Wanted to take my wife somewhere special for her 40th birthday and was so glad I chose Swinton Park as the word special certainly describes this place! From the the moment you drive through the gates the wow factor begins and it doesn't stop there. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the member of staff who unpacked our...

My husband was given a day at Swinton Park's cookery school for his birthday. His day learning about Provençal food with Steve Bulmer was fantastic. An experience he hopes to repeat and I hope to join him next time. His birthday gift included an overnight stay, which was a lovely treat. The room was beautiful, with a view of the...

We had a nice big room and a nice big bed, but everything else was disappointing for the price. Emulsioned walls, even the light switch was emulsioned over, no wall paper, no co-ordinating fabrics, small domestic bath with tongue and grooved bath panel. As I say, nice big room, but no luxury at a price of over £200 per night,...

I recently attended a wonderful cooking lesson and decided to make it a stay over too. The sight that greets you upon arrival is lovely and quite impressive, the building and grounds are stunning. Upon arrival we were greeted in a friendly manner, however, the lady at reception was vague, scatty and telling us she was new so didn't know...

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We have an ongoing refurbishment programme which will address many of the points you have raised in coming months. The glass and metal doors you mention are fire doors, where safety has to take precedence over design. I'm sorry to hear that the receptionist on duty at the time of your visit...

We stayed here for a long weekend and booked a package deal to include evening meal as well as breakfast. This is reasonable value than individually booking, the hotel though is at the expensive end of the market. The location is excellent with a deer park adjacent to the hotel as well as parkland. The hotel is simply great -...

Thank you for sharing your comments with us and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We feel that the experience of staying in an authentic, aristocratic castle surrounded by landscaped parkland and a 20,000 acre sporting estate offers great value for money, particularly when the complimentary activities available and home grown produce from our Walled Garden are taken into...

Most of the reviews for this Hotel have been extremely positive, which is largely why we decided to book a 2 night stay, Dinner B&B. The price on offer for a late booking was attractive & certainly, the first impression when you turned in the Drive was 'Wow!'. It really is a stupendous looking building in lovely parkland surroundings. The...

We stayed here for two nights, thinking that this would suit us after reading the web-site. Overall experience fell way below what we were expecting. The rooms (we had a suite) were large but very worn. The TV in the bedroom was old and we failed to make it work on arrival but in fairness, when we reported it the...

I booked Swinton park for my boyfriends birthday for 2 nights, we returned yesterday and we absolutely loved it. We stayed in a Dukes room and it was amazing, huge and so clean and lovely views. I really like how each room has its own design/personality. Also really like the Molton Brown they have in the bathrooms, nice touch. We...
