Positive Reviews

Five stars for customer service.

Former guests have commented that the staff at the front desk were very responsive, attentive, accommodating and welcoming, highlighting they received nothing less than a first-class service. Best of all, they've been very impressed with the competitive rates for their stay.

Dream Location.

For that all inspiring relaxing break, guests have had no difficulties in immersing themselves in treatments the hotel has to offer. The room was so well-facilitated, that they felt relaxed and comfortable. They also commented on the charming characteristics of the period décor being exceptional and very warm and welcoming.

Spoilt for choice.

What can only be described as first class leisure facilities, the Swallow Thainstone hotel and spa has a wealth of pampering treatments. Guests have been blown away by on by countless indulging treatments, particularly the massages, spa treatments and the well-equipped gym.

Negative Reviews

Not up to scratch.

Guests noted the delivery of service, especially in the breakfast lounge, was very slow, unprofessional and overall a disappointing experience. Guests found that the breakfast menu lacked variety and hot beverages were often served lukewarm. Some guests found that some staff lacked direction and seemed disorganised, providing a sluggish service.

Boxed in.

Majority of guests have complained that the room sizes were too small and went on to say it wasn't great value for money. The double rooms are somewhat overpriced and the standard room beds are small. Although cleanliness was never in question, the room size was certainly an issue.

Extortionate costs.

Some guests were dumbfounded by the expense of dinner menu as this was poor value for money. The cost that guests expressed as the final nail in the coffin was a £2 charge for debit card transactions.
