We spent 5 days at the White Swan Inn. Yes the place is old and in some ways--none critical- shows it age, but it is very convenient and clean and has a helpful and friendly staff. Our room was homey, quiet (in the back of the property) and quite large. The downstairs "common rooms" are wonderful: coffee, tea etc were available all day--very welcome additions to the excellent cookies which appeared each afternoon in the front foyer's cookie jar. These rooms- with their comfortable chairs, couches and decor - encouraged lingering--especially during the early evening "happy hour" when wine, munchies and pastry are laid out. We spent several evenings chatting with other guests during this time: a great way to meet interesting people from all over and to exchange ideas about things to do, restaurants to visit etc... A good breakfast (fruit, hot dishes, pastries, hot and cold cereals) was served each morning. The only negative (not the Inn's fault): I had essentially no signal from Verizon while I was on the property. Overall--given its location and the amenities provided, the White Swan Inn is a tremendous value. If you don't mind a squeaky floor here or there and other such signs of age, one can't go wrong. Highly recommend.
