After travelling 4 hours to the Black Swan we were amazed that we were not welcome to eat in the restaurant as we were with our 4 year old. We went there to test the hotel for a party of 10. We were offered a 'takeaway' as an alternative. It was dreadful and served after the 'chef' finished his fag...

We decided to have a few days away and purchased a wowcher for a break at the Black Swan. We had to go Sunday to Friday but that was fine for us. The area was a small little village and very nice. The Black Swan itself was a small public house with a restaurant at the back of it. We...

We have just returned from a last minute overnight stay which we booked online through Booking.com. We had a delicious evening meal with desserts and enjoyed a few drinks before going to our room, which was as if it had never been used before. The quality of finish and furnishings were lovely and we had a view out over the...

Great location and wonderful views. Rooms are ok, if a bit dated. Food was good, bit expensive, but nice. Breakfast not so hot, nicely presented but not much of it. Staff were really nice except for one, assume he was the owner, grumpy and honestly seemed to be p##sed off at people being there, unless you are a local. Spend...

Large ground floor room, loads of space, plenty storage. Hospitality...

Booked a return visit following an email about the changes that had been made, offering a special price and the opportunity to see the changes. The visit did not start well. The welcome on arrival "We are closed, check is at 3. Bar opens at 3, no hello etc" Like saying "we have got your money come back when we...

We stayed here for two nights and had an excellent time. On arrival we were shown to our room and given a small bottle of prosecco.....a very welcome gesture! The huge room also had a huge bed (super king size) with lovely sheets, a wardrobe, drawers and coffee table and chairs. Bathroom had a shower over the bath, nice white...
