Went for a family occasion a couple of months ago. Very impressed with wide choice of menu - we had the mixed sharing starters which we all enjoyed followed by rib eye steaks & fish mains. Lovely atmosphere and staff all very helpful so a very enjoyable visit - would recommend.

The entrance to the Swan Hotel will take you into a corridor of small bars and a bustling restaurant Having drank and eaten there while on a mini break, I can honestly say that if you're visiting the town of Stafford then this place is not to be missed. You will never get bored of walking through the many rooms... More

First visit to this recently refurbished restaurant in the Swan Hotel. Parking was slightly confusing as the P&D machine in the car park was faulty and I had to return to our car to put a sign in the window after checking in at the restaurant. Restaurant was quiet when we arrived but soon became quite busy. Sunday Lunch -... More

On many levels this is a very nice hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. We stayed on a Friday evening which proved to be the only fly in the ointment. There is a large bar downstairs the music from which was very loud and invasive until midnight and completely sunk any... More

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

Stayed one night as part of a wedding party. Had read the reviews regarding noise and if you are on the front - yes it's very, very noisy. 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

My wife and I stopped here one night on the way to the golf Open. Had a bit of a problem finding the car park. AAroute put you to the front door on a pedestrian precinct, but helpful locals guided us. We .had a large old room overlooking Castlegate, but had no trouble with noise, the double glazing working.

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...
