Visited pub on a previous stay and realised they offered accommodation, so next time I had business in the area booked up for two nights. Thinks overrun, so this turned out to be three! Rooms nicely decorated to a high standard, clean and comfortable. I can understand their reasoning for no TV's as the rooms aren't huge but suspect some...

Visiting the area and called in with friends, we enquired on the real ales which were from local breweries, the owner without being prompted gave us a taster of each, now that's what I call a personal touch, superb service excellent crafted cask ales and service second to none great place with lots of local ambience and good local beers,...

Stayed here for two nights after reading really good reviews of the Black Swan. It exceeded expectations. I have been to the pub on many occasions over the last few years but only just realised that it did accommodation and the accommodation was really good quality. It appears newly refurbished very warm very comfortable and cosy. It's evolved from the...

We were very pleased with our deluxe room (no 2) except there was no TV. Never thought to check that as never stayed anywhere with no TV. But Jill lent us a tablet to overcome the problem. A little bit of noise from dining room (private party) below but nothing to really trouble us.Location was great right on High Street...

I work in Pickering, and decided not to take the trip back to Leeds one night and picked the Black Swan.. great choice, as the room was cosy, the bed very comfy, and the host very friendly. The pub is also handy.. stocking a lot of local real ales.. I would come back again..

We stayed overnight before taking the steam train to Whitby. The hotel is conveniently place in the centre of town but with plenty of on-site parking. The staff are friendly, relaxed and well trained. Rooms were clean, simply but tastefully decorated and with plenty of space. We ate in the bar/restaurant which had a good selection of dishes and our...

Had a cycle ride at Dalby Forest and stayed over night in The Black Swan. First time stayed here. Room was very nice, recently decorated....only downside (which isn't a big thing) is that the mirror isn't near the electric socket so drying hair and straightening it was slightly awkward. The room was lovely, bathroom a nice size (room 2); we...

Excellent pub, great choice of well kept ales. Some of which are brewed on site. Friendly staff with good knowledge of the beers. Great atmosphere and very accommodating to our child...excellent changing facilities. I can't comment on the food as we didn't eat, but it looked excellent.
