We spent five nights at the White Swan at the end of April, and enjoyed the experience. We stayed in a Hideaway room, and made a good bit of use of the Bothy - the customer lounge across from the Hideaway rooms. (If it is important for you, we found that WiFi coverage did not extend to the Hideaway rooms on the lower level, but it is a quick walk to the Bothy where you receive full coverage.) We used Pickering as a base to explore north Yorkshire. We spent a day on the coast, visiting Scarborough and Whitby, and another day at the disappointing Castle Howard. One day we drove to Malton and took the train into York for a day of exploring. Our favorite excursion was the day we spent at Rievaulx Abbey and Helmsley Castle - just wonderful.
We really enjoyed our two dinners at the White Swan, and we had a very nice Indian meal at Cilantro, just across the road from the hotel. We were not as impressed with our dinner at nearby Figaro.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you at this proper family run Inn. Next year will be our 30th at The White Swan and we have just about got things organised. From the moment you walk through the doors you'll feel at home. We aim to keep things simple and just let you relax ...Tom Parker Bowles reckons 'Every market town should have a White Swan' and the Daily Telegraph described us as 'God's own Country Pub' on a recent visit. If you read the reviews here you will get a flavour of what we are trying to do. We are an Inn with a lovely restaurant and 2 rosette food but not the plastic fine dining you find in many four star properties. Real food, real people, lovely rooms and great value for money.And by the way if you are not delighted I will give you your money back so long as you tell us at the time.Victor Buchanan - Owner ... more less
