We arrived here for a lunch at about 1.30 and my husband went to the bar and ordered our drinks and food and left a card at the bar. He brought our drinks out and we sat in the sun enjoying the surroundings. We waited for half and hour for our food before asking a passing waitress where our fish... More

We have regularly stayed in the Swan over many years, rooms 8 & 11. Excellent accommodation, however food quality, presentation and service is no longer the standard we used to know. No tablecloths, no attentive waiting staff, undercooked chips, overcooked steaks, and cold breakfast. We were advised the style of service has changed to that of a brasserie, at £25... More

We have just returned from a lovely night at this hotel. The location is beautiful. Very picturesque indeed. We stayed in Room 14 and it overlooked the gardens and trout farm. The bed was very comfy indeed. Lots of room in the room and bathroom, with a big bath and powerful shower. Morton brown toiletries were scrummy! We had a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. Very comfortable room, staff were attentive and friendly. We had a bed and breakfast deal and the breakfast menu was brilliant. We ate in the bar on the first night and had a very nice meal. Decided to try the brasserie restaurant on 2nd night and had a truly superb meal. I had duck... More

Took my wife and family to the Swan for afternoon tea as a birthday treat. This is a lovely hotel in a stunning little village but found their afternoon tea a bit of a rip-off. For near £20 each you got a couple of not so dainty sandwiches on cheap bread, a very average bit of sponge cake, a good... More

I met a friend at this place. We sat by the window and had lemon drizzle cake. I stayed in the Owl room - a free upgrade. The bed was fantastic, but we flooded the floor of the bathroom after an over exuberant bath. Lack ot phone mobile phone signal is an issue, but there is free Wifi and the... More

We've previously visited a couple of the other hotels in the group so our expectations of The Swan were definitely set by the positive experiences we'd had in the past, and influenced our decision to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a one night stay there. To be honest, we were a little disappointed with the experience. Yes, it's a quaint... More
