Was in Stafford on other business and came across Swan Hotel. The room was big, airy, beautiful decor and first class ensuite which was spotless. We went flown stairs for a drink and very busy but served fast. Had breakfast in morning and staff could not do enough for you. The food was excellent and piping hot.

Slightly difficult to find the entrance to the car park....but well worth the effort. A lovely hotel with nice room and excellent restaurant both for dinner and breakfast. Only problem was a/c unit directly over bed which meant it was a bit too noisy and intrusive to leave on overnight during heatwave. Only criticism was a loose headboard (room 301).... More

Room was ok once you got used to the sloping floor (olde worlde charm). Very modern interior and bit like the tardis - bigger than you would think. Car park very small... More

having only stayed 1 night bed and break fast i have yet to experience enough (dinner etc) to rate it as excellent. i would have liked to have stayed in the old part of the building but sometimes these things are a blessing in disguise... the new part was clean, tidy, very spacious - which was probably wasted on me...

Really pleased with the stay at the Swan. Great central location, comfy beds, clean rooms and plenty of space in the rooms. Excellent staff in all areas of the hotel and who were willing and eager to help where possible. Plus free WiFi as well. Points to watch - the car park isn't huge and as the restaurant is popular...

Stayed here for a 3 night break in Stafford. Loads of positives about this hotel. Friendly staff, nice room, the fluffiest hotel towels ever and the food in the brasserie was good. Location was excellent. Unfortunately we had room 111, on the first floor. The noise from the downstairs brasserie and bar was horrendous. We ate in the brasserie, the... More
