The Old Swan

In the heart of historic Harrogate

The Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate combines Victorian splendour with elegant contemporary style and is just a short walk from the town centre.

The hotel is packed with stunning period features, including revolving doors and polished wooden floors. In winter, you can cosy up in front of the roaring fire in the lobby. There are elegant reception rooms, including the magnificent Wedgwood restaurant, with its original glass ceiling, or the Swan Lounge & Bar, where you can relax with a drink or a snack overlooking the lawns and views of the town centre.

With 136 contemporary bedrooms and suites, The Old Swan is the perfect place to get away from it all.
