  • Couple

    extremely close to the RST theatre, no more than 5m walk; very quiet, free parking, great breakfast and very comfortable bedroom.

    waiting staff on the restaurant could be increased in numbers - or efficiency - waiting 15 minutes for the waiter to take my breakfast order, while the restaurant is half full is the only negative item to point out - the breakfast itself was fantastic.

    Location

    Being charged £5 for overnight parking, requiring to pay £2 to use a credit card. Seemed very penny pinching for 4 star £110 room

    Location.

    Room far too hot. Turned rad down to low and opened windows. Tv did not work, changed room. Inconvenient having just unpacked.

    very convenient location, breakfast excellent,reception staff excellent.rooms needed updating.

  • Older travelers

    just the area we visited.

    The shower tray was very slippery when wet. The bathroom hanging and shelf space was limited.The tables (for 2 people) in the restaurant were far too small and this was very annoying. The space allowed for the tables was also not adequate for personal dining. There were nice lawned areas in the grounds of the hotel but no tables and chairs or anywhere to sit.The air con did not work correctly and the safe was locked so we couldnt use it.

  • Couple
    7.0

    We stayed at the Swan's Nest, a last minute booking and had a thoroughly nice time. Some of the rooms are a little older and due for modernising, for example our room didn't have internet, however they were clean, very comfortable and the staff were lovely. Fantastic showers!

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Excellent location just a few moments from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and town centre of Stratford upon Avon. The hotel receptionist was particularly welcoming and efficient.

    The hotel is showing its age and needs refurbishing.

  • Single
    7.0

    Close to both family accommodation and centre of Statford

    The charge for the car park

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The location and the food in the bar , bar staf also very friendly use of spa at sister hotel a bonus

    Booking in rather laboriuos also had to pa yfor car aprk

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Accessibility to the town and theatre

    We had 4 rooms, and each had a niggling fault-the telephone did not work in one room so could not use room service, light bulbs were not working in another, the toliet seat was broken in a third and the telephone kept ringing at 2am with no means of stopping it.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Location - clean rooms

    Extra charges for parking and very expensive breakfasts which we did not have.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    To say that a Premier Inn costs £60 a night and this hotel was double, yet the quality was far less than that of a Premier Inn and I would not stay there again.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Crockery at breakfast culd have been cleaner and the staff appeared to rush you.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Location was great lovely hotel couldn't fault it.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had the feeling that they placed a very high priority on making sure that we were comfortable, and that we could approach them for any assistance we might need. The location is also ideal of course, for attending the theatre or shopping in the town centre.

    We have no major complaints really. The hotel was very crowded on Saturday night, and the bar was quite noisy, but that's to be expected and did not bother us while we were in our room. The only other difficulty that we had was in finding a spot in the car park. Others use the hotel car park who are not guests, and so it is tough to find a spot.
