What is it that is so special about The Swan? We just can't stay away and over 5 years returned and returned . Bibury itself has something to do with it .The little stream winding it's way enchantingly through the centre of the village, the old world thatched cottages, the trout farm and the Swans own gardens. This is the... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Bed comfortable,rooms lovely. Service very good. And food very very nice. Breakfast also very nice. Nothing to complain about. The little river that goes nearby is so peaceful and lovely too sit by. This hotel is very popular with all sorts of travelers. We had wonderful scones and clotted cream. The staff... More

I'd give it 2.5 if I could. We've been to the Swan a good few times having got married just down the road at Bibury Court. On the plus side...the Swan is a lovely place and one of my favourites to go and drink in. The gardens are stunning at anytime of the year. The bar area is the perfect... More

My Daughter bought this for my wife and I as a thank you and we really enjoyed it. The service was good and the cream tea was superb with all three parts - sandwiches, the scones cream and jam and the cake together with plenty of good tea. Thoroughly recommend it

We were welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. Our room had very smart décor, a comfortable bed and a roomy bathroom. Food in the evening was good and nicely presented. There was a choice of bar meals or restaurant service. A very good continental buffet breakfast, plus good cooked breakfast if required.

Myself and my husband stayed for a wedding, we arrived early to get the most out of our stay and was lucky enough to be able to check in. We had a small lunch of sandwiches which was lovely. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable. The setting is fantastic and we will definitely be back to stay to visit the... More

Prior to doing a circular walk through the Cotswolds we fortified ourselves with a coffee. Coming in through the garden to the bar in our clean discrete walking boots, we were served quickly and in a very friendly manner. But the real clincher was our friend arriving a few minutes later with her dog. The dog was spontaneously offered water... More

We took my elderly mother to lunch at the hotel yesterday and can honestly say that it was the worst meal I have eaten out in a long while. Tasteless, watery prawn cocktail, boring shared meat platter with an extremely strange tasting scotch egg on it. Very disappointing - we are locals and used to enjoy eating there. Give it... More

Wow! We stayed at this hotel as part of a wedding party. It is chocolate box perfect through and through. The rooms bring a new meaning to luxury. The breakfast was beyond mouthwatering. The staff were all very accommodating. The gardens and surroundings are spectacular. If you are looking for luxury in a truly English setting, tjis is your hotel.... More

I didn't stay at the hotel so I cannot comment on that but I can review it in terms of somewhere to pop into for a drink/afternoon tea along the river. I was disappointed when I tried to order a drink - I wanted to order a 'vanilla latte' however they didn't have any syrup flavours for the lattes. Not... More
