We stayed here for two nights, celebrating a special birthday/anniversary. When we arrived there was a fresh and elaboratly trimmed piece of tiramisu cake welcoming us. A giant wall print of a swan having its way with Leida added another dramatic touch to a beautiful room full of new raw-oak furniture. The bathroom also appears brand new and I liked... More

Disappointing stay.Yes the building/rooms are lovely but that is all I can say on the positive side. Arrived at 11 to obtain a parking ticket (£11) for 24 hours which we were aware of and happy to pay, the Receptionist was very abrupt and welcomed me by telling me the importance of leaving on time and don't expect your room...

Stopped for a long weekend as a couple. Had a room on the third floor, great space, finished to a high standard, firm comfortable mattress, good sleep! Bath room was also finished to a high standard apart from a bit of dust on tile ledge and slightly dropped shelves, where heavy items have caused it droop, making items slip off,... More

This is a beautiful old hotel, with may period features. Oak beams, 15th century tapestries and a real sense of history about it. I stayed in a character room (Twelfth Night), which was in the older part of the hotel and it was a real treat. The beds are very comfortable and unlike some other reviewers, I found the pillows...

Arriving later than expected at The White Swan we gave our room, 111, a cursory glance before heading out for what turned out to be a delicious meal at the RSC Rooftop Restaurant and an incredible production of The Roaring Girl at The Swan Theatre. On returning to the room we realised that one of the windows overlooked Reception, giving... More

I don't usually review hotels but I'm writing this on the free wifi, sitting in bed on my second night in Room 205 at The White Swan and feel inspired to rave about it. This is a beautiful hotel, with real attention to detail, and a gorgeous pub and dining room downstairs. My classic room for just over £100 per... More

My wife and I stayed overnight for a wedding in Stratford. Given the hotel had been advised multiple bookings were taken for the wedding guests, we were surprised to be shown to the disabled toilets to change into tails, wedding gown etc, since the room was not ready. Admittedly, it was 1pm and check in was billed as 3pm, but... More

Stayed here for a couple of days in the summer, beautifully refurbished rooms which look of high quality. The corridors give the impression of an outdated hotel but the rooms are lovely and modern. The bathroom was slightly small and had no window but was good for a few days. Beautiful location, two minute walk to the canal and theatre... More

Not the cheapest show in town but in an excellent location. Nice sized room for a classic double with good hairdryer and ironing board supplied. The breakfast was excellent particularly the cooked elements - you really should try the Eggs Benedict Royal and Arnold Bennett Omelette. We also ate dinner in the hotel one evening and both of us had... More

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
