We stayed for one night and that was too long. Our room was pokey and the bathroom so small that there was insufficient room at the side of the bath to towel off. The fan did not work and the plumbing was a mess with dust and debris behind the pipes. The public rooms are well presented and the buffet... More

We stayed at The Old Swan for a corporate weekend and were given a suite down the right hand side of the building. The decor was reasonably fresh, the suite was spacious and the bathroom was lovely. Breakfast was just ok but all the staff were friendly. We managed to park right outside the front door too which was a... More

Our stay was disappointing. Our room was small but ok for a night. No view at all, and it wasn't the cleanest. Could do with a central light so you can see to use the mirror. The bed is not attached to the bedhead so it slides across the room if you sit up to read. Annoying! Breakfast was not... More

I came here for the annual BSA conference. I chose this hotel because last time I stayed here, the Majestic was dreadful. I did not imagine that there could be an even worse hotel in Harrogate... The bedrooms are shabby and in desperate need of complete refurbishment. This is no shabby chic, it's just plain shabby. The bathroom is tiny... More

It was a bit of a last minute booking, but the hotel is very close to the town centre and, more importantly for this trip to the international conference centre. A very warm and efficient greeting. Quite a small, but perfectly functional room - single bed though. I'd traveled from London and just wanted to chill our in front of... More

We booked in at the Old Swan hotel via a special two night deal from a well know internet holiday company. If you fancy a nice relaxing break, this is the place for you. Although I found the standard double beds a bit small, the service and ambience were excellent. The evening meal on both nights was very good, though... More

Stayed at the Old Swan Hotel on a secret escapes deal, didnt read any reviews before I booked, which is unusual for me, but when I did, was a little anxious about the rooms. Therefore I paid for an upgrade before we went, so cannot comment on what room I would have had on the deal. However, the room we... More
