We called here on spec on Wednesday evening looking for a table for 7 people. The girl who appeared to be the manager of the restaurant told us that she could not offer a table immediately or for quite a while. I asked about eating in the bar and she said it was first come, first serve but she knew... More

I've been coming to the Lakes for a long time and this place used to have a superb reputation but things have sadly slipped. We visited whilst staying locally and found the service to be very patchy. Some staff were lovely and helpful but some were very jobs worth and would be better suited to working for the local council.... More

Myself and 4 friends have just stayed overnight here on a spa and stay offer. We arrived and were checked in by the friendly reception staff who also provided us with our lunch vouchers. The rooms are gorgeous, no bland magnolia, different wallpapers make each room interesting and individual. Really spacious and fully equipped with everything you'll need. We then... More

Unfortunately, we did not stay at the hotel but we did visit the Spa for one of their packages which included two treatments, a glass of champagne and light lunch. It was a birthday treat for me and my friend, and we both left feeling totally relaxed. I am a regular spa goer and I have to say that the... More

We came to the swan on the 14th August. When we were staying in a double room which had 2 double beds. When we arrived there were 2 magazines layers out on the bed with a baby toy. This was really exciting!!! We went out a bit to windermere on a cruise ship before going to the Beatrix potter attraction... More

We stayed for two nights at the swan inn. Greeted by very friendly reception staff and lovely clean room. We were happy to stay in the hotel for our whole stay except for one walk provided by the reception. The pub style restaurant is beautiful with amazing staff and relaxed feel. We loved that you can sit and eat looking... More

I booked a table online for our wedding anniversary after a friends recommendation and I am so glad I did. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was amazing and I highly recommend the Swan Inn. Thank you everybody.

Having enjoyed a few Sunday lunches it's been a while since I visited. I cannot believe it is the same place. We sat in the restaurant and after ordering we waited an hour for food ( it wasn't overly busy), when it finally arrived all five meals could only be described as average and certainly not worth the hefty price....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the picturesque River Leven at the southern tip of Lake Windermere, this 17th-century coaching inn is full of character and charm, but also offers well-equipped rooms, first-class leisure facilities and a fabulous ESPA spa. Enjoy the cosy, traditional lounges with roaring log fires, sample a unique local ale and enjoy a first-class dinner from the extensive hotel menu. The chef makes a point of finding the very best natural ingredients from local sources. If you're planning on a family trip, you'll find that The Swan has excellent facilities for children. Whether it's books and toys available in the library, a special restaurant menu or the complimentary milk and cookies served up at bedtime, younger guests are well looked after. Of course, there are many opportunities for them to play too - both in the hotel's 14 acres and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Whatever the reason for your trip, business or pleasure, you can be sure of the warmest of welcomes and will have the perfect base for exploring the wonderful beauty of the Lake District. ... more   less
