Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


This 16th-century property in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon was formerly an alehouse, and still has original Tudor features such as half timbering, slanted windows, oak beams and an open fireplace. The Falcon Hotel is a great option if you want to be in the thick of it all -- with the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Shakespeare's Birthplace, Bridge Street and the High Street all a short walk away.

There are 83 bedrooms at the hotel, each with free Wi-Fi. Standard rooms are in the main house and the modern wing, and Executive Rooms are all in the main house. Dinner is in the AA-Rosette-awarded Will's Place restaurant.

The Avon Ring -- a 5-minute walk away -- is a canal ring that connects Stratford-upon-Avon with Evesham, Tewkesbury and Worcester.

While in Stratford, you can visit the scenes of key moments in Shakespeare's life, starting at his birthplace and childhood home on Henley Street. Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens, where Shakespeare courted his future wife, is a 25-minute walk from the hotel. A short drive outside Stratford is Mary Arden’s Farm, where his grandparents lived -- explore the hay bale maze, see a falconry display or watch the farmer's wife prepare home-grown food in the farmhouse kitchen. Finish at Holy Trinity Church, where the Bard was both baptised and buried.

Other attractions include Stratford Butterfly Farm, which has the UK's largest collection of tropical butterflies, and Stratford Town Walk, winner of the Tourism Initiative of the Year at the Pride of Stratford Awards 2015.

Warwick and Kenilworth castles are both within a 25-minute drive of the hotel.

Enjoyed Most: The management and staff were very accommodating, we had an issue with being able to eat at the hotel on the evening of our stay, it was agreed that we could have a meal at dinner time instead, which helped us a great deal.
Other Comments: All the staff were very pleasant and helpful but the reception staff and bar staff were particularly good

Enjoyed Most: It was a gift for my son and daughter in law whilst we looked after our grand daughter overnight. From what he has told us it was a very pleasant experience. Their room was very quiet which suited them admirably and they enjoyed their evening meal. Breakfast was ok but not exceptional
Other Comments: We chose this hotel for them because we knew it from 17th December 1977 as it was here we spent the first two nights of our honeymoon and when we moved on to a hotel near Salisbury for the final 3 days, it was so poor by comparison that we cancelled the last night and came back to the Falcon. My daughter and her husband love the hotel and have stayed there two or three times already. I think maybe it is time we revisited it as well! Answers below relate to my son not us
