About the The Swans Nest Hotel Stratford

Stratford upon Avon is steeped in Shakespearean history, and the town’s finest hotels offer accommodation that is rich with heritage. The Macdonald Swan’s Nest Hotel dates from the late 17th century and is one of Stratford’s earliest examples of a red brick building. The hotel was extensively refurbished in 2008, breathing new life into the venue and bringing some new additions to the facilities.
