This should have been a wonderful stay. The hotel is beautiful but the room are more like motel rooms - ours was tiny and dark. We were offered two alternatives by a very friendly and helpful manager but one was the same and the other (a family room) he warned would be very noisy as it was bank holiday. The... More

At the time of booking, I inquired about... More

My partner and I have just returned from a visit to Alnwick which we made just to visit the White Swan hotel. We are big Titanic enthusiasts and we work in Titanic tourism, so we came to see all of the original pieces from Titanic's sister Olympic. All I can say is we were not disappointed. The Olympic Suite took... More

Stayed here one night to visit Alnwick Castle next day. From start to finish the staff in this hotel were the friendliest and most helpful we have met in a long time and deserve a special mention. The receptionists couldn't have been more helpful, providing local information and maps and the restaurant staff were friendly, helpful and efficient and happily... More

We booked 2 double bedrooms and one twin for accommodation during a family wedding. I had a sleepless night due to worry as one of our guests - My gran - was admitted to hospital after collapsing during the wedding. (She was unable to stay overnight in the twin room.) My son was the other occupant of the twin room.... More

The staff were good, the food was good but our room 208 was not brilliant, an attic room, quite basic, very small round window, had to unhook curtain to close it, no pictures or photos on walls, no headboards on beds, one very small piece of soap for both basin & shower, small shampoo but no conditioner & no facecloths....

The White Swan Hotel enjoys a fantastic location in a wonderful part of the world; and it could be a great property providing that enough capital was invested in hardware and management up-skilling. The staff, without exception, are extremely pleasant and professional to customers; their approach to customer service simply can’t be faulted. That said, friendliness only goes some way... More

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your feedback. WiFi has never been an issue at this hotel, quite the opposite infact so there may have indeed been contributing factors.
