This hotel has been getting excellent reviews recently and so it should. It superb. From start to finish me and my wife felt as though we were in total luxury. I felt the need to come on here and defend the hotel as many of the other guests seemed to be rude, obnoxious and down right picky towards the staff. While we were there we saw snotty children shouting at staff, adults demanding to see the manager over ridiculous things (i.e the pork was too salty. Duh. dont order pork then), and even being rude to staff waitresses because she had the audacity to read out a long list od specials at dinner. The mind boggles. I swear some people come on holiday to hate every minute of it and I have never witnessed a bunch of entitled, rude and downright childish adults than I have when I stayed at this hotel. Unfortunately they are bringing their children up the same way judging by the way some of them behaved within the hotel.
Make no mistake about it, this is a top class hotel with pleasant and well groomed staff. Our stay was amazing from start to finish and we wish to thank the staff at the swan for making it so special. Some of the guests who stayed there should be ashamed of themselves.
