No one to meet us at the door nor in reception.Wandered the long corridors and eventually found the dining room.Asked if we would like a drink in The Drawing Room to which we assented.Two seating areas occupied but all other tables except one uncleared with the remnants of drinks, tea and...

When Julian Fellowes created "Downton Abbey," we seriously suspect that he may have been inspired by the Cunliffe-Lister family and their ancestral castle home, which has been exquisitely transformed into a modern spa hotel (manned by a very attentive and friendly staff) that still retains its historical atmosphere and features. We spent a very relaxing 2-day mini-break here, staying in... More

This place has become our bolt hole, and I cannot talk highly enough about the place, the location, the rooms, the staff, the service and then there is the food, which is simply original & exquisite. Its a great place from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales; Hawes & Grassington are well worth including on any excursion, and don't forget... More

We recently stayed for four nights at Swinton Park. I was initially reticent about whether they really did welcome families as they claimed to do (my twins are five years old) . From the moment we arrived to the time we left they could not have made my boys feel more at home. The staff are a credit to the... More

These guys really know how to do things well. We have stayed in some historic hotels and, to be frank, most are at least a little jaded and oversold. This one, however, has everything. A magnificent gateway leads to a sweeping drive and a covered portico where we alight sheltered from the rain, stroll into Reception and register – we... More

We stayed here in March 2014 for two nights, beautiful room - service from all the members of staff was just right. The restaurant and sitting rooms are beautifully restored, wonderfully decorated and simply grand. The restaurant was full on the Saturday and we enjoyed the tasting menu with the flight of wines - well presented food, not too much... More

From the moment you arrive you can tell Swinton Park is very special. We took time to enjoy the Spa, had dinner at the Chef's table in the Cookery School and had an excellent breakfast. Service is impeccable and even though it is a very old building the rooms have everything you need (with some nice touches in terms of... More

This was a birthday treat and all I can say about this hotel is it's gorgeous. The food, the bedroom, staff, service faultless- it's one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Thank-you. Will be back again.
