Excellent service and very clean hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable too. Cannot fault the whole experience. The pub has a wonderful warm atmosphere. I would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return at some point when next in Stratford.

Dear mcasti422169

Thank you for your review.

I am delighted you had a good experience with us recently, and that you found the breakfast to be amazing.

This is something we are now used to hearing - so many positive comments about it - we prefer to spoil guests with choice and table service rather than the usual buffet.

We hope to be of service again in the future.

Regards,
Sol

Lovely looking hotel with plenty of charm, ideal for a weekend away. Great breakfast in the mornings, plenty of choice with cooked breakfast and continental. We didn’t eat there in the evening as we wanted to sample the restaurants in the town . The bedroom was lovely and our room was well stocked the next day . Clean and charming hotel through and Through , easily one of the best we could see in the town . My one gripe unfortunately was the staff were not so attentive on our second morning. Food was great but we had to remind them about our toast and the coffee took a while to be topped up. This hotel is right in the town ideal to walk everywhere including the beautiful river.

Dear Angiebill9,

Thank you for your review.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found breakfast to be great.

We are indeed in a great location, so close to most of the attractions here in the town.

Our rooms are very well thought out, and each one is different - next time you stay you will notice the décor is different.

I hope we can welcome you again soon.

Regards,
Sol

From a lovely warm welcome on arrival at reception to entering a lovely Grand character room where there were chocolates left by the hotel for my husbands special birthday, to a very filling yet wonderful breakfast. everything was perfect. (Breakfast was a reasonable time between 8am till 11am). The hotel reflected Shakespeare's personality with its charm, literature and lovely staff. We would definitely stay here again! :)

Great location. We stayed in a character room which was a wee bit different. Beautiful bathroom, nice comfy bed, robes and slippers. All you could really want for an overnight stay. Cosy bar, nice food at both dinner and breakfast

Dear janettefirth,

Thank you for your review.

We are blessed with our location which as you now know is close to most of the tourist attractions here in Stratford.

Our character rooms are something very special indeed - each of our 41 bedrooms is different, so you will never get tired of staying with us.

I am delighted you enjoyed both dinner and breakfast, and look forward to being of service in the future.

Regards,
Sol

As locals we love the White Swan all year round, but we love the warmth and coziness of the hotel especially when the winter comes around.

I know winters not quite here yet but as our winter drinking place we went there Sunday night, the large settees just inside the front door are very inviting... whether it be a large glass of red or a long cold beer the White Swan is just amazing.

The staff were friendly, the Fullers Ales are always top class. It may be slightly more expensive than some of the normal pubs but it’s worth every penny.

To future visitors of Stratford who have not yet been to the White Swan, whether it be for drinks or food or both, you will not be disappointed.

The White Swan a fabulous place to go... roll on winter so we take take up residence on those big comfy settees.

Dear Samfireman,

Thank you for your review.

What can I say?

Thank you for being so kind about what we do here - we all work really hard to provide that warmth and coziness you describe.

I look forward to seeing you on the settees very soon!

Sol
