We just got back from The White Swan after booking a 2 night stay for our anniversary. It was a wonderful stay from the moment we arrived, where we were met a reception and showed to our room, which was fantastic. We booked the hideaway treat room, which lived up to our expectations. It has a beautiful large bath in... More

Fab service from the moment we arrived. Our room was lovely outside in the courtyard. The room was nicely appointed with ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, tea/coffee making facilities, honesty bar and very comfy bed with superb quality linen. We have a dirnk in the bar and then ate in the newly decorated dining room with friends. Steaks and bacon... More

After spending two nights here for my wife's birthday we decided to revisit late January for my own birthday. Previously our room was a hideaway retreat which was delightful, this time we chose the princess and the pea room! At 5' 3" it was very amusing to see my wife ascend the extremely high bed after a few drinks. (There... More

Excellent service from the reception when we arrived, to when we checked out. Room very comfortable, clean and very well decorated. Stayed for Friday and Saturday night, ate in bar on first night, then booked for restaurant on Saturday night. Very busy but staff were excellent. Food, especially the Belly Pork, was delicious. Great choice on menu. Overall, an excellent... More

Quality throughout here, in the rooms, restaurant, quaint bar area. Obviously an established haunt for people who want a high level of hotel with an olde worldy feel to it. The rooms were to a high spec with modern bathrooms, good beds and very clean. Plenty of parking at the back. A bit expensive for me.

We stayed here on March 14th & 15th in Room 15. We arrived early and was told the room was not ready (check in 3pm). We ordered a Ploughmans mix to share as we could see it was huge from another table. The platter was excellent but the bread roll cut in half was like a brick and could possibly... More

Thank you for your review and I'm sorry that your check-in was delayed, that you don't like our bread and that George needs to spend more time with a hair-brush. I suspect that in trying to please he has ended up doing the opposite and he will be gutted to read this here. It is someone else's responsibility to order... More

We chose this hotel from recommendation and were not disappointed. From the initial booking(Becky I think) to the service generally,nothing was too much trouble. If there was any complaint at times they maybe tried too hard!! The whole atmosphere of the hotel was relaxed,just what is needed for a"wind down" weekend. The food was wholesome without being fussy,excellent quality and... More

It is inevitable that in its lifetime an hotel will have to deal with unhappy paying guests. Savvy owners see this as an opportunity to increase business by resolving these issues in as deft a manner as possible; it is the sort of thing that creates genuine customer loyalty, repeat business and even turning those people into brand ambassadors.

So you finally manage to get your review published at the umpteenth attempt, readers can guess why TripAdvisor removed your initial attempts. You are making the assumption that all custom is good custom. It is - so long as it maintains a respect for the people working in the business. A customer can change from being an asset of the...

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
