We booked our room only hours before arriving, and the previous owners had only just passed the information on when we turned up to find the new owners in rubber gloves, scouring the place out, ready for the summer season. In spite of this, we received a warm (apologetic) welcome and a comfortable en-suite room had been prepared for us,... More

We have just returned from a 2-night stay here. This is an Inn and a tea room, and closes to the general public at 5, but remains open for food and drink to residents. I saw a comment that the place is "confused". I can certainly see what they meant by it because there is so much going on and... More

We've just returned home from two nights at The Swan. We were met by the lovely Lynne, proper tea, an open fire and Jezabel the cat - great welcome. Lynne kindly gave us the four poster room even though we were there on a discounted Go Groupie deal. Really appreciated the thoughtful personal touches. Bed really comfy and would definitely... More

Staying in the area for the weekend and spent a day exploring the local area. Arrived in Kington at lunch time and looked for a pub for lunch. Saw The Swan Inn and found that they were dog friendly so went in. Initially was quite confused with fairy lights, mixture of furniture and tablecloths. Was it a pub, was it... More

We only stopped by for lunch this time. It was delicious home grown veg and more than we could eat (and we are a hungry lot). The tea room end is pretty and the bar end still looks like a proper bar. Thanks
