We had a lovely weekend break at yha Stratford upon Avon. Great property and grounds. Enjoyed breakfast and dinner in the hostel. Just right for us and our two children. Location ideal to visit the British motor museum!

Stayed with my daughter and grandson. Made to feel very welcome and we really enjoyed our stay. Accommodation, typical of what I would expect but a sharing shelf seems to have disappeared, we didn't have to make our own beds and staff are smartly uniformed which are noticeable changes since I used to take my own kids YHA'ing. The biggest...

Thank you for taking the time to place this review. Our restaurant serves food form 7:30 to 21:45 and as you say there is plenty of equipment in the self catering kitchen should you want to cook for yourself. We're always happy to hear about guests great experiences, especially when they involve a new generation of YHAers in the making...

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the YHA to see that it was in fact an elegantly refurbished country house. Sitting on the edge of a field with a quaintly rundown garden out back, it was just what I was looking for after spending 5 hectic days in London. The room itself was basic and the Wi-Fi didn't...

Thank you ever so much for taking the time out to place your review and share your experience with the wider community.

Excellent staff could not do enough for us as we had to cancel them couldn't get there due to weather they just accommodated us no extra charge. The meals were excellent and rooms comfortable and very clean.

The YHA in Stratford is an easy and quick bus ride away from the crush of the high street and tourist magnets. The building is a stately one, remodeled for the YHA experience. The staff are helpful and approachable and the various facilities were well maintained.

We stayed here for 5 nights, over Christmas as well. Initially we were a little concerned with its distance to Stratford-upon-Avon town but we soon found that it was a blessing in disguise because it was strategically placed between Stratford and the beautiful Charlecote! Both are within walking distance (we love to walk so 2-3 miles isn't much for us)...
