Fodor's Expert Review Victoria Spa Lodge

Bishopton La., Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 9QY, England

This good-value B&B lies 1½ miles outside town and backs on to the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal; the grand building dates from 1837. Queen Victoria once stayed here before taking the throne—look for her coat of arms, which can be seen in the gables and in some of the fireplaces in the bedrooms. Guests are welcome to relax in the drawing room (where there is a fire in winter), play board games, or have a game of pool. The B&B is next door to the Stratford Parkway train station and the Park and Ride, which has a bus service into town.

PROS

  • beautiful building
  • full of character
  • welcoming drawing room

CONS

  • away from the town center
  • too old-fashioned for some
