Settle in for a cosy stay
The Swan Hotel has been a safe haven for Alton's visitors for centuries, first opening as a coaching inn way back in 1777. You'll still spot plenty of period charm throughout its interiors, as well as ample mod-cons to help make your stay as comfy as possible. Check into one of 46 bedrooms which all feature elegant furnishings, beautifully tiled en-suite bathrooms, and handy amenities such as tea and coffee-making facilities.
There's a mix of single, double and superior rooms to choose between, each one benefiting from soft beds, high-quality linens and wonderfully fluffy towels. Did we mention the Swan Hotel is dog friendly? Simply tell the hotel you're staying with your pooch when you book and you'll be placed in one of the hotel's plush pet friendly rooms. Getting to the Swan is super simple too, with Alton rail station just a short stroll away and free parking located behind the hotel.
The market town of Alton is one of Hampshire's most historic destinations, particularly for those who love literature. Take a trip to Gilbert White's House in Selborne to discover more about the famed 18th century naturalist or venture to Jane Austen's House on Alton's outskirts to see where she spent the final eight years of her life. The grand Elizabethan Chawton House is also well worth a wander, while there are plenty of scenic walking trails in the enchanting Alice Holt Forest.
