The Emsley is a lovely Bed and Breakfast conveniently located near the train station. I stayed with a friend for one night in October and had a very good experience. Delicious breakfast, clean and cozy room (Norfolk), friendly managers and quiet area. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for the lovely review, it is much appreciated.

Really nice hosts (thank you for all the great tips what to do and see in Stratford!), cosy atmosphere, very comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, clean and nice room (even though it would have been good to know that there is a dog in the house for an allergic person like me). Still all in all we enjoyed our stay at...

Thank you for doing a review, it is much appreciated and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the dog, we do not mention it because it is not normally an issue. The dog lives in the back of the house and is not permitted anywhere where guests may be. Sometimes guests ask to meet the dog and she...

We are so pleased with our stay at Emsley Guest House back in August. The room we booked was large enough to comfortably accommodate our family of four with plenty of space to spare. After being on the road for a number of days, I was thrilled to be able to relax in the tub in a private bathroom. Our...

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to do a review, it is really appreciated. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay - and the bath tub! So many Guest Houses rip out baths in preference for showers but we find a lot of guests really appreciate having the choice. Thanks again for staying with us. Best wishes,...

We stayed here for two nights in late November during our driving trip around the UK. Ray was very welcoming and gave us plenty of fantastic information about the area. The accommodation was very comfortable and breakfast was great. The location is great for walking around the town and while parking isn't directly on-site, it's essentially over the road and...

It's run by a husband and wife with their daughter (and dog, a beautiful golden Lab called Summer who is kept in the back, but can be brought out to say hi to dog lovers). It's got a great home feel. In addition, the food and accommodation are excellent - as is the price. It was the cheapest rate in...

Hi Cole, Thank you very much for the lovely and comprehensive review.
