Beate and her team of friendly staff have really made this a perfect place to stay if you're wishing to visit the fabulous town of Arundel, with it's wonderful Castle and shops.
This hotel has been beautifully renovated whilst maintaining the existing history and building features...yes, the rooms are smaller than you would get at a modern chain of hotels, but the charm of this place is that it is totally individual, and although small, the rooms are equipped with everything you could possibly require, including home baked shortbread:) You also have to embrace the fact that the hotel is in the main street of Arundel, and as such, not the quietest, but so handy for strolling. Everything complements, everything is provided, everything is quality, and the breakfast and dinner which we ate in the restaurant was simply delicious.
We really could not fault a single thing here and will definitely be returning. Well done to you all:)

A fabulous Inn with luxury roms and one of the best restaurants in South of England. Go here for a week-end break and enjoy the many antique shops and beautiful surrounding walks.
The staff are very friendly and go that extra mile. The breakfasts are huge and delicious

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms more spacious

We stayed here to visit Arundel Castle (Attention: closed from October until April!), so only stayed for one night.

Positive
Nice location, really close to Arundel Castle. Really friendly and caring staff on the arrival. Reserved a table at the dining area. The room was really good. (We even had received an upgrade for free and without asking for)
Negative:
The staff in the morning - not unfriendly but rather uninterested and not caring.

The Swan is in the lower town centre and is ideal for seeing Arundel on foot. It’s really feels more of a pub/restaurant with rooms than a hotel. Check in is at the bar and you will be shown through the dining room to get to the door to the stairs and upper rooms. Our superior room was large, well furnished, comfortable and quite clean. Unfortunately the room was very cold when we arrived and the radiator didn’t work. When we asked for some assistance a member of staff quickly supplied us with an electric radiator that worked well. The room has shutters rather than curtains and I think I would mention a warm room if booking next time in the colder months. The hotel was perfectly quiet at night and we weren’t disturbed by noise from the high street outside or from inside. The dining room was busy on the night we stayed and portions appeared large (pub style). We only had breakfast at the hotel and my bacon and egg was not good. Very overcooked bacon and hard eggs. Perhaps I was unlucky. That said it is a generally agreeable place to stay in Arundel and I would stay again.

Room Tip: Try the superior rooms on the first floor.

Stayed here during Glorious Goodwood, really could not fault the place. It was booked for me by my boss, have to say we generally only ever stay in hotels, but there was nothing I could fault about The Swan. We were greeted by a lovely lady who gave us lots of information about the area, the room was ready and we were able to book in early. Gne too. Was very clean and everything fresh, the weather was warm but there was a fan available in the room which kept the room at just the right temperature. Breakfast was first class and there service excellent. We will most definitely book again at some time. The pub and some of the rooms are also dog friendly which means Missi can come and keep us companion our next trip. Really is worth a stay here.

Room Tip: The executive rooms are slightly larger so probably worth paying that little bit more, we were over...

We spent one night at the Swan recently, and no complaints really. Only negatives are no free car park,though I managed to park in the street close by for free. And narrow stair cases to take your luggage. If you in any way having difficulty with stairs, this isn't the place for you.
The staff throughout the stay were great. Very friendly from check in onwards, helpful and efficient.
The room was on the top floor, not huge but perfectly adequate, with a good size bathroom with separate shower. View from the window included the castle and the river, with the main street right outside. There was very little noise problem though. Everything was very clean and well maintained.
Breakfast was excellent, great choice and everything freshly cooked.
Location is also excellent, right in the very pleasant little town of Arundel,close to the river and castle and shops.
I would definitely stay at The Swan again if in the area.
