I was taken to this hotel on a surprise romanic trip away and was over the moon. I can be fairly picky with accommodation, but the decor is fab, service was brilliant and the food is great. You really don't need to leave the hotel. The only downside is that there aren't other pubs or restaurants in walking distance, but the hotel facilities are so good it doesn't really matter. Highly recommended.

This is a very stylish well thought out hotel. Beautiful decor, very very good staff. Had dinner here twice, faultless... reasonable wine list. Loved the breakfast room. Rooms were box fresh.
I'm a Windermere ex-pat and Lakes hotels never used to be like this...

My family and I stayed here whilst dealing with a family tragedy and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and courteous.

Thank you

Room - comfortable, large, light. Got quite warm at night, and the aircon was quite loud when switched on.

Food - reasonably priced, wide selection, prompt and friendly service. We didn't have a bad meal either in the bar or the restaurant. Two good local ales on offer at the bar too.

Location - good for the South Lakes, but those looking to go hill walking might want to choose a hotel a little further north.

Price - not cheap, but not unreasonable.

This was my second trip to the Swan Hotel after it was recommended by a friend. I am very hard to please and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Swan Hotel to others. We booked for two night’s accommodation for a girly weekend for 16 of us. The rooms had been renovated since my last stay and were lovely in all aspects. On the Friday we dinned in the restaurant this was again first class. Breakfast on Saturday was faultless. We had booked Spa days - it was amazing to have the Spa to our selves – the therapists were prefect and I highly recommend. I have read others reviews and I totally disagree saying the Swan was pricey. Lunch was excellent value for money for the amount of food, and quality of the produce, and service. The cost of treatments were very similar to other hotels in the area, I researched this before booking for such a large group of people. The only fault was the Spa had rung the bar to say there was a group of us for lunch, please seat these people together, I understand it was a busy day, but that didn’t happen, but the service and the quality of the food made up for this. The Swan is in a great location. One friend booked in again for her wedding anniversary with her children. The relaxed atmosphere made a prefect weekend away, we used all the factilies the staff were helpful and very pleasant – my only regret is that I couldn’t say for longer.

We stayed at The Swan for a short break over the school half term holidays. We've stayed quite a few times before, always having a really nice experience, and this visit was no exception. All the staff were incredibly courteous and helpful, the quality of the room was superb, and the dining was excellent. We stayed in one of the suites which have a connecting room, which is ideal if you have a family and you want to get the kids settled down to an in-house movie while you take take the opportunity to dine in the restaurant! The pool/gym and spa are also both first rate facilities, and you get the same level of customer service as in the rest of the hotel, which is excellent. The Swan is an ideal venue for a family break and one which I would wholeheartedly recommend.

We have just returned from a 1 night stay at the swan Hotel. We have stayed there before but, have always left our children at home. This time we took our children 3 and 8 as we were celebrating my Birthday and we were not disappointed. The hotel is great for children and people of all ages. The hotel bedrooms have been renovated since we were last there along with the rest of the hotel which is to a very good standard. I found the hotel to be exceptionally clean and I am fussy! We all eat in the restaurant we had a table for 11 the staff in the restaurant were exceptionally helpful and for all you Coeliacs out there I found the menu catered for my needs. They always have lots of specials on and are very quick to help if you have any allergies or special requirements. We will be visitin the Swan again hopefully soon.

five of us went to this hotel for a spa day on sunday the 13th feb we had saved for ages. The hotel was indeed beautiful we went to use the facilities the pool was great .... we went into the steam room then the sauna all good but then .... when we came out the pool had turned int a childens playground we couldnt sit around the edge of the pool as kids were running all over splashing throwing toys , balls ect the jacuzzi was broke so we could not use that , one child was even taken into the steam room !!we then went to sit in reception we had been given robes (no slippers) but there was not enough seats two of us had to sit on the floor. We then decided to go to the chill out lounge to wait for our treatments but there was not enough seats and as we were in our robes it would have meant us going back down stairs to sit in the lounge and to get dressed and undresssed, after being asked to be quiet by the therapist ,we then had our treatments which were nice but we were not relaxed, we were not told when we booked about the lack of seating arrangements or about the volume of children around the pool area, we wrote and complained but the hotel believe that this spa day is exellent what we would say is lovely hotel but if there is a group of you book else where for your spa day do your home work and ask about how many people can be accomodated comfortably it cost us 350.00 for one of the most unrelaxing days we have ever had!!!!!!
