A Beautiful hotel with a very comfortable feel. The reception, bar and dining areas are very well laid out and comfortable. The room was just right, with a very comfortable bed and a superb roll top bath.

The hotel is exquisite - beautiful premises, rooms, and restaurant. The staff was very warm. We left medicine in the hotel by mistake and the staff acted quickly and courteously to get it to our next stop. This was an A+ experience and I am usually a critic. Located at town center, convenient to all.

We were in Stratford upon Avon for Anthony and Cleopatra at the RSC and as always found the rooms to be clean and welcoming and the location perfect. We have stayed in various rooms at this hotel and they never disappoint. The shower is the best I've had in a long while at a hotel - and the breakfast delicious....

Stayed two nights. Easily the best hotel that we have visited in Stratford. Lovely building and ambience. Friendly, attentive, but unobtrusive service - the mark of a great hotel. Good breakfast - and real coffee in the room! Thank you.

A really nice hotel, centrally located, very clean and tidy, with great staff. Everything to do with Shakespeare is in walking distance for the hotel. However the room was quite small and I felt a bit claustrophobic.

Stayed in several hotels in Stratford and this was the best. One night. We had a sandwich lunch and the breakfast. Both excellent, especially the breakfast. Lovely room. We got an upgrade, so can't comment on the standard ones. Service, friendly and efficient. It looks quite recently updated or they keep it that way. The Fullers beer is a bonus.

This was our first visit to Stratford and we were very pleased that we chose the White Swan. Staff are charming, attentive and very professional. Our room was spacious and well equipped. The restaurant/bar area is warm and inviting and full of character. Breakfast was excellent. The restaurant menu was not extensive but the food was beautifully cooked and well...

Really enjoyed staying at the White Swan. Very pretty hotel full of character. Extremely nice helpful staff and very well cooked food. Room very well equipped- some bathrooms have shower only so check if you want a bath. Altogether this was a find . Thank you!

Excellent place to start your day of stepping back in time! The position makes most places of interest walkable, with Shakespears birthplace just a stones throw away. The breakfast is delicious and could easily keep you going all day. Stratford has a lot to offer and we particularly enjoyed a day at Warwick Castle.

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
