In such a beautiful building we had a beautiful room with every little thing thought of but unfortunately poor customer service with inattentive staff ruined the experience. Would not recommend this hotel if you expect good manners & service.

The White Swan of course is a very beautiful and very old inn. I didn't expect the service or the team to match the wonderful building but they did. I loved each and every person that we met. So highly recommended!

Excellent location, good food, service good though a touch slow on Sunday breakfast. Minor niggles with the room but you always get that in hotels. Did think that they might have provided dressing gowns!

Stayed for one night. Room was ok but restaurant meal and breakfast service was very slow. Confusion over what menu was applicable (no festive menu even though it was December). Food quality was average.

Excellent hotel. The room was lovely. The bathroom was wonderful and definitely worth the money. Breakfast was terrible. The continentinal breakfast had been decimate staff were rushed and rude. When breakfast finally came it was very salty, the eggs were over cooked and muffins were cold and hard. We gave up on breakfast and went elsewhere.

Great venue, clean and tidy. Good room facilities and pleasant staff. Parking charges, but that's not the hotels fault. The food was great, the menu a little limited though, so check this out on line if you intend eating here. We would stay again.

Traditional hotel in beautiful Stratford with lovely furnishings. Staff are so friendly and welcoming, would definitely stay again and recommend to another. Restaurant was particularly nice and thoroughly recommend the breakfast included in your stay.

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
