A friendly hotel in an excellent position for the RSC and other attractions in Stratford. Good value at only £5 parking for the duration of your stay, and no pressure to vacate the car park after checking out. Good food and lively atmosphere in The Bear.

I booked up with a feeling of happy anticipation as the old entrance looks great and the bar "The Bear" adjoining the hotel is amazing. Sadly this lasted only until my key card opened the room on the ground floor, it was musty and had an odour of damp, the long corridors had a feel of a 70's motel. The...

Stayed at the hotel during our UK trip for one night stop at Stratford-upon-Avon. What I love the most about the hotel is that it is located just comfortably near the town center. Getting around the town, especially the Shakespeare center, is done easily by foot. No need to use public transports. The hotel itself looked ordinary from outside. But...

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel was ideally situated for the sights in the town and if we had been staying more than 1 night we would have availed ourselves of the swimming pool in the sister hotel across the road. It was no trouble to the restaurant staff when we wanted to move tables and when...

This hotel is quite old and shows its age. The rooms are small. It strikes me as the kind of place that has a philosophy of "get 'em in and get 'em out". It was clean and reasonably comfortable. The best thing about it was that it was within easy walking distance of the main part of town. Breakfast, which...

Like all hotels in Stratford the Swans Nest charges for parking, but unlike those that charge the day this hotel charges for the duration of the stay. We paid £5 for four nights. The first good point was that we could have fresh milk in the room and had a fridge to keep it in. The second point was that...

Perfect for a long weekend away, had all the amenities that you would need. Was beautifully and festively decorated inside, with a huge Christmas tree by reception. The staff on reception were helpful and gave us a free map. The location was spot on, a short walk across the bridge and you were in town.
