Stratford: tourists tourists everwhere

A travel blog entry by worthj1970


In the 1990s, when I trotted off to Japan, my sister went to Stratford upon Avon to study Shakespeare. It is a really cool thing to do. First, everyone should go overseas to live. I think my country would be much better off if more of my fellow citizens had spent more than a week or two away from home. Second, to go somewhere and study what …

Anne: The lines of the song by Peter, Paul and Mary have been running through my head of late- (wonder why!). We've been planning and looking forward to this mega adventure for so long.... You must understand that it all began when we booked a cruise back in October 2012!! We've been asked, "Which bit are you looking forward to the most?" And my reply has always been, " The car coming to take us to the airport". ...

Shakespeare's Home

After a did my fair share of sleeping from the jet lag, and Logan spent the morning at the gym, we decided to make a day trip at Shakespeare's hometown. It is only about an hour and half from Stafford so it would make for an easy day trip.
As soon as we were off the motorway, we ended up on a two lane road that ran between numerous farms, including one with llamas! It made it difficult to drive without going off the road since I was sightseeing while driving. We ...

Good nights sleep on nice soft bed. Got to chipping Camden at 09.30 very"hazy" and overcast, weather got better as day progressed and the afternoon was glorious. No cows but plenty of horses, came across two leaning on a gate waiting for me to open it, didn't fancy being trampled so it was over the gate for me. Loads of lambs that look like there at least a week old. 18 miles, 2500 ft of ...

    The room was very nice, but the hotel staff honestly didn't seem like they were used to dealing with tourists, for all that it is a hotel named Shakespeare in Stratford. Breakfast was fair at best, and service was not good at all. Again, nice room; just not sure it was a good value for the money.

    Charming old hotel with some updating

    from

    We stayed here for 2 nights in February 2005. It was during a cold snap -- it snowed while we were there. Overall -- a positive experience, but I'd consider a cheaper place next time.

    Highly Recommended

    from

    We stayed here for a birthday weekend and it was perfect. The hotel is in a perfect location to walk to anywhere within stratford. The staff were friendly and we had afternoon tea which was lovely. The room was very impressive and comfortable with a nice bathroom. I would highly recommend staying here on a special occasion.

    Fantastic location!

    from

    Came for a weekend break and couldn't have picked a more fantastic hotel. Staff were excellent, room was delightful with wooden beamed ceilings and walls etc.

    Unfortunatley didnt have dinner in the restaurant but the buffet breakfast was wonderful.

    The location was ideal for the sight seeing and shopping, a must hotel for every Shakespere lover!!

    What a great Place to stay

    from

    Had decided to treat us to a weekend away in Stratford upon Avon?

    Great hotel in central Stratford

    from

    Great hotel with very friendly service. The public areas were outstanding, nice big roaring fires, comfy leather sofas giving a cosy atmosphere especially as we stayed in winter. The food and drinks were slightly expensive and the rooms, although comfortable, were a little out of keeping with the rest of the hotel. The bathroom was luxurious but the rest of the room was more basic. Would definitely stay there again.

    Delightful!

    from

    We chose to stay at this hotel for one night in June, purely because I'd heard that Stratford-Upon-Avon is such a beautiful place - and it certainly is - superbly picturesque! Compared to other hotels in the area, this one had the most character, and it is definitely in the best location as everything is in walking distance.

    Location is perfect!

    from

    This hotel was easy to access via car (with a plan and a map of Stratford). Parking was an additional 5GBP/day. The room was a good size, clean, and in a very very old building in Stratford. Large lounge areas downstairs and a really excellent breakfast (both cooked and buffet) served in un airconditioned room. We weren't sure the breakfast would be included with a priceline bid, so we called before breakfast and were pleasantly surprised that it was.

    Best atmosphere. Great service. Nice location.

    from

    If you are a real Shakespeare fan, you can't beat this place for atmosphere. It is right near where Shakespeare's New Place used to be...in fact, it is often used as an example of what New Place might have looked like.

    GREAT food, wonderful service. It is a short walk to the Theatres.

    I would recommend it to anyone looking for a real Shakespeare experience.

    We used to stay at the Arden (now Thistle) which has a better location, but the Shakespeare Hotel is a bit better all around except for that.

    Great Place to Stay

    from

    Gorgeous hotel in heart of Shakespear country. Went for 1yr anniversary with husbund. Rooms were very romantic even if ours backed onto carpark the decor was so sumptious and luxurious we didn't care!

    Breakfast was very scrummy in intimate restaurant.

    Great Hotel located in the central area many places to walk and shop nearby.

    from

    The entire Cotswold area is really a nice place to visit. I did little research on the area but I will deffinately go back again someday. The ponds and the attmosphere are very serene.
