A much needed midweek break from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. From the moment we walked through the door to leaving, we were treated with the utmost courtesy. We arrived a little too early to check in, but were given a guided door of the house before taking a seat outside on the terrace and enjoy a... More

We stayed at Swinton Park for the Tour de France. The hotel is set in its own vast parkland, overlooking a river, with its own herd of rare white deer. The staff are all very friendly, and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and relaxed. The hotel is a wonderful building, and the rooms are spacious... More

Stayed here for one night in early July. Imposing old property in beautiful grounds and with a very good restaurant. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and with all amenities including Molton Brown toiletries and complimentary whiskey and gin along with the tea, coffee, and water. The breakfast is well cooked and well served with a large choice. Great place to come... More

This hotel is a fairytale, but in the modern Disneyfied sense, not in the sense of olden times fairy tales that were actually rather bloody and gory. If I had to compare this to any fairytale it would have to be Cinderella. I DID go to the ball (but only figuratively there was no ball), I kept both of my... More

This is our 5th presentation dinner after a corporate golf day, but our first time at Swinton Park. What a fantastic experience! The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the accomodation amazing. Laura Walker did a fabulous job of organising everything to make it a memorable occasion for all our guests. Thanks to all the staff involved and... More

This was my second stay at this hotel a year on from the first. Many of the staff were the same and almost all were extremely friendly and helpful. Once again though the reception staff were the exception. This is a pity as the first unsmiling contact doesn't fill you with hope for the rest of the stay but stick... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel, a treat from our children, what a wonderful treat it was ! We could not fault it at all, the staff were so friendly and helpful, and all the extra little treats were special. The food in the restaurant was excellent. We had a fabulous... More

This place is stunning. It is a hidden gem set in the glorious Yorkshire dales. I have stayed at this hotel previously on business and had even treated my in-laws to two nights DBB in a suite for their 40 years wedding anniversary. However had neglected to bring my wife here until now. My previous experiences have all been positive... More

I booked this for my wife and I for our wedding anniversary. Hotel, service and staff first class. There are not many hotels come up to this standard. Restaurant serves wonderful food. Will definitely be returning for a longer stay.
