“Fine hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Having stayed here for many year I always look forward to my return. This hotel I understand is in the process of a refurbishment, however having said that the rooms are fine and offer excellent value for money. Breakfast is always excellent and service is great too. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Arundel

Have just visited for an Easter day family lunch and was very impressed. Tables were well laid out with little net bags of mini eggs on each place. We were offered a carafe of water for the table as soon as we were seated, which was a good idea. Good menu choices and specials. 3 of our party had the roast pork and a roast beef. All were good portions with a varied vegetable selection and massive yorkshires! Good roast potatoes too. Delicious puddings. Reasonable price for good quality food and service.
Think I have mentioned this in a previous visit but good toilet facilities too!

Went to this restaurant for a meal on a Sunday and ordered the Lamb roast. Full of Gristle and under cooked unfortunately which meant most was left on the plate. Everything else was quite nice which is shame as the meal was ruined by a careless chef. Mentioned this to the waitress who just said I'll tell the chef. No apology, no offer of anything else. For £10.95 for a roast they are in the upper price bracket and this needs to be dead right. Otherwise a nice small town pub with a good atmosphere with friendly staff. I would probably risk it again as overall it was quite nice.

We had a great stay at The Swan Hotel. Our room was a great size - a king with room for a fold out bed for our 4 year old, and plenty of room for our luggage. The bathroom was clean and a good size (and yes, like the other reviewers have said, they really were nice toiletries). We also had a great meal in the pub at night, and breakfast was tasty.

This is an atmospheric pub, with good pub grub. There are restuarants in the street, but sometimes in the winter you need good steak with proper chips and good beer - all to be found in the Swan

Am writing this with a bit of reluctance, as the staff & the pub were really lovely but......the room really really wasnt!
Had got a deal on a "small" double but the room was very tiny indeed - not enough space to open the wardrobe door properly on one side of the bed nor to walk down the other. But we didnt really mind this, nor the lack of alarm clock/radio/only very basic 4 TV channels, as we were only staying one night.
We identified early on that the fan in the tiny bathroom was very noisy - unfortunately our neighbours' left theirs on during several prolonged occasions during the night, which fan seemed to vibrate right through the corner of the room by our pillows. A lack of sleep was compounded in the morning by an inability to have a proper shower as there was only a trickle of barely luke-warm water.
We couldnt find the manager when we wished to check out so paid our bill with the pleasant young breakfast waitress to whom it didnt seem appropriate to raise our problems.
I dont know what the other bedrooms are like - but if you are offered Room 14 I suggest you decline.
