I very kindly received a voucher for MacDonald Hotels of the value of £100. My husband and I looked at the hotels that were on offer and chose to stay in... More

Our room (supposedly executive double) was bland/tired and suffered from a considerable amount of traffic noise being close to the passing main road. The bathroom was dated with a very leaky tap on... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Swans Nest, it is perfectly located for the RSC & the town centre. Our room was comfortable & quiet, the staff were friendly & the breakfast very good. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Stratford
