“Lovely location and good value...”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

The swan hasnt got its own carpark so we had to park in the street abit of a distance from the hotel but it was a quiet night so all was fine..The room we had was lovely with clean bedding and a comfortable bed which is always a bonus..Lovely toiletries which was a treat...The breakfast menu has some choices which made a nice change from the usual 'full english' ..The smoked haddock and poached egg was beautifully cooked..We had a restful night and a good breakfast which set us up for the day so would definately stay again...

Great location with a lovely lady giving breakfast, however staff were completely indifferent to being told that the tv was cracked and only showing a shattered picture. Wonder how many others will find out the same before anything happens

We had a lovely stay here after a day visit to Arundel Castle. Free parking available not too far past the Castle entrance, no problems with damage to car. The staff were all excellent, the food was good. We had dinner at the hotel and were very happy with the meals for all three of us. Yes it is old and creaky but you are in an old building so expect that. We did not have any problems with smells of any sort. The price was good and the location was perfect.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor and we happy with our room for three.

Stayed here on a business trip, first thing was, they dont have their own car-park, and you have to park in the short term council car park behind the hotel, so not ideal if you have a nice car and dont want the local chavs using it to sharpen their knives on it. The upstairs landing and bedroom smelt of wee, although the room itself was nicely decorated. The freebie shower gel and body lotion were probably the nicest I have found in extensive amounts of travelling around the UK.

During breakfast in the dining area, you could quite clearly hear a heated argument going on in the kitchen.

Finally, I stayed in a room with window boxes and due to it being summer, the window was open, but twice during the early hours, the automatic watering system woke me up with squirting noises.

Staff were friendly though, and at the end of the day, this is basically an old pub with some bedrooms for rent.

When I booked, I thought the hotel would be little better than rooms over a pub. I was very pleasantly surprised.
The manageress was very welcoming and efficient.
We had everything we wanted in our room including fresh milk-none of the little carton rubbish..The toiletries were lovely.
We ate at the Hotel on the first night and it was so good we ate there on our second evening too.
The breakfast was excellent.
I hadn't expected a full English so it was a nice surprise.
We hadn't expected there to be a Rock and Roll evening on our first night at the pub which was noisy until 11pm.
Had it not been for that, I would have awarded the Hotel 5*

We stayed for one night in June 2011. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was great, very comfortable bed and a very quiet room considering the room overlooked the High Street. Breakfast was very good, good choice of food available - highly recommended.
