all the staff at the Swan were gery helpful and friendly, food was excellent and rooms very comfortable. the only, minor, downside is the traffic on the road between the hotel and the river, and the poor WiFi

All rooms are located on the 1st floor with a small staircase leading up. Corridor to the rooms narrow and creaky but full of charm. Remember its an... More

Thank you for the lovely review. We really enjoyed hosting the wedding you attended, it was a lovely event and a great atmosphere. When there is a wedding on, they usually hire out all the rooms, so noise isn't normally an issue. I appreciate you kind comments. Liz More

My partner and I stayed overnight for early morning skydive at local airfield. We were met by a very friendly gentleman (didn't catch his name) who tended to our every need in the short time we stayed there. We had to leave too early to have breakfast which was disappointing, but we were given cereal and coffee etc to have... More

Just been there for lunch. Husband and son had carvary which was enormous and yummy and I had club sandwich which seemed a little pricey but was well worth every penny , a large portion! My daughter had fish fingers which was huge and pudding included. The best bit was the service. The waiter genuinely liked children and went that... More

The food was really nice. The service was acceptable bit could be more attentive The decor was dated though and didn't match the beautiful outside. I guess that from the exterior, which was nice, I was expecting more inside Thankfully the food wasn't disappointing

Just popped in for a cup of coffee and a break for baby, but ended up staying for a pudding too!! The cappuccinos were MASSIVE and sooo good (as an ex-barista, I'm particularly fussy!!) The menu said they do free refills as well!! The chocolate fondue was delicious - fruit was fresh and chocolate was perfectly melted. Really glad we... More

We highly recommend this hotel - especially for visitors to Stonehenge. Spacious quiet room with good bathroom. The staff were excellent and welcoming. Good setting alongside a river. Really convenient for travelling. The food for dinner was good and locally sourced. Great atmosphere in the bar.

Despite triple glazing it was still difficult to get a solid sleep. The advertised free wi fi was non existent. Ended up going back into Salisbury and found a brilliant Italian Restaurant where we were able to get free wi fi. Bathroom wasn't as clean as it should have been. Breakfast was just average.

I am very sorry you found your stay with us disappointing. As an old pub in a village location we are not everybody's cup of tea but we work very hard at our customer service. If your room wasn't clean enough, and the wifi was playing up, I can only apologise. Liz More
