We arrived at 1pm and were treated to very attentive staff. Even though the room was not ready, the receptionist tried to hurry things along. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were OK and on-par with a 2.5 - 3 star hotel. Some way above a premier lodge but not quite boutique luxury. Does the job, though. The sister...

I stayed for our 30th Wedding anniversary and it was such a beautiful place. Excellent views from our room overlooking the Trout farm and the river. Could just see the Arlington cottages too! Staff very friendly and professional, room was cosy and well supplied with refreshments and luxury toiletries. Delicious meal in the Brasserie too. Would definitely go back. Oh...

Stopped over for lunch during our day tour of Cotswold. Beautiful surrounding landscape & a very pleasant hotel covered in lovely creepers. Had the trout with cauliflower, broccoli and whole potatoes. The fish was way over cooked and left an unpleasant course texture & bland taste. Overall a very beautiful vintage hotel but the F&B section needs to be improved.

The Swan is a typical old Cotswold Hotel. We stayed in a "Garden Suite" which consists of ground floor Living Room with freeview TV, settee coffee table.. Upstairs large bedroom with TV & on suite. On suite has shower cubicle & bath. Good pressure to shower & plenty of hot water. Rooms clean & tidy. The bar & Brasserie border...

We decided to eat here as a change from the Catherine Wheel. We opted to eat in the bar as the menu is more extensive. We started with the chilli squid, but regretted it. It was rubbery (overcooked), and the next day we both had BAD tummies. This was the only food we shared in common, and I wondered if...

We visited the Swan in January for our anniversary and it was fantastic! It really is a beautiful setting and the hotels furniture and decor suited the picturesque village. We spent quite a bit of time in the snug where there was always a roaring fire and plenty of newspapers and magazines to read and it was a lovely place...

Beautiful Old Cotswold hotel. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. It was our Wedding Anniversary and we were given a card on entering the Restaurant and also had Happy Anniversary piped onto our dessert plates. Had a problem with our TV which was sorted immediately. Room very comfortable. We loved it.

Interesting, eclectic decor in the main rooms. Evening food was very good. Breakfast was good though elements of the cooked breakfast weren't all that great (some were re-heated and cooked in bulk). Staff were all very good. Amazing setting. Bed was a bit bouncy. Furnishings etc in the cottage very high quality.

We stayed for one night and were thoroughly impressed. All the staff were great, the hotel was very very clean, the room was spacious and quaint (we stayed in the bridal suite) and the bathroom was clean. The breakfast, lunch and dinner were all fresh and very tasty. Can't find anything to say to fault this place.
