Love this place! Helpful staff and amazing meal!!! 2nd time there and won't be the last. Highly recommended the guinea fowl and cheese board. Very well placed close to all the tourist attractions. Beautiful setting.

Great venue, clean and tidy. Good room facilities and pleasant staff. Parking charges, but that's not the hotels fault. The food was great, the menu a little limited though, so check this out on line if you intend eating here. We would stay again.

Chose this hotel for a trip to RSC theatre (excellent Tempest). We knew the hotel would have lots of character based on its history but were pleasantly surprised the rooms and amenities had been nicely been brought up to date. Service was welcoming and efficient.

I visited Stratford to go to the theatre. When I got back to the hotel afterwards, there were chocolates on my pillow, a bottle of water and a glass had been put next to my bed, the shower mat had been laid out on the bathroom floor and the room service menu left on the bed for me to peruse....

Very comfortable, hospitality quite excellent and made to feel very welcome. Only negative comment is that the temperature of the hot water in the bathroom certainly could be improved. Other than that - a very pleasant stay and my thanks.

We stayed here for a night and were so pleased we did. It was such a beautiful hotel dating from 1450. The bar and restaurants areas were bursting with beams and wood panelling. Also old paintings on the walls added interest to the restaurant. Our dining experience was much enjoyed although it was a very busy evening with private parties... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel offers luxury accommodation in Stratford-upon-Avon, while crucially maintaining the charm, character and period features of the original building.The White Swan dates back to 1450, making it one of the oldest pubs in Stratford – and the front of the hotel is a cosy, traditional pub, continuing to serve outstanding cask ales and the best pub food in town.Our 41 four star guestrooms, marry traditional, original features with modern conveniences like iPod docks, flatscreen TVs and ensuite bathrooms.One thing not to miss on your visit to this historic Straford-upon-Avon pub is the antique wall painting in one of our front rooms. Commissioned by William Perrott, who owned the building in 1560, the special painting depicts the story of Tobias and the Angel - a subject doubly appropriate for a tavern of that time. ... more   less
