We have just returned from a 3night break at Swinton Park and this was our first visit. The hotel is located in its own very large grounds complete with a herd of deer and plenty of areas for walking. As the the hotel was once a stately home the rooms are large and the dining room is very impressive whilst... More

This was our first stay at Swinton Park and I don’t expect it to be our last. The imposing castle look of the building certainly makes an impression as you enter the gate and drive in. We stayed in one of the Dukes room named Fountains Abbey which overlooked the lake and deer park to the left. Lovely large room... More

Swinton Park is beautiful, the building and grounds are perfect. The service on arrival was exceptional and due to early arrival we were shown to the drawing room with a glass of prosecco, where we would be collected when the room was ready. It is the attention to detail that this hotel is lacking, actually being left for over an... More

Staff were very attentive and treated the children as mini guests, providing them with their own welcome gifts. Although we could not take our meals together in Samuel's restaurant because we were too large a group the... More

Swinton Park is a very elegant Hotel surrounded by fabulous parkland.Our bedroom was very comfortable ,and the views from our window were superb. A lovely place to stay for a special occasion. Did think the downside was the price of drinks.

When entering the driveway you can't help but be impressed. The deer park to the side of the drive and the old house looming above you is great to look at.

A very special place where the first impression stays with you. The grounds and buildings are impressive with dozens of deer grazing alongside the river as we drew nearer. Two staff waited at the main arch where they took our luggage to the room and parked our vehicle allowing us to enjoy a glass of complimentary champagn before our afternoon... More
