Stayed here for the weekend on 30 November while visiting family in Halifax. We chose the White Swan for a number of reasons - not least because it offered a really good weekend rate which, including breakfast and parking, was cheaper than the Premier Inn. I used to live in the area so knew it had an excellent town centre location and was a step up from some of the other hotels in Halifax.
Overall the hotel fully met my expectations. The service was fantastic both on reception, in the breakfast room/bar and for parking. Our standard room was clean and pleasantly furnished and had all the amenities you would expect. The hotel is right in the town centre so very easy to get out and about (once you have mastered the one way system!) and the secure parking is a real bonus. My partner thoroughly enjoyed his full English breakfast and the bar prices, while perhaps more than the local pubs, were reasonable. Although there was a little bit of street noise from the cleaners in the early hours of Sunday the room was generally very quiet given its location.
We had just a couple of minor niggles - our mattress was incredibly soft and didn't make for a great night's sleep and we did have to run the water in the shower and sink for quite a few minutes before it got warm enough. Neither were so significant that we felt the need to mention them or ask to change rooms though. Lastly it would have been nice to be offered a vegetarian option for the cooked breakfast but there was plenty of fruit, cereal etc so I didn't miss it too much. None of this detracted from a very enjoyable stay.
Will definitely visit again and would strongly recommend this as a really good value hotel.
