Old Swan reserves the right to require payment of a deposit to a predetermined amount, as specified at the time of reservation to secure all bookings. In the event that a cancellation fee needs to be implemented, the deposit becomes non-refundable and will be set against the cancellation fee.

On arrival you will be asked to leave a pre-authorisation on a valid credit card. Pre-authorisations cannot be done using a debit card. If you wish to use a debit card full payment will be required at time of check-in.

The Old Swan recognises that pets are considered part of our guests’ family. The hotel is designated as pet friendly and welcomes dogs. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times when in the hotel or in the hotel grounds. Please ensure that you respect other hotel guests and “pick up” after your dog. There is a dog charge of £20 per dog, per night and this will be added to the final bill. We will provide a dog bed, water bowl and a dog treat on arrival in the bedroom.
Dogs are permitted, with their owners, into the bar area of the Old Swan where a snack menu is on offer. Unfortunately dogs are not permitted in the Restaurant at the Old Swan. Dogs are allowed to be left unattended in the bedroom but please make Reception aware when doing so.
Guide Dogs are exempt from the policy and will be accommodated in the Bar area only at The Old Swan.
