Called in here for lunch on a dismal Monday and left feeling full of the joys of life! Wonderfully accommodating staff who offered to shift tables so we could sit by the fire to eat. Best ploughmans my partner has ever had with rare breed beef, four local cheeses, ham, three homemade pickles and homemade bread. I had a delicious... More

We have just spent a most enjoyable break at the White Swan Inn. We arrived shortly after mid day and because our room was ready, Lucy, from reception showed us to our "hideaway" accommodation. We felt we had gained an extra three hours on our stay. Our room was excellent, very warm, clean, plenty of space and everything we needed:... More

My husband and I called here for lunch with our 10 month old baby during a short break in Pickering. We were immediately welcomed by the warm and jolly receptionist who was very accommodating providing a high chair and offering to put the pram in a back room out of our way. We were seated in a room with an... More

Me and my partner have just come back from a 1 night stay at The Swan Inn and it definitely wasn't long enough. The place exceeding our expectations entirely. Firstly and most importantly for us, we were able to take our dog and the staff and hotel were so accommodating and dog friendly. The hotel itself was cosy and warm... More

We pulled in to the car park, my dad is disabled and that was what drew us initially. Also the fact that it was just after two and they were advertising serving food until 2 30. We were seated in a lovely room, the restaurant as the bar seating areas were full. The room was well presented, with great decor,... More

We stayed for two nights to break a long journey south. Although not exactly en route it was at about the halfway mark distance wise and well worth the small detour. We stayed in one of the "hideaway" rooms in the courtyard as we had our dog with us. It was spacious and comfortable and just across from the cosy... More

We had a pleasant two night stay at the White Swan Inn. However when we checked in we were asked if we were with 'Secret Escapes'. We weren't, but from that point on we wondered if we were really getting value for money. The standard double room rate we paid was £150. Our room was very clean and comfortable albeit... More

Have stayed here several times and tried several rooms. The outside rooms are more expensive and are very nice but are far too hot, even in middle of winter due to underfloor heating. Inside the hotel rooms are good, however lighting could be improved. Food quality is excellent, and service is outstanding. A lovely log fire is in the lounge... More

We where treated to a stay here by our lovely children as a gift for our Ruby wedding anniversary. We stayed in one of the hideaway cottages, and it was perfect, we enjoyed a lovely evening meal there, and a scrummy breakfast the next morning

I've stayed here several times now and I will keep returning. The food is great especially Monday Steak Night. The rooms are clean and tidy and some have a great view of the town. Situated in the centre of town, it has its own car park and a well stocked friendly bar. Dogs are also welcome in the bars.
