Have just had a quick impromptu night away at The Swan and we opted to splash out on a Four Poster suite (Room 12) to spoil ourselves, although in retrospect it was in our opinion overpriced for the quality of accommodation you get. We opted for an internet special price including evening meal which cost £245.00 for one night. Although it was novel to sleep in a four poster, it is a bit of a rickety four poster. Also, in the bathroom there is a lovely double jacuzzi bath with shower attachment over that constantly drips cold water on whoever's sitting in that end! Add to that the loose toilet handle that comes off in your hand and the fact that the heating hadn't been put on prior to our arrival we felt pretty disappointed considering we could have opted for a standard or deluxe en-suite room for £100-£120 less. I mentioned the faults with the room on departure and some fumbling excuses were made but no offer to compensate or reduce the rate at all. Other than that, the location is great, the staff really friendly especially in the restaurant and the food's not bad. I wouldn't want to put anyone off going but I really don't think that the room we had was worth the money, especially with the easy to fix obvious faults in the bathroom, you really would expect it to be spot on. Go for a standard or deluxe room for £80-£100 plus your meal and you shouldn't go far wrong. Bar prices on the heavy side (£18.00 for a bottle of Rose, £3.40 or so for a pint of Guinness).
