The breakfasts are very pleasant and the restaurant staff are on the ball, wehich helps.

Pros: I like everything,especially home-made shortbread offered with beverages. Love log burning fires in the Winter. Please don't change.
Cons: Breakfast a little disappointing,cooked food not very hot, and waiting staff could smile a little. However, efficiently served,and willingly responded
Location: Love especially boating on the river .Going to the theatre. Sitting in the gardens of Hall place having a picnic where Shakespeare may have sat.
Room characterful , clean ,comfy and spacious , although even small rooms in this hotel great. Beautiful crisp white bedlinen , attention to detail. Well done Mercure yet again.
