The Old Swan is a traditional hotel located a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. We booked 4 rooms for a group of friends attending a Christmas party night. The rooms are individually furnished but all were clean, warm and with everything necessary for a short break. Breakfast was excellent - hot and cold buffet or a la carte- all sampled by our group and complimented by toast, pots of tea and coffee replenished with a smile by courteous and efficient restaurant staff.
We enjoyed a lovely pre Christmas get together at one of the hotels party nights during which we enjoyed a 3 course meal served piping hot with everyone enjoying their chosen menu. We had pre organised drinks which were on our table in wine coolers and ice buckets and also fresh iced water replenished (without asking- hurray!!) throughout the evening. 10/10 to all the function staff.
This is an old hotel with old lifts and winding staircases, traditional decor and lovely fireplaces, ceilings etc., if you want a modern sleek impersonal hotel then it's not for you but if you want smiling, helpful staff and a lovely old English hotel this fits the bill.
Would I go back? Absolutely.More
