Beautiful setting in a lovely part of the country. The spa was modern and facilities were good. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed both our eating experiences at lunch and dinner. All in all a very relaxing rural retreat to get away from the bustle of every day life!

Hotel was selected as part of our tour so we didn't select. Grounds are lovely and facility is attractive, however You need to walk the halls to gt to your room. Suggest you request room near reception. The room itself is ok, not terrific. The restaurant area is nicely decorated. Breakfast was good, had dinner one evening, but duck was...

This will be my last visit to the Old Swan at Minster Mill. My wife and I have been twice before but it was third time unlucky for my family and I. The hotel and grounds are still beautiful, with one or two minor changes since we last visited - the sung has been replaced with an alternative dining area,...

Beautiful surroundings, beautiful gardens, ideal tranquil location. Rooms small but clean and has all the facilities expected. Set in two buildings across the road. Not ideal in the winter or if raining as you cannot get to the bar/ restaurant from the mill side without going outside. Restaurant is nothing special. Food was ok on the Saturday night, but portions...

My 'superior double' had a single bed in it. I asked to be moved and the receptionist said 'sorry but we are full'. Ok I said, where's the double bed? 'Sorry, we have no more beds'. In the morning I was asked how my sleep had been. 'I didn't get any' I said, and the receptionist apologised but offered no...

We initially booked in February but had to move our booking a few times due ti sickness. When we eventually came we had a wonderful stay, the hotel is full of character and charm. Our room was cosy with lovely views over the thatched roofs. Great staff, clean hotel, lovely pub area. The food in the restaurant was just okay...

Stayed for just one night in this wonderful place. Beautifully nestled in the Cotswold illurious landscape. We really loved this. The hotel with its surroundings were just lovely. Love to come back and stay a little longer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An historic Cotswold inn and boutique hotel, the Old Swan & Minster Mill is privately owned by Andrew Brownsword Hotels. Set is the picturesque village of Old Minster alongside the River Windrush, the 15 bedroom inn is stunningly romantic. A further 37 contemporary guest rooms and suites are available in Minster Mill. Family rooms and dog friendly rooms are available. For those looking for more privacy and space, the adjoining newly restored Swan Cottage offers three ensuite bathrooms and a private garden. Dining in the 600-year-old inn feels like stepping back in time with stone floors, beamed ceilings, roaring log fires and delicious gastro-pub food based on fresh, local, seasonal ingredients with a modern twist. Over 65 acres of gardens and 2 miles of fly-fishing on over a mile of the River Windrush ensure a tranquil and picturesque setting. Children have a wealth of activities. There is a tennis court, badminton, gym, croquet, petanque and spa treatments available. Located between the medieval town of Burford and historic market town of Witney, the inn is a short drive from Blenheim Palace and Bicester Designer Shopping Village. Oxford is 20 minutes drive. Nearest train station Charlbury is 15 minutes by taxi. ... more   less
