My partner and I spent a wonderful week here in June this year. The delay in writing this review has arisen purely because I was taken seriously ill just a couple of weeks after our return home. Without any doubt this is the best hotel we have stayed in. The staff are so attentive, the food is amazing (good to...

My husband and I spent one night at Swinton Park in the Knaresborough (Barons) room - it was spacious, beautifully decorated and had large windows with superb views over the grounds and the lake, so much so that it seemed a shame to leave the room to explore further! We used the spa facilities, which we booked in advance and...

Nothing is too much effort from the staff. The moment we arrived we knew we were in for a treat. This is a wonderful Victorian castle close to Masham in North Yorkshire. Dinner was truly excellent with great wines. Our bedroom was very large with a great view over the park. Breakfast was memorable and then a long walk around...

On the evening we went to the deer lodge for an outdoor BBQ. Again plenty of food excellently prepared and what fun walking back to the hotel in the dark...

My wife and I selected Swinton Park based on the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Our 4 night stay was a great success starting with the friendly advice regarding our choice of room when we spoke to the Receptionist and even enlisting the help Tom Lewis, the General Manager, in enabling my wife's best friends to...

My husband and I treated ourselves to a mid-week two night break at Swinton Park and there is much about it that's wonderful. It's a stunning building with beautiful grounds including grazing deer and staying there feels like getting to overnight in a National Trust stately home. The staff we encountered were, without exception, absolutely delightful. We used the private...

My husband and I spent last night at Swinton Park and from the first impression - on driving through the magnificent entrance past the deer park - to check out this morning, we have only the best things to say about the hotel. We stay at some of the best hotels in the world but it is very rare that...

I organised a surprise afternoon tea party for my mother-in-law's birthday and could not have been more pleased to find Swinton Park. I found it through Tripadviser and the internet but what a find. The team organised everything over the phone with me and when I arrived the room looked wonderful. The staff on the day could not have been...

My husband and I were lucky enough to have our wedding here in 2013. It really is an amazing venue and we have a fantastic time every time we visit. We're already looking forwards to the next visit. They do very good Sunday dinners so I'd definitely recommend having lunch and then a walk around their beautiful grounds x
