A list of “Important Things to Know” is posted in the room which contains a virtual menu of fines to be levied at the discretion of the management for any transgression. I found this to be unwelcoming, somewhat threatening/intimidating, and unnecessary. Second, while I understand the following cannot be changed without considerable expense, the stairs in the property are very steep, small/narrow, and bend sharply. It might be an unsuitable place for physically challenged patrons. Finally, the 10 am checkout time is quite early.
It is great value for money at the price. The rooms are clean, of adequate size, and contain all necessary items. The furnishings are relatively new and solid. The property is located only a few minutes (walking) from the train station and only a few more minutes (also walking) into town to see all the “tourist sights”. The free wifi is superb, fast, and reliable! The proprietor is helpful, greets guests on arrival, and offers free maps of Stratford and other tourist information.
