Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location for the theatre and the shops, the building it’s self is very impressive and quaint. Only down sides to this hotel is the car park gets full quickly, although it’s no real problem you just have to leave you car key. The Room could do with a bit of TLC, we stayed in a junior suite but the attention to detail was missing and some basic investment needed. Overall we enjoyed our visit and would recommend it as a place to stay

This hotel is right in the centre of Stratford. It has lots of atmosphere, comfy lounges, tasty food at good prices and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It is a short, level walk from all the Shakespeare sights and the theatre. We did not use the hotel car park but chose instead to park at the NCP 5 mins away. The receptionist gave us a discount card so nearly 3 days parking cost only £9. Breakfast at the hotel was £10 pp and was fine. The automatic toaster made super toast - much better than getting it made in the kitchen. We will definitely be back. One minor point, dogs are allowed into their owners rooms - this may put some people off.

Excellent location with car parking. Staff were very pleasant and the service received was first class. Rooms were quirky with the mix of old and modern upgrades. Comfortable. The breakfast let the hotel down badly with the food not very appetising and left on the hotplates. Quite tasteless to be honest. In our opinion a comfortable three star hotel with tradesmen/reps midweek and weekend tourists.

If this hotel were not in walking distrance of the Royal Shakespeare company it would get 2 stars from us. Comfortable but depressing rooms - the outside of the hotel looks better than the inside. So so service. Pleasant breakfast room and bar, good natured but ineffective staff. Slow service.

Stayed just one night on our way home from the south coast Got a good deal on Our room was in the old part of this fabulous hotel and was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and car parking although chargeable was on site. The location is excellent in the centre of Stratford which is a lovely town. Didnt eat in the hotel as it is a Marco Pierre White restaurant so a bit pricey but there are plenty of nice places to eat near by. Will definitly return.

Stayed just one night. All very easy, with parking behind the hotel. It was not busy. Our room at the front was in the old part and we liked it. The room and bedding were clean and tidy. I did not spot the secondaryu glazing was partialy open, so there was a little more noise from the street, but we slept well. Coffee is the bar is very expensive for a push button machine and the breakfast at £15 was too pricey, so we found an excellent alternative nearby for less than half. We would visit again, but note it has a lot of rooms and has tour parties. We must have just missed the,

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a wedding party and from the outside the building is stunning, however we found it to be very over priced for what it actually was. We don't consider £300 for 2 nights in the low season a good deal and the entire hotel internally is dated and needs renovating as its nowhere near the standard to justify that sort of price. Location wise it was in an excellent part of Stratford, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was good.

Business trip , carpark in the middle of Stratford. Rooms very eclectic, staff very friendly and attentive. Restaurant food great menu , great base .company deal . but enjoy the overnight stay, corridors can sound noisey , old world feel

A wonderful place to stay. Rooms very clean, excellent breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent location for all to see in Stratford upon Avon. Would highly recommend. Very good value for money. Thank you for a lovely couple of days.

The Shakespeare Stratford-Upon-Avon is a hotel with character. Over five hundred years old it exhibits some original beams, very creaky floorboards, a range of levels on the same floor and restricted room sizes. The basic fittings are, of course, quite modern. Some rooms have greater charm than others. The staff were friendly and efficient and a good but somewhat limited breakfast was available. The hotel is well-located in the centre of Stratford within easy walking distance of Shakespeare’s grave, birth place and the site of his house.
