Reviewed 31 May 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The grounds are lovely. It is a great choice for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay while in Stratford.
It seems that many people at this motel are returning visitors and it is obvious to us why this is the case after choosing this place to stay. Downtown is only a few minutes away and. The coffee and muffins in the morning are a wonderful bonus.

Room Tip: All the rooms are easily accessible. It seems that many people return to this motel and it was obvi...

Just outside of town in Stratford, this motel is a little gem. Nicely appointed room has everything you need. We are in town for 2 shows. This place is great for convenience and, compared to the "fancier" places - it's good value. We'll come back.

Went to the theatre at the end of the season and found this great little motel. A very comfortable room, exceptionally clean and although decor was a little dated had no complaints.
Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

My mother and I recently stayed at this motel for two nights during the Stratford Festival. It is one of the cleanest motels I've ever stayed in, and I found the bed very comfortable. It's a 5-minute drive to the town centre, so although it would be a long walk to the plays, it makes for a very quiet setting. The morning muffins and coffee were a nice touch, although the coffee could be a bit stronger. I shopped around for accommodation, and this place was the most reasonable. I appreciated the previous comments on Trip Advisor to help plan our stay. We will definitely return next year.

I have been traveling to Stratford for years, and the Swan is by far my favorite place to stay. The rooms are immaculate, the owners are lovely and charming, and the price is very reasonable. The only problem is you have to book early in the season to get a room!

Easily, this is the nicest motel I've ever stayed in! Sure, the bathroom fixtures are from the 60s, but everything worked and the room was spotlessly clean. The decor was on par with very high end luxury hotels and the staff were fast, friendly and very helpful. We will, without a doubt, stay there again next time we're in the area and would recommend it to everyone!

We recently chose to stay at this motel based on Trip Adviser reviews. We were not disappointed! This modest motel is exceptionally clean and very close to downtown without having to hear all the noise.
