“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is the second time I have stayed at Swinfen which is a delightful place. The hotel is well appointed and comfortable. I was part of a small business conference and the meeting room and facilities was excellent. The rooms are very nice, but for me the best aspect is the restaurant. The food and service is excellent, a real gem.

My husband and I booked a table for lunch. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel, relaxed, comfortable and totally looked after. The food was amazing, service, perfect and the whole experience was one I will repeat again in the future. Thank you.

We had a truly memorable day at Swinfen for our wedding reception and are very grateful to all the staff for making it all run so smoothly and for all their help with our preparations. So many guests were extremely complimentary about the venue – the food, service and the setting – many said it was “perfect”! We certainly felt Swinfen met all our expectations and more.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very individual and many have good views so worth going the best you can.

As a family, we were travelling to the Lake District and decided to break up the journey at Swinfen Hall Hotel. Its a majestic setting, with wonderful garden and a real sense of space. The service was excellent at all time, which helps when you have three young children. We had a large family room, very spacious and well set up with a cot.

The cooked breakfast was a real treat - we felt refreshed and ready for the next stage of our trip. Its close to Drayton Manor theme park, which we visited on the return journey.

I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced hotel in this area.

I cannot recommend this gorgeous hotel more. We stayed for a couple of nights for our anniversary and were completely blown away! The hotel itself is stunning but it is all about the staff, who were wonderful.

The staff were so friendly and yet extremely professional. Our every whim was catered for and we really didn't want to leave. Please keep this hotel privately owned, you just do not get this kind of stay with a chained hotel.

The food was also excellently done, from the breakfasts to the afternoon tea and evening meals.

Please visit this wonderful hotel and you will not be disappointed.

Dear parking65

Thank you for the review you posted following your recent visit to the Hall for Afternoon Tea.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your experience. Afternoon Teas have become extremely popular in recent years and we are very lucky to have the terrace with such wonderful views over our deer park. We are certainly having some wonderful weather enabling us to use the terrace!

We are hoping to introduce our Salmon and Strawberries menu for August and September. Keep your eyes peeled if you're on our mailing list and if you're not on their let me have you email address!

Kind Regards

We recently held our wedding at Swinfen Hall Hotel (in June) and cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

ALL of the staff are professional and polite, with nothing being too much trouble. The Wedding Coordinator and General Manager are both exceptional, with them considering all of the small details and they ensured a perfect day. If Brides and Grooms are looking for a perfect wedding venue, then this is it. We had a small wedding (35 guests), but the small party did not feel overwhelmed, and all of the guests commented on what a superb property and wedding. Many even called it the 'best wedding' that they have ever been too, and this is mostly due to the venue, service, and fantastic food.

Preceding the wedding day itself, we (my family, friends, and husband!) visited Swinfen Hall many times to truly get a feel for the venue. We had lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and drinks, all on separate days, and the food and service was consistently excellent. If you are looking for a romantic meal, lunch with friends, or even a business location, I think this property would fulfill all your needs.

The guest rooms are all very nice, and received many compliments (no complaints at all) from my guests. We only stayed in the Bridal Suite, which was very, very pleasant. The hot water does take a while to come through the taps, but the building is older, and large, so that is to be expected, and a non-issue for me, but this is the only 'issue' I can mention. The Welcome letter from the Hotel is a nice touch, and explains the features (including the hot water time) of this lovely building.

The attention to the small details, and the helpfulness and professionalism of the staff are what really stand this venue apart though. Obviously it is well known for the superb food and the accolades it has for that, but the staff are what make this venue exceptional. I would have no hesitation in recommending Swinfen Hall, and will definitely be a repeat visitor on my trips back to the UK.

Thanks again to Ruth and Stuart for all of their help and assistance!
