The Mercure Shakespeare Hotel

The Mercure Shakespeare Hotel is one of the closest hotels to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, at only a 3 minute walk, and is thus a great pre-theatre dinner option. It is also within suitable walking distance of the Bancroft Gardens and River Avon, providing easy access to some of Stratford upon Avon’s main attractions.

Not only what is near the hotel impressive on the eye, but the hotel itself is as equally superb. Original stone floors and an ancient Tudor facade in the hotel’s reception suggest a lavish lifestyle that even pre-dates Shakespeare. It is well-known that throughout time the Mercure Shakespeare has hosted many politicians, diplomats, entrepreneurs and scholars alike. It’s not hard to see why, when subtle touches such as open fires during the winter and a traditional AA Rosette restaurant menu create a warm feeling of content in a prestigious and dignified setting.

The hotel features 78 individually named 4-star guest rooms, including twin, double and junior suites with either a four-poster or king-size bed. All of these rooms are available with free WiFi.

During the day, guests can sit, eat, and relax in the Othello’s Bar Brasserie, as there are menus to cater to all appetites, at any time. The garden terrace is also a great feature, allowing guests to enjoy light afternoon snacks and summer evening cocktails. Morning and afternoon tea and coffee can also be taken in the Lounge, while the most suitable place for pre- and after-dinner drinks is The Quill Bar.

For those special occasions, a selection of private suites is available for 20-100 guests, ideal for board meetings, wedding breakfasts, evening receptions and civil ceremonies.

Relax and dine in style amidst the divine ambience of this historic town.
