As graceful as the bird it’s named after, the Black Swan Hotel in Yorkshire has stood for centuries as a landmark of warmth and hospitality for travellers journeying through this beautiful corner of North Yorkshire. Set in the picturesque market town of Helmsley, The Black Swan, once a traditional coaching inn with a history dating back over 500 years, is now a stylish boutique hotel.

With its recent refurbishment, the hotel combines a collection of country chic style throughout its lounges, Cygnet Bar, tearoom and restaurant that carefully complement the history associated with this prominent hotel, blending antiques and artwork with classic contemporary design.

The Black Swan has forty five beautifully designed and individually inspired bedrooms. The bedrooms too complement the hotel in elegance and style. All our bedrooms are en suite and come with thick snug duvets, warm homely furnishings, soft fluffy towels, luxury Molton Brown toiletries, Freeview flat screen televisions and Sky sports channels, and your own tea and coffee making facilities.

The hotel is also home to two fabulous dining experiences; The Gallery, our 3 AA rosette fine dining restaurant, and the popular Black Swan Tearoom, and offers a selection of private dining rooms for special events and functions.
