Stayed one night in Feb 17 at the Old Swan in Harrogate on a special £110 deal for two. It’s a large old building; ‘faded grandeur’ best describes it. The bedroom was big, bed comfy, lots of hot water from the bath shower and the whole hotel was very clean. Afternoon cream tea was pleasant, the three-course dinner was a...

We booked our break via Superbreak and got an excellent deal inclusive of rail travel and half board for a 2 night stay. The hotel is approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the train station. On arrival (we were early) our room was ready which was a bonus. The hotel is charming and was spotlessly clean during our visit. Our room...

Got a bargain on Groupon for this hotel. It is a lovely hotel and a 5 minute walk into Harrogate. The room was clean (a biggie for me!!) but rather small. But was perfect for our flying visit. Staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was out of this world :-)

Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, Only a slight covering of snow while we were here but the roaring fire really is welcoming. As is the warm welcome we received at reception. The Old Swan is a grand old building, beautiful high ceilings surrounded by intricate plaster cornices - fantastic ! Our room was...

Ideal location just 5 mins walk into Harrogate centre. We found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We booked a special deal with Superbreak, bed breakfast and evening meal with a afternoon cream tea, exceptional value for money. Although there was only one vegetarian option for the main evening meal I was told they could sort something...

Stayed here on a Friday evening for a work function and experienced the party package and a nights stay at the hotel. It looks impressive from the outside and lovely when all lit up. The car park is a good 200 metre walk down or up, depending which way you go, on a rather slippery pathway. Not ideal when you...

Following a particularly bad experience at the Old Swan Hotel in December, I wrote directly to the Operations Manager, Mr Donkin, to lodge a formal complaint. We swapped a couple of e-mails and it was quite apparent from the responses that Mr Donkin did not believe my story or was interested in satisfying a party who spent over £350 on...

Old Swan hotel Harrogate is ideally situated for visiting the lovely town of Harrogate. The room we had was spacious, with king sized bed. The room had good sized TV, tea/coffee facilities, including hot chocolate and various reasons. Bottled water re-stocked daily. Very large bathroom with complimentary toiletries, thick lush towels. Everywhere warm, clean and tidy. Our deal included breakfast...

Lovely friendly helpful staff. clean spacious room with an outdated but powerful shower over a tin bath. Quiet room slept well. But whole hotel just needs a bit of revamping as very tired in places but I would recommend as is very convenient for town centre and all local amenities.
