I don't know what "motel" means to you, but to me, it normally sounds like an unprepossessing place to stop that's right by a highway. Well, the Swan is indeed 3km (2 miles) from downtown Stratford, but its grounds are completely luxurious. This property has been run by the same family for more than 40 years, and it has a warm, gracious atmosphere. The rooms are nonsmoking, and they are simply but pleasantly arranged. The grounds are the real drawing card, with the romantic Victorian gazebo, beds of perennial flowers, and outdoor pool. Caveat: It's far enough from the center of town that I don't recommend staying here unless you're driving.
