« Excellent location »

This hotel looks fabulous from the outside, and is very well located, with all the sights very close. Our room was a great size. It was my partners birthday and we had a few bottles of champagne which we couldn't keep cool, as the fridge was not working. We did mention this, but nothing got fixed. I do feel the staff on the reception desk are quite cold and not very helpful. Also, as they all seem to be foreigners this can actually cause some confusing conversations.

« Perfect location for a theatre based stay »

Welcoming, warm hotel with comfortable rooms located 5 minutes walk from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Good variety of restaurants in the same street as the hotel.

« Lovely old building »

We enjoyed our stay and had a lovely meal in the Marco Pierre White restaurant. We loved the old buildings and the bedrooms which had a lot more character than most modern hotels. Car parking was a bit chaotic but we appreciated having a secure parking so close to the town centre.

« Disappointing stay. »

We have stayed at the hotel a number of occasions and have always been more than happy with the quality and value for money. Although we appreciated that it was a particularly busy time, we felt the quality of the room for the price was not satisfactory. The shower leaked over the bathroom floor, the controls were faulty and the extractor fan was faulty and very noisy.

« Excellent hotel and great staff »

The Shakespeare is our favourite hotel in Stratford and we stay frequently all through the year. The experience we have is always fantastic. The hotel is well positioned in the town and has an authentic character. The restaurant and bars are really comfortable and good value and the quality of the breakfast is high. Above all, it is the staff that guarantee a perfect stay. Always attentive, friendly and helpful. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. Just what you need when staying away. We'll be back soon!

« Shakespeare Hotel Stratford upon Avon »

The staff friendly, helpful & willing to resolve any problem that may arise with your stay. Place warm & welcoming, very period with old oak beams. Rooms serviced every day, log fire in the lounge area, ideal for visiting Stratford central location, lots of restaurants in close proximity if you don't wish to eat in. Car park a little tight when busey.

« Quirky, unique, great staff. »

We don't live far away. Just wanted to get away for the night (Valentines) and central in Stratford with a car park. The attendant is pretty skilfull at getting a quart into a pint pot! The ambience isas it is. A really old wooden building with wonky floors and wonky walls and little corners tucked away here and there. Loved it. The staff were from all over Europe and very attentive. Nothing was too much trouble and it just flowed with ease. It was a busy night but never had to wait or felt pushed in any way.

« Very well located hotel so served us well »

« Great location »

Ideally situated hotel, plenty of restaurants and bars close by. Always have to pay for parking at Mecure hotels which is a bit disappointing however good stay overall.

« Old, tired room with a strong odour »

The staff member I dealt with was Maria. She is a wonderful person and very kind. When we got to the room she called to see if the room was ok, knowing that it really was not ok. I take partial responsibility for not speaking up and saying, actually, I would like a much better room. I do wish that that Maria had stepped up and just moved us regardless and not left it to me. That would be real customer service to do that. I felt a bit cheated out of an experience, though again, I was partly to blame. I have learned from this and talked with Maria afterwards. She did feel really bad and told me she could have moved us to a much nicer room. Because of how things transpired I would not stay at this hotel again or recommend to anyone. I didn't like how I felt after this experience. Room 118 needs to be gutted and re-done. The shower needs updating and the room needs some colour! Oh and also Maria couldn't find our booking. I booked on the Accor site and for some reason it didn't sync with the hotel's database. I even checked in on-line beforehand. All the best and thanks for reading this. I'm trying to stay as positive as possible but also want to be honest! Sincerely, A.

« Central for everything »

It is an excellent location but would not really survive away from the centre. We have stayed before so we knew what to expect, such as charges for parking, very creaky floors and other plumbing noises. Our usual hotel choice was not available so we stayed here for the fabulous location. The staff are superb and could not have been more professional, helpful and friendly.

« good stay »

had a very relaxing stay, only criticism was being asked to leave the room by 12pm after paying the extra for late departure, that was disappointing, also they really are too strict on breakfast times especially on a sunday morning

« Excellent location, very convenient to get around area »

Best as always for business travel... Right in the center of all the locations I am visiting around Birmingham. You can never get bored about food, within 200 metres radius there is 10+ excellent restaurants from all cousines.
