Fodor's Review

Built on land owned by the Shirley family since the 12th century, this Victorian Gothic mansion is a soothing retreat for theatergoers who don't want to cope with Stratford's crowds. Opt for the main house if you like four-poster beds and antiques, or the modern wing if you prefer contemporary elegance. The oak-paneled restaurant offers extremely good Modern British cuisine. For a break, take tea or a whisky in antiques-filled public rooms, play a game of tennis, or take

a bike ride through the 40-acre grounds, which contain the ruins of a 12th-century church. The hotel is 6 miles south of town.

Faulty Towers LIVES!

The exterior is an impressive old structure dating back over 300 years old. The grounds are exquisite. The interior has some interesting details, but it's extremely expensive for flea market furniture, worn fabrics, disinterested service and pretensious and not very good food (couldn't eat the dinner served). They would really like to be 5 star (they charge for it) but they're barely a 3 star B&B. Having just come from the Savoy in London at the

same price, this is a disppointment.
