The Black Swan sits on the Market Square in the pretty Yorkshire village of Helmsley. The exterior of the hotel is attractive - however it is pretty dark inside (I guess that's par for the course in what seems a very old building). The room was fine although the decor was a bit dated. Staff seemed very laid back and friendly.
Breakfast was very good with generous portions.
Helmsley Castle etc a stone's throw away.
Overall not a bad place to stay, although would probably try somewhere else next time.
