Good Hotel Guide Review
Tim and Denise Perkin’s B&B, on the outskirts of Stratford, has lots of little extras to make guests feel at home: complimentary sherry, espresso coffee and home-made treats in the lounge are regularly replenished. Bedrooms are well supplied with bathrobes, a DAB radio/iPod docking station, home-baked cake, a silent fridge with chilled water and fresh milk. ‘Our room was clean and comfortable, but we would have liked some comfy chairs.’ In warm months, stay a moment – for a midsummer daydream – in the garden and cushion-strewn summer house. Good choice at breakfast includes home-made granola, and smoked haddock with poached eggs. Small lounge, dining room. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). No background music. Garden. Parking. Bicycle storage. 1 mile W of centre (on a bus route); within walking distance of Anne Hathaway’s cottage and gardens. Stratford racecourse nearby. Children over 12 welcomed. 5 bedrooms (1 on ground floor). Per room B&B £110–£130 (2-night min. stay preferred at weekends). Closed Christmas Day, New Year.
