Stayed here for one night in the haunted room no.17 (alas no sightings of the wondering lady ghost). The White Swan is a lovely old hotel on the main road through Henley-in-Arden we called ahead to see if they had two rooms available for the night, they had one standard room (£95) and the Johnson Suite (£125) our friends stayed in the suite whilst we stayed in the standard room. Both rooms were spotless, our standard room had a walk in shower with one of those large overhead shower heads. A large double bed which was comfortable, tea and coffee making facilities plus TV.
We had a sunday lunch in the restaurant which was cooked and prepared by the chef and was very nice, thick slices of roast beef in a lovely gravy with yorkshire pudding plus seperate bowls of roast potatoes and steamed vegetables.
In the evening we sat in the pub and took part in the weekly quiz night (we finished last), and the cooked breakfast the following morning was probably one of the best we have had (2 real sausages, bacon, fried egg, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes (tinned), and toast.) all cooked while you wait, all piping hot.
All of the staff were very attentive and polite and the owners were very friendly.
I would definately recommend this place, we had a very enjoyable stay.
