The Swan Hotel is in the busy Main Street of Tarporley. A busy long established Hotel, it is beginning to show its age. A period building with all the peculiarities of age, for many visitors it would be quaint and engaging. As a single traveller the rooms are cramped, the ensuite facilities just accommodate my expanded body shape and overall require redecoration. The hanging space for my clothes were a series of pegs behind the door.

The title for my review is not a fault of the Hotel, but for anyone who is a light or troubled sleeper beware of the bells. The church clock strikes every quarter hour and then chimes the hour. Believe me if you happen to wake you will count every quarter hour until you are due to rise.

Aside from the cramped rooms, the restaurant service is okay, the menu has changed over the years I have visited, but competition within the street mean that the menu is restricted, the service is adequate to poor,and the food is not always best presented.

The hotel,has a car park to the rear. Space is limited and the spaces small access is tight and the entrance is not immediately visible. The alternative close by is street parking so you can be parking some distance from the hotel. To add insult to injury when I visited some of the parking had been given over to tables, for outside drinkers.

I understand that with a period building there are limits to what can be achieved, but given the area I am sad to report this is the worse hotel I go to with my work.

On arrival we had a very friendly welcome followed by a wholesome and filling lunch. Our room was large and snuggly - a very comfortable bed for us and plenty of room for our 6 year old. Breakfast this morning was VERY enjoyable - and extremely filling!

We had thought we would stay in central Chester but we are really pleased we didn’t. Tarporley is very picturesque. Thank you - we will be back again.

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
