We slept in! Bliss. Then to Café Rouge in Sheep Street for a very pleasant brunch with the day's newspapers. After this relaxing time we went to Nash’s house (Shakespeare’s daughter and her husband’s house) and New Place. There an archaeological team is conducting a dig of the open ground where New Place (Shakespeare’s home …

Yesterday we had found out the "best" places for breakfast and this morning we had a good cooked breakfast overlooking the River Avon and the Bancroft Gardens. Before buying tickets for the City Sightseeing bus we returned to the hotel for some warmer clothes; Tom having realised that his shirt was not going to be sufficient. We took the bus to …

We packed – one large case and the small case to stay at ROSL and the rest of our luggage to come with us to Stratford Upon Avon. The weather was again cold (to us) and wet.

Our train to Stratford as quite full and we had the (dubious) pleasure of sharing a compartment with a group of excited children who, we determined, were also …

King Arthur and Shakespeare

After breakfast in the dining room of nice-but-uncomfortable-talking-to-stran gers hostess lady, we loaded up and drove to Tintagel. Really fabulous ruins, and amazing location. Mom, Julie & Katie opted to not face the steep, wet, rickety steps down the hill (wonder why not?), and went into town for shopping instead. Sara and I grabbed the …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Legacy Falcon Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon

    Not my cup of tea....

    from

    Sorry to go against a popular hotel, however......We arrived for a two night stay from 29/12 - 31/12, 2004. Whilst I agree the hotel does have lots of charm, I was most disappointed with our room. The room was not well maintained, stains on duvets, very musty smelling, terribly bowed bed, missing fixtures in bathroom (with marks clearly displayed on walls) and very limited space. I also found the pricing extremely high. In regard to other comments, I'm guessing we were in the older section of the hotel and again, wouldn't recommend. Im sure there are better quality hotels around for the kind of money this hotel asks for!!

    Olde England

    from

    We stayed at the Falcon in early Feb.2005. We were pleasantly suprised by the professional yet informal atmosphere of the place. All the staff (bar one receptionist who was obviously in the wrong place/wrong job) were friendly, courteous and very helpful. We stayed in the old part - our first night was in a normal double room, which was lovely, small but lovely; our second night was in the four poster room which was incredible!!. It had an entrance, a lounge area with TV, a very large bedroom and a small corridor leading to a bathroom - very indulgent!! I would thoroughly recommend this room to any honeymooners or romantic weekend away couples. The restaurant was large and very busy, but the staff were very good and fed us even though we arrived late! The food ( dinner and breakfast) was of an acceptable standard, if you want something a bit more special then you need to visit Marlowes just down the road. The hotel is very close to the theatres, about a 10 minute walk and is right in the centre so all the shops are close by. Another thing worth mentioning is that although they have public access bars etc. the noise level is very low - so no thumping music at 10.30 when you're trying to relax. One last thing - unless you're desperate, give Warwick castle a miss, at £3 for car parking and £12.95 each to get in its a bit of a rip off.

    Superb location

    from

    We stayed one night on a theatre break and found the location perfect for the RSC and Swan theatres. Our room was quiet with a small balcony and very comfortable. We had to squeeze our car in to a space reserved for staff and the porter had to hunt for a kettle. Additionally the hotel was run off its feet with a wedding reception and various reunions. Despite this service was never seriously impeded, although some people had to wait to be served for breakfast. Altogether a good stay - we would recommend

    Good Location , good luck with your room ...

    from

    Extremely well located for all of Stratford attractions. This hotel has bags of charm and character when viewed from the exterior.This is followed through inside, depending on what part of the hotel you room is situated in. One part of the hotel looks rather modern and bland and could be any 1970's hotel. We were lucky enough to stay in the old part of the hotel. Our room has exposed beams sloping floors and ceiling all just what you would hoped for, when viewing this old building from the exterior. One concern was our bathroom, which was extremely small and needed modernising urgently. Breakfast was of a fair standard for a 3 star hotel . In conclusion excellent location , excellent exterior and good luck with your room and bathroom !!

    Never again

    from

    My mother and I stayed there in 2001 .My mother in the new section. The wall paper was peeling,there was no heating on although it was a cold April.

    My room was in the old section.The bath room was something out of Dicken's .Linoleum peeling,ancient bath tub. My room was not really well cleaned as did not empty my garbage can on a daily basis.

    My mother entertained friend there in the dining room.The food was slow in coming and cold and had to be returned to be heated up

    I do not know how the English put up with this

    Excellent location

    from

    If you are looking for a very confortable hotel in the heart of Stratford, look no further. Hotel within walking distance of the main attractions. Our room was in the "new" part at the rear of the hotel which meant it was very quiet. Room could benefit from a freshen up if being critical, but for me the space, comfortable beds and clean bathroom with lots of hot water made up for this. Staff attentive. Breakfast good and evening meals as expected for a three star establishment. Plenty of places to eat out nearby if on B&B break. Carpark at hotel free whereas in some hotels you have to pay(covered by CCTV). Overall very good and I would be happy to recommend it.

    Split personality - but both are nice

    from

    In March 2004, my companions and I stayed at the Falcon. My friends had 2 twin rooms in the newer section, and I had a single in the older section. The newer section is indeed as non-descript as you can get -- but for Americans looking for a predictable hotel room, it's perfect.

    Disappointing

    from

    From the street and the pictures the Falcon looks the epitome of the old English inn. Indeed the public lounges are superb and just as higgledy piggledy as you would expect. Our room however was in the modern annexe and about as bland a motel room as they come. It could have been in a Travel Inn for all the character there was. I don't know what the very few rooms in the original inn are like, but you will be hugely disappointed if you are expecting to stay in Shakespearean splendour.

    Easter in stratford

    from

    The hotel is well presented and the staff wre all extremely pleasant. would not recomend the restaurant in the evening as the service was extremely rushed and the food relatively bland, however the breakfasts were excellant

    close to all the main attractions and a pleasant informal hotel

    The Falson Hotel, Startford-upon-Avon

    from

    The Falcon Hotel is everything you would expect from a stay at the beautiful Stratford - Upon - Avon. With 16th Century beams in the old section of the hotel, the comfortable bedrooms offer ample sapce. The breakfast is superb and there is a cosy bar located to the front of the hotel, or a quieter one for those who prefer a more relaxed stay. Would thoroughly recommend it!!
