Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is old and charming. From the friendliness of the staff, to the location, cleanliness, to the comfort of the bed, our stay was absolutely perfect. We unfortunately had to leave early due to an emergency at home, but this stay left us wanting more. We will be back.

A nice old hotel steeped in history. The rooms are very comfortable but the floors are quite squeaky. Good breakfast in hotel with many surrounding restaurants to meet your needs.

Perfect location for a good night out: dinner at Lamb's restaurant on Sheep Street and a play at the RSC theatre. One tip: There are *two* Chapel Streets in Stratford and most sat navs only list the wrong one which is in the suburbs. Set your sat nav to the intersection of Sheep Street and High Street instead. The entrance to the parking lot (10 pounds/day for hotel guests) is on Sheep Street.

Upon entering the lobby, it appears to be a very old quaint building with rustic exposed oak beams and large wing-backed chairs and large fireplaces. Very quaint and cozy. Our rooms were at the top of the stairs and along a narrow hallway. No elevator, so it was a long haul. All of this was of little consequence when we saw the room. It was newly decorated and absolutely gorgeous! A four poster modern styling bedroom with windows that swung open to the surprisingly quiet street with a spectacular view. Flat panel TVs in both the bedroom and the adjoining sitting room that had a settee , chair and fridge that also had the same vintage leaded glass windows that opened onto the street. The bathroom was ultra modern and spa-like. Air conditioning was quiet and efficient. This was by far the best hotel room we had on our two week travel through the UK. The only downside I can think of was that we were charged extra for parking.
