Called in for a coffee, yah free fudge not a biscuit. Very clean bar area. Friendly staff. Good selection on the menu and reasonable prices, pleasant surprise. Pleasing to see you can have a sandwich and soup without breaking the bank.

Used The Swan as a business meeting location. Staff helpful, wifi was ok but not very fast. Plenty of parking - free as using facilities, food was good for price and plenty of it. Only thing is they need decaf coffee in meeting room. Overall good place to meet, would use again.

This is a lovely venue - and there are a number of places to sit. Comfortable chairs, or at the bar, or on a stool - and then there's the restaurant too. Overall, really quite pleasing. Going into the restaurant, the menu is good, and the prices are fine. Sadly though, the food isn't freshly cooked. It's mainly microwaved. I... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at The Swan. The room was comfortable and adequate, but as usual with Old English Hotels the bed linen was pristine! Car parking is well organised and just out the back of the hotel. The restaurant menu very good, service good in the evenings but our first breakfast left a lot... More

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a smile, always makes a difference. Our room was up with the gods, full of character amongst the eaves, powerful shower comfortable bed and lots of wardrobe space. Breakfast was excellent lots of choice and nicely cooked, I must say we took the advise given by staff and came down early... More

What a great choice! Fantastic food and fantastic reception of our School's literary tour group. Michele at the front desk was particularly outstanding. Comfortable in every way; we loved it. Highly recommended and thank you.

I only stayed one night but was very happy. I was very surprised to find that my room was huge, with a 4 poster bed! The hotel in general is well maintained with many original features. I ate at the hotel for convenience and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, But what was most impressive was the... More

Great authentic Inn. The rooms are enormous, spotlessly clean and have lots of storage space. Very good beds. We stayed for 2 nights, we had a double, twin and a single room for the family. All were very good. Breakfast was superb. The staff work very hard. They do tend to leave the crockery on finished tables as they are... More

Cautiously booked here after reading some of the reviews and we're very glad we did! The hotel is lovely, Michelle on reception could not have been more pleasant and the breakfast was delicious. The floorboards were indeed very creaky but its a very old building and we only heard our own floorboards creaking, no one else's. All areas very clean,... More

This place was wonderful. The front desk was very kind and welcoming. The room was terrific. Plenty of space. The restaurant was great also. The waitress was very friendly. When checking out the front desk person was very helpful and held our bags for us while we did some exploring. I will stay here again.
