Here's what they say

We asked recent Brides and Grooms about their wedding experience at The Old Swan, and this is what they told us...

Myself and my husband would like say a big thank you to all the staff at the Old Swan for helping to make the wedding day and evening run so smoothly. Many of the wedding party were there for the weekend and all had favourable comments to make.Special thanks to Gemma and Paula. Extra special thanks to Fatou you were amazing, very calm and organised with a great personality. I would have no reservation in recommending the Old Swan as a fantastic wedding venue from all aspects
Jayne Nutter ( mother of the bride) - Mike & Hayley 12/08/2017

We would be very grateful if you could please pass across our thanks and congratulations to all your staff for the excellent work they did and their contribution to what was a fantastic day at your hotel. Every encounter with your staff was met with a positive and helpful response. I would particularly like to thank Amanda on administration and Steve who looked after us superbly on the day. Please pass on our thanks also to your kitchen staff and particularly the chef on the day. The food was delicious and the tableservice professional and timely. We would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel as a wedding venue.
Holly and Richard Heighway – 30th June 2017

I just wanted to express how amazing our wedding was and to thank you both for everything you’ve done, it couldn’t have gone any better for us. The Garden Room for the ceremony and reception looked beautiful. It was pretty much exactly as I had imagined it to be. Sophie the preparation you worked through with us was so evident on the day, thank you for all your hard work, it certainly paid off and we were lucky to have you! The Garden Room in the evening was so pretty and made me feel unbelievably special.
Wedding of Emma Jodrell and Bhatti Wedding – 24th June 2017

Thank you so much for your hard work over the last 4 months, the day was extremely special and we both had so much fun! We have had nothing but great things said about the whole day by each of the guests and how much they loved the hotel and its vintage style which worked beautifully with our theme! The entire staff were excellent throughout the weekend and Steve was an amazing host, he is such a lovely bloke and both of you have made this experience so much fun organising. The room looked amazing both in the day and on the night. The pre-wedding dinners were wonderful and it was lovely to spend time with everyone in the library, the rooms were really nice.Thank your for such a wonderful experience and truly I wish we could do it all over again
Thomas and Sally Whittell – 30th April 2017

From the initial meeting all the way through to the day itself, the hotel and its fantastic team were incredible. Every suggestion was accommodated and welcomed. We had our 1962 Lambretta scooter parked up with us at our service in the Garden room. The vegetarian and vegan menus were bespoke and very tasty - as a veggie I was delighted to have as great a Wedding breakfast as all my guests. I am a detail merchant and everything on the day was followed to the letter and had been backed up with comprehensive meetings which meant I could really relax and enjoy the day without any stress or concerns.The hotel looks stunning, it has recently been refurbished and it really impressed us and all of our guests. I would not hesitate in recommending the hotel and in particular Sophie and Fatou. They really are fantastic at their jobs and regularly go above and beyond, I have never experienced service like it. We were treated like royalty.
Halliwell East Wedding – 2nd April 2017

Myself and David would like to say a huge thank you for helping us create such a wonderful day, we had an amazing time! We're exhausted and ready for our honeymoon, but it was everything we hoped it would be.
Deborah and David Hodgson 12th May 2016  

Yes, it was an absolutely amazing day! Thank you for all your help with making it happen. Fatou was amazing too. Everything in the room was set up just or better than I had imagined, the bunting and fairy lights in the garden room that Jon set up were truly spectacular!! Thank you for everything.
Katie Greaves 8th April 2016

We recently held our wedding reception at The Old Swan. We had a large number of overseas guests who were impressed by the history and character of the hotel. The Old Swan's wedding coordinator, Georgina, was excellent in the run up - very professional and organised. It was clear that the master of ceremonies, Matthew, is very experienced as everything ran smoothly and even better than we could have hoped for. The Wedding Breakfast food was great, the Garden Room - where the breakfast was held - was idyllic and flowed smoothly to the ballroom for the evening reception. Great location for Harrogate town centre, Valley Gardens and the Montpellier Quarter. We would highly recommend The Old Swan for wedding receptions.
Rebecca and Graham Smith 6th February 2016  

We wanted a wedding that was unique to us. Georgina the wedding co-ordinator at The Old Swan made that not just possible but happen. From our first meeting right through the planning and the day, nothing was to much trouble and anything was possible. On the day the venue was amazing. The staff were all absolutely fantastic. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves saying the food and service from the staff was first class. The whole event was stress-free and well-run, leaving us with nothing to do but enjoy our day and guests. The bridal suite was lovely and finishing touches added to the occasion. Our guests who stayed at the hotel enjoyed hearty breakfasts and their rooms were of a good standard. We would recommend checking this venue and meeting Georgina very highly. If you want your wedding day to be stress and hassle free, this is the place to be.
