Just spent two days in this lovely B and B. Received a really warm welcome on arrival which went very smoothly because of the clear and concise directions and information we were sent beforehand. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds really comfy. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order and was delicious. A nice touch to have fresh milk readily available for drinks in the room. It’s located very close to the centre of Stratford and it’s lovely bars and restaurants, also a perfect location for the theatre. Highly recommend.
From before arrival all was well, great communication from Rob regarding check and parking, very nice room and most comfortable. Useful information and advice about Stratford from the off from Rob and Clare our hosts. room was great and breakfast was very tasty and more than enough.Situated minutes from Stratford's centre it is ideally placed for walking or as a base to explore the area all major roads are easy to access. I would highly recommend Avonlea to all. BTW, the dog is a hero too.
Avonlea Guesthouse is a great place to stay when visiting Stratford-Upon-Avon. Rob and Clare are the kind of hosts who have thought of every question, provided for every request, even before you have thought or asked them. Park your car and walk to Stratford's historic landmarks, the River Avon and the RSC theatre. Book a meal at one of the many restaurants in town (Rob and Clare will gladly help you). Have a great night's sleep in one of their clean, comfortable rooms, then awake to a delicious breakfast. What more could you ask for!!!
Avonlea is easy to find, I walked from the railway station, about a 15 minutes walk. The guest house is very near to the Butterfly farm and the city centre, all within walking distance. The room was a decent size and I slept really well. The room smells good too! The breakfast was great, Rob has perfected the art of poaching eggs! They made sure I had enough supplies of tea and milk in my room each day. Clare was really helpful in showing me a shortcut to the racecourse through the park and also made sure I didn't get drenched in torrential rain! Much appreciated. The only downside was I didn't get to meet the dog that other guests have referred to!
We originally intended our visit to be in 2020, but due to the Covid pandemic it took until this month to finally happen! Rob and Clare were very welcoming, we had a lovely cooked breakfast every morning, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Four of us stayed for two nights. Avonlea was perfect for one day at the races and one soaking up the "culture" that Stratford has to offer. Excellent breakfast, very friendly hosts, spotlessly clean and well laid out en-suite ( not the biggest, the more generously proportioned might find certain morning activities a bit cramped but fine for the average build). When we return to bash the bookies again this will be our first port of call.
Rob and Clare are lovely hosts and the excellent breakfasts set you up for the day. The en-suite room had everything you would need and was very clean. Avonlea is 3 - 4 minutes walk from the river and just a few minutes further and you're in the town. What more could you want?!
Well cooked breakfast. Tried the herby beans, and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and full English, sausages were very tasty Comfortable super king bed and friendly hosts. Lovely to meet Vern their beautiful and well trained and behaved labrador. All in all a great stay, so many thanks to Claire and Rob, we would return and recommend.
We were welcomed with a warm, friendly greeting from Clare who was great, imparting her knowledge of Stratford and giving us some excellent recommendations of where to visit, eat & drink. We had a warm, comfortable and clean room to the back of the house which was very quiet. We both slept really well in the comfy beds. The B&B has parking and is ideally situated. We ate at the Boathouse which from the outside does not do it justice but the inside and food was delicious. We met Rob at breakfast who was a lovely host and made a delicious breakfast. We would definitely return. Thank you
Had an excellent stay with Clare & Rob, fabulous hosts very informative of places to visit. Our room was lovely clean & fresh, breakfast was great with plenty of choice, Great location only a couples of minutes walk into Stratford Would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone, We shall definitely be visiting again
