“Second Visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We went to the White Swan on Friday after a not too good previous visit, they gave us a very lovely upgrade which we very much appreciated and I can see that efforts have been made in service etc. We choose not to eat in the restaurant on this occasion, but had the breakfast which again was sadly disappointing. The toast was very badly burnt but still served to us, and it is little attention to details that continue to let this beautifully located place down. I certainly would have no issues visiting again, but think the management need to keep making the changes to ensure that a highly priced accommodation does live up expected standards.

Lovely hotel with character, charm, beautiful rooms and outstanding food. Surely on the way to earning a Michelin star.

Will definitely return. Parking a bit of a pain, and I was a bit twitchy about leaving car in their car park around the corner, but there wasn't a problem.

We have stayed at various hotels in Stratford on Avon but this was our first stay at The White Swan. The decor and touches are all to the highest standard and our room was full of character. The food was excellent and the staff could not do enough - they made our visit a real pleasure. Am looking forward to visiting again

Stayed in May just one night for our honeymoon. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough. They made our stay very special and the staff in the hotel could not do enough for us, even upgrading us to their amazing 'twelfth night' room as a special treat for our honeymoon. The rooms furnishings are of a high quality and the bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was big and had a really amazing shower.
The hotel is in walking distance to all of Stratford's sights. The town is beautiful and I would highly recommend a walk down the river! We also ate in the hotel and found the three course set menu options delicious and really good value. All in all this is a really special hotel and one of the best we have ever stayed in. A big thankyou to all the staff at the white swan who made our stay and honeymoon extra special.

Room Tip: Book the twelfth night room for an extra special experience!

A one night stay was all we needed so we opted for one of the character rooms with period furnishings and all the quirks that accompany them! Was a fantastic room with a four poster bed and a large soaking tub. We loved it !

Room Tip: If you don't mind spending a little extra go for the Macbeth room.
