Very good 8.0
Old Swan looking more elderly!
Our stay was pleasant and the staff friendly and helpful. I have visited the Old Swan three times before over a number of years, the last time about 10 years ago. We were obviously given better rooms than this time! Room 236 is basic and bland and in need of urgent redecoration. The bathroom window in particular is a disgrace with peeling paint down to bare wood. Despite it being February the room was ove rhot and the radiator difficult to adjust. Bathroom and bedroom window left open to cool it down! I didn't take any photo's unfortunately!. The hotel generally is looking 'tired' . Perhaps it is due for a makeover?

Poor 2.0
Terrible hotel Terrible service
Room dated very noisy Saturday night as 2 functions running. When complained to reception we were ignored and told “well what can i do about it” no offer of compensation or the courtesy of a phone call to say that there was to be functions running. Other guests also complaining about the situation in the morning. DO not stay at this hotel if you want a relaxing wknd away always check to see if weddings or events are on. The hotel does nothing for the normal customer only wanting to make the events happy. Poor service and awful customer service.

Great Location
Much closer to town centre than I'd expected. Famous old hotel in the classic style. Bedroom and bathroom ok, great breakfasts. I wasn't expecting the £7 per night charge for parking but cheap for Harrogate and happy to pay for the convenience. Would stay again at the right price.

Exceptional 10.0
Another lovely visit
We have been to the Old Swan before and found it to be well positioned for exploring the town, but in a quiet area. I have seen comments where the rooms have been criticised, but people must remember this is not a Travelodge it has history and charm. Luckily on this occasion we were allocated the Agatha room and it was great. Would we go again certainly.

Very good 8.0
Overall very good. Lovely and very well located hotel. My bathroom was bigger than my bedroom but clean and comfortable. Great heritage. My room wasn’t ready on arrival (after official check in time) which was a little frustrating as we were going to a wedding but I’m a quick change artist so coped. The bar staff need training on how to make a martini though....!

Great location
Lovely period building with lots of character. Parking is £7 per night. Did not eat in hotel. Walking distance to Harrogate centre. Bathroom was very tired and not the cleanest. Room was spacious and had good facilities
