Went to the theatre at the end of the season and found this great little motel. A very comfortable room, exceptionally clean and although decor was a little dated had no complaints. Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

My mother and I recently stayed at this motel for two nights during the Stratford Festival. It is one of the cleanest motels I've ever stayed in, and I found the bed very comfortable. It's a 5-minute drive to the town centre, so although it would be a long walk to the plays, it makes for a very quiet setting.... More

I have been traveling to Stratford for years, and the Swan is by far my favorite place to stay. The rooms are immaculate, the owners are lovely and charming, and the price is very reasonable. The only problem is you have to book early in the season to get a room!

Easily, this is the nicest motel I've ever stayed in! Sure, the bathroom fixtures are from the 60s, but everything worked and the room was spotlessly clean. The decor was on par with very high end luxury hotels and the staff were fast, friendly and very helpful. We will, without a doubt, stay there again next time we're in the... More

We recently chose to stay at this motel based on Trip Adviser reviews. We were not disappointed! This modest motel is exceptionally clean and very close to downtown without having to hear all the noise.

Colleen & Peter run a lovely motel at the edge of Stratford. We have been going there for 15 years and keep coming back because of the clean, comfortable rooms, relaxing atmosphere and well kept gardens and grounds. Priced reasonably and easy access to local attractions, it is well worth staying at The Swan.

Having very recently stayed overnight at this property, we are pleased to report that our accommodation, including the bathroom, was exceptionally clean. Our only complaint would concern the noisy air conditioner, which was not conducive to enjoying the best sleep possible.

Have recently returned from a wonderful experience staying at the Swan Motel. Our room was spotless, the grounds are fantastic and our hosts were so helpful. We were in Stratford to attend a wedding and with our hosts help, we were able to hold a nice family gathering in the beautiful gardens. From the moment we checked in to the... More

We stayed here for two nights and had an excellent stay. The owners are lovely and make you feel comfortable and welcome upon check-in. There is plenty of parking available and the gardens and grounds were gorgeous. The pool was clean and there were lots of chairs spread around the yard. You can tell the owners really take the time... More

we had yet another wonderful weekend at The Swan Motel in Stratford Ontario Canada, it is comfortable, relaxing and just far enough outside of Stratford to be quiet and serene. The people who own the motel are very friendly and accomodating. The price is right and we will be reserving this coming week for next summer during their music fest... More
