From beginning to end our stay was marvellous. The room was stunning looking out in the deer and the birds of prey. The food was absolutely fabulous with service to match. Nothing was too much trouble. After dinner drinks in the drawing room or an afternoon walk in the grounds, Forget your troubles and escape.

We recently had a wonderful 3 night stay at Swinton Park. We had one room with bathroom overlooking a courtyard and the new spa under construction (no contruction noise during our stay). Our teenage children were in another room with bathroom which overlooked the front gardens, clock tower and gardens. We were all very comfortable with plenty of room and... More

We visited recently hoping for a cup of tea and something to eat. After making the request at the front desk we were shown into a sitting room. I assumed, incorrectly as it turned out that the tea was on its way. After about half an hour we were getting pressed for time so decided to leave. On passing the... More

We are regular visitors to Swinton Park and are big fans. Dispite the grandur of the place a homely feel is offered. The lounge areas are comfortably and well furnished to offer intimate or group parties. Breakfast is always a treat with its sorbet and champagne. We had the taster menu for dinner and found it lovely. We have stayed... More

We've just come back from a one-night stay at Swinton Park. We've always wanted to go and my husband particularly wanted to go to the cookery school. So I booked it as a surprise. My hubby did a full day Southern Italian cookery course but in reality it started at 10.45am and finished at about 1.30pm then we had lunch... More

We have just returned from a superb visit to Swinton Park, the first time we have been back since getting married there in Dec 2014. We were not disappointed! We had a fabulous walk through the grounds which were far more extensive that we'd realised! There is even a boat to a private island which you can book by arrangement!... More

Thanks Lucinda, so glad you had another memorable stay at Swinton Park. I will be sure to pass your personal thanks to Jonah.

Forever I have wanted to stay in a castle so for my anniversary and birthday my husband booked Swinton Park. I had watched their promotional video so was really excited. The setting is amazing and the outside of the hotel is grand. Inside tells a different story. I found it dirty and shabby. Not once did we see a cleaner... More
