Stayed here for 3 nights with our 11 month old German Shepherd puppy.Staff very friendly and welcoming, nothing too much trouble, had table set in lounge so that we could have our meals with our pup, understandably dogs not allowed in dining areas. Found hotel to be very well situated in the centre of Alnwick, room clean and comfortable, highly...

The White Swan is a special hotel, steeped in history and noted as being one of the top hotels in Alnwick. The Olympic Suite is a great restaurant with the special wonder of dining within the actual ship wall and ceiling. The atmosphere reeks of stateliness and nobility. To get to the room through that leads to disappointment when it...

I've just had the best weekend I've had in years at the White Swan Hotel. I'd been looking forward to travelling here for as long as I can remember with me being fascinated with the Titanic. I made the booking for myself on Booking.com and my parents stayed on a Virgin Experience voucher. I made a mistake adding my dinner...

The hotel commands an excellent position on Alnwick High Street (Bondgate Within) and provides quick and easy access to the town centre shops and restaurants and also to Alnwick Castle and Gardens. The hotel has a small car park with limited spaces. During our three day stay I was able to find a parking space on each day. There is...

On a one night stop heading North we chose the Swan. Hotel Car parking is limited, if you pop into reception they will give you a disc for on street parking, 2 hours, the restriction ends at 6.00pm and starts again at 8.00am. Access to the hotel is via revolving doors so be careful if bringing large suitcases. The room...

The room was comfortable but the bathroom was awful. Filled the bath only to see debris coming up from the plughole which was because of a blocked drain. It was 10pm at night and the reception stated that as it was a maintenance problem there was nothing to be done to sort it out at that time. I was offered...

Stayed here back in 1998 and finally made it back this April. The hotel is a good central location in Alnwick. There is no station in town, Alnmouth is a £15 taxi ride away so make sure you have some money with you. There isn't a taxi rank I could find at the station so prebook one if travelling by...

We know this hotel very well (for eating in) but this is the first time we have stayed here as residents. The hotel is extremely well located right in the heart of Alnwick town and so within walking distance of the shops and tourist attractions. The overall ambiance is excellent, and it is of course noted for its Olympic Room...

Visited over Easter for a family wedding and took the dog. The hotel staff were very friendly. The rooms although not massive had all essentials needed. The beds very comfortable and the shower very powerful. The dog had treats left in the room. Overall a very nice experience

The White Swan is great value for money. For a mere £109, we got put in the Bamburgh Suite, had a divine three course dinner, breakfast and afternoon tea in the Olympic Suite. All staff were really attentive and friendly, making it a great stay. The room was very clean and luxurious for a 3* hotel, easily making it a...

All 57 bedrooms are designed to an impeccable standard, and Hardy's Bistro, our contemporary, informal dining experience, is open all day for coffee, light lunches and an excellent bistro menu.The perfect stopover en route to Scotland, we're also your base for discovering the famous gardens at Alnwick Castle, and a tour of the very best of the North East with its unspoilt coastline, historic castles and Holy Island, Northumberland National Park and the exciting cities of Durham and Newcastle.
