  • "Had a lovely time, great location and facilities."

    The only thing stopping a full 10 out of 10 I'm being really picky is I didn't find the sofa closest to the TV very comfortable, so if that was the only niggle it can't be bad. Would go back

    Nicely set out and well equipped, lovely for the dog with a large grassed area and the riverbank nearby. Warm and cosy too.

    Had a fabulous week and the weather was amazing, loved every minute of our stay. The owners have obviously worked hard to make the lodge into a super holiday home and have definitely succeeded , in future if we visit Stratford upon Avon , this will be our only choice. Thank you for an amazing week. five * s all round.

    Hi, We are chuffed that you had a super time & really appreciate your kind words. Boosters Lodge has a great deal to offer, as you say. I even managed to watch a Kingfisher the day you left opposite the lodge. Many thanks, Paul & Rachael. Property Owner

    It could of been cleaner, bags in the bathroom bins, the sofa had seen better days and that rug needs to go. In the kitchen the washing machine door was missing. The towels and bedding could be a higher standard. We where unable to get Netflick, Internet was very hit and miss. The views where outstanding and it was lovely to walk to Stratford-upon-Avon.

    From here, you can quickly get to Warwick, the Cotswolds and the south of Birmingham. The lodge is well positioned, right on the river bank, with lovely, calm and peaceful views across the water and fields. It was a proper little home-from-home. Thank you, Paul.

    My absolute pleasure, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Boosters. Thanks for the super feedback. Kind regards, Paul & Rachael. Property Owner

  • "The lodge was lovely and the view over the river lovely."

    The steps were a bit hard going for us being disabled, so will not return on that basis but the owner was very friendly and helpful on our arrival as the weather was fowl and the check in a bit tricky for us. Hence the 4 stars as the check in is a bit of a struggle, plus although the Canadian Geese are lovely and keep the grass short, there needs to be a method of cleaning up the guano because walking and getting it on shoes and belongings isn't nice, especially for children and the elderly. The Riverside Venue was ok but a bit overpriced, but the location was excellent for the town, and the local village. So would recommend it overall. The balcony/terrace overlooking the river made the week.

    Paul, the owner was in the car park waiting when we arrived to show us about getting into the property, and popped in during our stay to check if all was okay. The beds were really comfortable, which is always a plus! The only thing I would mention is that we couldn't find any bath mats for the floors, so has to use a towel.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Boosters Lodge."

    The view of the river was picturesque as the boats,ferry, and paddle boarders past. The lodge was immaculate and well equipped. The heating system was easy to use which we turned off when we went out and at night. They supplied cleaning materials, toilet rolls, refuse sacks, coffee, tea and sugar although we did use our own coffee and tea. This site was nice and quiet and the Riverside restaurant was good. We could not use the ferry as my husband has a disability but a very useful means of getting into Stratford. It is also walkable. The steps to the lodge are quite steep and my husband just managed them and we knew there were steps when we booked. We would really recommend this lodge as it is well furnished, comfortable and good value for money.

    Despite us being an hour early the lodge was very clean, with anti bac wash in every room. The beds had good quality linen however, it was a hard mattress (suited me not hubby!) The lodge had everything you needed in the kitchen. We chose to cook every night and it was like using a home kitchen everything to hand. There are loads of things to do even on a wet day in March. I would recommend the 1940s tea room, the scones are to die for. Tip: if you want to go to The Royal Shakespeare Theatre book in advance so you wont be disappointed. We enjoyed our holiday. Booster's Lodge was wonderful and I can not praise it high enough!

    Thank you for your feedback. I am saddened by your comments. Beds are subjective and the mattresses in the property are high quality orthopaedic ones., not the usual standard fare found in lodges. An insect can fly in to a property at any time and die. I am sure you find this in your own home. People do leave food out to feed the swans, it certainly was not there after the housekeeper had been in . Property Owner

We took our own picnic chairs as there were 4 adults. As a previous reviewer said it’s not easy to find. There is a map of the site just after the entrance barrier. It only gives lodge numbers no names. Boosters Lodge in number 80. Drive straight down to the river, turn right and it’s the 7th lodge on the left.
