« Tired and shabby »

Room was tired and shabby. Carpets old and worn. Towels were well pat their best. No tea in our room the first night. Thought maybe it was a coffee only sort of place. Not so. Tea was provided the second day. Had dinner in the restaurant the first night. Ordered steak. Good quality meat spoiled by bad cooking.

« Disappointing »

Have stayed at many Mercure hotels and they are generally ok to good.However not this stay !1.Came back to our room at 1500 and it was still not cleaned.Did it ourselves since we wanted to rest before theatre2.Given wake up call at 0700 which we did not request.3.Getting out of the car park took 20 minutes whilst various cars had to be moved.They should not allow cars in if there is no space.All in all not up to the aspired standard

room comfortable and it is a good location; however in room entertainment very poor. Only radio stations available were 1, 2 and Five Live. Only about 7 TV channels were available. No access to Freeview. Bring your own radio.

Absolutely lovely hotel full of character and charm situated right in the heart of the town which was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly and our suite was perfect. We could have happily stayed another night so will definitely return.

« Room was fine but tables in breakfast room were dirty and sticky! »

Watching tables being cleared by suited male did not inspire confidence.Our breakfast table in corner of breakfast room was so unhygienic that the milk jug stuck to the table.The actual breakfast cooked to order was very nicely presented and very acceptable.Public rooms and toilets were fine as was our bedroom.

« Such a lovely place, and a lovely room! »

Thank you, Mr Lys, for your welcome. We really enjoyed our stay. very impressed that after the shower head blew off, your staff were able to fix it while we were out - on a Saturday evening! One thing: the bath was really slippery to stand in, and needs one of those rubbery mats. That was room 141.

« There was a warm welcome, a comfortable room, and a very pleasant atmosphere. »

Reception welcomed us warmly and we were provided with a comfortable and spacious room. This is important to us as my wife now travels in a wheel chair. The chamber maid kindly serviced our room early so that the room would be available to us for the whole of the afternoon. The lunch we had was served promptly and courteously by the waitress working in the lounge. The food was of a high quality. The room service promptly provided rather super sandwiches at tea time on our second day. This hotel remains the best place to stay in Stratford prior to going to the theatre!

« As excellent as ever »

I keep returning to this excellent hotel. The quality remains very high. The General Manager is visible and greeted me in the breakfast room. The quality of a hotel is judged not by what goes wrong but how a problem is dealt with. The heating in my room was not working properly. In no time Adam produced a portable heater which instantly fixed the problem.

« Obvious lack of staff »

We had to ask for robes as they were not in our room. We came back at 3pm from a day out , and our rooms had not been serviced, it was pretty obvious that you have a lack of staff, as everything took an age to be dealt with

Our hotel has responded to the review

Dear Mrs W., Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at The Shakespeare, and I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I have noted your comments about the apparent lack of staff and length of time it took to get things done - I sincerely apologise that these issues affected your stay so much. It is true that that weekend we had sickness in the housekeeping department which meant 2 members of staff were not able to come to work - and you experienced the results of that. In light of your comments, please do not hesitate to email me directly on h6… on the next occasion you plan to visit Stratford-upon-Avon; I'll ensure you receive a free upgrade and I'll also include free breakfast in the price of the bedroom as a gesture of apology. Thank you again for taking the time to write to me, Mrs W., and I hope to hear from you soon and restoring your faith in The Shakespeare. Yours sincerely James Lys General Manager

« Very comfortable stay right in the heart of Stratford »

We had a lovely prestige room overlooking the New Place Gardens— large and comfortable. The quilt on the bed was a little short, however, and not quite heavy enough for the weather.

« Need to improve services... »

I stayed some times at this hotel and I can see that the services are decreasing in terms of quality. Reception is not very friendly and there is no support for luggage. Also they did not mention the Le Club. I saw that the breakfast is worse than other times...no cheese or ham for example. Very basic UK breakfast. The other things are good as always.

We enjoyed the visit to the Mercure Stratford upon Avon Shakespeare Hotel. We were in the old part of the hotel which has a lot of character. All the staff were friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast which had good choice. There is a small bar with open fires which we enjoyed a drink in front off.
