We had our wedding at The Swan on 27th September this year. I was concerned during the build up to the wedding as the hotel did not seem very organised. This was until new management took over and I was called by one of the lovely receptionists and put in contact with the new events coordinator. Between the two of them our wedding was spectacular.
Any problems that arose were sorted out subtly and quickly. Our reception ran without a hitch (not that I as the bride noticed) and we were made to feel so welcome and special on our day.
Our room was spotless (they even gave us a card and confetti). Our food was lovely, although service at breakfast was slow. We had family staying at the hotel who all said the rooms were great and the only problem was some mistakes on the hotels system on checking out.
We cannot thank the staff enough and intend to come for lunch to show off the wedding pictures!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Swan Hotel Alton near Farnham and Basingstoke, is located in the Hampshire town of Alton with easy access via the A31 making it an ideal base if visiting Farnham, Aldershot, Winchester, Basingstoke. The Swan Hotel dates back to the 16th century and was a main stage on the old London-Southampton coaching route, and the Swan Hotel has been catering handsomely to passing traffic since the 16th century. Tradition has it that the poet Edmund Spenser, Sir Francis Drake, Queen Elizabeth I and the Earl of Essex all broke their journeys here. Another famous guest was Lord Nelson. Our guests include many people of sense and sensibility - that is to say, devotees of Jane Austen, who make their pilgrimage to her cottage in the Chawton, where Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, were both written, during their stay with us. The cottage now is a popular tourist attraction and museum dedicated to Jane's life and work. Today the Swan Hotel is popular with locals and travellers alike and along with the new refurbishment is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. ... more less
