Then book into The Swan in Stratford. It is just a 5 minute drive from downtown, but it is located in a quiet rural setting. The owners are always there to welcome you and help on any way possible. They are great at giving directions! The motel is fairly small and simple, but has all of the necessary amenities.However, I...

We stayed here last night. Very clean motel. Not too far from downtown, about a 5 minute drive. Very comfortable beds and very quiet. I would like to stay here in the summer and enjoy the pool and beautiful grounds.

A lovely place, comfortable room, spotlessly clean, beautiful gardens. We picked up some wine, used our ice bucket as a wine cooler and sat out at a table and chairs in the gardens. It was relaxing. We tried the pool but it was ice cold. Only some guests from northern England braved the waters. The TV remote control is not...

We "found" the Swan Motel through previous visitors' reviews, and want to add our own very positive comments! We spent 3 days and 2 nights there, and will certainly return on our next trip to Stratford. Coleen and Peter were gracious, friendly, and helpful - and took obvious pride in their well-kept premises. The overall effect on arrival was that...

We spent two nights at this motel in September and found the accommodation to be excellent. Motels often get a bad rap but this one was quiet, spotlessly clean (wish I could get my tub at home to shine like the one in our room!) and the grounds are beautiful. It was only five minutes from downtown Stratford which made...

Four couples recently stayed in Stratford to attend the Festivals 42nd Street which was good but not excellent. The Swan Motel has very clean rooms, spacious and good parking. The grounds are well kept. The only downfall is with their continental breakfast composing of muffins and coffee/tea. A very small areas is available right beside the check out counter which...

Stayed here for 1 night. The beds are very comfortable, our room was spotless and the extra sink and mirror was a bonus for us. It was great to have a small fridge in the room. The grounds are very relaxing and peaceful and the pool area was very clean. They serve coffee and muffins in the morning at the...

This motel was immaculate, with nice grounds. Breakfast was coffee and muffins. This is a traditional motel, but maintenance was exemplary. My only two caveats were the price: $110 (plus Canada's high taxes) and the odd toilet that seemed about 3/4 size. There were two sinks, which is nice when sharing a room. There was a mini-fridge and a microwave....

This motel is unlike any I have stayed at. It is very clean, comfortable and only 5min from downtown (Avon Theatre). The service is very friendly. The entire motel and grounds are very well kept, with a clean pool, plenty of chairs and tables outdoors to sit and relax. The grounds are beautiful with lots of flowers, shrubs and trees...

The Swan Motel staff, especially Colleen, are welcoming, whether in person or via e-mail. The motel is just outside Stratford proper, south of Lorne Avenue, in the countryside - so plenty of peace and quiet. The outdoor swimming pool looks lovely, but weather was either raining, or too cool to use it. The room was a good size, including writing...

“This is a 1960s style single-level motel. Rooms furthest from the office are most quiet, but all are quiet due to the rural location.”
