Fantastic hotel with great staff, couldn't fault our experience. The hotel was very busy with it being a weekend but all the staff were on point and made everyone more than welcome. Beautiful rooms in a stunning hotel in a nice setting

Excellent stay for family over holiday weekend. We enjoyed all the facilities and found the restaurant and bar staff really helpful even though the hotel was extremely busy. The rooms were beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable.

We had a super relaxing Bank Holiday weekend in the new Hedgehog nest. As a self catering option the nest works really well, and with The Swan Hotel facilities only a boardwalk away, all we needed was at hand. We had a sleepless night on day 1, as the green lights throughout the Hedgehog nest cast an eerie shadow throughout... More

Called in here for tea after a busy day walking. It was a sunny evening and as such sitting outside next to the river was beautiful. It was very busy and we were concerned at a probable wait for food. However it was really quick - they are set up very well to handle all the visitors! The menu isn't... More

After a walk around Grange on the Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend decided to try lunch but to our amazement quite a few restaurants were closed so we headed for the Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge. We've been for coffee before but this time we decided to have sandwiches for Lunch and they did not disappoint. We sat out... More

Visited as part of a private party. Plenty of parking at the rear of the hotel. The food and service we received was excellent throughout our visit. All the staff provided service with a smile and we will visit again. Thank you.

Took a two night stay here on business. The setting is lovely, tranquil with beautiful surroundings. I walked the nature trail in early evening and followed it with a drink and dinner outdoors right by the river. Slightly disappointing was that, while the food was ok, it wasn't amazing. There is a wide choice for breakfast and both mornings this... More

Just a perfect spot for lunch by the river. We had a sandwich and shandy as we were eating with friends later. the sandwich was stuffed with tasty mature cheddar and a tangy chilli jam chutney. Definitely a place to return to for a meal/ week-end break. Lovely walking area and close to the Windermere ferry. Pristine toilets, good wifi... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the picturesque River Leven at the southern tip of Lake Windermere, this 17th-century coaching inn is full of character and charm, but also offers well-equipped rooms, first-class leisure facilities and a fabulous ESPA spa. Enjoy the cosy, traditional lounges with roaring log fires, sample a unique local ale and enjoy a first-class dinner from the extensive hotel menu. The chef makes a point of finding the very best natural ingredients from local sources. If you're planning on a family trip, you'll find that The Swan has excellent facilities for children. Whether it's books and toys available in the library, a special restaurant menu or the complimentary milk and cookies served up at bedtime, younger guests are well looked after. Of course, there are many opportunities for them to play too - both in the hotel's 14 acres and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Whatever the reason for your trip, business or pleasure, you can be sure of the warmest of welcomes and will have the perfect base for exploring the wonderful beauty of the Lake District. ... more   less
