"A great apartment and yes it does have a cottage feel to it. M.y husband loves Bancroft for the view and brightness of the apartment, even though it is very small. I love minerva for the comfort and space. In fact Minerva is very similar to our own home so we felt settled in as soon as we arrived." C&FG Immingham Sept 2017

"Felt spoilt for the whole stay - what  beautiful, generous fittings and furnishings. Wonderfully luxurious and cosy as well as thoughtful - great directions to get in and I love the "boot tray" which was definitely needed after muddy wanderings in the Welcombe Hills. Just like Bancroft Place it felt like home. Never seen a "Smart TV" to catch up on Downton Abbey on the ITV Player...bliss! Thank you"  ES. London.  Nov.2015

"Thanks again Carolann and David, an excellent apartment of a high standard just like Bancroft. Enjoyed our 2 weeks stay, the weather could have been better, but made the most of the dry days and sometimes missed the rain here when we were away for the day." R&AW, Scotland, Aug/Sept. 2015

"Arrived Friday evening, what a wonderful surprise. The apartment exceeds our expectations. So spacious, modern and the cherry on the top a private car park! We love Stratford, we most certainly will be coming back again and again. Carolann and David many thanks for starting our long weekend with a bang 20/10 We will be back. P&JK, Lincs., Feb 2015

"Returning to Stratford for the umpteenth time, we have been frequent visitors to David and Carolann's OTHER PLACE. We have SWANNED about here in this lovely space and enjoyed a week of ROYAL SHAKESPEAREAN magic. A COURTYARD for the car is a lovely bonus, ours hasn't moved all week as we relaxed in the town and the flat. Tried the breadmaker for the first time - am not a talented baker!! We enjoyed, we hope others are as happy here as us. R&SC, Barnet, Jan 2015

"We were delighted to be the first guests at Minerva- what a wonderful apartment. It was everything and more than we expected, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped-it's a home from home. the location is excellent for all the town's amenities, yet it is in a quiet, peaceful location. the secure parking is an added bonus. The owners, Carolann and David have gone that extra mile to ensure Minerva is the perfect place for the discerning couple to stay. We will recommend Minerva to our friends, and will, I'm sure be back! Thank you."    J&JM, Lincs., Dec 2014
