The hotel is in a great position right in the middle of Alnwick. We were checked in by a very friendly receptionist. My husband and I were given The Alnwick Suite complete with four poster bed but felt duty bound to let our American travelling companions have it and they were delighted. Our room was small but very comfortable. We... More

Noisy cars shouting constant loud street noise and music blaring unable to get any sleep in a room that is impossible to walk round the bed. Unbelievable that I paid £85 upfront 6 months in advance with a request for a room at the back which was ignored. I would never stay here again. Decor tired but not as tired... More

This 300 year old former coaching inn has undergone many changes over the years but still retains that special atmosphere of a country hotel. We stayed for five days and found all the staff very friendly and helpful and willing to go the extra mile to please the guests. We had breakfast and dinner in the magnificent Olympic restaurant the... More

Overall our stay at this hotel was OK but for nearly £130 per night it was expensive for what we received. One arrival we were allocated a very small twin room with a room literally backing on to the function suite with a wedding party in full flow. There were just a few feet from the room window and the... More

Had a lovely Sunday lunch of beef, that was cooked to perfection with roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables, served in the bistro. The staff as always were so pleasant. Following this we went to the wedding fayre as my daughter and fiance are to be married in 2017, at the swan. I was pleasantly surprised as everything you could possibly... More

Our visit got off to a good start with a friendly welcome from the reception staff. The room ( second floor ) was quite comfortable although it has to be said that the bathroom could do with a makeover and the view out was onto the main street and not particularly interesting. Lunch in the bistro was rather disappointing (... More

Seldom do I find myself giving negative reviews and I try to see the best wherever I go but other than nice hot water and its location, there is little good I can say about this hotel. We paid around £150 for one nights stay and it was worth about half of that. The room was basic and cheaply decorated.... More

Hotel located in centre of Alnwick with safe car parking. Cheerful and helpful staff at reception. Comfortable room though not much outlook. Excellent meals and service both in the main restaurant and in the bistro. Good value in both.All staff most obliging, even printed our boarding passes for our onward flight. Only snag-the main, very old hotel is-a 3 storey... More

Have stayed at the white swan every visit, for the past 9 years. Used to visit other hotels in Stratford, but the white swan is easily best . Recently, they have had millions spent on refurbishment , and must say it is such a pleasure to stay there on my visits. Thank you the White swan staff and management ,... More
