My friend and I arrived on a rainy Monday afternoon for afternoon tea or possibly a light bite off the lunch menu. We walked through the lounge until we found someone as bar was empty and came across the manager. A very unfriendly welcome while he was dashing about, no hello ladies just a blank stare and asked us what... More

We stayed at the Swan thanks to a voucher given as a Christmas gift from our children, and it was a wonderful experience. The building dates back many centuries and is just the most stunning piece of architecture, beautifully restored and with staff of the highest quality. The food in the restaurant was of the highest quality and to top... More

It is 15 years since we last visited this hotel and what a tranformation. It is in a lovely higgledy-piggledy Tudor timbered building with glorious beams everywhere but it is now superbly fitted out, the staff are brilliant -particularly on Reception and in the Restaurant, the food was good and now they have a Spa as well - where the...

Okay, this is pretty costly for outside London,but the place is top rank. Food fabulous in the restaurant and the ambiance very restful. We had booked a deal for one night with dinner for round £250 for a couple. We were booked in with the easy and unobtrusive assistance of an excellent porter (Pete). It was a delightful experience and... More

The Swan exudes charm and class from beginning to end. My visit was to celebrate my 70th birthday. We had stayed in the hotel memorably some forty years before. I was given a wonderful feature suite, which had magnificent beams, lovely comfortable bed, armchair and desk. A separate sitting room contained a second TV, lounge suite, great closet space with...

We have stayed here a few times when we visit my Aunt who lives in Horringer. The staff are so welcoming and polite, and do their absolute best to ensure everyone has a truly enjoyable stay. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated. I love the hotel's character with the slanted floors and lovely wooden beams. The food is... More

Beautiful classy romantic hotel, not cheap but worth it! Lovely food, pretty village to walk round, quirky rooms - a quiet corner of England to celebrate something special. Some gorgeous local shops selling quality goods - good for a weekend or overnight stay but a week probably too long!

Not sure I want to write this, as I have found the most fantastic spa, and really don't want to share it, but that would be wrong. I visited today with my daughter, both of us are therapists and have visited most of the top spas, we are often disappointed with the therapists not up to our standards or the... More
