Suite was excellent and worth the money
Invest in a sauna and steam room to go with your leisure facilities
Very small double room..bad service in restaurant..the woman who runs around at breakfast..waitress with glasses..is an accident waiting to happen..i have reported this on at least 3 occasions over my last few visits..to no avail!!
Stylish and comfortable
The bar area is gloomy and the staff were slow .
The general ambience of the hotel and its "country house" feel
I found the lighting in my room much to dim to read by - even in bed with the bedside lamp on. Using my cam in Skype was near impossible while sitting at the desk
Comfy bed, great location. They also had on a beer festival which was fantastic with a great carvery.
the location and style, I have stayed here many times before, but things have changed
the noise at night 415 am people arriving back shouting and doors slamming, then the security guard and his radio then dogs barking at 6 am absolutely no sleep also the parking is a public carpark and you might not get in
The staff were wonderful: attentive, helpful and charming
Nice location and good views from bedroom, extremely comfy bed and superb breakfast!
Cost of room service
I liked the room as it was comfy and a good size, also there was a kettle and hot chocolate with tea and coffee in the room the bathroom was clean and everything seemed to be okay overall.
The bathroom size could have been better also it was very humid and hot at night. The room location was vad as every 15mins the town clock went of and every hour it would wake either me or my partner up which was a shame.
The staff were excellent. The building is a interesting old property. Location on the river and at end of high street was ideal.
On Third morning the breakfast was not the best as buffet items had been in the latrines for too long and gone hard. Having said this if we had requested fresh brought to the table I am sure the staff would have accommodated.
Couldn't have wished for a better room in a top class hotel with an amazing ambience
The general ambience of the hotel, an air of old world standards with a hint of the modern. The pleasant staff. The comfortable room and the excellent breakfast Free Wi-Fi
The charge to Park - on top of rate for a premium room
Good hotel Location excellent by the river Restaurant was great
Room was at the back of the hotel with no view and a little warm
Very nice room and staff were all friendly. Lovely hotel
Excellent breakfast, room itself was very good
Unfortunately the room was located over the swimming pool so had very strong chlorine smell. A lot of noise early morning from motors/units(sounded like a washing machine was on a constant spin cycle!). Also the room was located end of corridor next to housekeeping office so lots if internal noise too!! A shame because everything was good. Don't stay in room 264!
Room was excellent. Breakfast delicious. Facilities very pleasurable.
No food on terrace on Sunday night. Happened to be our last night before leaving so wanted it to be special. This was only let down.
staff didn't hesitate to oblige.
The first room I had was noisy and had to be moved. It had an air conditioning unit outside the room in the corridor which vibrated through the wall and bed. It was also very small. The pool was very cold with a leaky pipe above.
Service: no porter to help with bags on arrival and departure; blocked washbasin reported on first morning but not attended to.
The quality of the bear in the bar was very poor
We were in Room 119 and the noise of people walking around in the room above us from 5.30 in the morning was not what we wanted....it was mainly a case of ' creaky floorboards ' but certainly was causing loss of sleep as also the corridor outside the room was very noisy around the same time until 7'ish.
I Stayed at the Swan September 2014. The service from start to finish was everything you would expect from a quality hotel. Cheaper that Premier Inn and a fantastic location all round 10 out of 10.
