Having just returned from a lovely stay at Swinton Park I realised I have yet to write a review on this place, even though this isn't our first time here.
Swinton Park is a wonderfully romantic 'top of the range' hotel. Yes it's a little on the expensive side, but if you time it right, there are good offers available and you won't regret paying that little bit extra. We stayed Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. Even though we booked the cheapest room they had, it was still beautifully presented, spacious with an enormous bed and a bathroom you could get lost in. The evening food and service was exceptionally good, the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We upgraded to the tasting menu and enjoyed 8 courses, all excellent in slightly different ways. It was a real experience and something we will definitely do again in the future.
Breakfast was as expected... lots of choice (almost too much) and everything delicious. The perfect way to start a day. After breakfast we enjoyed a lovely walk in the grounds of the hotel before we departed to find a pub for Sunday lunch (This was only due to a wedding otherwise we would have stayed).
We will definitely be returning to Swinton Park to stay and to eat. It's a very special place and deserves all 5 of the stars I am giving it today.
