“Fabulous stay at Swan Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Had a one night stay at Swan Hotel to attend a family celebration at another venue. What a fantastic place this is, very comfortable large rooms, lovely bar snacks and the breakfast was incredible. The staff were very friendly, also loved the 'adopt a Teddy' idea and I did adopt the Teddy! Can fully recommend a stay here.

When you work away a lot, a good hotel can make all the difference. I stayed at the Swan for several days each week for ~5 months. The deluxe rooms are really large and pleasant. The restaurant (rarely for a hotel) is excellent (particularly the desert menu) and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It's located centrally and there are plenty of other good restaurants within walking distance.
The only downfall is the lack of a gym and a loyalty scheme you would get at (larger) chain hotels, but that's business travelers for you!

Room Tip: First floor rooms above the kitchen are noisy.

The room was clean, tidy, very comfortable and spacious, although the bathroom was a little small. The staff were very helpful and very pleasant. Breakfast was plenty full and tasty. Would highly recommend!!

A very busy hotel in the high street and during the day attract lots of shoppers for coffee, however as the shops close it leaves mainly residents in the hotel but it is still full and a good atmosphere. If you wish to eat in the restaurant be sure to book as it gets very busy but is worth it. The food is lovely, service is excellent and the setting very modern.

This hotel was rightly busy & buzzing. There's something for everyone - bars, beer gardens, coffee shops & great dining.

The staff are efficient, well trained & friendly. The rooms are clean & comfortable. The restaurant is excellent for both dinner & breakfast. You'll be hard pressed to find a better hotel breakfast to start your day.

I will certainly be going back.

Just back from an overnight stay. Our room was on the first floor, clean with a comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom. We also, as mentioned in an earlier review could hear music and people talking very loudly until about midnight. The only other small, no pun intended disappointment was the hanging space. A small cupboard.
The breakfast was very, very good. All the staff we met from reception to the restaurant staff were first class.
There is a small free car park available to guests and those dining at the hotel. Situation is perfect, in the middle of town.
Overall, very good.

I recently stayed at this hotel on a business trip. I was very impressed with the reception, bar service and resturant service. Friendly and attentive staff. The food in the resturant was excellent, well presented and good value. Rooms were clean and well appointed. This is a hotel that will be going in my list of business locations to stay at in the future
