great food, lovely comfortable room, good location, helpful friendly staff.
We stayed at the swan saturday 2nd december and had an evening meal at the resturant.
The swan hotel web site has a diferent sat nav post code which directs you straight to the car park at the rear of the hotel (st16 2aj). This is useful as the hotel is on the main shopping street in the centre of stafford and parking elsewhere is a pain. when you check in you get a card from reception to display on your car windscreen and park free.
We booked this trip through a late bookings website and got a good deal on the room.
The rooms are clean with a comfortable bed, satalite tv, iron, hairdryer, tea, coffee bottled water and biscuits. The bath is a decent size and the shower good.
We stayed in room 101 which is above the bar and as it gets busy on a saturday night and previous reviewers have comented about noise levels being high i was concerned. The swan website even warns about noise levels. As it turned out i could not hear a thing at night and it was a saturday night and the bar was packed - i dont know what these people are complaining about. As for the church bells in the morning i liked it - it adds a bit of character to the place.
The resturant at the swan is excellent and the staff are very efficient. We had a meal there and went to the bar next to the resturant in the swan later on and stayed there all night and had a great night. The bar is really good - loads of real ales to choose from which is good and unusual for a town centre bar and no queues as there was plenty of bar staff .
One last thing if you come to Stafford to do some shopping i would advise go elsewhere. The main street where the swan is is ok but the rest of the place is pound shops and charity shops.
i will be going back to the swan again.
hope this review is useful
