Had the pleasure of 3 nights here. Staff were fantastic. Our flight was delayed and with a very tired 4 yo on our hands, the gent at check in was more than happy to assist in helping us settle in by carrying up luggage to the rooms well after midnight. Fantastically located, with everything within a 2 min walk including... More

This has the potential to be a really top notch hotel but unfortunately the rooms and upstairs area is looking very tired and with an upgrade can really offer a good experience and stay. The room itself is spacious and clean with a nice comfortable bed but could do with renovating. There were old tiles in the bathroom and decor... More

Ive stayed at the swan a few times and have generally had good stays. The staff are friendly, the hotel is clean, the bar is very good and although the hotel although not luxurious, i find it a pleasant stay and comfortable. One of the best features of the swan is that being an inn it has a good bar... More

Didn't intend staying here but a change in travel plans meant we had to stay somewhere in this area! Huge room with an even bigger bed. Old hotel but lots of character. Clean and comfortable. Nice staff. Good meals and outside tables which was good when it was hot - you have to accept that outside is where the smokers... More

Arrived on Friday 24 for the steam gala and first noticed the outside tables were surrounded by cigarette ends and litter. The room was clean and the bathroom spotless. Just small points were, no means of opening wardrobe door ie no knob or key and no fitting plug for the wash basin meaning the water soon ran out. The general... More

Once again, a lovely stay at the swan hotel. Nice to see the same staff as before.. they even remembered my drink! Breakfast was excellent too, I had an omelette as I'm vegetarian and it was perfect. We stayed in room 6, which is up 2 sets of stairs but is a nice spacious room and at the back of... More

No one on reception when I arrived. Waited awhile then found someone in the bar. The entrance and reception needs some work. The main staircase has dirty carpets. Remnants of food trodden in. Not good. Room was small and hot. Above the bar and overlooking the street. The small double bed was like a brick and all 4 pillows didn't... More

the Old English Inn hotel is comfortable and clean, as one expects from this chain. The restaurant is perfectly adequate and well priced, although we do feel that OEH hotel breakfasts are not as good as they could be, perhaps because most of it, especially the bacon, could have been cooked earlier and heated up. We were also unfortunate to... More

Stayed for one night midweek. Main reception area dirty. Food and visible dust accumulating on the main staircase carpet. Extremely hot and no sense of any ventilation going on. Worst though was the shambolic way the whole breakfast affair was managed. Staff seemed to be in a different place mentally. Lots of forgetting to do the simple things like get... More

We booked to stay 3 nights ( Friday to Sunday) as we were attending a family wedding nearby. Room advanced rate of £115 per night B&B. The room we were allocated was reasonably clean but it was very shabby, stuffy and smelled of air freshener. It was at the front of the hotel and very noisy from the road, even... More
