Me and partner stopped in one room and his parents another, we were in Harrogate for one night for business event (men) and shopping (women)! This hotel was in a good location for the event, shopping and eating but this is where the positives end for me really. The hotel is quite dated, but I would expect this, however, the... More

We also travelled as part of a group and we were also disappointed with this hotel. Service at breakfast was slow and pastries had run out when we arrived for breakfast. Also, in a quintisentially English hotel - there was no marmalade! My breakfast cup was dirty and had a hair in it. When I pointed it out to a... More

We took the only room available at £190 for 1 night. (Sat 20th Sept). The room was cold, we informed the Reception, still cold when we go back several hours later, the sink was cracked and leaked (room 159), paint flaking off the fire door, radiator very rusty in bathroom, breakfast no better than a cheap boarding house, waitress didn't...

Reading the two previous reviews, makes me wonder if I stayed at the same place.. I was with a rail tour group but travelling on my own within the group so maybe the hotel didn't have to make much of an effort. My room was on the first floor back and was extremely hot, even though the weather was not... More

The Old Swan has that quintessential air of elegance about it perched majestically up a slight incline very close to the chic that is Harrogate Town Centre. Beautiful rooms that combine the modern with the bygone and I can just imagine writers finding the whole vibe as inspiring to write a crime thriller or whodunit. The rooms are clean and... More

Our wedding was at The Old Swan on 30 August 2014, and was originally chosen as (apart from being beautiful) we needed to be able to accommodate from 10 to 300 people while still being manageable and affordable. It finalised with only 100 guests including children but with our friends and family being very far-flung, we really could not guess... More

As the name suggests this is an old building and so you must expect some wear and tear and some rather squeaky floor boards.We may have been lucky with our room as it was small but adequate.When originally built there wouldn`t have been an on suite which took up a third of the original. The food was alright but the... More

We attended a Murder Mystery weekend at the Old Swan in Harrogate. It was great fun. Everything ran very smoothly. The bedrooms were very comfortable and everything worked well. The hair dryer was not in the bathroom which I find much more convenient since it allows someone else the use the bathroom while I dry my hair and apply make-up.... More

We stayed for one night in a superior room (242). The room, and its facilities were perfectly fine (if a touch expensive).The common parts of the hotel need a bit of tlc, but we weren't in the hotel for long. The bar was fine, and the breakfast was excellent. However for such a large hotel, the car-parking facilities are hopelessly... More

It is supposed to be 'an institution' in Harrogate. That it may be but it is showing its age and resting on past laurels. The room in which we stayed had cracks in the wall paper and mold on the shower tiles. The indicator lights on the lift (elevator) call buttons didn't work. The walls in the room and corridors...
