In line with government guidance, the Swan Hotel is now open.  New measures have been introduced in response to COVID-19.  Please visit for up to date information.
From the middle of the 18th century, the Swan was the principal coaching inn of the town. This Grade II listed building offers 22 well appointed en-suite bedrooms.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar area were totally refurbished in 2013 with the rooms in the annexe all refurbished in Spring 2016 and upgraded to deluxe.  These bedrooms   offer a warm rustic feel with impressive robust ‘Chunky Monkey’ free standing furniture made from the best reclaimed wood.  There is contemporary flooring, each room being of comparable design with its own personality via colour themes and drapes using beautiful wool fabrics.

The piece de resistance is the Manor Suite.  Away from the main hotel, it boasts a four poster bed, his and her hand basins and a hand crafted copper double ended freestanding roll top bath.

The classic rooms in the main hotel which are due to be refurbished in 2017 all offer good value for money with en-suite shower, flat screen TV, direct dial telephone with wake up call option and tea and coffee making facilities, allowing guests to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay.

There are two family rooms, one with a double bed and two single beds, and one with double bed and bunk beds, and one room in the annexe offering wheelchair access and wet room. The hotel has no lift but ground floor rooms are available. Please ask on booking.

The Swan Hotel offers guests free wifi (The Cloud) with access available throughout the hotel.

The restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast, morning & afternoon tea, lunches and dinner for both residents and non residents. Sunday lunch with a choice of three roasts is priced at £11.50 for one course.

The Swan Hotel’s below-ground function room, The Undercroft, provides a delightfully unusual setting for meetings and special occasions. With a private bar, catering and a conveniently central location it is an ideal venue for wedding receptions, parties and conferences.

The hotel has several areas for both residents and non residents. The Snug provides a more intimate setting for coffee, cakes and conversation. The formal dining room is elegantly decorated and furnished for fine dining, and the Watercress Room is light, airy and spacious – ideal for families wishing to enjoy a get together.   All rooms can also be used for functions – parties, family reunions, wedding receptions, conferences or presentations.
