4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent food, wonderful Spa treatment (massage) eclectic interior decor which combined with the fast friendly service to create a wonderful and special experience. One of the better equipped hotel gym facilities I have come across in my travels and the pool, sauna and steam room are more than adequate to help relax and chill.

Lovely hotel, excellent staff, pretty location. We did have a couple of small issues the bath plughole was broken and the room was very hot as the air con wasn't working properly, we were given an electric fan. This didn't spoil our stay but for the price of the accommodation it was a little disappointing.

Excellent location and excellent staff. We felt very welcome and were very well looked after. The decor is very interesting especially on the ground floor - lots of colours have been used both in the wallpapers and the furnishings. The bedrooms are clean and well decorated with lovely outlooks at the fron over the river.

It's a lovely hotel in a great location. One thing to be aware of is if you're booking from Mr&Mrs Smith website, it says 15 mins from Oxenholme train station but it's actually 35/40 mins and £45 in a taxi - £90 both ways was a little unexpected. Having said that the spa, rooms and service are very good. Had... More

We stayed at the swan following a recommendation and we were not disappointed. The room was excellent and very clean, the spa treatments good and the breakfasts first class. My only gripe was the menu for lunch/dinner. There is a waitress service part of the restaurant and a self serve part but both with the same menu. And I have... More

Just recently returned from a 2 night stay here. The decor all around the hotel was beautiful. Rooms were kept clean and the beds are so comfortable. The location of the hotel is right on the river front and it's the perfect setting for an evening drink. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Lake District.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend that you try it out. Very bold contemporary and quirky decor is not to everyone's taste but I'm sure the majority like it; I did. Lovely setting on the river bank is great for a relaxing drink or two. My only criticism would be the table waiting skills of some of the... More

Great boutique hotel in Newby Bridge! Hotel is in a beautiful location just by the bridge and overlooking the Leven river and this is probably one the best hotel in Lake District that's has a nice river view. Stayed in the Woodsworth and Rushkin Suites. The rooms were spacious and luxuriously furnished and had a nice view of the river.... More

We visited with fiends for lunch. The hotel has been refurbished after recent flooding, and his been done beautifully. We had lunch in the bar, the food was excellent and the portions large. Not the cheapest place for lunch, but probably worth the wee bit extra for the surroundings.
