Booked a last minute spa break here having been let down by a nearby hotel. It was a surprise break for my daughter and I must say the girls on reception were brilliant, they literally had 10 minutes to get us a room ready. They even left a gift and card in the room as it was her birthday. The... More

Food terrible, staff and service terrible. You will be disappointed. Only reason why they do well is purely on there location on the stunning river. Que was huge had plenty of staff who all moved at snail pace manager was yawning and disinterested. Girl in front of me asked for a bottle of sparkling water he proceeded in slowly walking... More

After an amazing weekend here two years ago, my partner and I returned for a special occasion. Again the hotel was very good and the rooms are a great standard (though we had a deluxe room and I'm not sure what the difference was to a standard room). The low score is due to the restaurant and staff. On Friday... More

Stayed in the riverside Beatrix Suite. The room was beautiful and well laid out, there was a dolls house in the room for my eight year old daughter and a psp for my 11 year old son. The service and food were both exceptional and the kids loved calling room service at night to get their complementary hot milk and... More

We had a mini suite for our 40th wedding anniversary. The room was excellent with all the facilities we would have wanted. It was a very busy weekend but the bar food arrived promptly despite that. Later for dinner, we had to chase a couple of things up but the service was very good and any issues were well explained... More

We called here a few days ago as the setting is beautiful and found a table outside overlooking the river. I went in to order drinks and picked up a menu whilst my husband stayed outside with our three dogs.. I didnt get so much as a hello or welcome from the man behind the bar. I ordered my husband...

We ate at the Swan as we stayed at a nearby B&B. We didn't book so the restaurant was full but the bar served the same food. There wasn't a huge choice for main meals but the food was very good and very generous portions. Overall the food was very nice it's just the bar lacked a little cosy /... More

We have stayed at this hotel three times now. It's a lovely hotel. If you like floral prints you'll be in your element. The rooms are very comfortable. Bathrooms great, beautiful fittings. If I had to be picky the mattresses are way to soft for me, but that's a personal preference for a medium/firm mattress. And the bedroom furniture (dressing... More

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
