Having read the reviews for the hotel, and planning a trip away for my Mum's 60th, I decided to splash out on Swinton Park. It is more expensive than other hotels ( I opted for the £600 spa break with treatments including two nights dinner bed and breakfast), but I wanted to go somewhere that could guarantee an amazing experience, and this seemed to be the place that would offer this.
Too much to write about really, but the highlights were; the food (think Masterchef!), our room (Middleham- we were upgraded) the falconry display where we were able held the bird, the surrounding land and picturesque walks with beautiful lakes, the stunning garden, the private spa (what a great idea!), Molten Brown toiletries in our room and at turndown, the treatments, the variety of wildlife in the grounds of the hotel, the absolute grandness of everything, and last but not least the fantastic service from all the staff.
The only downside I can report was that I had paid for 3 hours of spa treatments which were to be included in the package and which was arranged by telephone beforehand (an hour and a half each). However my mum and I had only one hour each , so I lost the extra hour I had paid for, which I felt was disappointing as the weekend by no means cheap. I know this may sound petty but having paid quite a bit I expected to get the works and not to lose an hour of the time I had booked.
That aside, if you are looking for somewhere amazing and with the wow factor you will not be disappointed with the overall experience at Swinton Park.
