I honestly can't fault the Swan. We go mainly for a Sunday dinner every few months with the odd evening meal with friends. The staff are great. The interior spot on and the food is consistently excellent. Just hopefully they'll never get complacent and keep up the great service.

We were pretty late booking the twin room for last night - 23 July. Only one twin left, but they noted my plea for a double bed, and when we arrived they had made it up with the beds together and one huge duvet. Very good. Thoughtful. Lovely bed - very comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. Without... More

The Swan is a charming town centre hotel with lots of history. Our room was compact but comfortable. The bed was of a good quality, the shower decent (plenty of warm water flow) and the breakfast was superb. On the subject of breakfast, the menu offered loads of choice which was supplemented by a buffet table of juices, cereals, croissants... More

Well what can I say, it was all going wrong from the point that a staff member chased me to announce in front of everybody that my card had been declined. Already annoyed to have been embarrassed in that way. (It was later accepted that there were problems with the card machines and not in fact my card!) Then the... More

Needed a bed for the night & this establishment seemed well sited, I was pleased with location & the helpful approach of staff; parking is a little snug, but, reception helped out immediately to find a space. They also took care of every request efficiently & offered advice to help navigate the local area which saved me time & effort.... More

Very friendly staff, lots of them, on a busy Friday night. Had a nice atmosphere. Our room was a decent size and up to date ( certainly didn't need redecorating) Didn't have dinner there but the breakfast was good (and a substantial English cooked) Would book again in similar circumstances. Niggles....10.5 tog duvet on a hot night PS. Not easy... More

Stayed as part of a group for a friend's wedding close by at Sandon Hall. Location was very good I've to say. Otherwise rooms look a bit dated and requires some updating, but at least they were clean. Not had the opportunity to try the food there, but had drinks at the bar post-wedding ceremony which were ok. Parking available... More

High end mid range. Very well laid out, nice bars and seating, options to eat from a tip top Restraunt to gastro pub grub. Staff friendly. We stayed overnight - comfortable. A first class breakfast menu which should please all and it really was a delight. Will call again when looking for an overnight just off the M6.

We stayed here as we were at a wedding in sandon. We had other options of hotels but chose the swan as it looked very pretty and of a higher standard and for that we were prepared to pay a bit more. Unfortunately our expectation of our bedroom versus the price we paid were not met. In hindsight we should... More
