Firstly about the comments previously mentioned about decor: we thought it is in keeping with the hotel style/age and we... More

We had been to the hotel once before to look around for our wedding and my fiance suggested going for mothers day for a 3 course meal as a treat. The meal itself was amazing, i had the pork with some beautiful cooked veg and the children... More

We booked The White Swan to eat in The Olympic Suite, as friends had seen this on The Great British Rail Journeys programme. Unfortunately my friend, who was travelling from Turkey, could only confirm our rooms not the restaurant booking? He was told that they didn't always open the olympic suite which was the main dining room. It was all... More

Just walked past the hotel and decided to try for Sunday lunch...not hopeful because we had not made a booking. However, we were one of two couples...the other having afternoon tea(!!) which looked fantastic. Our lunch was great, not the usual carvery but still very substantial. Excellent quality and excellent service from an attentive young waitress. The hotel has had... More

We stayed 3 nights on a Half Board basis and received wonderful treatment from all members of staff especially the Belgian F & B Manager however there cannot be any excuse for having the Heating off during the day or having no hot water in Room 104. The location is perfect,the food is very good but the Olympic Suite was... More

We chose the White Swan on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area. As it was March we took advantage of the Winter Warmer deal. We upgraded to a superior room with chocs water and dressing gowns. On arrival and the next day both receptionists were really friendly and helpful. We hadn't been left our chocs, water... More

Stayed at the White Swan for a weekend break to attend a wedding. From the start, the staff were efficient and friendly and the room we were given (101) at the front of the building was large, comfortable and well appointed. The Olympic suite is superb with wooden wall panels and windows from Titanic's lesser known sister ship together with... More

I stayed at the White Swan for 4 nights during February while on business in the area. The reception and bar staff were all friendly and helpful (unlike chef). I had a room overlooking the main road, it was spacious and the bed comfortable. Unfortunately the towels in the bathroom were all threadbare and had holes in! Something I have... More
