A friend and I stumbled on The Swan & Royal just by chance while on a motorcycle tour.
Very friendly welcome. The rooms were far and away better than anything we could have hoped for, and at very reasonable prices. Manager and staff very helpful providing secure parking for bikes. History of hotel very interesting with several famous guests in years gone by. Breakfast excellent. Would use this hotel again without hesitation.
