As of today, not much much other than the usual. I have a new client, Halfords, so that's why I'm in Birmingham travelling home each weekend. However, the plan is that from around May next year, we go off driving around the European land mass visiting hot countries when it's cooler there and colder countries when it's hotter. We are spending the next few months planning so there's not much detail to be seen here yet. Watch this ...

... haven't had internet at my flat for the past two weeks already if not more. I check tickets for the train and they have gone up BUT I have received a message from a host, so now I have a dilemma. No time to think, it begins to look dicey where I am standing and all the cabs have now moved on, and so shall I are my thoughts. Still not finished with my booking, I head to another bar, closed of course, near my place. Roughly 45 min later and after the day now passed by, I end ...

Village Hopping in the Cotswolds

... I had a pretty strange accent as well: "Oh....you speak American English, not Japanese!" Good thing the British-Brazilian was with me. I made him do all the talking!

Bourton-on-the-Water was so picturesque it didn't seem real. Apart from its outstanding beauty, the treasure of the little village was the Motoring Museum. Not only did it display nicely preserved cars, but each era was represented with ...

... And there was a runway right near us that the actors used all the time. I was so close! All of the actors were amazing. I absolutely loved it. I was really frightened that I wouldn't understand it.... but that was no problem at all. And it was funny and sad. It was great. Then it was over. And I went outside...and it was raining. Quite heavily. But I thought I'd walk to the Stage Door and have a look. I was one off the railing. There were about ...

    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.
