Received a warm welcome at this ancient coaching inn, which is beautifully decorated and preserved. I was shown to a very comfortable room and bathroom overlooking the market street. It had lots of great toiletries and plenty of soft towels. Also a large flat-screen TV, magazines, good tea and coffee making equipment. The breakfast was superb, plenty of choice, lots... More

Quite nice, definitely the best in the neighbourhood. Very friendly, good food, very old and traditional but with acceptable facilities and services. Plenty of car parking 'through the arch' behind the hotel. Service sometimes can be a little slow, bar staff sometimes missing 'multi tasking', but if you are really in such a hurry maybe you shouldn't have come to... More

I wrote about a staffing issue after an appalling experience between Christmas and New Year (see my February review). That review received a lot of support and correspondence directly with me, with more than a few similar experiences. In my own case, I wrote immediately to the owner, Victor Buchanan. The response was rather astonishing. An initial text / call... More

On a recent visit to York we stopped off our busy sightseeing for a little rest and some good food. Good atmosphere and really nice food would definitely return when we visit York again good selection of ales too.

Booked a hideaway room for 2 nights in April which included afternoon tea on arrival.The room was perfect, we couldn't fault it. Food in the restaurant was excellent and the service was professional and friendly. A very relaxed atmosphere and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Also plenty of free parking and a private lounge for residents, with full... More

Just spent 2 nights in a hideaway room which was spacious and very clean with a great bathroom.The manageress and staff were really friendly and professional throughout the hotel. Parking is convenient and very easy. We ate in the restaurant on both nights and was of a very high standard with lovely beer & wines.

Stayed at the White Swan several times and the rooms and staff are impeccable. We pop in on the odd occasion at lunchtimes and the two small rooms (bar in one) offer a quiet homely atmosphere. Food in the evenings is what I can only discribe as 'exclusive' haute quissene. Be prepared for tiny decorative portions with a very high... More

I recently stayed in this delightful hotel with my mother. Having booked a Vintage Room, our original expectations were far than surpassed with the two storey living and bedroom arrangement. The rooms were spacious, very tastefully designed with some lovely charming character features. The staff were extremely obliging and friendly. We had dinner and again, we both are normally quite...

Generally good place to stay although expensive, some attention detail in the room finish might improve quality. Good location for NY Moors, Dalby Forest and other walks. Also NY Moors Railway and other attractions in and around Pickering. Bothy very warm and pleasant on a cold evening! Food (Dinner and breakfast ) in restaurant both EXCELLENT, service too!!
