Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hugely disappointed. Placed in the new wing of the building which I found characterless and 'meh'. View overlooking car park. The 'Privilege' room rate of £165 certainly did not leave me feeling privileged in any way......had far better for far less before. Stains on carpet, scuff marks on walls, bath water a strange yellow colour. Would I return or recommend...

We stayed at the hotel for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This quirky Tudor building offered an insight into the world of Shakespeare and differed from more run of the mill hotels. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were polite and friendly. The only downside was that it was very warm and we were unable...

The location is great. The room was clean but the overall feeling of the hotel is tired. Get the breakfast included in your rate at 19p is a little much for what you get. The bar could use a better selection as well.

Dear jeffb33 Thank you for your comments and I have already arranged for a larger selection of drinks in our Quill Bar - our Marco's bar I believe already offers a great choice. I look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes James Lys

Stayed here with my partner as a surprise for his birthday, upon arrival in our room the staff of the Mercure had left him a birthday card and some cakes and biscuits which was lovely of them! We had booked a double privilege room and the room itself was fantastic with a gigantic double bed, fridge, sofa, nespresso machine, dressing...

A wonderful two night stay at the Shakespeare in Stratford. The staff were excellent, location excellent and the hotel was superb. I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to others.

Breaking our journey from Scotland to the south coast, we spent two nights here. This is a very historic building in the centre of Stratford. The location is good, everywhere within walking distance. Unable to get a space in the hotel car park, unloading was a bit of a palaver, but the hotel has an arrangement with a nearby multi-storey...

This is dead centre of town and a minute from the theatre. You could not ask for better. We were in a separate wing. Our room was old fashioned (meant to be) but huge! The bed was also about 7ft wide. It does get noisy outside at night so if this bothers you then ask for a room not on...
