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...

I stayed here for a couple of nights in one of the Vintage Rooms. The room itself was pretty small, but well decorated and spotlessly clean so I shouldn't complain. Overall, the hotel was really cosy and welcoming with open fires and friendly staff who although sometimes appearing stressed, were accommodating, helpful and always smiling. One of the best features... More

Booked last minute... room 14 the retreat. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food amazing if a little expensive (well for us anway, but I suppose not really for the standard.) I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing break in this lovely town. Hope to visit again.

The hotel was very comfortable and small enough that the the level of customer service was personal, perhaps the friendliest staff I have ever experienced. The two night stay with Secret Escapes was good value for money and the Afternoon Tea and Deli Lunch were excellent. The Restaurant was also to a good standard and the food was very home-made...

I moved to Pickering a little while ago and the White Swann Inn has fast become a favourite place. I always take friends and family who visit here as its very homely, the staff are fantastic and it's a perfect example of a Yorkshire Inn. Perfect. See you again soon!

My husband and I spent two nights at the White Swan as part of a Secret Escapes deal. It is an absolutely gorgeous place. We were both feeling tired so really appreciated the comfortable, cosy and peaceful room (on the first floor). At the same time, it was great to be able to step out of the Inn straight into... More

Myself and my husband have just returned from a perfect weekend away at the White Swan Inn and couldnt fault anything about our stay. We stayed in one of the Hideaway rooms at the rear of the hotel which are beautifully appointed. We had a very comfy bed with lovely crisp bedding, ample space and a beautiful bathroom with bath...
