White Swan Inn Pickering was excellent, staff very helpful and pleasant, food excellent, the little touches going that extra bit were appreciated. The Bothy is an excellent idea somewhere quiet to relax have afternoon, or just a drink and one of the chefs homemade biscuits which were wonderful much better than the packaged variety you usually get. We had afternoon... More

Booked 2 nights here through Secret Escapes based on good reviews, so we were initially disappointed when we arrived to find our choice of room not available. However, Sarah the receptionist sorted the problem and we were given the superior vintage room which was excellent, however, through no fault of the hotel the occupiers of the room above didn't appear...

We have always enjoyed visiting this area and chose this hotel for its proximity and luxurious accommodation. The hotel is easy to find in the centre of Pickering and there is plenty of parking close to the rooms. Our arrival nearly began with disaster. Our booking had been overlooked but the receptionist apologised and dealt with the situation swiftly. We... More

My wife & I booked 2 nights For Easter for a short break 7 weeks after my wife had undergone surgery. We cannot fault the accommodation, food or staff, who were always cheerful & helpful. We will be going back & would recommend the Hotel to anyone wanting a base for the area, or just for an excellent meal, but... More

Very comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom. Food was well presented and tasty. The breakfast was very good, bacon tasty and not fatty, good selection of cereals and fruit, and great to see jam and marmalade in proper jars and butter in a dish not in one of those silly packets you have trouble opening. Dining room pleasant and staff friendly and... More

What a fantastic place ! Staff are very friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Food is excellent, rooms very comfortable. Had a very relaxed, enjoyable stay. Will be returning. Used it as a base for North Yorkshire, ideal to visit Whitby, Scarborough and York.

We had an opportunity to spend the weekend away and had been looking forward to our break in The White Swan. We were not disappointed, we had a lovely warm welcome, we stayed in the Hideaway treat room, which was amazing, the bed was so comfortable and the whole room was a treat! Dinner was delicious and although we didnt... More

We stayed 2 nights over the Easter weekend and had a very pleasant stay. We did find a bag of mouldy fruit in one of the drawers that a previous unpleasant guest must have left - perhaps they did it deliberately to get a mention on Trip Advisor??!! However - the staff could not have been more apologetic and when... More

We spent the nights of 26th and 27th March at the White Swan Inn. We arrived without reservation and were kindly shown two different types of rooms by the receptionist. We chose the modern Hideaway room (#21) in the converted stables, which was spacious and nicely designed, furnished and decorated. Very nice bathroom too. We enjoyed our (free) afternoon tea...
