“Holiday”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We spent five days here and enjoyed every minute. The room was large and comfortable with a lovely bathroom which had recently been updated. The service was friendly and having a charming pub as part of the hotel just added to the pleasure. Everything in town is within minutes and easy to walk to. It was a delight and I cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Apparently not all the rooms have bureaus for storage of clothes. If you need a place, you should as...

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay - we travelled to Stratford by train and it is only 5 minutes' walk from the station, plus there are bus stops and a taxi rank outside. It is in a great location for all the sightseeing; near the shops, plenty of restaurants (can recommend
El Greco next door) and the River. Our double room was spacious, with a great sized bathroom, safe and mini fridge (complete with fresh milk, a nice touch). The breakfast was lovely, with plenty of choice and served in the characterful bar area - we did not try the evening menu, but it looked great too. We also had several leisurely drinks here as we enjoy Fuller's ales, and the pub has a friendly feel, with locals as well as tourists. The staff were very friendly and helpful and efficient. Overall I would recommend the White Swan for a great stay in lovely Stratford; especially for couples.

The hotel is in a fantastic location surrounded by shops,pubs and various eateries. There are lots of William Shakespeare attractions nearby and the River Avon is only a 5 minute walk away. The staff at the Hotel were all very helpful, very courteous and made our 3 night stay very pleasant. The food in the restaurant was very tasty and well presented and the chef was happy to do a vegetarian meal for me which was not on the menu. The breakfast was fabulous, with good choices available . They even sent a cooked breakfast to our room for my husband when he was unable to get down to the restaurant. My husband enjoyed a beer at night while I sampled the cocktails. Our first room was tiny and not suitable for more than one night but we were able to upgrade to a Character room, for a supplement, which had a large bed, a double shower and freestanding bathtub in the bathroom,a couch to sit on to watch TV and upgraded tea/ coffee facilities. All areas of the hotel, rooms and restaurant were very clean and tidy. We really enjoyed our stay and would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: You need to book a superior / character room to ensure more space and comfort. We stayed in room 10...

Stayed for a weeks holiday. Lovely room (twelfth night) and excellent, friendly service throughout our stay. Food both fir breakfast and dinner (eaten once during the week) was very nice; prepared and presented well and tasted just as good.

Definitely a keeper!

Usually we would stay at another hotel in Stratford but couldn't get in so booked the white swan. The attention to detail is superb someone has spent a lot of time and money here to get this right. Our room was a superior double and was great. Gorgeous bathroom.a real boutique feel in a hotel steeped in history. Food was excellent. Really top notch. The staff particularly the waiting staff were very warm and welcoming. Thankyou Andreas,
Mr Barcelona and Mr Naples!
This is the place for the customer who want and expcect something stylish, contemporary with some character.
Will definitely be going again.

I had been to the White Swan with my Mum in April and had a bit of a roller coaster experience with service. I emailed the manager and his response was great. We therefore stayed again for two days this time with my husband. I can only say that the experience was brilliant. All staff were friendly but I must mention Tony this is the 2nd time I have come across him and his service skills are outstanding. Friendly, attentive nothing is too much trouble and he is the sort of person that would put a smile on anyone's face. He seems to just be passionate about giving good service. We had the same experience with Andrew really helpful attentive and funny. The room was out of this world I don't very often take photos of rooms but made an exception this time. Things can sometimes go wrong and they did the 1st time I visited with my Mum. The effort that the White Swan made to put things right was outstanding. Sorry Mum that you could not experience that. Thanks to all of the White Swan Team I would definitely want to return and would urge you Strafford Upon Avon visitors to do the same.

Room Tip: The character rooms are amazing, but all of the rooms have great character and the bathrooms are bri...
