Fantastic location staff all helpful, room great , you have trouble faulting this venue, been 3 times this year for short breaks ever time been excellent .
Only point shower in our room had no power to it
The location was lovely the property was beautiful the staff were very pleasant.
The room we stayed in was covered in dog hair absolutely everywhere, we informed the staff which they very promptly cleaned and we received a bottle of champagne as a apology. That was a very nice gesture but to pay over £700 to stay for two nights that is totally unacceptable, on our departure I spoke to the manager about our experience and he didn't seem bothered as he took my money. I also informed him about the outside seating area which was also covered in dog hair but again no response . We have stayed at Swinton Park many times but sorry guys never again.
I went for a relaxing and indulgent castle stay and that's what I got. The room was fabulous. The staff so friendly. The extra's offered (for a price) were brilliant. I took my friend for Afternoon Tea - a first for her - and it was perfect. I also did the full day Birds of Prey experience and as I was the only one that day, I got to fly so many of the birds. A fantastic experience. The cooking Masterclass was also a barrel of fun. I couldn't get a booking for the massage I wanted but did enjoy the shorter one available.
Hard to get a booking for the spa for what I wanted. I should have booked much earlier. Fair enough because the spa is available to people not staying as well but I was a bit disappointed to miss out.
it is located in a big park, deer is just around you, actuallly which is not, but you can get very close to them.
actually, the building and rooms are really old and refurbishment is needed
The restaurant was excellent, very tasty. Staff in restaurant and spa were very polite and friendly. Comfortable room and beautiful, picturesque surroundings.
Reception staff not particularly helpful. On arrival the porter advised us to make a booking at the restaurant for our evening meal. On doing so we were told there was no space in the only restaurant on site that day and offered no alternatives, which was not ideal with a hungry 2yr old. Offering no children’s food on the room service menu, we again pleaded with the receptionist to double check with the restaurant for a space. We were squeezed in, thank goodness, but a very stressful situation for our one night family getaway! We were also not advised at booking that children are only allowed in the pool area during two allocated times per day. We had decided to splash out on a luxury 5 star hotel with spa and beautiful food so we could enjoy the facilities. Had we have known this we could have chosen a hotel better suited to our needs as a family. As a pregnant guest we also requested decaf tea, it never arrived.
