Local Businesses



We are proud to live and work in Hungerford and have pleasure in showcasing some of our wonderful local businesses.

The Three Swans Hotel

1st Direct have worked closely with The Three Swans for 9 years and during this time seen a lot of changes. Recently the hotel has been acquired by The Coaching Inn Group who are about to embark on a massive redevelopment and investment program which can only make this hotel better – Exciting times.

Three Swans

Whatever you are looking for it can be found at The Three Swans.

The hotel boasts 2 bars;

The town bar, overlooking the busy high street, why not sit in the bay window and enjoy a drink, or perhaps a cream tea and watch life pass you by. This bar is smart with it wood paneled walls yet relaxed at the same time.

The lounge bar, slightly more formal, yet far from stuffy, affords you the chance to unwind in the comfort of the leather armchairs and sofas, whilst viewing the beautiful artwork. This bar is also congenial to conducting less formal business meetings, with the benefit of the use of the free Wi-Fi which is throughout the building.

If it’s a more formal meeting the hotel has a separate function area, known as The Cygnet Suite. This can be booked by contacting the hotel, and can hold up to 50 people. Ideal if you have people coming from different parts of the country as the station is only a 2 minute walk and the M4 is only a 5 minute drive.

Why not call The Three Swans on 01488 682721 who will be happy to assist you, or advise you.

Well sort of, Diggy who has lived in Hungerford all of her life operates a pets taxi service, and a dog walking service. Her knowledge of dogs is second to none.

“So whether it is an appointment at the Vets or Dog Groomers we can transport your dog safely and securely in a variety of sized cages.  If you want to accompany your dog whilst it is being transported, then you can do so, although unfortunately we can only carry one human passenger.”

1st Direct are happy to recommend WaggaWoof
