I visited the Cotswold's 29 years ago, wanted to go back & remembered the Swan Inn. It has changed quite allot but I have to say they still know how to do inn keeping right! From the moment I checked in I felt welcome & at home & since I was traveling alone, loved the teddy bear so much he... More

We stayed at The Swan on a DB&B package for 3 nights having booked a deluxe 4 poster room (Dragonfly). The room was fantastic with a huge bathroom with a spa bath. Unfortunately the shower was not up to the standard we expected given this was a deluxe room. We mentioned this to the receptionist who promised to get it... More

This is not the first time I have stayed at The Swan so specifically asked for a superior room [by name] as it was a stay for a special occasion. Regretably when we arrived the room requested had not been booked by the receptionist and we stayed in room next door. Apologies from the management, glass of champagne and complimentary... More

Had an absolutely lovely lunch here whilst visiting village of Bibury. Most of us opted for the very well priced 3 course lunch. The food was nice, service was good, the treacle tart I had for dessert was delicious!! I'm still dreaming about it! It was actually the nicest lunch we had during our week long visit to the Cotswolds.... More

Shortly after settling down in the room (No 17) we noticed that it was nowhere near the standard we were used to previously at the Swan, so where do I start. 1. The carpet had many stains on it as did the chair and stool for the dressing table. 2. The valance on the bed was dirty and the pillows... More

We stayed at a The Swan for two nights, to enjoy both the village, and a trip to Westonbirt to enjoy the spectacular autumn leaf colours in the arboretum. All the staff were professional, efficient, and very personable, and most willing to help. We dined both nights in the restaurant, and enjoyed the meals. Breakfast each morning was a treat,... More

We ate dinner here one night. The menu was good, and the wine list fairly priced. We wanted to eat in the restaurant, but the bar menu & restaurant menu are different - so we ate in the bar. Very civilised, and quiet. The food was superb, and the atmosphere not pub like. The only thing we weren't so keen... More

We had a wonderful stay at The Swan. Arrived to shown to a beautiful bedroom and bathroom. Great little special features in the room. A little small. Perfect position. Food quite expensive which is a pity.
