We had a lovely stay in Pickering at the White Swan on April 6th. We drank in the bar and ate a lovely meal in the restaurant. Staff were attentive and professional. The only downside was the breakfast, it could have been better but there was plenty on the plate.

As we had our dogs with us our room was in the block of 'chalets' at the back of the property. My husband had stayed in the main house when he was here for business and, to be honest, he had really enjoyed that stay more than this. Our welcome was warm enough but I was disappointed with the room....

Myself and partner stayed at The White Swan after booking through Secret Escapes. It really is a lovely hotel. The staff are amazing, very attentive without been over the top. We had only booked for one night but after having a look round we decided to book for a further night, which was absolutely no problem for the reception staff!...

A beautiful room that was cozy and modern. Lovely views onto The Bothy and blosson trees. The staff were friendly and attentive and you couldn't ask for more. The hotel was quiet and relaxing with quirky nooks helping to create a lovely atmosphere.

The White Swan is a very well run hotel. We stayed in a Hideaway room which was really quiet with garden seating outside. Very nicely decorated and well furnished. The hotel itself is very cosy. The food is superb, served in a lovely dining room which had lots of character. My husband said the fish and chips were the best...

The prospect of wonderful weekend weather prompted a last minute plan. Drove through sunny hills and dales to the seaside at Whitby prior to driving inland to the picturesque town of Pickering, renown for its access to the North York Moors Railway, a must see for all visitors. The White Swan is centrally located off the market place. Friendly receptionist...

What a lovely weekend, great weather (fortunate), service and food. Nice to have locally sourced food. Excellent wine list, not cheap but each was lovingly selected. Our room was very nice, other than the old folk upstairs who seemed to get up at 6.30am and take 2 hours to get ready. Thanks for looking after us, so friendly.

Stayed in room 19 in the stable block which was lovely, under heated flagstone floor, king size bed and a huge bath. Very friendly staff and excellent service. Dinner was all good except the steak which was overdone from the medium I asked for and a bit cold and tough. The onion rings were fried in not hot enough oil....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you at this proper family run Inn. Next year will be our 30th at The White Swan and we have just about got things organised. From the moment you walk through the doors you'll feel at home. We aim to keep things simple and just let you relax ...Tom Parker Bowles reckons 'Every market town should have a White Swan' and the Daily Telegraph described us as 'God's own Country Pub' on a recent visit. If you read the reviews here you will get a flavour of what we are trying to do. We are an Inn with a lovely restaurant and 2 rosette food but not the plastic fine dining you find in many four star properties. Real food, real people, lovely rooms and great value for money.And by the way if you are not delighted I will give you your money back so long as you tell us at the time.Victor Buchanan - Owner ... more   less
