The property is really beautiful and full of character. We had the most enjoyable walks in the gardens and to the lakes. Many animals make the stroll even more interesting.
We stayed in very large and comfortable Duke Room. I had mixed feelings about the food at dinner in the restaurant one night. But the next day we arrived late and ordered room service and could not have had a more tasty supper. Very well done and high quality ingredients. Breakfast was also very good with a variety of selections. The staff was attentive and friendly.
We had a very good time at Swinton Park and worked as a good base spot for visiting the Yorkshire area and villages.

was absolutely superb. The Swinton Park Hotel is set in fabulous grounds with superb gardens, lakes and wildlife including some amazing Birds of Prey. The afternoon tea was a gift from a family member and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were very friendly whilst maintaining a professional efficiency.

Afternoon Tea is not something we would normally do but we will definitely go back.

Thanks ever so much to the team....

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.

We have been staying at Swinton Park for the last 10 years or so, visiting it 2 or 3 times a year. Although we live fairly nearby, it is a really wonderful place to stay for a short break at any time of year. The setting is fantastic, the service is first class, the accommodation is superb and the food is high quality. We have stayed in probably ten rooms in recent years and they are all very good. I would highlight the restaurant in particular. I can't understand why it hasn't gained a Michelin stare yet. It thoroughly deserves it. The grounds are really attractive - the deer park, the woods, lakes, etc. The hotel is very dog-friendly and that is a big factor in why we want to keep coming here. Swinton Park is our favourite hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are of high quality. The only real difference is in the size of rooms and price.

A much needed midweek break from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. From the moment we walked through the door to leaving, we were treated with the utmost courtesy. We arrived a little too early to check in, but were given a guided door of the house before taking a seat outside on the terrace and enjoy a drink watching the bucks in the deerpark. We stayed in the gorgeous Scarborough room, and it was absolutely delightful. We booked dinner in Samuels, already knowing we were going to go for the tasting menu, and I highly recommend booking the spa for an exclusive hour to really get you in the mood for relaxation.
Dinner was superb, with wine to match the tasting menu, the waiter skilled in what he knew yet not insufferable with his descriptions of each course. I can't remember his name, but he was fantastic!
Breakfast was good, we came down towards the end so there wasn't a lot of continental choice left, but we were after a hearty full english before taking to the grounds on foot. It was superb.

With both myself and my partner working in Hotels, it is often very difficult to turn off when staying away, but we were both delighted in how easy we found it. I can't wait to stay at Swinton Park again!

Room Tip: Scarborough was beautiful.

We stayed at Swinton Park for the Tour de France. The hotel is set in its own vast parkland, overlooking a river, with its own herd of rare white deer. The staff are all very friendly, and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and relaxed. The hotel is a wonderful building, and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The food is out of this world, the chef and his team are extremely talented. Swinton Park is one of the best hotels we have stayed in.
