Certificate of Excellence
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.

Excellent surroundings. Staff are very helpful and professional. Very 'oldy worldy', full of character. The lunch was fabulous. We just had the sandwiches which was bursting with fillings and they come with chips and coleslaw. Will definitely be visiting again.

Dear rebeccat15, Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you chose to come and stay with us for your anniversary. I love that room! I was thrilled to read that you found it to be beautiful as well, and that you found a good place to hold the wine! Our breakfast is fast becoming something of legend - we get so many positive comments about the wide choice of both hot and cold options which are included with each room, and hot items cooked fresh to order. I will look into the comment regarding bubble bath......good idea. I hope we can welcome you back in the future. Regards, Sol

Hello Helen118, Thank you for your question. This is not correct and I am sorry that the 3rd party site seems to be misleading you. You can have 3 people in a Grand twin room with sofa bed. There would be an extra charge of £30 for the additional person. If you wish to book, give us a call for availability and we can sort for you.

Do you have parking on site
Hi, Sadly we do not have our own car park, but there are 2 pay and display car parks within 250 yards - from £10 for 24 hours in the multi storey and from £14 for the surface level car park directly behind the hotel.

Hello. I am so sorry to respond AFTER your stay. There was some sort of system error, meaning we only received the e mail notification today. We have two disabled spaces at the hotel (Which I hope you were able to use) Kind Regards, Sol
