We had 3 nights booked at the Falcon Legacy Hotel in early September. It was beautiful weather when we arrived so we quickly clambered aboard a long boat and cruised down the river Avon. It was wonderful with all the swans coming close by and an interesting commentary and music as well. Some very historic Shakespeare related scenes were viewed too. Absolutely beautiful. Later we visited two of the historic houses. Though expensive they were thoughtfully set out with guides to give information. It seemed quite a sophisticated life for the well to do I thought. Stratford upon Avon itself was a pleasant town and I always remember going into Huffkins for a Shakespeare bake for lunch. My husband enjoyed an authentic pot of gold fashioned tea. ?Russian caravan. The Legacy Falcon hotel was very comfortable and had a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff at breakfast. Which was partly buffet style. The hotel did special themed evening meals but we chose to eat out. The Giggling Squid was a wonderful Thai restaurant. The other memorable meal was the fish and chip restaurant overlooking the river Avon parkland. Cream teas were available down the street from our hotel, it was a really lovely holiday atmosphere. A good view can be enjoyed from the top of the Theatre By The Lake restaurant. I just wish we had been healthier and able to enjoy it better. I would love to go back there one day when we are in full health. A visit to Anne Hathaways Cottage will be on the cards if we are lucky enough to return. Perhaps in the spring when the gardens are blossoming, if we are lucky.

    The room was spacious, and toiletries were provided in the adjoining en suite, which had a bath and a shower in. Towels were white and fluffy, and the bed was a king size bed. The only down side was the fact the room was overlooking the street and there was some noise in the early hours by youngsters fighting after a few too many drinks.
    Breakfast was relaxed and you helped yourelf to as much as you wanted, cereals, fruit and breads , yoghurts and cheeses, croissants too. The cooked breakfast was made to order and served later if required. My husband didn`t complain about his cooked breakfast, it tasted good and was plentiful. Because we were ill its hard to recall details of this holiday, I would like to go again. But without the timeshare talk. I joined a holiday club, Sponsored Breaks, paid £228 for 6 short breaks and the catch was that you have to attend a talk by hardened salespeople wanting you to pay thousands into a discount scheme! We were driven off to this talk to Henley in Arden, and put through an awful time, I wanted to leave after an hour, and like all the others in the room being grilled, we were manipulated into staying several hours. The salesman drove us back to the Falcon Legacy in silence almost, as we hadnt wanted to buy into this scheme. Never again. The hotel was good though and Sponsored Breaks gave me two more short breaks to take as compensation.

    Please can you tell me what your room was like and what was provided in the way of facilities/toiletries. I always judge a hotel on the qulaity of the towels - what were they like?

    What was the breakfast choice like? Did you have a cooked breakfast and was it cooked to order or kept hot on a service bar?
