“Perfect in every way apart from a rather soft and clapped out bed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

We have stayed here several times and keep returning as we always have such a wonderful time. The food is delicious, the staff attentive and friendly without being overwhelming and the hotel is ideally placed for glorious country walks. Our rooms in the old building have always been lovely apart from this occasion where the bed had most definitely seen better days! We will most definitely be going back but will be sure not to stay in "Countryman" again until they have a new mattress!

Booked this trip via Secret Escapes and it was a little gem! Gorgeous room with robes, hot water bottle and a little tipple! Food was amazing and staff extremely friendly and welcoming! Loved the lounges with board games and books very relaxing esp with log fire burning.The gardens were rather flooded but it was still very picturesque! Can't wait to book and come back again! Will definitely be recommending.

Wow what an amazing place. A treasure - fantastic staff, great location, amenities and food. The rooms are beautifully appointed and full of character with a measure of sherry left in the room each night to help you wind down.

There really is only on e place to go. For great staff, amazing friendliness, and a wonderful time, I wholeheartedly recommend the Old Swan & Minster Mill.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room and go for the D,B&B rate for the best of everything.

Just got back from our second visit to the Old Swan & Minster Mill this time we took the dog. I got to say the welcome we all received was top rate nothing to much trouble super friendly staff and our dog highly recommends the chicken and rice dinner she had delivered to our room.
See you all very soon.

We booked the Valentine's weekend as we were celebrating having met on Valentine's day 10 years ago. We were not disappointed, despite the water water everywhere. In fact it made it a more interesting experience! We were given a superb room in the Old Swan with a four poster bed and loved all the little touches like a card from the management. The food was delicious and the cream tea very scrummy. We also enjoyed the back massage, perfect relaxation! We hope to return again in the summer so as to enjoy the gardens and water meadows. Definitely recommend this superb hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Old Swan, the Richard III room with a four poster. Superb facilities. Would recomm...

Old Swan and Minster Mill is a little gem. Although the grounds were a little water logged after the heavy rain it made no difference to a fabulous weekend. The food was exceptional my compliments to the chefs, the staff were attentive, friendly and went the extra mile. I had the spa experience with Vicky who was brilliant. The river room although not large was extremely comfortable and cosy with little extras to make your weekend complete. Will definitely be revisiting this hotel in the summertime to appreciate the walks and hotel facilities.
