“Only went for dinner - but was immensely impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

Went for an early dinner after a trip to the theatre and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is to die for! It was so delectable and so much was on offer. Of course it is quite expensive but you certainly get what you pay for with amazing food and wonderful service. Will defiantely be visiting again. Was most impressed!

The building is from the 15th century but fully renovated to accommodate all modern conveniences. Bathrooms are gorgeous. Bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The restaurant is also fantastic and has an original piece of the wall with an original wall painting. Certainly worth the stay and the visit.

As someone who lives in Stratford I am very much spoilt for choice for good places to eat. The Theatre is excellent amongst others, but for an all round experience the The White Swan is top. My girlfriend and I often come here for drinks and while it isn't the cheapest in town you certainly get what you pay for. The beer is excellent and I've always found the staff to be helpful and friendly. The French chap, who I believe is the manager runs a great place and the bar area is very clean and full of character. The real stand out is the food! Stratford is saturated with decent places to eat and here really stands out. I've eaten here a few times, lunch and dinner. It has always been excellent. The Sunday lunch, normally hard to do very well, was fantastic. As I've said it's not cheap but I do feel its excellent value for the quality. Whether it be drinks or dinner I would recommend this place fully!

Stayed a couple of nights on a very well-priced deal.
Refurbished rooms - touch small but really well equipped and a great bathroom.
The real sell is the pub - all wood panels and beams and atmosphere and well served drinks - and the restaurant. We just went simple with steak but perfect.
Breakfast in the same place is fresh cooked and excellent with a well-stocked self-serve counter of fruit, pastries and - well, everything.
Staff attentive and friendly throughout the hotel.

Parking could be better and you may as well pay for the adjacent car park versus their recommended place 7 mins walk away for a pound cheaper.
I'll be back....

Perfect location great looking got a bargain at £55 for a night on agoda. Room was good size. The parking is a let down as would be better to be warned theres none with the hotel. Breakfast was a real issue for me 45minutes for toast and an hour for brekki and no pastries replaced during service. Staff friendly, good for one night stop xx

Stayed for short weekend with my husband and had the best time ever. The hotel is beautiful and the bedrooms are amazing. Only downer was the views but what can you expect in a busy town? The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble, in particular many thanks to Lee for going out of his way to help with my dietary requirements. Will be returning and recommending to friends and family.

This is a really beautiful hotel right in the centre of Stratford upon Avon. It has been renovated tastefully so that the bars and dining rooms are cosy and welcoming and the rooms and bathrooms are modern. All the staff are helpful and pleasant. There was water and fresh milk in the rooms and the bathroom was lovely and big and all extremely clean. Lovely atmosphere as soon as you walk into the the reception aarea.

Room Tip: We had a bargain room (303) which was a tad small and draughty because the double glazing wasn't...
