    I came here last Saturday to get some lunch, with my partner. The prices of the food and drink did not reflect the venue- high prices for a very average hotel. We waited about 45 mins for our food ( without being told about a...More

    Excellent hotel, excellent food and some excellent staff. I look forward to staying again in the future. We were looked after, fed well, enjoyed the atmosphere, slept well, and cant understand why the star rating isnt higher.

    The food and drinks are great here, can't fault it. Daily papers are on offer too, along with free wifi. Often on a Saturday there's a long wait for food (45 mins today) which, although they forewarn people when ordering, still is poor. There are...More

    It appears that the Management team at the Swan Hotel do not respond to many comments, if at all, so time to take a good look at the comments i.e. both positive and negatives and extend the courtesy of responding to at least the last 20 reviewers for starters. Thanks

    I rang up today to book a table but to my disappointment you did not cater for a hard of walking potential customer for one hour in your car park at a lunch time. You recommended a nearby car park. Which bit of hard of walking did you not understand? No car park space? For a disabled person? Can you tell me why that is please? Would it really have been that big a deal for one hour and we were willing to pay. You've now lost lots of other lunch time customers (work in a big office!) who work in town because of stubbornness and non disabled friendly attitude. Awful in this day and age. Booked elsewhere now.
