Historical Traveller Reviews of Legacy Falcon Hotel

Very disappointed

from KimGordelier
We booked a room for my daughters birthday. Having been through lots of sites on theinternet the Falcons red double room was the one she wanted to stay in. That was the one we thought we had booked. On arrival there was no record of my daughter for that night even though all paper confirmation had been received and I had even phoned before to check. She was booked in for the following night. She was then put in a family room which was dirty and had hairs in the bath. As you can imagine she was very disappointed and it totally ruined her birthday. So beware. Stratford upon Avon is a lovely place and she thoroughly enjoyed the Butterfly farm, bear museum and haunted house tour.

Great find

from DipsWales
A great little find which served as a perfect base for enjoying all the offerings of stratford upon avon. Situated right in the centre of the town amongst lots of shops and right opposite the Royal Shakespeare theatres and canals.

We stayed on the dinner, bed and breakfast option and were not disappointed. Food was plentiful and tasty with lots of choice.

Rooms were clean, large and suitable for our two night stay.

I would not hesitate recommending the hotel for a good value break for enjoying stratford.

simple and needs updating, great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have been to a good many hotels but this was my first visit to stratford. The location could not have been better. My husband and i went for the bank holiday easter weekend and having tried to book into numerous hotels at the right price, eventually managed to book into the falcon for a one night stay in a double room for £50.00. The room was in the new section of the hotel (i say new it looked like a 1970s built block of rundown flats from the outside view off the carpark. However the room was spacious if not in need of some attention and modernisation. The bathrooms like many other comments have stated is a mess. Cracked tiles, old shabby mirrors, etc. When i saw it i immediatly said that i would not even attempt to have a shower, but after a few hours walking around town i gave in if only to freshen up and found that it was not as bad as i expected. Staff are lovely and the breakfast is fantastic. Go to Moons restaurant for evening meal and you will not be dissappointed. It is on the same street as the falcon and the food, service and ambiance made this break away really special for us. Overall for £50 what do you expect it is a good place to stay if you want to explore stratford and are only going for the night, just dont expect too much. Go to the White Swan on Rother Street for a drink this is where we initially wanted to stay and it looks really quint and warming.

Not too bad

from widgey77
Just returned from a weekend in Stratford. We decided to stay at the Falcon as the price (£50 per double per night) was very reasonable. After reading the other reviews I was prepared for the 'run down' bathroom and was therefore not surprised when low and behold the bathroom in our room was exactly that.

We had requested a room in the old part of the house, this was a twin bedded room overlooking the main street and the church - very noisy so take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper (or have a few tipples before bed time!)The room itself was pleasant enough, the beds were quite comfy and there was tea/coffee making facilities, tv, hairdryer and telephone. We had asked for a non-smoking room but appears we were in fact given a smoking room. To be honest I could not smell any tabacco in the room but it was quite strong in the bathroom. By the way, if you want a shower best to ask for this as we only had a bath (with the enamel peeling off!).

We were on a room only basis so did not try the breakfast at the hotel - we instead had a bite to eat at the Cafe Rouge in nearby Sheep Street.

I would stay here again as the hotel is very centrally located - so the perfect base for those on a budget. Word of warning though - the bar prices are very expensive for wine and spirits.

Parking can also be a bit of a problem - best to arrive as early as possible if visiting at the weekend.

If the owners of the hotel ever read these reviews then I would just like to say: please nip down to B&Q and get some cheap white bathroom suites and tiles - this would make a big difference to the rooms for next to nothing.

lovely charming hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Falcon is one of the best hotels I have every stayed in, with a real charm of its own, the parking facilities are excellent as well (always a bonus), the bar with the open fire is beautiful and the food and service were very good.It made our weekend away really special.

lovely staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was working at the Falcon Hotel two years ago and I can tell the customers that the kitchen is always really clean. I was a waitress and I was said very often what pleasant the people were to the staff. My hotel is a nice place to visit. Stradford is a beautiful town and England is a very good experience to live. I think some of my friends are still working there, If you go there say hello to them ( nikki as recepcionist is a friendly girl, gancho is a chef and he cooks very good, nora, his wife is a good housekeeping...in the other hand ,maggi, lynn etc are working there long life.
happy christmas to all of them...from SPAIN

Falcon Hotel - return trip

from Robertininghilterra
We stayed at the Falcon Hotel for just one night but we have been before and would go there again. I am not sure of the room rate as we attended a function in the hotel and the cost covered an evening meal and entertainment too. We paid Pounds 82 per person.

We have been before in the modern part but that is like any other mordern hotel. We like the old part at the front and yet recognise it is a lottery which room you get unless you ask. My brother for example was in room 305 (much smaller than our room and no hot water or shower).

If you want the charm ask for room 307. The door opens, you turn a corner into a sitting room with TV and two sofas and turn to the right again to find a four poster bed. Charming and romantic. The bathroom at the far end past the bed needs updating as do all the bathrooms in this hotel but shut your mind to that and enjoy your stay in this lovely place. We had hot water too.

The breakfast is a good as you will find and the staff efficient. They moved my mother from one of the older rooms to the new part without fuss as she couldn't manage the stairs.

Just remember ask for room 307

quaint room, horrid bathroom!

from SwirlyWhirly
Ok so it's 3 stars so you shouldn't expect too much, but is a modern bathroom too much to ask??

We stayed in room 219 which is in the old section and overlooking the New Place, so the view and the quaintness of the room was as you would expect.. fantastic!

The stairs leading to the room are really steep and rickety, so not good if you have problems walking. After climbing the steep steps you enter a very musty smelling corridor (I noticed that none of the skylights opened, why??? This would make a huge difference to the air quality there!).

When we opened our room we were happy with it as it was exactly as we expected, sloping bumpy ceiling and floor, lots of timber and antique style furnishings. Although the carpet was old and ropey it was clean and tidy, so it got our thumbs up.

However on inspection of our bathroom we were very disapointed with it. Several of the 1970's tiles had fallen of and there was a big limescale mark down the bath by the taps. The only good thing about it was that there was loads of hot water. We did mention about moving, but as the only available rooms were in the new section we decided to stay put.

We had a good nights sleep dispite the chiming clock opposite and a few drunks outside at 5am!

We woke up totally refreshed in the morning and went down to breakfast. The staff there were very attentive and kept asking if we needed anything and whether we were ok. You could have as much as you wanted of whatever you wanted. My partner had the full works, cereal, then fried followed by toast and then fruit!!!! None of the staff batted any eyelid at what he ate and it filled him up until about 4pm which was a bonus!

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in a centrally located hotel with period rooms and good service, however anyone wanting modern facilities and rooms would be in for a big disappointment.

All I can say to the hotel is modernise your bathrooms and you'll probably gain your 4th star.

Charmingly Inviting

from A TripAdvisor Member
Sitting by the fireplace in this cozy hotel is only part of my memorable visit to The Falcon Hotel. The courtesy staff were more then accommodating which made my visit to Stratford one that leaves me anticipating my return. The convenient location and afforablility makes this fine old establishment worth recommending to family and friends.

Great Hotel!

from Concorde2003
I stayed at the Falcon back on a school reunion in my home town in June 2005 and was very pleased with the hotel (when I was at school I never thought I would stay in one of the town’s hotels!).

It has ample parking at the back (very unusual for a town centre hotel) and I had a great big room with two armchairs, a settee and loads of drawer/wardrobe space. This was in the newer part at the back overlooking the garden area.

The bathroom was a bit clinical (white tiles) but was well supplied and the shower was great.

Having read some earlier posts I would suggest asking for a room in the newer part rather than the wattle-and-daub ‘traditional’ part where you are going to get character but probably also less space and convenience.

The full English breakfast in the restaurant was excellent, with a large choice of items and very good attentive service. I am a big fan of a good breakfast and this one passed the test well.

For anyone out of area, the Falcon is superbly located in the town centre, a stone’s throw from Harvard House where the founder of Harvard University lived, directly opposite the site of New Place, Shakespeare’s last home, and close to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. All around are classy restaurants and nice pubs and no, I don’t work for the Stratford Tourist Board, I am just very proud of the town I grew up in!

Hope you enjoy it too.
