A very very nice place , the decor and fittings in the rooms is of a high standard and luxurious , but this is not the quiet refuge it is sold as and we think overpriced for what you get and where it is .

We stayed at the White Swan for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend and must say it was wonderful experience. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them We were on room only basis and stayed in a Hideaway Room which was very well appointed with a lovely big bed and...

My wife and I stayed at The White Swan for about the 5th time last weekend. We went to Pickering primarily to go to the Rosedale Show, a fantastic traditional country show. But we also wanted to use again the NYMR as it's based in Pickering. The White Swan is a marvellous hotel with very comfortable rooms, a terrific bar... More

I will definitely be staying at this hotel again. We stayed in the hideaway treat suit and it really was stunning. The stay was part of my boyfriends 21st present and the staff at the hotel did everything they could to make us feel welcome and to make the stay special. We ate the restaurant within the hotel for both... More

Stayed here the weekend just gone for 2 nights with my partner... Have to say wasn't impressed due to a number of reasons... The negatives: - On the first night our sheets smelt like FISH! It was vile but unfortunately there was no one downstairs overnight to complain to (we would have changed the sheets ourselves!! ) so we had... More

My wife and I were nearly put off booking by the few poor reviews - particularly those mentioning a problem with flies. I am so glad we booked on the basis of the overwhelming number of positive reviews. From the very first contact - booking by telephone - the staff throughout the hotel were friendly, helpful and professional - just... More

Beautiful accommodation (we were in one of the outside apartments). Stone floors, gorgeous bathroom, separate bath and drencher shower. Comfy bed, like a massive marshmallow (but mattress not too soft). Great minibar. Basic tea, coffee, toiletries & hairdryer. Food and service were superb. There was a blip at breakfast on the second day - they forgot our order, we waited... More

My husband and I had an overnight stay with another couple of friends. The hotel is close to railway station if you fancy a ride on a steam train. Due to the location of our rooms, we were all kept awake by drinkers in the wine bar next door. We all felt our stay wasnt very good value for money... More

We stayed here for 1 night as we were attending a concert a few miles away. We were met at reception by very friendly efficient staff one of whom showed us to our "hideaway" room. On the ground floor was a lounge type room with a huge freestanding bath, also a wet room with his and hers double headed wet... More

We stayed two nights here in August 2014. On arrival we were advised that check-in was not until 3pm - no problem as Pickering is a very pleasant little town and a couple of hours are easily passed wandering the shops or castle. We also enjoyed lunch here whilst we waitied - dogs are allowed in the public bar areas,... More

Dear Niknak Thank you for your most kind review. Sorry the weather wasn't fantastic this time. When you feel you can stop looking at the scales you should come back (for Christmas at the White Swan maybe - I note your logo on here) I also find it impossible to eat salads in the face of charcoal grilled Ginger Pig...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you at this proper family run Inn. Next year will be our 30th at The White Swan and we have just about got things organised. From the moment you walk through the doors you'll feel at home. We aim to keep things simple and just let you relax ...Tom Parker Bowles reckons 'Every market town should have a White Swan' and the Daily Telegraph described us as 'God's own Country Pub' on a recent visit. If you read the reviews here you will get a flavour of what we are trying to do. We are an Inn with a lovely restaurant and 2 rosette food but not the plastic fine dining you find in many four star properties. Real food, real people, lovely rooms and great value for money.And by the way if you are not delighted I will give you your money back so long as you tell us at the time.Victor Buchanan - Owner ... more   less
