“Fantastic base in Stratford”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Avid users of tripadvisor, this is our first contribution. This B and B in Stratford is a wonderful place to base yourself to take in the town and surrounding countryside. Hosts friendly and helpful. Best breakfasts of our 3 week trip! Spotlessly clean and super comfortable beds. Parking is across road in public carpak(Host provides voucher so is free) which may be inconvenient for those with mobility problems but did not worry us at all. Highly recommend for singles/couples and family stay.A+++++++++++++++++++++++++

We stayed at the Emsley Guest House last month for four nights and had a great time. The guest house is well located, an easy walk from both the train station and downtown. The room was comfortable and very well maintained. Most importantly the owners were very friendly and helpful. We felt they actually cared about their guests, too rare these days. Breakfast was excellent as well. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay and we highly recommend it if you are in that area.

A very conveniently located guesthouse, just a few minutes walk from Shakespeare's Birthplace. The room is well decorated and more importantly, spotless clean. We stayed in a spacious family room with 2 bathrooms. The only shortfall is the lack of parking space. This, however, is not a big problem as there is a public car park just opposite the guesthouse. Ray, the co-owner is a nice man and we would like to thank him for his kind hospitality. I hope he likes the Malaysian White Coffee which we let him try.

emsley, Owner at Emsley Guest House, responded to this review, 10 November 2011
Thank you for doing a review of our Guest House. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay. Thank you for the coffee, it was very nice.

We would like to clarify your point about the parking in that, because we do only have one parking space on our frontage, we provide tickets for the public car park across the road free of charge. These tickets are purchased by us from Stratford Council and we give them to our guests to use free of charge.

Coulson Family,

We had a lovely time at Emsley. Clean, comfortable room. Beautifully cooked breakfast with a wide range of options. Helpful advice but never intrusive. A few minutes from town centre and theatre. Looking forward to their Afternoon Tea special next time we stay. Annie (Ireland)
