We loved our one night stay here recently.I had not booked ahead but the staff were lovely and could not be more helpful. We were shown the room first to see if we liked it and they put an extra bed in the living area for our daughter at no extra cost. The garden suites at the back of the...

A fantastic place to stay. A beautiful hotel. Stayed in the White Room. Magnificent. The food was superb, great three course meal ending in the fabulous Choc cheesecake. The service was superb, staff really friendly and helpful. Just made for a wonderful night.

We were given a gift for our engagement in April - and had planned to use it in summer, only to realise it expired 6m after issue. When I called, the manager in the background was clearly irritated by my asking if they would honour the voucher - but they agreed, if it was a non weekend and asked me...

We visited this lovely town for two nights - girls trip. So we booked a garden apartment as we could have two beds split. I have stayed all over the world and this was the worst mattress ever - tossed and turned all night. The room was poorly heated - no spare blankets are supplied. We visited the bar twice...

Stayed in the Madison for one night as part of a Treatme deal with deluxe suite and dinner for two. Dinner was fantastic. Far too much food actually with all three courses consumed. Starter of salmon bruschetta was best, a tarte tartin for main and desserts of crème brulee and a crumble with icecream. Truly lovely and fantastic local wine...

We found the staff very helpful and friendly, and the food was absolutely delicious! The sticky date pudding is to die for. We have always preferred restaurants to hotels in terms of food, but this food was great - the equal of any good restaurant.

On arrival we rang the bell as the sign said to do and then stood around for over 5 minutes until someone finally came out of the office and went and got a staff member from the bar. Same thing when we went to dinner, stood in the restaurant waiting to be seated for quite a while. On saying that...

The White Swan is immaculately presented and looks beautiful. However the problem I had was 2 nights of interrupted sleep - every time someone opens or closes a door downstairs the upstairs room shakes and the noise travels throughout the building. Patrons in the bar shouted deep into the night, and there is no sound baffling from the main road...

I was looking forward to returning to the White Swan - this time to try out the George Suite. First impressions were again very favourable - the room is magnificently appointed with a large lounge/dining space set out with traditional English style furnishings. However the experience was rather ruined by the amount of noise we had to suffer there. Every...

For a 70th birthday treat for our friend we thought we would book two nights at the White Swan Hotel in Greytown in the Wairarapa. Close to Wellington with a scenic drive over the Rimutakas to get there. Two nights spent at the hotel with 3 relaxing days filled visiting Masterton shopping, golfing and Martinborough for dining and shopping. Toured...
