Great hotel and good location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

ldspicer 14/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Arrived early and managed to park in one of the last spaces in the hotel car park. Gabor at reception checked us in straight away (not sure if the ALL membership helped here?). Classic room in Garrick Suite. Huge double aspect room. Thought we'd been given an upgrade. Room is very near to all the great eateries in Sheep Street and close to the river and all the other sights. Really enjoyed our stay

Dear ldspicer, Thank you for your rating and review of your stay with us. Great to see that you had a great experience and liked your room. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and hope you will do so again next time you are in the area. Kind regards Jason General Manager

slateloose22 13/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

From arriving (late) to leaving and being pleasantly surprised that the drinks in the room fridge were complimentary, everything was perfect. Staff friendly and helpful, we need a disabled bay and this was organised with a reserved sign on a VERY busy car park. Breakfast was a good selection and well cooked. Great stay and would love to return.

Dear slateloose22, Thanks for rating your stay and posting a review, it always great to get 'top marks'. Great to read that you found everything to be perfect. Thank very much for choosing to stay and i hope you will do so again next time you visit Stratford-upon-Avon. Kind regards Jason General Manager

Very enjoyable stay in well located hotel, benefiting from Mercure brand and Accor loyalty programme. Historical building very pleasant, some decor now becoming tired.

siricat 07/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

This is the third time we have used this hotel. Once again, our room was clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff we came into contact with (reception and at breakfast) were all friendly and helpful. We enjoy occasional trips to this town, and this hotel is our preferred option.

Dear Robn, Thanks for your great review its always nice to get top marks, even more so from a guest who has stayed with us for the third time. Thank you for choosing to return and for you positive comments in regard to your stay and the team. We very much look forward to welcoming you the next time you visit Stratford-upon-Avon. Kind regards Jason General Manager

A V. Friends - 06/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Absolutely loved our stay here. Quirky, old hotel with pleasant staff and Shakespearean named bedrooms. Rooms are clean and oldy worldy with character. Lashings of hot water, lovely and warm, comfortable beds with tea/coffee making facilities. Fabulous breakfast and ample parking. Note: Car parking is £15 overnight. Wine was pricey at the bar but as we only bought one round, we didn't mind. Thank you Mercure Shakespeare Hotel for a very pleasant and most comfortable stay.

Lovely Old Hotel in centre of Stratford-up-Avon

Judeburr Couples - 04/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We only stayed the one night, hotel & staff great, central location in town & parking available too. Breakfast was good too. Just two small complaints, Shower head over bath was black /corroded so I didn't really enjoy my shower, the rest off bathroom spotless & clean. The complimentary bottle of red wine tasted of vinegar, so I didn't drink it.

Well Located, convenient

Eileen P. Friends - 04/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Pretty disappointed. Had a cool reception at arrival with a certainly warm or charming interior. Dark colour schemes with dark surrounds and bad lighting. I was staying in room 112 paid £145 incl breakfast - my room was dingy, musty with poor lighting. Bathroom had bright fluorescent lights surrounding mirror which made it impossible to see or make up. There were no shelves or rails around the basin/ the basin was so shallow all water was splashing on floor.

Complete lack of service and expensive

Lovely old hotel, comfortable room with beautiful views over a park. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially the lady on reception desk I think her name was Maria not sure. Stratford upon Avon is a beautiful town with fantastic restaurants

Wonderful visit

Mrs J. B. Friends - 27/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We loved our few days at The Shakespeare Hotel, even the wonky old floors! The staff were endlessly helpful, charming and friendly. The hotel has a warm, welcoming atmosphere - and excellent breakfasts. We felt we had been away far longer than a few days because of the relaxing time we had. Thank you.

Close to all attractions

Dc Couples - 27/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived a little early for check in, but found a space in the very convenient car park. Delightful and quirky old hotel. Very helpful and attentive staff. Comfortable room with spacious en suite bathroom with over bath shower. Very tasty buffet style breakfast with good quality bacon and sausages. Slightly let down by the cheap sliced bread for toast. The ‘conveyor belt’ toaster also had a fault I had found in other establishments. One trip did not brown the bread sufficiently, after two, it was burnt.

Lovely night stay

Grubby hotel, Evening meal appalling

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Anonymous Couples - 25/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Somewhat dissatisfied overall Although room in general was clean, the main of the areas of the hotel were very tired and grubby. We alerted main desk that the coffee maker had leaked, but was never replaced as promised. The evening meal was appalling and inedible. Although we made our observation that evening, also with desk next morning and through sending an official complaint on returning, to date have not received any communication.

Staff are welcoming and attetive.Friendly

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

jackie54ellis 20/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Really disappointed with the standards in the bedroom. Broken lampshades. Mould on grouting joints in the bath. Wallpaper was peeling off. Furniture was dusty. Really not worth the money they charged.

Dear jackie54ellis, I am sorry that your stay was not as you expected and you felt that you did not receive value for money. That is certainly not our aim and sorry that I did not have the opportunity to apologise in person. Kind regards Jason Mayglothling General Manager
