The Swan is certainly the best hotel in Stafford centre but I'm afraid it wasn't great (our friend stayed at the Vine which was very tired and shabby around the edges). Our room was fine but for the price we paid I would have expected the decor and bathroom to be of a higher standard (it was spacious though). The... More

Hotel has parking lot at back of the hotel. If you go by car ask for adress from parking otherwise your GPS can't reach the hotel. The hotel has nice rooms and is situated very well in the centre of Stafford

A lovely old hotel, we were lucky to have a window table so could watch all the activity in the main shopping street. The staff very attentive and once ordered the food arrived without a long delay. It looked good, very tasty, the presentation excellent. There are lots of different eating areas in the hotel, formal, informal, all offering interesting... More

Booked the Swan for Sunday Lunch. No F1GP so plenty of time to get out and enjoy Sunday. Fantastic service attentive without being overpowering and stunning food. The Duck hash was amazing full of cooked duck ,spicy chorizo and topped with a soft poached egg I would return just for that dish alone. Traditional roast main courses followed by pudding... More

Nice smiley staff is always a good sign I think. Lovely surroundings and quick and efficient service. A quality bacon sandwich and a nice breakfast menu. Lovely coffee is always a winner with me so all in all a very successful start to the day.

A trip down memory lane for myself and my wife. The hotel was helpful in rearranging our room. It had been previously booked as a Twin room through Hotels.com. However, simply by changing the booking from three to two nights, the room had been changed to a superior double room costing more and with just the double bed. Something to... More
