We stayed here for 4 nights and the staff could not have been more friendly & helpful. The bedroom and en suite were spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with lots of extra touches which made it feel homely without being cluttered. The food in both the bar and the restaurant was excellent, and what a wonderful choice for breakfast!!... More

We popped in for food late sunday pm. Waited too long for hot drinks. Missing, cold and wrong accompanyment to 2 meals and cold veg with roast. Took the edge off what had been a lovely weekend in the area.

My husband and I have just returned from The Swan after a one night stay for my Birthday. In our opinion it is one of the best hotels we have stayed in and definately deserves the four star rating. When we arrived the lady on Reception was very friendly, asked about any special requirements we may have and then showed... More

We've stayed in other hotels from the Cotswold Inns group and The Swan has always been on our list to visit. It didn't disappoint! The staff were very friendly and helpful, even remembering I'd telephoned the night before to book a table in the restaurant. The room was comfortable and well equipped with all the usual facilities you'd expect from... More

We stayed here for a night on a Cotswold's roadtrip and it was amazing. The hotel is very charming and located across the road from a very picturesque river and trout farm. We had a delicious meal that was outstanding and really good value. My wife has a wheat allergy and the hotel was amazingly accommodating. The rooms are luxurious... More

I love the location of this hotel and my husband and I spent a very enjoyable Sunday night here. Food was good. Our room was a bit small but it was absolutely lovely. That was until Monday morning at 7 something. The gardeners turned on the leaf blowers and they made quite a noise when we wanted a wedding anniversary... More

Stayed at the Sawn for two nights and we were greeted by friendly receptionist. Our room was fine, I think in need of a spruce! Bed was really comfy & the hospitality tray full of goodies. The bathroom did need a good scrub, the shower screen was covered in black mold where the hinges are & the plug hole in... More

I had high hopes for the Swan as it had been recommended by a friend. We stayed for 3 days between Christmasand New Year, which may have had some impact. The hotel looks good from the outside, but is tired on the inside. I don't enjoy taking a shower with black mould and that was the first thing that put... More
