A group of us stayed at the Macdonald Swan’s Nest in February for my husband’s 50th birthday. We were really pleased that we had decided to stay here. The hotel reception looks as if it has been recently renovated and check in went very smoothly. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. There was ample space in the car park and the fact that the parking was free was a bonus. We stayed in one of the Classic rooms which was very clean, albeit a little small. Provided in the room was a decent hairdryer, iron, ironing board and a kettle to make tea and coffee. The room was perfectly functional and again looked as though it had recently been renovated, particularly the bathroom which had a lovely shower. However, some of the guests in our party were in the older rooms which weren’t as nice, didn’t have air conditioning and were very warm. The hotel is a short 5 minute walk over the foot bridge to the town centre so it was nice to be in a quieter location but have easy access to the local shops etc. The Bear pub was really nice – we drank in there quite a few times. My only small complaint about this hotel would be the cost of breakfast (which was not included in our room price). I think £17.50 a head is a bit steep when we could get a full English breakfast over the road, including tea etc, for around £10. But in saying that we did get a really good deal on the room price booking over the phone directly with the hotel rather than on their website. We cannot fault our stay and would definitely stay here again.
