                  8.2

                  Very pleasant staff who were very helpful and had a good relationship with the customer. All our needs were satisfied and the inclusive breakfast was varied and there was plenty to eat. The Hotel's parking arrangement with the local authority made it so much easier and trouble free to leave the car at the rear of the Hotel without fear of receiving any parking penalty. I would not class this Hotel as a 'Back Packers' hotel. It was an old English Inn style and therefore not upmarket by the nature of the building but it had character and seemed to be very popular with the local town folk who used the restaurant facilities as non staying guests.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Even though we arrived very late in the evening we were still told that we could order an evening meal (as long as we were quick to decide!)

                • Group of friends
                  10.0

                  Friendly, courteous staff; clean spacious single room, comfortable bed, clean bright bathroom, excellent food remarkably good value, fantastic breakfast, bar open late for residents with meals until 10pm.Double glazing kept out road noise. Informal laid-back atmosphere. I went to walk the Hangers Way from Alton to Petersfield. I will certainly go back to this hotel, and recommend it to friends.

                  The carpets were not to my taste, but so what? Cancellation policy as stated was draconian but fortunately I did not need to test this in practice.

                  Promt service,friendly welcome.

                  I found the room clean and the staff were as helpful as possible.

                  We found the service in the morning slow and had to ask to order breakfast. Our evening meal was over cooked and they did not give us the sauce with meal until we asked for it and then they only brought it for one of the meals.

                • Single
                  6.6

                  Cheap and cheerful. A little bit tatty in places but clean and good location.

                  Could do with sme work - overly squeaky floor boards and worn carpets. Bed comfy though.

                  The Jane AustEn Suite very comfortable marred by poor TV, u/s radio, small bathroom especially wash-basin.

                  Friendly people

                  noisy main street late at night, but that's hardly the hotel's fault!

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  the food was good

                  i think it needs updating as there was no sink in the toilet, the cot bed was not very sturdy and the floor was skreaking.

                • Group of friends
                  6.6

                  The location was great. Alton is a lovely town and the Swan is in keeping. It is very well furnished and spacious. It has a pleasant atmosphere and a nice bar area

                  We were told that breakfast was at 7am, but it didn't start till 8 and there was no-one to check us out at 7am.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Nice warm reception. Beds beautifully made up with crisp white linen. Food reasonable and reasonably priced.

                  Hotel would be more classy without fruit machines in the bar and rather garish signs (could be more subtly written) Bathrooms could have more goodies and not just a bottle of shampoo.

                  Its a really nice hotel with superb breakfasts.The staff are very helpful and charming

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  The Swan was very comfortable and suited our needs.

                  It took a long time to book in especially as we were't familier with the practice of holding money on a credit card in case you have extras from the hotel. Having already paid for the rooms it seemed unecessary to put more money on a card just in case and we were told it could take up to 10 days for the money to go back into our account!

                  need much better lighting in room as very dark & dingy
