What a stunning hotel this is. Lovely location by the river. The restaurant is stunning. Shame they had run out of Sunday roasts by 2pm . The food we ordered was lunch very nice. The one weird thing was that 2 young guys were setting up dj equipment in the restaurant at lunch time. Then they started playing loud house... More

Stayed at the hotel as a result of a birthday 'Mr & Mrs voucher'. The first impressions of the hotel is the lovely sitting area out front next to a river. Then the large print wallpaper hits you as you step inside reception - wow that is bold! I had a super back/shoulder massage in the Spa and I would... More

As 2 couples we had a brilliant Sunday lunch in a beautiful setting on the river. Not overly keen on the pink decor but the food was brilliant and in particular the Baileys cheesecake which was one of the best desserts I've probably ever had. The only downside was after having been given the dessert menu's and failing to grab... More

The hotel is situated at the southern end of lake Windermere. It it easily accessed from the M6. The hotel is top quality for a relaxing break with friendly attentive staff. Lovely food is available together with a good selection of beers and wines. The bedrooms are light and airy. I would recommend it to all travellers

I had high expectations for The Swan: the pictures looked great and we were excited for a restful stay in a sweet English hotel. I even willingly paid the extra 10 pounds per night to have twin beds instead of one king. However, this place was too family-centric for us. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have three or four...

Lovely hotel. It is in a great location on the bank of a river / lake. Very nicely decorated. The staff without exception were excellent. The bed room was large. Very well appointed with a large comfortable bed. Very quiet. The building is lovely throughout. The food in the restaurant was also excellent. A couple of things let down what... 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
