  • "A lovely property - a home from home."

    The property was clean and comfortable, we really enjoyed staying here. It has a lovely little garden and it's full of character. The property had everything you could need. The owners left a lovely little welcome gift of wine, cookies & chocolates. They even made sure there was milk in the fridge. The house is centrally located and a very short walk into the town centre. The only negative we could find was the power of the shower, but it wasn't really a major issue, just a bit tricky if your washing long hair. :-) We would recommend the property and we would stay again

  • "Fabulous house with everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    Very well equipped kitchen. Fantastic position for access to Stratford town centre. Bathroom could do with a revamp & a shower cubicle & bath sheets for everyone (as we had some bath towels that really aren’t big enough) but these 2 small things wouldn’t stop us staying there again. Highly recommend.

  • "The location is excellent."

    The downstairs living space is good - comfortable sofas and chair, good dinning room table and chairs, large kitchen. The dishwasher is half size. In the middle bedroom, the springs in the bed sag dreadfully so that your feet are higher than your head and it is uncomfortable. The beds in the twin room are very uncomfortable. The toilets are so small, they are difficult to get out of and there are no sinks to wash your hands in them.

  • "We had an enjoyable stay, the only suggestion would be to replace the bed in the double room as the springs on the base have gone."

    Thank you for your feedback. We take the comfort and well being of our customers seriously. The choice of mattress can be subjective but as a result of your comments a new bed and mattress are on order and will be installed as soon as we have a delivery date. The owner of No.5 Property Owner

  • "The cottage was fine."

    A few things could be improved. A few small tables would help for drinks etc. As we sat in lounge there was no other place than the centre coffee table which cannot be reached unless you get up and down. Bathroom could do with a blind as though you cannot see from outside in, in evenings, you would definitely see silhouettes etc which stopped our party having baths after long walks. The garden is great but the constant pump noise of the pond is definitely more than the trickle it should be and stopped us staying in for long periods. Finally we came by train and used buses etc and could have done with a shopper trolley as the shops are a way away. Little details... otherwise good beds, very very clean too...

    Thank you for your comments. Our primary concern is for the comfort and well being of our guests. The blind for the bathroom is on the list to be done, but as bookings to date have been consecutive we have not wanted to disturb existing guests. The only sound from the pond is the gentle trickle of water which most people find relaxing. The pump is submerged and totally silent. Whatever background noise you have heard is nothing to do with No 5. I am not aware of any holiday let or hotel supplying shopping trolleys for their guests. Kind regards the owners. Property Owner

  • "This house was perfect for us."

    Excellent situation - all areas of historic Stratford within easy walking distance. The house itself is charming - a lovely mix of period features/furniture and modern. Very comfortable and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the garden and the fish! Also a lovely gesture of the owners to leave us chocolates and wine on arrival. One tiny thing - may we suggest a blind for the bathroom for those who are less exhibitionist than us....

  • "This is definitely not a four key/star property."

    The photos show that is is not very modern but not to the full extent. It is extremely outdated. The two toilets are extremely small - the one upstairs is absolutely tiny and does not even have a wash basin. There was no corkscrew which is an essential in a holiday cottage! The plus side is the location which is excellent for walking into the centre of town.

    Thank you for providing us with your feedback. With reference to your comments about your stay at No 5, the property dates to the early 20th C and as such the toilet on the first floor is on the small side and hence no wash hand basin could be fitted. The bathroom with wash hand basin is almost next door. We provide wine and chocolates as part of a welcome pack and a combined bottle opener with corkscrew recessed in the handle is supplied with utensils in the Kitchen, easy to overlook. You will see from the photographs on the website that the property is beautifully appointed with a range of modern and period furniture and as such is a true representation of expectation. Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. Best wishes, The Owners of 5 Albany Road. Property Owner

  • "We found 5 Albany Road to be a most comfortable home from home."

    Ideally located; a mere five minutes walk to the centre of town, and with a delightfully quaint rear garden. The additional sun room was a particularly pleasant feature with patio doors leading outside to garden furniture, lawn and pond. There were washing facilities and a washing line which, I imagine, might be useful to some as well as an iron and ironing board. The kitchen is large and bright and the dining room has a generous sized table with dining chairs which have been replaced with more modern ones since the photographs were originally taken. We found having two WC's very "convenient" indeed (one upstairs and one downstairs) and there was a plethora of towels and toiletries for our use. The owners left a lovely card and gift which offered a warm welcome. We parked without issue right outside the front door, making use of on-street parking with the house's free parking permit. All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a delightful holiday home. We certainly hope to stay here again on our regular trips to Stratford Upon Avon.

    It was ideally located less than a 5 minute walk in to the town. It was perfect for a relaxing break for me and my family and I would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. Was a lovely touch from the owners leaving us a welcome post card with a bottle of wine and some chocolates. Thank you

  • "Albany Road is the perfect place to stay in Stratford Upon Avon."

    The house was spotless and very comfortable with the added bonus of the secluded, tranquil and sunny back garden. It is situated minutes from all the major attractions of Stratford so we found that once parked we didn't need to use our car at all. One thing to be aware of is the stairs are steep which could be an issue for elderly and infirm humans and dogs. The house was the perfect home from home and we look forward to returning.

  • "Just like to tell you what a great week we had in Stratford upon Avon."

    Our cottage was in the perfect location. A five minute walk away from from the town centre. Plenty to see in the local area, including Warwick Castle, and the beautiful Boulton on the Water. Our cottage was well equipped, with just about everything you could need. There were just a couple of things that we may have benefited from. It had a washing machine, but not a tumble dryer. Not a problem in nice weather, as the rear garden is a real suntrap. But could be a problem if the property is available all year. Also there was no feedback book for the previous visitors to leave any recommendations for places or restaurants to visit. That would have been nice. Other than that, we would definitely recommend the property, as the location is just perfect. A 5 minute walk and you're in Stratford upon Avon. Local supermarkets are a short drive away, so no need to take the kitchen sink away with you.

  • "We loved this house!"

    It was comfortable and clean, the beds were comfortable and the garden was brilliant for our dog and small children as it was completely enclosed with high walls and gate. Its more spacious than it looks on pictures. They loved feeding the fish in the covered pond. The location was absolutely brilliant, a couple of minutes walk and you were in the middle of stratford. Its also well placed for quite a few national trust properties. Stratford itself is beautiful, we would live to visit again and would defintely book this house again. Thank you.

    Just to note that the directions should say at the end, the property is on the left, not the right! Would also recommend that some attention is paid to the windows that are hard to open.

    Thank you for your feedback. Modern double glazed windows can sometimes be confusing and we have not had previous reports of a fault. Our owner team is always on hand to assist and this is the quickest way to sort any problems that may arise. Property Owner

  • "This quirky house is ideally placed for a gentle walk into the centre of Stratford."

    The house was bigger than I'd expected, with a large lounge/dining room and kitchen. The kids were thrilled to be able to feed the fish in the covered pond. The owner was very quick to respond and helpful when needed. The kids would have appreciated a more up to date TV system in order to access Netflix or Internet, but we managed fine with free view in the end. I had no trouble parking outside the property using the supplied permit. I'd read conflicting reviews about the comfort of the beds, so hopefully this might help. I have fibromyalgia, so rely on having a comfortable bed to ensure my pain levels don't increase. I found the house a bit like the 3 bears home - the large double bed was quite firm and too hard for me, the smaller double bed was very soft and cushioning but a little too soft for me, but the two single beds were just right! I chose this property based on the reviews saying the beds were comfortable as the last time I stayed away I ended up not sleeping properly and in a lot of pain. That didn't happen this time. Altogether I would recommend this property.

    Thank you for your informative and well balanced review. Your note regarding Netflix has been taken on board and will be installed shortly. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at No. 5 and look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

    The spacious of 5 Albany Rd and location were excellent. However the attention to detail was not what I have come to expect. The toilet seat upstairs needs tightening. The handle end keeps coming off as well..The beds were not properly supportive nor were the sofas. But what was most annoying was the stained and filthy carpet that really needs replacing . This could be a 4 star property with those improvements. The potential is there. As I said overall location, furnishing and welcome pack all good. We did not have a dog and this would be a great house for one. On the other ha s the Tudor Rose incredible and your photos do not do it justice.This is what I have come to expect. I truly hope this helps you make improvements.

    Many thanks for your feedback. I am pleased to confirm that the toilet seat has been replaced. The little decorative knob on the end of the toilet handle has been secured. The beds are all brand new, and many people comment on their comfort but this is down to personal preference. The stained carpet you refer to, is a very small stain below a radiator from a historic leak, but we take on board your comments. Property Owner
