“AN ENJOYABLE SHORT BREAK”
Reviewed 24 June 2010

The Swan's Nest Hotel was recommended by a friend who lives in Stratford and often eats at The Brasserie. The Pub also has an excellent selection of real ale's.
The rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. Food and service is excellent and the staff are helpful and very pleasant.
To tour the Cotswolds and take in all that Stratford has to offer, you will not find a better location.
The Hotel combines old style charm with most modern facilities.

This was our second visit to Swan's Nest & it lived up to our previous experiences. I would recommend you stay in the 'old' (ie main) part of the hotel if you want a room with space & charactor. We were in what was classed as an Executive Suite & we were very pleased with it. We had a bedroom & a seperate small sitting room. Overall, a lot of space & a lot of windows to the front of the hotel. With the double glazing & air conditioning, we were very peaceful & comfortable at night. Even when the windows were open, it was still quiet at night (apart from the honking geese etc on the river early morning but that is part of the charm of Stratford).
The staff seemed to have all changed since our first visit last October but were all very helpful & really, nothing is too much trouble for them. I found them very attentive to our needs & did all they could to provide us with an enjoyable stay.
Once again, we really enjoyed the breakfast, the full English sets you up for the day & is delicious & freshly cooked. Service at breakfast is very good too. The older lady who served us our breakfast etc also acted as an unofficial tourist guide, giving us very helpful advice. Really what more could you want? Thank you Swan's for another enjoyable stay.

Room was tiny (twin), Heating was on for three of the four day visit despite repeated requests for it to be turned off. Wardrobe door fell off as soon as opened it. Repeated requests to staff to repair it fell on deaf ears. Staff uniforms at breakfast dirty and seemed to have been worn over numerous days. Staff were generally unconcerned about guests wellbeing. Public areas were very shoddy and in need of a good clean. Very poor value for money and would not reccomend.

The Bear Bar in the hotel has friendly staff who keep a whole range of beers and lagers. I especially liked "Butty Bach".
The franchised restaurant offers really tasty food at value prices. The early evening deals are great value for money and a "Gala" 3 course meal was efficiently served for 70 peolpe. No one had any complaints

Have just returned from a week end away and had to sit down straight away and add these comments. Our second visit to Stratford and just wish we had stayed here last time. We saw the hotel on our tour of Stratford and decided we must try it. What a really lovely hotel.Really close to the river and the town and such friendly staff.My wife works in a Hotel in Chester so knows just what the public expect and was really impressed.We would both highly recommend it and will definately be coming back.
