Although we'd booked months ago at a higher rate, we found the hotel had improved its offer and included an afternoon tea to boot, without asking, they changed our booking without any prompting. We found the hotel and staff to be both friendly and comfy. Everything was to our satisfaction. The afternoon tea was terrific and superb value even if... More

Was attending a conference at Harrogate International Centre and this hotel was very convenient. Check In was efficient and fast but a smile would not have gone amiss. The single room was a good size and well equipped with particularly efficient castors on the bed which moved every time it was brushed against meaning that the bed had to be... More

This is the perfect place if you want to catch a feel for a time long past. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower worked really well. All the main bases covered in other words. it was disappointing that you have to pay extra for Internet access though. In my view, no hotel with respect for their... More

We visited on a Secret Escapes deal and were very impressed with the Afternoon Tea and Evening Dinner. Our room was a little disappointing on the house keeping front with a bit more than one day of dust on lamp bases and light shades and the carpet had bits on it. The bed linen was spotlessly clean as was the... More

A weekend break in Harrogate was enjoyed by myself and wife prior to our golden wedding. The Old Swan Hotel was a very good choice. The room was a classic double and was excellent, very well presented and clean on arrival. The staff were very friendly. We ate out in the town and returned with a bottle of wine to... More

Stayed here on a Secret Escapes two night break last week. First impressions were of old world charm and elegance, with excellent car parking room considering the city centre location. The staff throughout were friendly, helpful and professional. We got off to a good start with afternoon tea being off a delightfully high standard with a tiered platter full of... More

Stayed 2 nights on the Secret Escapes deal which was excellent value. The added bonus of afternoon tea being included was total indulgence. However, the weekend was made by the friendly, very helpful and efficient staff, good food both at dinner and breakfast, good housekeeping, (because for being such a large and old hotel, the place was very clean), fresh,...

This is a delightful hotel which has all the classic wow factors that you hope for in a period hotel. It is perfect for exploring central Harrogate and walking distance to the Convention Centre. There is ample parking available. It has a timeless elegance which is first noticeable on arrival and in the Cocktail Bar and Restaurant. There are a... More

We also went on the £99 deal to the Old Swan. 3 course, dinner, bed, breakfast & afternoon tea for TWO people included. How anybody can complain about anything is beyond my comprehension!! The hotel is gorgeous, the staff brilliant and the food nice. Our room was fairly small but clean and comfortable - great shower. I would not hesitate... More

Visited on a Friday via Secret Escapes- I had been concerned as I'd read to previous reviews though I nededn't have been. This fabulous hotel is located within minutes of Harrogate town centre. There is ample parking available also. Entrance into the hotel is via an old Victorian revolving door. Check in was swift and the receptionist was very smiley.... More
