« Mercure Shakespeare Stratford upon Avon »

A fantastic hotel that has such historic presence in the town. Excellent service from friendly staff and superb rooms. The hotel is centrally located for all the main places to visit. I don't want to stay anywhere else when I'm in Stratford!

James L, General Manager at Mercure Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel, responded to this review

.....and we don't want you to stay anywhere else! Thank you for your kind comments. grahamb104, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon! Best wishes James Lys / General Manager

« Fabulous as ever »

The only issue we have is the bar. Please reopen the quill bar. The one at Marco's is tacky and uncomfortable. Completely out of character with the rest of the hotel and since this has opened we have not used the hotel bar whereas we used to enjoy the quill bar, as did many others. I can appreciate you need a separate one for Marco's but the hotel guests deserve to have their old one back!

James L, General Manager at Mercure Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Trish B Thank you for your comments and also for returning so often... it's appreciated. The good news is I'm planning to re-open the Quill Bar in the next few weeks - so it should be open next time you visit. I look forward to welcoming you back Regards James Lys

« Good central location »

You cannot get a better location in Stratford than The Shakespeare. The hotel has olde worlde charm with its beautiful black and white façade and its quirky uneven floors and small corridors. We stayed in junior suite which consisted of a good size bedroom and lounge area with the bonus of having a tv in both rooms....Would definitely stay there again.

James L, General Manager at Mercure Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for the great review, alisonjgar, and I love your Olde English! Yes, definitely worth upgrading to a suite, and no arguments about channel choice! We look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes James Lys/General Manager

« 3 night stay at Mercure Shakespeare Hotel, Stratford Upon Avon »

Excellent Dog Friendly Hotel.... We stayed in the hotel wing due to taking "Jack".. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. The hotel is right in the centre of town, being close to plenty of good restaurants, pubs, shops and walks by the river. We payed £10 each for breakfast when we arrived at the hotel, and we found there was a good choice of hot and cold food....Lots to see and do in the beautiful town! We would definitely return to this hotel, although we had to pay £10 a day car parking....

Management6630, General Manager at Mercure Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Kkelmore Thank you for taking the time to tell us about yours stay with us. I am rather delighted to read that you and Jack had a pleasant stay with us. I have to agree, Stratford is simply stunning with so much to do. As you may have noticed car parking is of a premium in the city, hence the charge for the convenience and availability. We do hope that we get the chance to welcome you, especially Jack back to our hotel. Regards Pash Naidoo General Manager

« disappointing »

Expensive for quality of hotel, not told when booking that car park was extra £10 per night. Breakfast was not hot nor was coffee, had to ask for hot water.Booked online at £107 per night added 2nd night on phone and had to pay £119, was told there were different rates for online booking. This is England since when could we not reserve accommodation verbally ?

Management6630, Manager at Mercure Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel, responded to this review

Dear TC90, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience following your recent stay with us at Mercure Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel. I am extremely sorry that your stay did not fully meet your expectations. As I am sure you will appreciate, the hotel only benefit from a limited number of on-site parking spaces which are chargeable. Please accept my apologies if you found our breakfast offering not to be hot enough, I will ensure to action this very point with the team. IN regards to your extended reservation, I am sorry if a miscommunication took place. As I am sure you are aware, rates for accommodation vary depending on occupancy in the hotel but also the city and last minutes bookings can often be higher than those made in advance. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back on property during your next visit to Stratford. Yours sincerely Sebastien Brunet Interim General manager

« Lovely stay at the Shakespeare Mercure »

Lovely, characterful hotel with friendly staff, a wonderful ambiance and beautiful surroundings. This hotel is convenient to get around Stratford on Avon. Only the parking at the hotel is the one issue that prevents perfection - there are not enough parkin spaces for all residents.
