- A coaching inn with history: Located on the historic London-to-Manchester trading route, the charming Leicestershire town of Market Harborough has many a tale to tell. Much of the focus is on The Three Swans, a 500-year-old coaching inn that has played host to Charles I and, a couple of hundred years later, it was taken over by famous hotelier and restaurateur, John Fothergill - a friend of Oscar Wilde and artist Augustus John.
- Top-notch hospitality: Today, The Three Swans continues to treat its guests like royalty with exemplary service. Guest rooms are kitted out in restful neutral shades and offer thoughtful extras, such as tea and coffee facilities and bath amenities. For its many charms, The Three Swans was awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
- Hearty British classics: With a bright and airy dining room, the hotel's restaurant offers a menu of hearty British classics such as beer-battered fish and chips, roasted chicken supreme, bangers and mash, and sticky toffee pudding - alongside a number of international options. Fothergill's Bar, named after the hotel's former owner, serves up craft beers and locally brewed ales, perfect for a laid-back drink.
