My wife and I have visited Greytown previously, but only on day trips. This was the first time we stayed here overnight, and The White Swan was perfect for that. It's on Greytown's Main Street, within easy reach of locals cafes and restaurants, and the boutique shops in Greytown. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, but quiet, and we... More

Stayed in a Park Room with a balcony overlooking the park next door. Being able to open the doors and sit outside was awesome. Plenty of space in room, very clean, good kitchenette behind the doors. A bit noisy from the hotel below, however that's likely because it was warm so the windows were open. Good range of food options.

My husband and I stayed in the Ruby room for one night, during October. The weather was cool, which made the heating in the rooms all the more appreciated. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows and beautifully decorated throughout the room. The theme of the room was Ruby, rather exotic, reds, gold and hints of black. Downstairs... More

We have been here several times and it's always been good food. Nice sitting out the front in the sun. The fish and chips were delicious as was the home made beef burger. Good wine and beer selection. A good choice for lunch or dinner.

It is right on the main strip with shops and restaurants in close walking distance. Keep in mind many of he shops close... More

The service was a bit lacking but the food and ambiance were great. It would have been nice the be greeted with a smile but we felt like we were intruding. We had some dishes off the light menu and were really pleased. Water is available for self service off the bar. The toilets are clean and easy to find.
