Having stayed at The Swinton Hotel in January I came back on my own and it was just as great - the welcome back was just as warm and spent another very comfortable night. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfast was fantastic, again. Cannot recommend highly enough - quiet yet close to town and friendly service. If we... More

When you arrive at The Swinton Hotel, just few blocks away from Plymouth railway station, you find a family environment. Alan greets you warmly, carries your suitcase upstairs to your spacious, cozy, clean, bright room, and hands you the keys to the room and house. Then, in the morning, Lorraine serves you a delicious breakfast, making sure you have everything... More

I have stayed here many times during this past winter. It is the perfect location if you have business at the University and for tourist attractions. As a solo female visitors my main concern is to feel safe and relaxed when I'm away from home. Lorraine and Alan make me feel welcome every time it visit, so much so that... More

Stayed for one night. Room methodically clean, they keep a tight ship, but are also personable & pleasant. Unlike other hotels, they take a real pride in their establishment & make a special effort to make the guests feel at home. Highly recommended.

As a solo female traveler, Swinton has everything I could ever hope for. Safe and clean room, hearty breakfast, wifi connection. Alan made extra effort ran to the railway station just to clarify my confusing train ticket. Lorraine takes care of all the guests, with a warm and kind heart. Thumb up to Swinton!!

Excellent place to stay. I stayed here whilst sitting my exams at the uni, a stressful time made easier by Alan and Lorraine. Nothing was too much trouble, Alan even moved my car for me twice every day so I could get free parking. Would definitely recommend!

I have stayed at this wonderful small hotel many times since last September. It is very handy for the centre of Plymouth and the University where I work. Parking is no problem and the street is quiet at night. Alan and Lorraine could not be more welcoming, friendly or helpful and the hotel rooms are clean and warm with comfortable... More

I initially planned to stay for 3 nights but due to last minute changes to my schedule, I had to stay 4 nights instead and I must say I never regretted my choice. My hosts, Alan and Lorraine were a lovely couple. They both never failed to check in on me and I almost felt almost like my parents were... More

I wanted a good value, quiet hotel near the station for an overnight stay - with free wifi and a good comfortable bed. I found it at the Swinton. Alan and Lorraine are charming and thoughtful owners/hosts. The bed was firm with good weight duvets and pillows (not one of those horrible over-overstuffed under and over bed concoctions that seem... More
