Very disappointing. Myself and my partner stayed at the swan hotel in Harrogate for 2 nights in June 2014 for £108 per night. We were attending a wedding on the Saturday night so thought that we would treat ourselves to a break at your hotel. However, when we saw our room we were very disappointed. It was very small and...

I stayed here for a three-day conference. My room (240) was a nice size, with a large double bed, a desk, two armchairs and space to move around. It had a large window looking towards the back, and was quiet. The bathroom was small but adequate and the shower was powerful. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel... More

I stayed here whilst attending a conference. It was grossly overpriced. My room was dark and airless. Breakfast was bearable and chose not to risk the restaurant after hearing tales of culinary woe from colleagues. A 4 bedded serviced apartment was half the price and at least twice as good. I won't be going back to this hotel.

My husband and myself stayed at the Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate over the Grand Depart weekend of the Tour de France in July this year, and had mixed thoughts on our stay! The hotel is without doubt, very old and charming, and the entrance lobby and downstairs areas are full of charm and elegance. We personally felt the décor... More

I suppose everyone says that! My daughter's wedding was held at the Old Swan in Harrogate on Sunday 13th July. The organising staff (Wedding planner and Events manager) were too wonderful and helpful for me to describe. The effort and planning they put into it were superb, especially as I have a control-oriented, every-last-detail-matters daughter and son-in-law. They were with... More

I recently got married in this hotel . It's a very beautiful hotel , it's old but charming. Our room had a 4 post bed and a roll top bath which was amazing. You can't beat the location of the hotel and it has beautiful grounds. Jessica was great at helping us plan everything and Paul who helped us on... More

We stopped here and to be honest we didn't have a great choice of hotels available in the area as we had left it until the last minute to attend the Home and Gift show at the HIC. The cost for a classic double inc. brekkie was £190 and with a four star rating and the cost, I expected much... More

Stayed here two nights to attend The Great Yorkshire Show. The location is what sells it having ample car parking, walking distance from town & close to all main road routes. Parts of the hotel are very tired & shabby being in need of decoration. When booking a double room it is expected that you get a double bed not... More

We got married at the Swan in June 2014. What can I say from the moment that I booked our wedding up until the day we got married everything was great. Any problems we had on the lead up to the wedding were resolved quickly and efficiently. Both Helen and Jessica did an amazing job helping with the planning! I... More
