Why We Love This Hotel

  • This traditional hotel sits in the historic centre of Stratford-upon-Avon, a short stroll away from Shakespeare's Birthplace
  • The sights and attractions of the medieval market town, such as the Guild Chapel, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Church of the Holy Trinity and a wide variety of shops and bars, are within walking distance of the property
  • There's a Marco's New York Italian restaurant on site, while afternoon tea and cocktails are on offer in The Quil Bar & Lounge
  • "Staff encountered were attentive, pleasantly dedicated and keen to ensure the stay was as comfortable as possible," says The Daily Telegraph


With its striking half-timbered facade, the Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Stratford-upon-Avon, dating back to the early 17th century. The property has won praise from The Daily Telegraph, which highlights its "attentive, pleasantly dedicated" staff.

The hotel is just over 10 minutes' walk from the railway station, and a 5-minute walk from Shakespeare's Birthplace, the Guild Chapel, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the RSC Tower (the climb is worth it for the views). The River Avon is also a short stroll away. Anne Hathaway's Cottage, where Shakespeare's future wife grew up, is 25 minutes' walk away -- this well-preserved example of 16th-century Tudor architecture is surrounded by pretty gardens.

Downstairs, Marco's New York Italian restaurant (part of the Marco Pierre White empire) serves a mix of pasta, steak, ribs and handmade pizzas, and has an outdoor terrace. The Quil Bar & Lounge offers a relaxed environment for afternoon tea or a drink.

The hotel has plenty of original features, including Tudor-style leaded windows, beams and antique furniture. The bedrooms are spread across four buildings -- including a separate contemporary wing -- and all have a modern finish with free Wi-Fi, and tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Great Central location! The Staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was small but full of period charm and character. Our breakfast was excellent and included good quality bacon and sausage. We think the value cannot be surpassed and would love to stay again sometime.

We loved the log fires on the first evening, but disappointed to discover they were not lit on the second night of our stay.
