We had a lovely stay here in this charming old hotel. The four poster bed in room 10 was unbelievably comfortable and we both slept very well. Rooms are very clean with polite, welcoming staff. Yes the floor boards creaked but this only adds to the experience of staying in an old building. We wouldn't hesitate in staying here again in the future.

We booked a week before we stayed and didn't know what to expect - it was a convenient location for a family get together so ticked the box. Boy were we impressed! It was really, really busy when we arrived, but we were shown to our room by a very pleasant member of staff. Our room 22 was out of the main building but it was spotlessly clean, cosy and the bed and pillows were so comfortable!!! Lovely bed linen too. We had booked a table for an evening meal and the fish and chips were the best ever! Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order and beautifully presented. Sunday morning Church bells added to the villagey feel.

Room Tip: Our room out of the main building overlooked car park but was not noisy

Excellent room with the bonus of being able to have our little dog stay, as this hotel have set aside couple of room for those who love to include their animals in their short breaks.
Room was brilliant. Crisp cotton sheets, feather duvet, really cumfy bed and tea-pig beverages.
Breakfast choices were amazing off the menu with loverly selection of cereals, yogurts and pastries.
All staff were smiley and helpful.
Loved our stay.
Highly recommend this traditional establishment.

After having had a bad experience at The Swan some 18 months ago and having spoken to the management, who assured me things were being put in place to redress all the mistakes, I am very thrilled to report that my family went back to The Swan on Saturday evening at the weekend. Indeed even the atmosphere has changed, it was calm and welcoming in the Dining room and we had a lovely table close to the window which affords a lovely view if the high st. The service is still somewhat slow especially as we were the only family in the dining room but the waitress was polite and friendly and the food , hooray , was back to its memorable self. Starters were served promptly and were hot and tasty but the joy flooded back with the main courses. I and my daughter in law had the Sea Bass which was gorgeous and came with a superb sauce. My son had his usual beef burger with all the trimmings!!! He too reported that the taste and quality was back. The children (11& 13) had the toad in the hole and declared it fabulous. Garlic bread with cheese also got their vote as starters. All in all a welcome return to exemplary food and classy surroundings, just lets get that service up to speed .
Will definately put the Swan back on our must go to list again. Hooray.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The 16th century Swan has been welcoming guests through its doors for over 400 years, and was once a convenient resting place for those travelling the 200 miles from London to Chester. Today, our comfortable rooms and welcoming bar and dining areas mean that The Swan continues to be a haven for visitors from far and wide. A regular winner of the Best Kept Village award, Tarporley appears in the Domesday Book of 1086. Back then, Tarporley was home to just eight households, but today is one of the largest villages in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, with antique, curio, craft and fashion shops lining its streets. Some of The Swan’s most historic features are located in its Hunt Room, home to the Tarporley Hunt Club. Founded in 1762, it is the oldest in England. The club historically met twice annually at The Swan, with each meeting lasting seven days and the hunting taking place largely within the nearby Delamere Forest. In the founding set of rules, members were required to drink “three collar bumpers” after both dinner and supper, and, in the event of marriage, to present each club member with a pair of buckskin breeches. The Tarporley Hunt Club still meet once a year today, a quarter of a millennium after Obidiah Lane went hare coarsing with his chums and decided, after much merriment at the Swan, this should happen every year; “We shall meet for the purposes of general conviviality” he declared! ... more   less
