Nice Hotel..we had breakfast in bed which was quite nice and filling..beers around the bar always seemed to run out..but to be honest if you like a drink its got to be tweedies bar in the centre of the village..didn't eat in the hotel..went to the jumble room which was quite nice but portions not man sized..been watching to much master chef..second night walked up the road and had a meal in the travellers rest inn which was excellent(but bring a torch!!!)..overal nice experiance...oh yes we used the tesco clubcard vouchers..book early as there are only so many selected weekends..

I took my girlfriend to this hotel for her birthday and also proposed to her I phoned the hotel for them to order me flowers and the receptionist Michelle mitchinson made it all to easy for me as I'm not the best at organising things. On arrival was very impressed with the hotel and surroundings was really nice, we got our room and was very impressed nice and cosy and very clean. I went to my car to get her card and bracelet and sort out the flowers with the reception manager Richard Wesley he took everything off me and sorted everything out as he picked up on how nervous I was he was absolutely brilliant. We had a meal in the restaurant and the general manager put us on a perfect table so romantic, the staff were all over us all nite to make sure everything was perfect and believe me it couldnt of been anymore perfect, everything went to plan and the food was gorgeous and all the staff were brilliant with us, breakfast was lovely too I honestly couldnt find one fault with this hotel and will definitely be back there to stay again, thankyou to the swan hotel and all the staff for a perfect weekend Adam and Kate

We stayed at the Swan last year and had a lovely time. We went again last weekend and were once again treated well by the staff. The room was quite, clean and comfortable. The bed was big and cosy. The food is absolutely wonderful. We had the lamb shank on one of the evenings and there was hardly any fat on it at all, Beautiful. The pea mash was a bit dry however a tasty and filling meal. The second night I had the steak which was cooked to my liking and was succulent and tender. The breakfast had everything that you would want from prunes to bacon and eggs cooked just the way you like them. Sitting in the lounge in the evening by the log fire was exceptional. I had pots of teas and hubby had the lager, very restful and I think we shall make this one of our favourite places to visit. Thank you Swan,

Room Tip: Room 11 was a good size and the bed was comfy, although it will depend on what type of bed you like...

We were staying in a nearby hotel and went out for a meal, we stopped off at the Swan and their main restaurant was closed but the service we received from Leigh and Richard was exceptional, we asked for a table and requested food from the main restaurant menu and it was exquisite so we would recommend to anyone visiting, we would highly rate the chefs Robert and Tony for the food they presented it was deliciaous
