I was looking forward to returning to the White Swan - this time to try out the George Suite. First impressions were again very favourable - the room is magnificently appointed with a large lounge/dining space set out with traditional English style furnishings. However the experience was rather ruined by the amount of noise we had to suffer there. Every...

For a 70th birthday treat for our friend we thought we would book two nights at the White Swan Hotel in Greytown in the Wairarapa. Close to Wellington with a scenic drive over the Rimutakas to get there. Two nights spent at the hotel with 3 relaxing days filled visiting Masterton shopping, golfing and Martinborough for dining and shopping. Toured...

I booked the Madison suite for a night for our wedding anniversary. The room alone is normally $285 a night so I opted for the package deal of $399 which includes 2 200ml bottles of Wine, a 3 course dinner for 2 and breakfast. Upon arrival first impressions were quite positive. The room is large and has a nice big...

I've never stayed here, but would love the opportunity. I've visited numerous times when over this way and enjoyed a wine on the verandah under the warmth of the sun. It is a lovingly restored building and has an interesting history having been moved onto the site in more recent times. Have also lunched here on several occasions and found...

We used a voucher brought on a discount website for this night away so paid half the usual price. This made it excellent value for money. The George suite is wonderful with period furniture. Doors open onto a balcony receiving both morning and the afternoon sun. The bed was comfortable and bathroom large with both a bath and shower.

Had a table in the bar area which was a bit noisy as a pre-wedding group on one side. However the meals were nicely presented - pork belly was very tasty, fish & chips looked good but fish not so good. Service was good but perhaps expected a bit more from such a well known establishment.

I stayed here on the first night of an organised motorcycle trip. The room was well furnished and comfortable although the bathroom is best described as functional rather than luxurious. I can't comment on the value-for-money aspect of the hotel as the accommodation and meal costs were bundled into the cost of the tour. For this reason, I have only...

We spent one night here in a comfortable, clean and attractive room. However, we felt the hotel was well overpriced for the level of service. $165 for a double room seemed too much given that breakfast was not included, wifi was an added extra and TV channels were limited. More disappointing however, was our dinner, especially in view of favourable...

We stayed at The White Swan after completing a four day bike trip from Wellington over the Rimutakas and into the Wairarapa. The rooms in the hotel all have a theme and are tastefully decorated. They are also incredibly spacious. The group really enjoyed the stay here - a bit of luxury at the end of the trip. We also...
