Hotel is the venue for a 3 day event. Very well run, with hotel pulling out the stops to ensure it does. communal areas great, bedroom was slightly shabby but fine. Very hot weekend, but bedroom windows would only open a couple of inches. Lots of parking. Great breakfasts. very central location.

I spent time at this hotel over the weekend at the Crime Writing Festival. I didn't stay in the hotel so can't comment on the bedrooms. What I can say is that the ballroom could get extremely, unpleasantly warm and there was not enough ventilation or air con to make it comfortable. We often found the bar to be very... More

Having stayed a couple of times at the Old Swan, I was looking forward to attending the Crime Festival after not being able to attend before. The hotel was bustling with people and there was a drinks tent, book shop and a burger stand outside the hotel with a tented area and extra seating. The hotel itself was far too... More

Another relaxing stay - 2nd time we have been upgraded there. Room lovely as usual. Love this hotel old fashioned charm but with all mod cons. Ideally situated in harrogate only 5mins walk to town. Food fantastic and plenty of choice. Very helpful staff. Looking forward to returning soon.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Old Swan. It was our first visit to Harrogate and added to a very pleasant experience. The hotel is ideally placed for all the attractions and eateries. Our room was small, with a shower. The toiletries and tea tray were adequate, although I would have expected a shower cap... More

Stayed here for two nights on a B&B and dinner basis. We had an enjoyable stay and are pleased we chose to stay here. The hotel has plenty of the original features which gives it plenty of character. Some of the public areas and corridors could do with repainting and a bit of freshening up. Location: Great location, just a... More

Stayed there 3 nights as a part of a wedding party. A good solid location in a very nice town, proud of its Agatha Christie history. Will definitely be back as a regular tourist before two long. Excellent location for a wedding celebration

Arrived on Saturday 9th July for a 2 night stay. The weather was awful and the hotel reception/lounge was full to bursting as they had 2 wedding parties on the go! I didn't find the reception very welcoming but appreciate it was very busy. We were early and room wasn't ready and was told to return in about an hour... More
