We stayed for three nights in Vole (room 4) and it was excellent. On the first night the hotel was very busy with a wedding on and the service at our meal was a bit slow, but the food overall was very good and the room excellent. The village is also a must see!

We stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and were absolutely delighted with the standard and quality at that visit. When we decided to go to the Cotswolds for a visit we naturally decided to return to The Swan. We were very disappointed with the down turn in this hotel. The fine dining has now become a brasserie. This is... More

Called in here on a sunny Sunday when Bibury was as usual busy with tourists, decided to stop for lunch as just collected one hungry son from nearby event. Staff mixed nationalities and very helpful, wine list fairly extensive although I caused some confusion asking for a red Zinfandel, delicious when arrived. We ordered a sharing fish platter at £20...

My boyfriend brought me here for my 30th birthday, he paid a premium to have a beautiful room with jacuzzi and a 3 course meal. I was really impressed with the standard of the room and the quirky features. Wasn't so impressed with the dinner. As lovely as the hotel is, next time we look to spend that much, we... More

Soup had no promised bacon so was bland. fish of the day came on soggy lettuce, no potatoes and wrong bland white sauce. Couldnt eat it. Seemed manager was doing food in kitchen as... More

Just sublime. Put simply, The Swan Hotel compliments what is a truly stunning village. Tucked into the bar menu, the service was excellent, the food served promptly, the quality was top-notch. Very reasonably priced too. I look forward to returning.

Having been to the Swan multiple times for evening drinks - a close friend and I decided to have a meal in the bar one evening as an early birthday treat! It took a little while to arrive but when it did - it looked beautifully presented.It has to have been one of the best steaks I have ever eaten!... More
