        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We liked the atmosphere, particularly that despite being part of a larger company, it retained an individual look rather than being overly "badged" The staff were friendly and efficient.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Location good.

          The room was disappointing, rather tired looking and with only 1 bedside table. The bathroom was dated as was the decor of the room. Limited television channels.

        • Couple
          7.0

          Found the rooms very warm and would have been nice to have had a fan in the room.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          totally messed up with one of our bookings, gave us a tiny room while others in the same trip had much bigger rooms. But the staff was quick to relocate us to a room with the same standards as others.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          -friendly staff, great food, clean rooms, location...

          - unfortunately we did not have any hot water for showers in the time we were at the hotel as they were having problems

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Our room was very comfortable, the food was good and all of the staff were very helpful and polite. Nothing was too much trouble.

          The advertised log fire wasn't lit! - and though the hotel was warm, the weather conditions outside were dreadful! It would have added to the atmosphere!

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          I liked the comfort of the hotel. After a day in the mountains everything needs to be comfortable. For example: the chairs in the restaurant were very comfortable to sit on. There is nothing worse than when you are having a meal just wishing you could finish because the chairs are so uncomfortable. This was definitely not the case at the Swan!

        • Older travelers

          Traditional friendly hotel with good restaurant and facilities
