I enjoyed a two night stay at The Swan for a wedding recently and loved every minute. The hotel enjoys a picture postcard setting next to the bridge and the river. It is very quaint and charming in the village. The entrance and reception are are all very warm and welcoming with log fires crackling away in most downstairs rooms....

Wonderful and charming English hotel in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. It's well located for exploring many of the towns and attractions of the Cotswolds. You couldn't get any closer (2 minute walk) to the famous Arlington Row, wonderful picturesque cottages built in 1380. I read somewhere that it is in...

We've got there on a weekend with a wedding on and didn't have any rooms available but we had dinner and I can say something: the food was the best I've ever eaten in a restaurant. So nice that we came back miles from where we sleep just to eat there again. And again it was impeccable. Village is amazing...

If you look for a comfortable place in the "Must see" of the Cotswold, and wish to stay in Bibury, this is THE place. Perfectly located in front of the central bridge, crossing the stream that must have been the bloodline of this old place. Of course, this unique mansion has great look, great place, great food and appropriate price....

I spent two very relaxing nights here with a friend. The fires were lit in the morning, making the atmosphere very welcoming, along with an outstanding team of staff. Excellent meals, comfortable beds and tasteful surroundings - we plan to return in the spring and we rarely choose to stay in the same place, so praise indeed.

Amazing place, location is beautiful, great food and friendly staff. I suggest to take the trout if you are having a meal at the restaurant, as it's freshly coming from the trout farm next to the hotel. Definitely recommended, one of the best hotels in Cotswolds.

We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us. The local trout is indeed delicious - our Head Chef takes full advantage of the fresh local ingredients the Cotswolds has to offer, so we're glad to hear that you enjoyed it! Thank again, Kate

Had a truly fantastic time at The Swan for a family wedding. I cannot fault this place or the staff, everyone pulled out all the stops to make the day, evening (and morning after) a great success. My thanks to all the staff but in particular to Charlotte, Dan and George, nothing was too much trouble....

I was on a tour to the area and we stopped here for lunch. It is a large (especially for the size of the town) hotel with inside and outside dinning right on the river in Blbury one of the fairy tale towns you see, but us Americans doubt really exist until we come here. The food and service was...
