Reviewed 31 July 2014

We quickly agreed that we will be returning to the Swan Motel for our annual visit to Stratford. The room was very clean and well maintained, but equally important, it was quiet. As gardeners, the well groomed property was especially inviting to us. Next year we'll take advantage of the pool.

The Swan Motel is a short drive from downtown Stratford, and so perfect that many patrons have come annually for decades. The rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable, with free wifi.
The owners are friendly and have lots of advice about what to see and do in the area and even in Toronto. The gardens are beautiful with small private groupings of lawn furniture.

This motel was a delight to stay at. We stayed for two nights while attending the Stratford Festival. The motel was very clean, the beds were extremely comfortable, and it was such a restful place. There is a sparkling clean pool, and the beautiful grounds are so well kept that it was a little oasis for us. The owners are very genial and helpful, helping us to pick a place to dine at, and supplying us with extra towels etc. to go swimming. Such a wonderful difference after the place we stayed at last year! We will definitely be returning! The only thing, and it's a small thing, I would suggest to anyone going to stay there to bring their own soap and shampoo. Otherwise, perfection! :)

Room Tip: Bring your own soap and shampoo. There is some available, but it isn't very nice.

Very nice motel. Clean and quiet as mentioned. Easy ride into town and play venues. One of the best values in our whole vacation.
Most everyone was there for either the Stratford plays or the culinary fest. Enjoyed meeting people in the garden.

This is the second year in a row that my husband and I stayed at the Swan while attending the Stratford Theatre Festival, and it certainly won't be our last. Colleen was a joy to speak with; we had long conversations on the mornings we went in to the office and had the delicious muffins, coffee and tea that are provided every day.

The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and provide nice surroundings for the pool. The overall area around the motel is very peaceful, which is great for a good night's sleep. It is actually very nice that the Swan is a little bit outside of town--about five minutes by car--as this adds to the feeling of being on vacation.

The room was very clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The fridge and coffee/tea maker were much appreciated and utilized. I must commend the cleaning staff on a job well done.

Overall, I would say this has become one of our favorite places to stay. The Swan, combined with the outstanding Theatre Festival, has made Stratford a destination we hope to revisit for years to come!

Our stay at the Swan Motel encouraged us to write this review. We easily found this accommodation at the quiet end of a main street leading into Stratford. The room and bathroom were clean, the bed was comfortable, and the front desk service was welcoming. We really appreciated the prompt return in good order of some items which we left behind. The Swan Motel was perfect for our wants and exceeded our expectations.
