Welcome to The Black Swan Hotel

The Black Swan is a centuries old coaching inn, turned boutique hotel, situated in the heart of Helmsley, one of North Yorkshire’s prettiest market towns. This 45-bedroom hotel is smartly appointed, blending antiques with classic contemporary design and its varied exterior, complete with black and white timbers, plus Elizabethan and Georgian elements, portrays a rich history dating back to the 15th century. The Black Swan in one of Yorkshire's best wedding venues, offering a range of packages to suit every perfect day.


A stay here is time for you to unwind, savouring the enjoyment of your stay from the moment you arrive. The hotel has a fine reputation for food, with its award-winning tearooms,  and 2 AA rosette Restaurant which offers a selection of delicious menus created with fresh produce from the Yorkshire area, by Head Chef Paul Peters. And of course, no stay at the Black Swan is completed without enjoying the timeless ritual of full afternoon tea in the hotel’s award-winning tearooms (The Black Swan holds the coveted “Award of Excellence” from the Tea Guild, 2012 among its many national and regional awards).


A refurbishment in 2011 has ensured that all of the hotel’s bedrooms are individually styled and contemporary in design.  Many enjoy views over the picturesque market place, and others over the well-stocked walled gardens. The newly refurbished Cygnet Bar, a cross between a country-house lounge and a Thirties cocktail joint, also provides guests with a place to sit back and enjoy a single malt in front of a roaring log fire.  


To add to the relaxing benefits and enjoyment of your stay, spa treatments and packages can now be enjoyed in the luxurious and relaxing ambience of The Verbena Spa only a couple of minutes walk away.
