A stay at Swan Hill Hotel was booked for me as a birthday gift by family in order to enable us to go over to the River Cottage HQ for a meal. While the meal was brilliant, a night away at Swan Hill Hotel was the best part of the gift.
On arrival we were ushered into the sitting room for gorgeous home made tea and cakes before being shown to our room, which was just lovely. We had the flamingo paper room - can't remember the number, a double ensuite room. We had tea and coffee making facilties with real milk - in a little bottle in the mini fridge and home made gingernuts that made your mouth water for more.
There was no bath but we had the most fantastic power shower in a spangly clean bath room with high end Elemis toiletries which was a nice little extra touch.
In the evening we realised we rather foolishly had not pre booked our taxi to River Cottage. Simon the owner made an emergency call to a mate who fitted us in to his schedule and saved the day, to be honest nothing was too much trouble, he even got another set of guests who were at RC the same evening to bring my "surprise birthday" cake up with them when my husband realised he had left it in the room.
Wonderful place, lovely people. Only wished we had stayed a bit longer..........
