Old Swan

The Old Swan is a superb dog-friendly hotel and one of the most famous in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. With a history going back nearly 200 years, The Old Swan was once the tranquil haven that the mistress of crime-writing, Agatha Christie, famously disappeared to in 1926.

Situated in the heart of the town, this hotel is the perfect location for a getaway with your four-legged friend. Stay in one of the superb bedrooms, combining Victorian splendour with elegant contemporary style. Enter through the revolving doors and saunter into the famous glass-ceilinged Wedgwood Restaurant for a delicious meal or visit the Swan Lounge and Bar for a sumptuous Afternoon Tea - perfect for a special occasion or simply, just because! The hotel is surrounded by luscious lawns and gardens, perfect for your canine companion to roam, sniff and play! Ideally located just five minutes from the Harrogate town centre and train station, there is much to do on the doorstep! Visit Beningbrough Hall and enjoy leisurely strolls through its eight-acres of beautiful gardens or for further exploring, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is the ultimate playground for dogs. You can dine with your pooch in the main bar area, or if you fancy venturing out for some food, we recommend The Alexandra, Major Toms Social, Harrogate Tap and The Old Bell Tavern which all welcome pets. The gorgeous gardens surrounding the hotel offer pets the chance to roam, sniff and play.
