My boyfriend and I decided to stay at a local hotel in the area as we were celebrating our anniversary and going to watch a play at the RSC. Cons: After we shed out in excess £130 for one night we expected better. We had to pay an additional £5 parking which wasn't included in the price. We wanted to... More

A good size hotel, the decor is very dated. The bathrooms are very modern but let down by the dated decor. Very quiet, had a good night sleep. Didnt hear a noise. No mayjor bad or good points! But i wouldnt rate it a 4* more like 3*.

We were charged £140 room only for the night. I think this was pricey for the standard of room offered. The air conditioning did not work well, decor and also the bathroom was "tired" and the shower pressure was weak. They also allow guests to bring dogs, and in our room there was definitely a strong smell of dog. So... More

I had a great two night stay - nice location, comfortable room, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, etc all made my business trip a real pleasure. I intended to return for future visits. But a house keeper's eagerness to clear my room while I was at breakfast before I had checked out resulted in my iPad and phone charger being put... More

Disaster from the moment we checked in, we booked an Executive Double room, the brochure stated drench shower, air conditioning, safe, none of these were in the room. We were given a refurbished executive suite, this also did not have a drench shower, the windows had been painted over so could not be opened, paint also on the net blinds,... More

Great location but that is the only thing this hotel has going for it. Receptionist was not at all welcoming almost couldn't be bothered. The room we were offered was very noisy and had a really musty smell. When I asked if it was the only room available I was told yes but when I pushed her because of the... More

I have 2 requirements when I request a room: cold and quiet. 1st Time: My room was next door to the coach bay also the hotel advertises it has air-conditioned rooms. It does BUT the air con switches off automatically at 3am and does not turn itself back on. If you are temperature sensitive (as I am) you will find... More

Excellent location - a very comfortable walk into Stratford. Car parking good. All a little downhill from there. Not the most welcoming receptionist - in fact bordering on rude. Meeting room like the rest of the hotel rather tired and in need of some TLC. Food was poor to mediocre. Granted we were a party of 20 plus, however we... More

We were staying close by in Shipton Road and decided after a day of shopping to return and enjoy some peace sitting on the patio front overlooking the Avon, we managed to get seated with the help of a very good waitress and our needs attended to very quickly. We love the Swan Hotel very friendly and nothing too much... More
