AccommodationHotelMercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare

The Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel is a very centrally located hotel in a historic building dating back to the 14th century. It is in the same block as Shakespeare’s New Place and the Bard would certainly have been familiar with the building.

The hotel is comprised of four buildings including a 14th-century timber-framed townhouse that is typical of buildings from the Tudor era and it is one of the oldest buildings in Stratford-upon-Avon. It first used Shakespeare as part of its name in the 18th century, making it the first business that is known to have used Shakespeare’s name for commercial purposes.

The Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare has 78 guest rooms, which all have comfortable beds, a small work desk, a flatscreen television, ironing facilities, tea and coffee making facilities and en suite bathrooms. The hotel’s Privilege rooms are larger than the standard rooms and include extra features such as a Nespresso coffee machine and minibar with complimentary soft drinks.

Rooms have a traditional decor, which suits the historic building although some people may find it a little dated. Classic double and twin rooms are 28m² (301 sq ft) and Privilege rooms are 32m² (344 sq ft).

Free Wi-Fi wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel.

The hotel’s location is brilliant. It is at the southern end of the town centre and only a one-minute walk from Shakespeare’s New Place, the Guild Chapel and Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and most other points of interest in the town centre, including Shakespeare’s Birthplace, are no more than a five-minute walk away.

The hotel has its own car park, which costs £15 per night.
