As my wife and I were attending a "Garden Lunch" event at Swinton we booked bed and breakfast for the previous night. At the time of booking I was told that we would be given the 'Whitby' room and made a note of the fact. On booking in we were allocated the 'Constable Burton' room and whilst it was the same category of room and very pleasant we thought the change unfortunate. The receptionist was unable to give any explanation for the change. Another small omission which should not occur in a Hotel of this quality was the discovery of a used tea bag still in the teapot in the room.
We acknowledge that the above are only small issues in an establishment which in every other respect was splendid. The bedrooms are spacious and very well equipped, the public rooms are sumptuous and the grounds are nothing short of delightful.
The "Garden Lunch" event hosted by Susan Cunliffe-lister was most enjoyable and informative.
