We stayed here for one night and will definitely stay here again when in Stratford. Our room (105) was quite small but well equipped with a lovely bathroom and good quality towels and bed linen. The pub/ bar downstairs was cosy yet spacious and tastefully furnished. Breakfast choices were plentiful, nicely cooked and service was very attentive....lots of friendly, helpful staff available throughout.

Stayed for 2 nights. Excellent location close to the centre and the Shakespeare properties that we explored. We stayed in a grand room with a fantastic shower and very large roll top bath. The room itself was big enough for us. The fridge was a nice addition as the wife and I had brought along some beverages. The food was very good although we felt slightly disappointed that Saturday and Sunday evenings menu, which was included in our deal, we're the same, but as said the food and service were first class. Breakfast was good with a variety of choice. All the staff were extremely helpful and we would highly recommend this hotel, and we will be returning in the future. The bar was priced reasonably, and only slightly more expensive than a nearby waterfront bar, and is very quaint.

Room Tip: Highly recommend a grand room as after a full day walking around the beautiful area it was nice to e...

Very charming old hotel dating from medeltiden.Rum with varying class, ours was large with a large bathroom with a large bahtub. The restaurant was very cozy and the food good. A friendly pub. Friendly staff. Central location and close to the pedestrian zone. Can be recommended.

Room Tip: A little hard to find with steelit navigation

We stayed here with another couple last Sunday. First thing was upon arrival there is a very well received private car park, which, given this hotels excellent central location is a very useful advantage. We were seen to efficiently and given our rooms each one named rather than numbered (Titania and Macbeth as it happened). I was struck with the newness of the rooms fresh paintwork and solid doors, well fitted modern bathroom but also balanced with those important historic features, indeed we had a huge oak beam arching through our bedroom separating it from the bathroom beyond. The room was quite in the evening and we enjoyed a very comfortable nights sleep.
Although I cannot rave about our breakfast experience it was clear to see that the set up of breakfast is excellent with plenty of room and dining choice, regrettably we we dined and the very end of service and this showed both in the food and lack of waiters but in general nothing that anyone needs to worry about in my opinion.
We enjoyed drinks in the lounge prior to venturing out into town and also for last drinks at the end of the night - perfect.
Will we stay again - without doubt.

Room Tip: This is a very old building so the floors are uneven at best so anyone with walking difficulties sho...

We stopped by the White Swan for a drink at the outdoor pub patio and unexpectedly discovered that it was also a hotel, and a great one at that. Nice rooms, comfortable beds, and huge bathrooms. Our bathroom had an antique style tub with a large walk in shower with rain head shower. The staff were super nice and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for 5 nights and found it a very comfortable and convenient base. The bedrooms were comfortable (would have liked some drawer storage). Good shower and separate bath.
We loved the bar and restaurant area, which was old and characterful, and found the young staff cheerful and helpful. It was easy to walk to the theatre and great to have a choice of places to eat in the evening.

We decided to stay in Stratford at the last minute as it is such an amazing town and we did not want to leave! We chose the Swan as it was £100 B&B which seemed reasonable. The receptionist was polite and helpful and the room was comfortable. We had a wonderful evening but unfortunately, the breakfast was very disappointing. The food was edible but the staff need some better management - we waited about 20minutes for a cup of tea as the women we asked was obviously above getting the tea so delegated to someone who was already occupied. A male member of staff was loudly bossing a female member of staff around, which was very uncomfortable to listen to. If you sort the breakfast staff, we will be back!
