“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

We recently stayed at The Swan for a wedding and I was a little dubious about not staying in a proper fancy hotel; however, it was absolutely fantastic!

We stayed in the Family Room, although there were just the two of us. It was MASSIVE with two king sized beds pushed together, a huge leather sofa and literally the biggest TV I have ever seen. I was in heaven! The beds were comfortable, the rooms were well decorated so they were modern but still had character and the shower was hot with great water pressure.

We also had breakfast and dinner in the hotel and the food was of an incredibly high standard (and as a professional restaurant reviewer by trade, I should know!). It was also very well priced, both in terms of the rooms and the food.

The service was also very good. My partner was the best man at the wedding and had forgotten his speech. I called down to ask if they could print it off for me and within 10 minutes they had printed it off, put it into a nice envelope and hand-delivered it to my room.

This hotel is of a standard of some of the 5 star hotels we have visited. We have very high standards and couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: The family room for a couple may sound extravagant but it's really worth it for the extra space.

We had lunch for five adults on Saturday 9th March 2013. Nice ambience and friendly staff. We had a variety of starters, main courses, and desserts. The service was good, and the food was delicious; the desserts were exceptional! Thank you!

We were driving home from visiting our family in Ash and were later than we had anticipated so decided to stop for a meal. We passed several places and just by chance stopped here. It was a really foul night, cold and wet. When we entered the pub there was a very welcoming open fire burning. We were quickly seated and brought menus. we ordered a bottle of wine and were bought water as a matter of course. The menu was varied and we ordered starters and main courses. I had goats cheese mouse with beetroot and it was delicious. My husband had terrine with soda bread. We both ordered pork chops for our mains. Both of our meals were delicious, the pork being very tender and moist which can be a challenge with pork. I had treacle tart with clotted cream for dessert and my husband chocolate bread and butter pudding, they were also excellent. The atmosphere in the pub was very good and the staff very attentive. We had a very good meal and will certainly be stopping again as we travel this route several times a month.

The interiors are really wonderful both in the public areas and our room. Fresh flowers artfully arranged in the entrance, beautiful mirrors, restful colours, fire places with blazing fires - it couldn't be more welcoming visually Our room was also tastefully decorated, immaculately clean and luxuriously comfortable. The only negative comment I can make is that there is some traffic noise as the inn is close to the main road but during most of the night the traffic was light but it did begin again rather early.

I was most impressed with the food. The menu was interesting and every thing we ate was absolutely delicious. Somehow I didn't expect to find such great food in a country inn. The wine list is good and well chosen plus they add little extras that are so nice such as an Italian biscuit on the saucer with your coffee.

I would recommend this as a delightful weekend get-away or a stop over on your journey to the south coast.

Room Tip: If traffic noise bothers you ask for a room at the back.

Having had a enjoyable dinner on our way home before we thought it would be nice to take up the special offer of an Bed Breakfast and a evening meal for £125.00, we were made most welcome from the minute we arrived and shown to our room which was at the back of the Inn which meant we were not disturbed by any traffic noise, the room itself is decorated to a high standard and we found it very relaxing.
The Dinner choice was a little limited as it was a Sunday there was two roasts on the menu, but everything was cooked and prepared to a high standard and was delicious, we were the only guests staying overnight for breakfast even so the choice made ready for us in the morning was excellent, I would have no hesitation in giving the Swan Inn 5 *****

Room Tip: Request Room at the back of the property if you are a light sleeper

We arrived at approximately 1:30 and were shown a table. After perusing the menu and ordering we felt quite cold. Admittedly, it was one of the first days of autumn.

However my companion noted that there was a lady with a coat on in the other dining area and he therefore asked the lady owner if she could do something about the situation. She was not helpful nor interested indicating that the people sitting under the ceiling heater would then suffer. (Why then, we wondered, place the heater in such a way?) My companion was quite insistent because the lady seemed surly and determined to not accommodate us.

Finally she left and, without having conceded that it was indeed cold, she lit the small fire nearby. At that point the people at the table next to us sighed in relief saying that they, too, - with 3 small children - had been feeling the cold and damp.

The service was rather slow and people who came in about 15 minutes after us were served before us. The young German waitress was helpful but not very efficient. On the other hand, perhaps the delay came from the kitchen. We had to remind them of our order.

When the bill came, we were charged for 2 glasses of wine when we had specifically ordered only one to be shared between us albeit in 2 glasses. The mistake was rectified but without grace or goodwill, indeed more of a scowl from the lady owner.

On the whole, the experience was not good despite the fact that the food was fresh and well prepared.

The lack of customer care and general unfriendliness mean that we will not be going back!

Thank you for your comments which I would like to respond to.

Feeling the cold: I realise you were cold when you arrived as were the people you mentioned with the children but once acclimatised, coats and scarves were relinquished.

The wood burning stove was lit on one side of the bar and the people sitting under the over-head heating unit, who found the ambient temperature perfectly comfortable, did not want the unit put on.

However, because you were feeling cold, I lit the open fire for you.

Lunch order: the time of every order is recorded so the chefs and waiting staff are always aware of how long any meal may be taking. The table that you made reference to actually only ordered a main course each whereas you and your companion ordered a starter and a main course. That was the only reason why they received their order before yours.

Your bill: I did not actually witness the error with your bill. You and your companion did indeed share one glass of wine and charging you for one glass each was our error which we rectified straight-away. I can only apologise for what was an unintentional mistake.

We value all our customers and always endeavour to make everyone feel welcome and well looked after. I am sorry that on this occasion we did not meet our own high standards. I hope you will visit again and give us the opportunity to provide our usual good service.

We stayed at the Swan for a family event and enjoyed the room and village before going to sleep. It was NOISY. Cars driving past and other loud guests made for a really poor nights sleep, as well as a bed that's probably older than the hotel: hard and lumpy.
The room was great with a lovely bathroom and great breakfast the next day, just sad it was tarnished by only a few hours of bad sleep. A bit overpriced too.
