Service , atmosphere
Good room. Good breakfast. Lovely building
Corridor carpets dirty. Large virtually empty breakfast room, but got seated next to another couple when we should have had a table on our own
Live music in the bar was excellent.
Room was a little tired looking. (Room 28)
The warm relaxed atmosphere in the hotel. Allowing dogs in the public rooms all very relaxing. An excellent dinner wonderful restaurant staff again very relaxed and enjoyable. Breakfast was good.Reception staff good.
I would expect a few nibbles to be provided with my pre dinner drinks in a hotel of this quality. Having to ask for the table to be wiped in the lounge when we were having pre dinner drinks.
location was good
Hotel a little shabby, expensive bar x2 glasses wine 20 pounds !! Bed very hard
Enjoyed the location and the style of the hotel. The staff are very professional
Small bed which was not comfy
The stay was better than we had anticipated- friendly unobtrusive service , fab food . Lovely area - what's not to like !
Staff courtesy, setting, room,service
Location, interior, fireplaces, great restaurant, excellent wine list.
The position of hotel right in town square. The evening meal was excellent. The waiters friendly and really helpful.
The hotel room could have been better, bathroom definitely need rippin out and a new one fitted. The next night we stayed in a Premier Inn and this was much better.
We had to wait until 9.45 for our table.
The staff were fantastic and incredibly passionate about their jobs.
The room was like an inferno - why are hotels always so hot?
Friendly professional staff in all areas of the hotel. Good food, nice surroundings, very comfy bed.
We had booked a meal for 9pm and were asked to sit in the bar as our table wasn't ready....head waiter said he'd come through with menus but he obviously forgot...at 9.20pm we had to ask again. Eventually sat down at 10pm!
Glass table tops in bar area could do with a good polish with glass cleaner
Everything, the hotel/staff couldn't be faulted.
I can honestly say there was nothing I didn't like. Absolutely first class..
Friendly efficient staff and superb cuisine
Hotel Location Food
Comfort of the bed, too firm
Very polite, helpful staff . Nothing too much trouble
Everything fine !
The Black Swan was a perfect get away for us to celebrate our 26th Anniversary. We're looking forward to going back soon.
The hotel hair dryer flashed when turned on, fused the plug circuit in the room and burnt the sleeve of my bathrobe. It was fortunate I was not holding it close to my hair when I turned it on. I was surprised that No enquiry as to my health or recompose was offered after the incident. We were on a celebratory weekend and didn't want to make too much fuss but even so an apology would have helped esp as serious injury could have resulted.
High quality food and service
Too many stairs and no lifts--difficult if one has any disablement--no advance warning of this
Lovely location, pleasant staff
Long walk with steep staircase to bedroom, also room right next to boiler, which started up very early morning, just trying to get back to sleep when delivery lorry turned up to offload not happy with that
Food was excellent
bedroom was very warm
Food excellent and staff were very friendly. Loved clean towels twice a day
Being charged £9 odd for coffee after a meal which was not very good anyway
