My satnav had a little problem finding the parking lot but some friendly locals helped. Staff is friendly, wifi is free of charge and works well, there...

The Swan has been a regular haunt for many years when in need of a quick cuppa in Stafford. The coffee shop has a variety of seating areas which all have a slightly different appeal. Good choice of cakes and light lunches with friendly staff. See you all soon x

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in January. Being allocated a single room is never great but the room was ok if a little dated. The restaurant is good value for money and Breakfast is very good with proper local food on offer.

Great reception and service provided by friendly professional staff. Food was really good and the room was very clean, spacious with a comfortable bed. I would definitely stay again. As only one night did not sample the local area.

We had a lovely stay. The night porter service meant we could stay out at our function as late as needed. Room was comfortable with all expected conveniences. The food was absolutely fantastic. I recommend the chicken and duck terrine! We opted to have breakfast included, and the breakfast selection was admirable. Not just cooked breakfasts but a selection of...

Thank you for your recent review and my sincere apologies for the quality of the food you received in our bar area. I have spoken to Chef regarding this matter. I am unsure why the fire was not lit or the heating on, the heating is on a timer system but I will investigate this further. I have passed your...
