Just visited The Swan for Sunday lunch for the first time after its refurbishment. Visually done to a very high standard, beautifully decorated and well laid out. It was very busy and the staff were accommodating, but the meal was distinctly average. Menu used stereotypically 'high class' language such as 'confit of mushroom burger' which was basically slices of mushroom...

We popped here for a quick drink sitting outside near the water. My husband went in and ordered our drinks. He asked for a double gin and tonic.

We stayed in one of the self catering apartments behind the hotel, but with use of their facilities. It was beautifully decorated and equipped, and suited our requirements perfectly. We were a 3 generation family party, celebrating special birthdays, and it was just right. The children could play in the well equipped playground within view of the apartment, while we...

Two glasses of wine has just coat me £24.50 not a happy Easter bunny. We called in for a quick drink with a view to coming back in the evening for a meal. Don't think I can afford it now after paying that much. Absolutely disgusting

We stayed for one night with our 8 yr old son in the Beatrix suite - so separate room for our son which had twin beds in it. The food at lunch, dinner and breakfast was wonderful. The staff were amazing - really friendly and helpful. The hotel has an indoor pool (10m), an outside play park and a nature...

We booked a few days away and we're delighted from start to finish. We were impressed with the quality of the accomodation, the food and the friendliness of the staff. The hotel is in a great location for walks in the countryside and we came home feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Yet another fabulous stay at this beautiful, relaxing, family friendly hotel. Staff are excellent, food is lovely, hotel itself and surroundings are fabulous. Lots to do nearby should you feel the need to venture out. If you're thinking of booking, just go for it, you won't be disappointed!

An absolutely fantastic hotel. The decor in Reception, bar area, restaurant right through to the 'fabulous' bedrooms is beautiful. Had a hot stones treatment in the spa which was lovely and relaxing. Booked the restaurant one night which had a great atmosphere and lovely food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the picturesque River Leven at the southern tip of Lake Windermere, this 17th-century coaching inn is full of character and charm, but also offers well-equipped rooms, first-class leisure facilities and a fabulous ESPA spa. Enjoy the cosy, traditional lounges with roaring log fires, sample a unique local ale and enjoy a first-class dinner from the extensive hotel menu. The chef makes a point of finding the very best natural ingredients from local sources. If you're planning on a family trip, you'll find that The Swan has excellent facilities for children. Whether it's books and toys available in the library, a special restaurant menu or the complimentary milk and cookies served up at bedtime, younger guests are well looked after. Of course, there are many opportunities for them to play too - both in the hotel's 14 acres and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Whatever the reason for your trip, business or pleasure, you can be sure of the warmest of welcomes and will have the perfect base for exploring the wonderful beauty of the Lake District. ... more   less
