3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

this is an imposing and well situated hotel `with good quality food and pleasant staff. Unfortunately this is marred by small rooms and extortionate wi-fi charges. In addition when away from the excellent ground floor reception and bar area there is a general 'tired' look which is a pity.No A/C and windows that only just open an inch or so.

Much agreed hotel room is much need of tlc. Larger double beds are needed. Air con or fans would be a bonus as almost sheltered. Breakfast was overcooked Overall okay but not worth the money. Customer service was great on the plus side

Stayed at the hotel for a friend's wedding which was wonderful. The food at the wedding breakfast was lovely and the sticky toffee pudding was devine. The room was adequate but was dissapointed with breakfast, the cooked breakfast wasn't great, no pastries and waited more than 10 minutes for them to bring hot drinks.

My wife and I stayed here in August. We always fancied staying in this historic hotel. We found the parking on arrival was awkward due to lack of spaces.however once inside the foyer all was well. The suite we had on the third floor was spacious,clean and warm.( a little too warm) The bathroom was a little cramped though. We... More

The Old Swan was the venue for a conference. Its a good looking building set in beautiful surroundings. But then Harrogate is a beautiful city. The conference was dull, a lot lawyers being moderately boring, not the fault of the Old Swan but then I digress which sadly the lawyers did not it would have made them more interesting. Back...

I've stayed here many times on business, this was my worse experience. The lift was broken, the pillows were lumpy, the noise from the wedding parties and the smokers all contributed to a poor nights sleep. Add that to no free wi-fi and rude staff in the restaurant (only had breakfast here) and there are few good reasons to stay... More

This is my type of hotel with style and history, lovely old furniture and fittings giving an ambience of luxury rather than the antiseptic look of modern hotels. Everything could have wanted was in bedroom and bathroom only criticism was the room was very hot. All staff we encountered were very efficient and friendly without being "in your face" and... More
