Rooms are always clean and comfortable and is nice and quiet. Best place to stay if you are going to the theatre only a few minutes drive, grandchildren enjoyed the outdoor pool. Fridge and coffee maker in room and great wifi reception

If you're of a certain age, you might remember road trips with your parents, staying in cute little motels with gorgeous grounds and a swimming pool for the kids. This is one of those places. Once these small family run motels dotted towns across the country, but have now been mostly replaced by the multi-story nondescript cookie cutter accommodations. We... More

We had 2 rooms...great beds, great bathrooms, hi speed wi fi , great parking, and then delicious muffins with coffee in the morning. This establishment is a hidden jewel. We will certainly return to enjoy all it offers from the gardens to the pool .

This was our second trip to The Swan Motel and it's as nice as before, clean and comfy rooms in a very well maintained roadside motel. We love staying here and the owners are the nicest folks, with recommendations for anything you might want to do in Stratford or the surrounding area. You're only about 5 minutes from downtown Stratford... More

Read about this motel on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Very clean, lovely grounds and a refreshing pool. It is in a quiet area, only a five minute drive from the main part of Stratford. Appreciated the coffee and muffins every morning. Will return!

My wife and I stayed the night and we were so impressed. The room was spotless. The bed was super comfy. We've paid a lot more and received a lot less in our travels. The location is also nice and quiet. It's a short drive or a nice walk to the heart of the theatre district. We'll definitely come back... More

We have been coming to stay at The Swan for many years now and we always feel like it is a home away from home. Colleen and Peter are the best hosts. They provide a serene oasis for relaxation just a few minutes drive from downtown Stratford. All you can hear in the evening and the morning are the many... More

We were three couples spending a weekend visiting the Stratford Festival for two plays, dinner and breakfast. The Swan was the perfect landing place for us to relax and enjoy th quiet and ambiance of a forest-like setting. Very pleasant with coffee and great muffins, especially the raisin bran, in the morning.

What a perfect weekend. Wanted to get out of the city and decided to take in a show. This was the perfect place to stay. It's secluded, relaxing and comfortable. Check In: We got there around 7pm. Our initial thought of the place was "ohh, this is......different".. but upon entering the main office, we were greeted warmly by one of... More

We are just back from our annual week to Stratford staying at this motel.The owners are wonderful hosts. It is always spotlessly clean . You can park in front of your room and open the windows at night if you wish. The in room fridge is very useful. We especially enjoy the gardens and the lovely pool in between theatre... More
