Short walk to train station and Stratford-Upon-Avon sights Clean room with thoughtful touches Good breakfast Room was quiet despite being on a busy street
Room was very small Steep staircase (no lift)
Ray & Mel were very friendly - just the right amount of support and contact when needed. The 5-bed room we stay in was well equipped, well decorated and very comfortable - felt like there was enough space for the whole family (and our instruments!). Breakfast was served at the time we ordered it, and was delicious. Location was also perfect: only 5 minutes from the centre of Stratford, and free parking in the car park across the road. We are all looking forward to returning to The Elmsley.
You will find it hard to find a better guest house. We were at the Emsley during a heatwave and had a room at the top of the house. Even so the fact that there were two modern tower fans in the room made our stay comfortable. The bedroom was immaculately clean and well supplied with soap, shampoo, body lotion and the extra plus of make up removing serviettes. There was plenty of tea, coffee and drinking chocolate. Plus absolutely delicious homemade biscuits. The breakfast had a very varied menu and ample assortment of cereals etc. An extra plus was the fact that even the cherries in the fresh fruit salad had been stoned. The breakfast was served on tables covered with pristine white tablecloths and matching serviettes. The homemade marmalade and jams were served in glass pots instead of the usual plastic individual portions - again, the extra mile. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. This guesthouse deserves five stars.
Location was excellent for train station and town centre. Owners were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. Lovely little touches in the room e.g. homemade buscuits, body lotion and shower gel. Really enjoyed our stay.
Ticks all the boxes!
Very welcoming. some great days out thanks to places they suggested we visit. Would recommend, and go back.
The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The proprietors were also lovely and I will be staying again.
I have never met such friendly and helpful people as the family running Emsley Guest House. They made sure I was settled, told me all the best places to see and eat at, took an interest in me personally but without being nosey or pushy. The room was superbly comfortable and exceptionally clean! The location is brilliant, just outside of the town centre so easy and quick to walk into town but still quieter in the evenings. And I extremely recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast... Gorgeous! I shall definitely be returning...
My stay wasn't long enough :-(
We've stayed in many places in our time and this is the best. Outstanding attention to detail without being overbearing. Position is brilliant, the hosts are very warm and friendly. Local produce used to make the home-made jam - outstanding breakfast (just how do they do those scrambled eggs?). Excellent local inside information. Very clean and safe. We'll come back next time in Stratford!.
Cosy guest house with a very friendly family
Owners welcoming and friendly Food spectacular Room clean and sizeable
Size of bathroom
The homemade breakfast was extraordinary, so was Ray and Melanie. Very comfortable stay for a few days.
My friend and I stayed in the Norfolk twin room which is on the 3rd floor. The beds were comfortable, the facilities were spotless, the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful and there was plenty of storage for our clothes. The handmade shortbread cookies placed each day in our room were the best shortbread cookies I have ever tasted. This guest house is less than a 5 minute walk from the train station and just a short walk to the stores, the river and The Royal Shakespeare Theatre. I highly recommend The Emsley Guest House. The hosts, Ray, Melanie and Hayley were warm, welcoming and helpful with anything we needed.
Nothing. This is one of the very best guest houses we stayed at while in England.
Excellent location to use as a base for visiting key Stratford attractions within 10-15 minutes walking distance. Parking arrangements and breakfast were satisfactory. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Ensuite facilities were very compact and not user friendly for tall / larger people. We suffered from power outages in both bedrooms and ensuites.
The lovely breakfast dining room helpful tips and hospitality of the owners
Most friendly and helpful. There is a convenient parking arrangement. The choice at breakfast is excellent, and the home-made biscuits in the bedroom are fabulous!.
The owners were very friendly and helpful providing us with all the information we needed. Delicious home baked biscuits in our room. Great breakfast. Parking close by. Easy walk to centre.
The hosts at the Emsley were outstanding. They prepared delicious breakfasts and the room was spotless. They were very helpful with information on what to do and see and where to eat.
Good location in Stratford to walk to the Shakespeare sites and town center. Very friendly and helpful owners. Good breakfast. A typical B&B, comfortable room and beds. Free WiFi.
Parking is several hundred yards away in a Pay & Display public car park. As a guest, you get to park for free. Not too far of a walk, but not really "on site" parking.
The owner's are extremely helpful and friendly! Fresh made biscuit cookies daily! The house is a 5 minute walk to town center so very conveniently located. Parking is also available. There is a reasonably priced laundry (self or wash/dry/fold) right around the corner. Very well managed and maintained property. Would definitely stay again!!
The family owned business made you feel right at home and like apart of the family.
nothing. should have stayed much longer...
We enjoyed our stay at Emsley immensely. A very warm greeting and thorough run down on everything we needed to know upon arrival. Great breakfast using quality produce was excellent, home made mamalade was to die for. We would recommend Emsley to anyone visiting Stratford upon Avon. Thanks Ray & Melanie.
Convenient free parking. Very polite, friendly, helpful staff. Short walk to town centre. Good breakfast.
The location was very good for both the station and the theatre. The breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit and toast and home-made jam. The room was lovely, despite the steep stairs, and the bed very comfortable. Hosts very hospitable and friendly.
V easy to get to town, clean, good breakfast, friendly.
