Historical Traveller Reviews of Legacy Falcon Hotel
Very disappointedfrom KimGordelier
Great findfrom DipsWales
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 locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not too badfrom widgey77
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.

Falcon Hotel - return tripfrom Robertininghilterra
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
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.

Great Hotel!from Concorde2003
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.
