We left Linlithgow with no specific destination in mind and no booking anywhere. We were very sad to leave Honeysuckle Cottage at Williamscraig cottages as we had a really lovely time there. The cottage was modern and very well appointed. It was pretty cold the whole time we were there and one night we filled the big bath with water and luxuriated …
Hello from England! We did make it! No posts before now because we have not had Internet access! This will also be very short as I am typing on Deb's iTouch and it I'd a total pain in the butt. Wales was great and we had terrific weather. Got to Stratford upon Avon and it has been raining. The play is tomorrow. Will try to post more tomorrow and with pictures of we can find an Internet cafe.
... on the water sprayed all over the floor and the shower head started to leak. I grabbed the shower head and it came off into my hand. The water sprayed upwards towards the ceiling and I was madly trying to turn the tap off! I finally managed to get the shower head sort of stuck back into the hose and had a mildly irritating shower. I set the alarm for 5:30am as I need to be in the lodge shuttle by 6am to get to the terminal to catch the tube into London...
Today was quite warm by UK standards and Derek and I had a pleasant walk along the canal in the morning before joining the Grimer family for a very tasty Sunday roast lunch. Rob and Fi then took us to Croome Park, an 18th century country house and estate where we enjoyed a walk through the house and grounds. Rob then dragged me out into the fields to go blackberry picking and Derek and I dropped in for a chat with Lesley's parents, Ray and Doreen, before supper and a chat with Rob and ...
... This was really great. The story was told by 5-6 actors who were in each of the rooms. They were really clever and the show was interactive. Levi was put in the dock in the court and charged with weeing in the well in Warwick. After he revealed that he was Australian, the judge knew right away that he was guilty. We all had to boo the accused... it was a lot of fun. There were a few times that we jumped... but on the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Grosvenor Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon
The Grosvenor is part of the Best Western chain on the one-way circulatory system in central Stratford, so is very accessible by car; it has has quite a large car park, but this can be full by 7pm. It is situated only a 5-minute stroll from Stratford town centre, and another 5 minutes will get you to the Canal Basin, River Avon and the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre; it really is an excellent location. On the walk into town you pass the Stratford Upon Avon canal which is always rather busy with interesting leisure traffic - you can help with the locks, if you feel so inclined!
Good location and comfortable
Spent two nights B&B at the Grosvenor while enjoying a super weekend in Stratford. Hotel convenient base to leave car and walk into the town. Offered an upgrade to superior room with AC and fridge, water and newspapers for £10 - well worth it. Enjoyed a superb 4 course meal at the Georgetown a malaysian restaurant on Sheep Street - highly recommended.
Nice Surroundings and Ideal for the Town
Just returned from The Grosvenor, excellent hotel just a short work to the River / Theatre / Town.
Room was very good, recently re-furbished with new decor and furniture. Overlooking the local school (Half term break so can't comment on school term noise etc)
Evening meal - excellent. If you book the DBB deal you are allowed £18.50 towards the A La Carte menu if you don't fancy the Table D'hote.
Breakfast - excellent.
Service in restaurant- top class
Smoking allowed in the bar , which should change in the future.
All in all an excellent hotel, you are allowed to leave your car in the hotel car park if you wish to explore Stratford on foot.
We had picked this hotel as previous reviews and photos seemed to point out that this was a "reasonable" hotel. Well l HAVE major doubts. When we arrived they had a "special" that you could upgrade to their new deluxe room for only â¤10. This room had a fridge, air conditioning etc. So we decided to upgrade. Firstly the fridge was warm, and the heating was stuck on. We complained about both items but were told there was nothing they could do. The hotel has obviously undergone MANY extensions in its life and the place is quite literally a maza of corridors. We found other guests laughing as we wound around in search of our room...!!!
Great location, pleasant hotel
Hotel had a great location, just 5 minutes walk from centre and river. Car park extends to rear of hotel, we had no problem. We had booked a room with air conditioning and it was needed for the summer nights. Good breakfast room, good food and good service.
Nice hotel, excellent location
A lovely 3 star hotel, located within 2 minutes walk of the town centre and 3 minutes of the theatres. Plenty of parking available without additional charges. The hotel is very well maintained and clean. The rooms are a little small but nicely decorated. You could have upgraded to an Executive room for an additional £10.00 per night. This gave you larger air conditioned room - how much larger I'm not sure. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfasts were pleasant although I'm glad it was included in the room cost because @ £11.95 for a full english and cereal I think I would have been finding a suitable cafe close by.
For a couple of days break in this lovely town you can't go far wrong.
Position just right
Stayed one night this week and explored Stratford whilst partner was at a conference. Hotel clean and comfortable and our small suite at the back was really quiet. Breakfast fine but this hotel really wins for its position. Easy walk to town centre and all tourist attractions.
Good location, good hotel
The Grosvenor is an attractive hotel just blocks from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre -- while not luxury accomodations -- it is a good value. You're also within close walking distance of Will's birthplace, shopping and restaurants.
I would avoid the nearby Red Lion Pub for food -- it's a set menu from something called Brewers Fayre -- and is not good quality. I'd look for some options on nearby Sheep Street.
My friend and I recently stayed sat the Grosvenor Hotel. We booked it through the internet. The location is great for touring Stratford Upon Avon. It is a 5 minute walk to the theaters and about a 10 minute walk to everything else. There are plenty of reastaurants and other tourist facilities nearby. We upgraded to an air conditioned room. (It was unbearably hot while we were there.)The desk personnel were friendly and more helpful than the official tourist information office. The only real disadvantage of this hotel was reaching the rooms on the ground floor. We had to go up a flight of steps, cross the length of the hotel and go down another flight of steps to get to our room. A case of " you can't get there from here." But I would recommend the hotel highly.
Very nice hotel
Just a quisk note to recommend the Grosvenor Hotel, Stratford. Very friendly and helpfull staff in all areas of the hotel. Food was excellent and the rooms although a bit small were very clean and well maintained. Only a 3-5 minute stroll to the centre of town. There is also a lovely Thai restaurant oposite but I recommend you book as it is quite small.
