We just came back from two nights in Alnwick which is a lovely place. The White Swan is located in the main street and is a short walk to all that this lovely country town has to offer. The rooms we were given were small and refurbished with the bathrooms being just that bit too tight. The semi circular shower...

The Rotary Club of Alnwick meets here every Thursday at 12.30pm for food and fellowship. The service is friendly and efficient. Yannick is especially helpful and helped to make our President's Night one to remember. Well done to all the staff and a mention for Julie who is always willing to help.

Had a really good stay at the hotel on the spring break offer. It was definitely worth the money. The room was good and despite reading previous reviews on this site, we thought it was fine.

I stayed here as attending event. The first room I got on check in I did not like mainly because it was twin beds. The rooms were old and dated. We went to the bar and the service was very good. As was breakfast the next day. Excellent. Nice little hotel. Great service.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our deal of bed, breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea was great value. The afternoon tea was wonderful. Dinner was average but the location in the Olympic dining room was a good experience. The Sauvignon blanc wine at £18.50 a bottle was terrible, very acidly and rough. Car parking at the hotel is...

A fabulous experience from start to finish. On a deal of £129 for dinner, bed, breakfast and afternoon tea, nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff. We were given an attic room with views down the Main Street. It was very clean and the marquetry of the swans was rather beautiful. All food in the restaurants was very...

Had a long weekend with relatives. On a package including Dinner and on reflection would have opted for the freedom to dine out. Despite having a tremendous dining room the standard of food and choice was sadly lacking. It deserves better. Having said that the Cream Tea (included in package) was incredible, bordering on too much! A little tired in...

This hotel is good rather than very good. The décor is a little dated and the food is good but not fantastic. The staff were without exception very friendly and helpful. The dining room features panelling and stained class windows from the sister ship of the Titanic and is very elegant.
