Great service, great location, very comfortable and relaxing. Set in beautiful grounds. When the spa is complete it will be the perfect country house hotel.....just hope it doesnt get too corporate :-)

This is probably the best place we have ever stayed. The public rooms are gorgeous, and our room was absolutely beautiful with amazing views. At night we were amazed at the quiet except for the sounds of the native animals. Our room was classic and beautiful, and the bathroom was one of the most spacious and modern we have had.... More

The hotel like many reviews stated is beautiful. And the food is great too. However, it was not very child friendly. The dinning areas are awkward with a toddler, lunch is served in the bar .. A small room with a few tables making the whole vibe a not so friendly one. The breakfast area is okay.. Could have been... More

At this end of the market it's the seemless service and consistent delivery which makes all the difference. Having a beautiful venue with a clearly talented chef and extremely friendly staff all counts for nothing when the delivery and management is frankly pretty amateurish. Not in a Basil Fawlty chaotic way, actually in a more damaging drip, drip, drip of... More

We have stayed before and visited for lunch several times. The relaxed atmosphere has been retained but the service is not as sharp as it should be at this price point. The staff were mostly very pleasant but some lacking in professionalism. Hearing the staff at the desk discussing a failure to lock the concierges safe a typical example. Lack... More

Myself and my partner came here for one night on the "foodie celebration". First and foremost - this hotel is not cheap, you're not going to feel like you're getting a bargain. Everything else is great! The room we stayed in was simply lovely. Comfortable with traditional furniture and fittings in keeping with the style of the hotel The wet... More

This is not a cheap hotel, in fact it is quite expensive but worth every penny. The house and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. It is set in a stately home and that is part of the pleasure. One can sit in the drawing room ( or the morning room, the library, the hall, the dining room or the... More

We had afternoon tea here. The food and tea was lovely, the lady serving us was excellent and attentive but we were also served by a young man whose trousers were falling down! Not a nice sight! Why was he allowed to serve in that state? The other reason that I marked our experience down was the crockery: I really... More

We have stayed at Swinton Park a number of times in the past but stopped going because the prices seemed to increase very steeply however we decided to give it another go. There is still no real spa facilities to speak of so the prices are still on the high side when compared to other hotels with swimming pools etc... More
