Have eaten lunch twice at the Swan in the last week and each time have been disappointed with the food, very bland and pretentious. Bread was not served with starters or meals only with soup. The salad had no dressing on it, it was dry and tasteless. I was told it was a nice fresh salad and no one had... More

We visited the hotel for a wedding for two nights on the 5th and 6th of September 2014. We had a superior double room in the old building over looking the frontal gardens. It was a spacious, beautifully attired room, sadly let down to a minor degree, by a bathroom with un necessary little chips, paint issues and imperfections that... More

We had a overnight stay at The Swan in Bibury and a fantastic time. Room was spacious and the food and service in restaurant was first class. Thank you to all the staff at The Swan for making our trip one to remember.

We live locally and often take visitors here for Sunday lunch as we have always enjoyed the ambiance and food. However, last Sunday the food was definitely not as good as it has been in the past which was rather disappointing. As I often have the same thing, I was able to compare to past visits and sadly the food... More

Went for a late afternoon bite in the bar area of the hotel with friends and their baby after a nice sunny day walk. Wish we had packed some sandwiches instead as this choice soon became a disappointing one. Experience consisted of rude staff, pathetic food (child size adult portions) that the baby could have done a better job of... More

I visited today for lunch as part of a packaged tour. I felt so strongly about this that I had to write the review right away. The hotel looks amazing from the outside. The village itself is beautiful. Fantastic setting. We were sold this tour of the Cotswolds and lunch as some premium lunch experience. We had two options trout... More

Stayed for 3 nights in one of the Swans Garden Cottages (Whistling) It was one of the most relaxing breaks I've ever had. Beautiful cottage wonderfully decorated,Mineral water, coffee maker, kettle and Molton Brown toiletries (plenty of) Bibury itself is very pretty, well worth walking around the village and a visit to the 'Trout Farm' is a must. We didn't... More

Just returned from Bibury having stayed at the Swan Hotel. Lovely scenic village. Great room overlooking the River Coln and the hotel's gardens. Kingsize bed, very comfortable. Room clean and presentable and a huge bathroom. Elsewhere in the hotel appeared clean and welcoming. Although most of the staff appeared to be foreign they were all very helpful and polite Had...

Stopped off here for lunch on the way through and I'm glad we did. Service was good and the platter we had was amazing. The outside area it a great spot to catch the sunshine but do be warned it does get very busy. Only negative is there is almost no parking but it's is defiantly a visit.

My husband and i visited this establishment for lunch. At first glance it is beautifully quaint & charming with a pretty courtyard and pleasant interior. Within minutes of approaching the bar the two female bar staff were rude, flippant and had an extremely disappointing attitude towards customers. My husband and i then took a table outside in the court yard... More
