I've based myself here, twice weekly, for 5 months now. I love the attentive attitude of the staff..I could be 50 years back in time, in all honesty....coal fire in the Lounge, Victoriana all around,a wide mix of interesting clients who for people watchers like me, is heaven.... No queuing or face pulling at breakfast, waiting for one of those... More

We had a party for 94 people with 45 bedrooms. Leading up to the event the conference staff were great and responded to our questions very promptly. On the night they followed all the instructions we'd given which is probably a first for me in 20 years of organising similar events. We usually have problems that I have to resolve.... More

We stayed at the Old Swan during a visit to Yorkshire to see family and we will definitely return. The hotel has an old fashioned style and charm and our room was equally impressive. We had a large bedroom with lovely high celing and a large bathroom. Staff were friendly and courteous and the Yorkshire breakfast set us up wonderfully... More

We visited Harrogate en route to the Ebor meeting at York and it was well worth the visit. The hotel has great charm and the staff were excellent- no wonder Agatha hid out there in the past!We will certainly be returning in the future.

We stayed here on Friday night as we had booked to attend a Christmas do, for all the hotel is lovely and our room was very nice the Christmas party night was dissapointing, we waited a very long time between courses and the room was freezing.

Just returned from a lovely few days in Harrogate. The old hotel looked lovely as indeed did the town. Christmas lights brought cheer despite the atrocious weather. Nice warm room on the third floor with small but relatively new bath room. Breakfast was fine. My one disappointment was the evening meal which was OK but by no means memorable. The... More

I am currently disabled and wheelchair bound due to illness. My course of chemo was ending and my husband decided we needed a break so we chose Harrogate as it is reasonably close to home and The Old Swan looked so beautiful. I informed them of my disability when we booked several weeks previous to our stay. We were disappointed... More

A 2 night business stay but could have enjoyed 5! The staff were welcoming, the room was clean, fresh and spacious - what are some people complaining about? The hotel had lots of character, none of which had been lost in modernisation. The only criticism would be the choice of menu - imaginative but perhaps trying too hard on a... More
