Guest Reviews


    • “A tasteful and comfortable apartment which was very close to amenities and was very clean, well equipped and furnished. Had very helpful owners.”

    Dr Stewart, Edinburgh, June 2015

    • “A really lovely place to stay, didn't want to cone home.”

    Mrs Hornby, Jarrow, April 2015

    • “The owners are lovely and very helpful. The position of the property is superb and having parking was invaluable. The flat itself is spacious and clean and well presented and the facilities are good with digital TV and wifi, I loved having a coffee maker. The position of the flat is what makes it brilliant, it is so central for walking around Stratford but also great for getting out of town quickly in the car. There is so much to do.”

    Mr Stedman, London, April 2015

    • “In a prime position for shops, buses and most importantly the RSC Theatre. We hardly needed to use the car - which made our stay more relaxing. The owners made us very welcome and were extremely thoughtful in the everyday essentials which they provided for us. Thank you for a wonderful stay.”

    Mr Chalmers, Lymm, January 2015

    • “Fully deserves its 4 star rating, very spacious with good quality fittings. The location is excellent for the town centre and only 400 metres from the theatre. Parking and car access was very good. In a very quiet location beside the canal. The owners live just across the landing and were very helpful.”

    Mr Scade, Mauchline, October 2014
