I haven't yet had the pleasure of staying at the old swan, but after a visit to the bar as a 'walk In' this could soon change. Upon walking into the bar area I was greeted with a warm welcome. Despite the bar area being clearly understaffed and relatively busy with what looked like afternoon tea, I think the staff...

We stayed at the hotel for four days, the general appearance of the inside is looking very tired but the staff did their best in most cases. The restaurant had the same menu for the entire stay. When I questioned this I was told that the Chef bought food in baulk and the menu wouldn't be changed until it was...

Old building with character, however some very poor workmanship in restoration. Bit shabby, there are much better 4* hotels in the area. I personally think Old Swan is nothing like we expect a 4* hotel to be, no mini bar, no luxury extras, not even cushions on bed, dirty kettle and shoddy repairs in bathroom. Receptionist was miserable and argumentative...

We booked the Library function room for our team of 10. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by John who checked our requirements for the day. The refreshments during the day and the lunch were served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Much to the delight of a member of our team they had decaff tea on offer.... no big deal...

There is limited car parking available for guests but make sure you request a parking permit when checking in. Will definitely be visiting Harrogate again and will stay at...

People often talk about going on holidays and telling you their horror stories about their stay. well this is my horror story. Arriving into the hotel, I went to reception to check in and get my keycard, I asked the person serving me about it being a quite room. "I don't know" was the answer I was given. Not the...

last June my daughter and i stayed in Harrogate to visit with my mum and younger brother. Mums house is too small so we stayed in The Old Swan for 3 nights. This is well positioned for all this spa town has to offer, it has dining on site too so if you like you do not need to leave....
