Stayed at The Swan Hotel for a couple of nights as a relaxing break after a busy Christmas with the other half. We arrived at lunchtime on Friday and, despite the staff being very very busy, we got checked in sharply and were led up to our room. The lady that took us upstairs explained everything about the hotel, told us about the half-board offer they had on and couldn't have been more helpful. The fresh milk was a lovely touch too.
After an afternoon spent doing some sightseeing, we went back to the pub to sample some of their ales. They had a really good selection of Fullers beers on and a heapful more in bottles - over the course of our two night stay we tried pretty much all, and the barmen were always at hand with a recommendation.
We ate at the pub on the Saturday night of the stay, and while the menu was a bit limited (only one veggie dish), the meals we had couldn't be faulted and once again the waitress was very attentive. On the breakfast side, it again was very tasty - though service did seem a bit slow on the Sunday morning (it was quite busy).
Overall, we were both really impressed by The Swan - we were a bit worried after reading the reviews on here but I guess more people like to complain than compliment!
