The Black Swan
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Devizes
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We struggled to find a last minute booking on the return trip from Cornwall to London for 4 adults and a dog. This was all we could find and so my expectations were low. However this was a very pleasant friendly place to stay. The rooms were spotless and there was plenty of hot water. We ate in the bar, and the food was very good, we had lamb or pork shank between us. We all slept well in the comfortable beds. There was a large cooked breakfast available in the morning. There were two other dogs there as well as our one. Admittedly the place is rather worn and tired and perhaps needs some refurb, also the stairs are very steep, but overall it was a quirky old inn and so had plenty of character. It is the middle of the town so had easy access to other places and to the canal nearby. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

Friendly very helpful staff and comfortable rooms, really nice food all meant that we had a very pleasant stay, extremely relaxing. Everything was very clean. The route into the car park is somewhat challenging - but adds to the charm of the place.

This is a 15th century pub with about 10 rooms. The breakfast is freshly cooked, plentiful and cooked quickly. There is plenty of coffe, tea and juices and a great welcome. The room we had was an ensuite double and was excellent value. The bathroom is large and the shower is hot and powerful! Lots of towels, very clean - and the most comfortable bed I have slept in for a long time! The pub is central for shops etc. we were there for a wedding at St. John's church and that was a 5 minute walk away. With free parking as well, the black swan was great value and everything could have wanted for our visit.

We bought a great deal from Wowcher and were worried after reading some of the reviews however we found the hotel to be very clean and great value for money. The food was excellent and the landlord and staff very friendly and helpful. We came here with friends (part of the group of 8 already reviewed by BarnesLeicester) and had a great time. And even though we were a little rowdy at times the landlord/staff did not bat an eyelid. Would definitely go again.

Room Tip: Room 6 - good size room with a comfortable bed - on the same floor at room 4!!

I had looked at previous reviews and was not sure what to expect- well my expectations certainly exceeded.

Great staff- not miserable at all, the landlord and staff couldn't do enough for us - we were a group of 8 friends enjoying a weekend away - so glad we went here

Food excellent- could not fault any of it

Rooms clean - enough for what we wanted and location great

Would all definitely go back again

Room Tip: If you are light sleeper then ask for back room as you could hear night time people coming out of pu...

Just returned from a fabulous stay at this hotel. Warm, friendly, delicious food and service. Free car parking which is a bonus these days". Such a lovely place to,visit, so near many places of interest. We went into Bath for the day on the local bus. Then in Devizes went on a lovely trip in a canal long boat. Loads to do and see. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. I'm going back!
