This is the second time I have stayed in The Swan; and if anything this visit was even better than last time. The hotel is just as clean and comfortable as it always was; and the staff just as warm and welcoming. It's a subtle thing, but it felt like it was just a bit more up-market, and that can't... More

The Swan serves a very good bar lunch. A busy place round noon, but very cosy too. The Tuna sandwich was superb, the burger with bacon was very good too. Great place to have an afternoon tea. Nice garden in the back

We booked a one night stay and were given room 302. We had driven down from Scotland and were tired and looking to relax, shower and have dinner. We could not get any hot water out of the shower after running it for 10 mins, and then it suddenly ran boiling hot. It then proved impossible to obtain a water... More

We stayed for the seven days of the second week of September 2016 and had a really wonderful time. It is a typical old coaching inn that attracts many of the locals for meals and drinks throughout the day. It buzzes with life and it is delightful to be there. We dined in on six nights because the restaurant was... More

Parking available: very helpful. You need to put a card in your car, that the hotel provides to you.To exit, you need a token from the reception. The breakfast is delicious. You can order scrabbled eggs or a huge omellete with tomato, mushrooms, cheese and ham, all included in the room Price.

A lovely hotel with lots of character and very centrally located. We were a family of 4 in a family room, which was OK although a little cramped. We didn't spend much time in the room so it was OK. Breakfast was very nice and the brasserie was also very good. We had a lovely meal and the children's meal... More
