Swan & Royal

Traveller (18)
Room & Suite (3)
Dining (2)


The hotel reopened in September after a serious fire. The hotel is set in the centre of the historic market town of Clitheroe. The Swan & Royal a former coaching Inn dating back to the 1830's. In its early years as a hostelry, it boast guests both famous and some say infamous, in the local area and throughout the country. You can stay in rooms named after a selection of the most interesting of these people. During the day it is the ideal place to rest tired legs after walking round the market or the wide range of individual shops Clitheroe has to offer. At night it is a little more lively being in the centre of the town and it is also the centre of socialising. Weekends do get particularly lively with a disco till 1am of a Friday and Saturday evening.

Thank you for the enquiry, we were closed briefly some 5 years ago as a result of a fire but we are fully open now. I was not aware of this information on the trip advisor web site but I will rectify this and thank you for bringing the matter to our attention.
