Stayed for 2 nights in room 18, right at the end over looking the front, stunning views of this lovely little place, excellent food, service very good always polite and efficient. This is now the third hotel in the Cotswold chain we have stayed in and did not disappoint

A group of three of us came in for coffee and a snack lunch in the bar. I was not allowed any cake. They do not serve it at lunch-time. I was disappointed and thought it was a pointless rule - not customer-focussed.

Dined here last month, and found the overall experience extremely satisfying. After a relaxing walk down the river we arrived at the swan to a warm welcome from some of the friendliest staff I have experience in many years, I was particularly impressed with the young blonde waitress who looked after me and my husband in a personal yet professional...

We stayed for 2 nights and had a really great room. Huge bed and the biggest bathroom I've ever seen. The husband said you could play 5 a side footie in it! We didn't! Beautiful claw foot bath, lovely goodies to use and the softest towels I've had in a hotel in a long time. We had afternoon tea, the... More

We spent two night here and can't praise it enough. Our room was comfortable and beautifully decorated - a luxurious haven. The hotel is both stylish and cosy - just the place for a relaxing break. Wonderful food and service too.

This was a birthday treat from my husband. The location is fab in the heart of the Cotswolds with a great six mile circular walk starting from the Hotel via Coln St Aldwyn. The food at the Swan is great both at lunchtime and more formal dinner. The room was large, pretty and very comfortable.

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
