Just returned from an overnight stay at The White Swan Hotel. We stayed on the 25th November in room 6. We were instructed that our room, a double at £100 a night was along the corridor and through the door on the right. We set off to find ourselves back out of the building in the freezing cold trekking towards... More

My family stayed here July 2016 while spending a couple of days in Alnwick. Entrance, foyer, dining room and bar area were all great but the bedrooms in the back wing were run down and very ordinary. Felt like a shabby travel lodge. Breakfast however was pretty good and the restaurant a fun feature.

The crew of the White Swan were trying hard, and helpful. But the iceberg was the Alnwick Suite, our room, and the food! We have often wondered what really was the difference between 3 White Star OK and 4 White Star plus AA rosette superiority. We soon found out during our stay. Yes the dining room of the Olympic is...

Having booked and stayed many years ago I was most impressed by the dining suite, the Olympic Room. When the business meeting opportunity came up for us to stay in Alnwick I wanted to share the experience with my colleagues. What made it particularly good was the excellent service provided by the hotel staff who made every effort to facilitate... More

Dates stayed 19 Oct to 22 Oct 2016 (3 nights). This hotel has history. Our room was in the old part on the second floor with views to the rear over the Olympic Dining Room.

We stopped off here for a bite to eat while staying near Alnwick. It felt a bit like stepping back in time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the resturant was very pleasant. Bearing in mind we were quite late arriving the full menu was not available but the food we had was excellent and reasonably priced. It... More
