Everything about the experience was perfect: the room (with a great bathroom), the breakfast, and the host. Thanks, Elena!
Lovely little place. Elena was very helpful and the breakfast was lovely.
The walk to the RSC Theatre was only about 15 mins. Had a great stay!
The room we were in was not the room that was pictured or booked but a converted shed/ outdoor flat. The bed was nice but the bathroom was freezing throughout the stay- to the point that we didn't want to shower. Also it is far enough out of the city centre that we had difficulty finding cabs that could bring us back in for the theatre on a Monday night--- I had to phone 6 before someone agreed.
Positives--- it was dog friendly and very private- we only saw owners/other guests at breakfast and it was pretty low priced
Thank you for your review.
We are sorry to find out that the bathroom was freezing, the heater on the wall should have worked during your stay and in fact we've checked it before and after your stay and it does work, but if for an unknown reason it didnt work during your stay, we would expect to be told about the issue and we would have done whatever possible to solve it.
You could have walked back from the theatre - it is only 20-25 minutes walk but if it was too far for you and you were struggling to find a taxi because probably they were too busy, that's nothing to do with us, the accommodation.
You had the detached room as you were having the dog with you - in this way we facilitate you to leave your dog alone in the room for hours. It is not possible to leave your pet in one of the rooms in the main building.
Wishing you all the best
Penryn Guest House
Very welcoming. Lovely room. Easy to get to in a lovely setting. By far the best B&B in our two week stay in UK and Europe.
When we arrived we rang the doorbell, which states "ring bell and wait for a few minutes". After a long days drive to get here we were stood outside the door with all our bags for at least 15 minutes. In fact another guest came in to assist us. A simple note "back in 20 minutes" would ave sufficed. When we were finally let in, there was no apology, no conversation and no sense of compassion. Only "you can come in now". So not the best start ...
The room - It was okay. It has everything you need in it for a short stay. The bed was good, the bathroom okay and that's about it. The curtains do not block out the light from the street which is bright at night due to the street lights.
The BnB itself is located on a busy road leading into Stratford upon Avon. It can be noisy so bring earplugs!
Walking distance into the town takes around 20 minutes.
Breakfast was nice.
If you want a room to stay in for a night then this does the job. Though the price is high for what you get.
Thank you for your review. We were sorry you didnt have a good experience on arrival.
Few points to clarify; we were not away from the premises at all but we had problems with the bells (which unfortunately it happened but we've redressed the situation). The best practice would be for you to inform us with a day before of the estimated arrival time.
The room has a dark cream black out curtain rolled up behind the normal curtains for guests to use at their discretion, I am surprised you haven't seen it but it is there.
We are situated on the main road but we also have quieter room at the back, again I would advise to ask for a room at the back at the time of the booking if this possible.
All the best,
Penryn Guest House
An exceptionally clean, beautiful bnb. The room was nicely furnished with a wonderful shower and generous hospitality tray. The breakfast was varied, well cooked and certainly set up us for the day. We will not hesitate to stay there again when visiting stratford upon avon and will recommend to friends and family.
