Stayed at The Swan on 06/06/15 for one night, however had to check in at the The Malthouse first which isn't a problem. All I can say is this is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in the whole of the UK. At £65 per room including breakfast for two people and the full English is cooked to... More

I was struggling to find somewhere at there must have been something going on in the local area. However I found this place on late-rooms and booked a room. When you arrive the building looks closed and in a bad state but soon found the sign pointing you towards the Matlhouse along the road. On entering I was told they... More

After arriving at the hotel and not being able to even get into the building, I noticed a small note on the window saying go next door, a little odd but hey, big deal. Got shown to the garish rabbit hole room, big problem. I booked a family room as separate beds were essential, only a double room was offered.... More

Our check in at the Malthouse was efficient and we weren't in any way inconvenienced by the fact that the Swan is a rooms only establishment. We really liked the charm of this old building but you need to duck your head on some low doorways! Our double room was comfortable and spacious, with a large bath in the en-suite.... More

Came to spend 2 nights. £160 so expecting something. The bed was broken when we got there (they said they had been having trouble with the beds) and moved us to another room down the road. We had to transport all our stuff over. Spend a night in a good room (The Malthouse) but the room was above the live... More

Stayed in this hotel last bonfire night (2013). The room was lovely and clean, very comfortable. Having a separate entrance to the rooms was great as you could come and go as you pleased. Staff very friendly and helpful, excellent service. Food also very good. Going to book another short break here for this summer!

Booked in as a stopover on our way back from the Wirral. Despite the flood barriers, the rain and the rising River Severn outside, the welcome couldn't have been warmer! The room was fine. Clean and equipped with your basics. The bed was a bit squishy - a memory foam mattress - it just wasn't what we were used to,... More
