Very comfortable, hospitality quite excellent and made to feel very welcome. Only negative comment is that the temperature of the hot water in the bathroom certainly could be improved. Other than that - a very pleasant stay and my thanks.

We stayed here for a night and were so pleased we did. It was such a beautiful hotel dating from 1450. The bar and restaurants areas were bursting with beams and wood panelling. Also old paintings on the walls added interest to the restaurant. Our dining experience was much enjoyed although it was a very busy evening with private parties... More

We were on a UK road trip for a few days. This one night stay was chosen to break up our journey back to the north west from Cornwall. I am an avid reader of reviews so thought I knew what to expect, however this one night stay was even better than I expected. Firstly all of the staff in... More

Next time I'll look for a place to stay with friendly staff, no information was made available about what to do in the area, no information given about the hotel which was the feature and reason for going. A general lack of interest that they had guests, no body seemed happy and we felt unwelcome. Had to find our own... More

Loved this place and will definitely go back! We stayed at the hotel and ate at the restaurant numerous times. Our room was comfortable and well kitted out with extras in the mini fridge. It was quiet despite overlooking the tiny parking lot. The bathroom was lovely with a rainforest shower. There are absolutely fabulous rooms available directly above the... More

A very cold , very expensive room. Room was pretty though. The other luxury double room was very small, with one window opening onto noisy ventilation pipes and the other ( not opening) into hotel reception !

Excellent service from all the staff. Comfortable bedroom and lounge areas. Historical hotel in a very good location for tourists and theatre trips. Car parking not easy but that is no different than many old towns. The hotel directions are very helpful

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel offers luxury accommodation in Stratford-upon-Avon, while crucially maintaining the charm, character and period features of the original building.The White Swan dates back to 1450, making it one of the oldest pubs in Stratford – and the front of the hotel is a cosy, traditional pub, continuing to serve outstanding cask ales and the best pub food in town.Our 41 four star guestrooms, marry traditional, original features with modern conveniences like iPod docks, flatscreen TVs and ensuite bathrooms.One thing not to miss on your visit to this historic Straford-upon-Avon pub is the antique wall painting in one of our front rooms. Commissioned by William Perrott, who owned the building in 1560, the special painting depicts the story of Tobias and the Angel - a subject doubly appropriate for a tavern of that time. ... more   less
