The Townhouse Stratford
This small boutique hotel is quite a venue. Right in the heart of Stratford, this 400-year-old building, just a few minutes' walk from pretty much everything you might want to see in town, has a buzzy pub and restaurant downstairs along with twelve very comfortable en-suite bedrooms on the upper floors, all of which have recently been refurbished in a highly contemporary style, with super-king-sized beds, crisp cotton sheets and deliciously fluffy duvets, and bathrooms with high-pressure rainfall showers and Noble Isle toiletries; some also have freestanding baths. All the rooms have tea and coffee-making facilities, including Nespresso machines, mineral water, biscuits and – a nice touch – a small decanter of port! They also have TV/DVD players, free Wifi and iPod docking stations and there's a small DVD library in reception. All in all it's both a cosy and contemporary place to stay in a great location – plus it has the added bonus of the excellent bar and restaurant, which give a busy, urban feel to the place. Perfect for a both a long weekend break in Stratford, or just an overnight DB&B on a theatre-going trip.
12 very comfortable en-suite double rooms, ranging for Standard, through Superior to Luxury.
Standard rooms with breakfast range from £105 (midweek) a night to £145 at weekends; Superior rooms £130–£170; Luxury rooms £165–£205.
Open all year.
The hotel is easy to reach by train - Stratford has regular direct connections to London, Oxford and Birmingham, and the station is a 5-minute taxi ride or a 15-minute walk away. The hotel is similarly easy to find by car, but its central location means that parking may be an issue: they have 12 subsidised spaces in Rother St NCP (£4.50 a day), a minute's drive away, but otherwise there are parking spaces right outside and around the town centre or it's the pay-and-display car park nearby.
