Friendly local hotel.
Posted Oct 29, 2012
Fantastically friendly hotel - we arrived after 9pm on Friday night to find that the hotel no longer served food, but the landlord said that it wasn't a problem, we could choose from five different takeaway menus and he would have the food collected for us. We had a table set for us and enjoyed our takeaway. We were served with beer and wine as though we'd been in our own home, and the landlord & his wife were attentive and very friendly.
Breakfasts were cooked to order, fresh and hot. There were no strict rules about checking out, and we were able to meet friends and return to check out after midday.
The rooms were warm and clean, big towels and a hot shower (although the water pressure wasn't up to power shower standards).
The Swan definitely isn't a luxury 5* hotel as defined by the big chains, but we would much rather stay somewhere like this - clean, warm, very friendly and relaxed.
