Travellers' Choice
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.

Booked last minute for a 1 night stay to celebrate my wife's birthday. Was looking for a genuine old hotel, this one has been accepting guests for over 450 years! Booked a Grand Double room to guarantee a bath, slight error, if you want a room in the oldest part of the hotel, you need to book a character room, lesson learned for next visit. As stated the hotel does not have a car park, however the Windsor Street surface car park is directly behind the hotel. Friendly, welcoming staff, enjoyed a lovely dinner in the restaurant, which has showcased friezes hidden at the time of the reformation and a bible in old French. Will definitely return.

Dear Neil H, Thank you for your review. I am delighted you chose to come and stay with us for your wifes' birthday recently. Our hotel certainly has the age that you were looking for. As a returning guest you will be entitled to a discount when you book direct next time - give one of the team a call and they will be happy to advise you on which rooms have the bath you are looking for. The friendly, welcoming staff will be really happy you used those words, and the chef and his team will also be pleased to hear about the lovely meal you both enjoyed for your special night. We hope we can welcome you back in the future, and we'll provide the bubble bath! Regards, Sol

What a lovely hotel! Staff were so welcoming and couldn’t do enough for us . Rooms were very comfortable and well-appointed. Breakfast was wonderful with fresh fruit salad, cereals, croissants, as well as a choice of hot meals - we made the most of it and it kept us going for most of the day. Hotel was very central. We loved Stratford - great shopping!

Dear janbrad, Thank you for your review. I am thrilled that you found the hotel to be lovely and the staff welcoming and that they couldn't do enough for you. The rooms are yet another source of pride to me, as well as our overall service. The Breakfasts are (in my opinion - and that of many reviewers) the best in Stratford, so i'll add you to the growing list. We hope to welcome you back soon. Regards, Sol

An absolutely marvellous hotel right in the centre of town. Check in was easy, the rooms themselves are very airy and comfortable, and my enormous roll top bath was lovely after a long day. The scrambled eggs for breakfast were absolutely divine whilst my colleagues full English looked equally amazing.

Stayed at the White Swan for one night for a birthday treat to see a show at the RSC and Seriously couldnt fault this amazing hotel. Requested a room change on arrival as we wanted a bath, which was no problem at all. Also knowing it was my birthday they had left some lovely treats in the room for me. Girls on reception were very welcoming and helpful and all the other staff were brilliant too. The hotel, from rooms to bar and restaurant are stunning and very historic with some amazing centuries old curiosities Will definitely be back. Thanks

My partner and I were only in Stratford-Upon-Avon for an overnight trip, we headed out from our BnB in the pouring rain wanting a pub with some character. Fortunately for us this is the first pub we can across and it ticked the box and was lovely. Great atmosphere, even early on a Monday evening. Service was great, food was amazing. As someone who is intolerant to Garlic I really appreciate their extensive list of allergens accessed by a QR code that actually included onion/garlic. It may my whole experience much easier and relaxed.
