Had a friendly welcome on arrival at the Old Swan, we arrived in the morning, but the young lady said our room was ready, so we could check in early, which was a welcome surprise. The room was a bit dark,with no view, but it was clean and comfortable, we could have paid extra for a bigger room,but had decided... More

I was keen to return to the Old Swan having stayed a few years ago when attending a conference in town.This time we were just sightseeing and having a mini break from the kids.The hotel has its own lovely grounds and was very busy - I think a coin fair was being held over the weekend and we struggled to...

The hotel is impressive and has good parking (a luxury for a Harrogate Hotel). We opted to pay a little extra for an executive room and weren't disappointed; the upgraded room was excellent. The mattress was a little hard for our taste but it didn't spoil our stay. Even though we were at the front of the hotel its location... More

Booked via Secret Escapes for a nights b and b with a two course evening meal, mini afternoon tea and bottle of wine. On arrival check in was easy and quick with excellent staff. The double room was a good size, clean and well equipped. The inclusive food was acceptable, although some items were not available on he menu. The... More

We stayed overnight at the Old Swan to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday, as we were seeing a show at the Harrogate Theatre. We chose this hotel quite randomly as we know very little about the town - and are we glad we did! We paid a bit extra for an executive room. From the moment we arrived it was... More

We stayed overnight for dinner, bed and breakfast and really enjoyed the menu (scallops and black pudding fritters, saddle of rabbit, chocolate and peanut tart + braised pigs cheeks with cider jus, baked onions, and Yorkshire cheeseboard), great pinot noir wine and excellent, attentive but low-key service. Breakfast was a feast of fresh fruit, nuts, croissants and Danish pastries and... More

Booked an executive double room for a two night stay for myself and husband. On arrival the receptionist was quite abrupt and gave us no information as to when breakfast was served where it was and more importantly where our room was. On opening the door to our executive room we were quite taken aback by how small the bathroom... More

The hotel itself is lovely, the inside lounges are stylish and really welcoming with classy decor. The rooms are a good size with the usual amenities you would find in hotel, the shower is amazing! The room looked like it hadn't been cleaned to a good standard, it was dusty and the bathroom bin hadnt been emptied, there were no... More

After reading some of the reviews I was a little worried. However, it wasn't that bad. We had upgraded to an executive room, although large and clean, it could have done with a little updating. The beds were really comfortable, so no complaints there. The bathroom was huge and very modern, our only problem was that the shower worked, but... More

We came up from Kent on Sun to deliver our son to the Army College, was very emotional saying goodbye on Mothers Day! When I telephoned and booked the receptionist was lovely when she... More
