      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.

      Fairly modern, relaticely spacious rooms. The older portion was exactly what you might hope to get, based on the pictures of the outside.

      Half-timbered ceiling and walls, rolling floors (and ceilings!) in the halls, very small rooms, but the type of character you'll never get anywhere else. As it turns out, it's a good thing that I was given the old room, as I was the only one under 5'6" in our group, so the "Mind your head - low beams" signs didn't phase me at all. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but we did have a few ciders at the pub, and found it to be very much what you'd expect in a 16th-century pub in Stratford.

      The hotel itself is perfectly situated for the theatres -- about a 2-block walk. It's a longer walk (perhaps or 10?) to Shakespeare's birthplace, but certainly walkable. There were plenty of restaurants to choose from between the hotel and the theatres, and if my friends had been up for pub grub, I'd be able to tell you about the food at the Falcon. As it is, book your room there, but if you have a preference (roomy vs. character), be sure to ask about it when you book.

      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!!

      Yesterday we drove down to Laverstoke Mill which is now the Bombay Sapphire Distillery. We had watched a Megafactories documentary on the restoration of the mill and loved getting to see it and to learn about making the gin. After enjoying our riding hack so much on Friday, today Craig, Aaron and Chloe had a riding lesson at the same stables. Everyone did really well, especially Craig whose horse decided to do an impromptu canter but he managed to hold ...

      ... We continued to eat our way around the markets however! We had waffles, donuts, more mulled wine and even had deep fried cheese. We finished off the night with a ride on the Ferris wheel, which was a little scary going up for me as I'm not so good with heights. But once I realised that we were pretty secure, it was a lovely ride looking over the city on a clear night with the full moon ...

      ... least a few years, I'm sure will be told for the rest of my life, with so many unforgettable moments. Travelling is an experience everyone should do if they are so fortunate to have the opportunity and as westerners, its never been more affordable for us. Working routine day in, day out makes time fly past and blur into one memory of nothing.
      One day your life will flash before you, so make it worth watching!!!

      It was about a 15 to 20 minute ride and we arrived in Stratford-Upon-Avon which is pretty much Shakespeare’s town because he was born there and he is buried there. Since we had just paid a big admission price earlier, we opted out of paying to go ...
