Positive Reviews

Hotel has a Cosy Old-fashioned Feel

White Swan is tastefully decorated in old-world fashion. Despite tthis, the amenities and services are modern. Guests reported that spacious rooms are immaculately clean with comfortable beds, a large bathroom with an excellent shower and a warm and quiet environment.

Staff goes Above and Beyond for Guests

Not only are staff members friendly and inviting, they do a lot of little extras that go beyond the call of duty. Some guests have reported that staff spoiled them during their visit by parking their car and ensuring that it was out front when needed, carrying baggage to rooms, bringing extra comfort items without being asked and being available to help when needed.

Fantastic Breakfast with Fantastic Service

The breakfast provides everything guests need to get a great start for the day. The food is plentiful, well-prepared and there are lots of choices including cereals, breads, fresh fruit and cooked items.

Negative Reviews

There is a lot of Noise Around the Hotel

Guests reported that the noise from a nearby night club can be heard and it continues through the night and into the morning. Loud music, the sound of people talking loudly on the street and partiers returning after a night out are among the sounds guests reporting hearing.

Guest Rooms are Shabby and Dated

The decor in the guest rooms is old-fashioned and the overall condition of the rooms calls for some renovating. Guests have reported old and uncomfortable beds, tattered carpet, unclean surfaces, a lack of necessary amenities and poor water pressure in the shower.

Lack of Quality Food Items at Breakfast

Breakfast is rushed and poorly prepared. Guests have reported receiving watery, soggy and partially cooked items and there isn't much to choose from. Also, the breakfast room is very small and hot and gets crowded in the mornings.
