We had the chance to stay in The Swan Hotel for 5 nights. The room was nice and clean. The bathrooms are very clean and all the sanitaryware is new and perfectly operational. What attracts you the most is the warm friendly welcoming attitude of the hosts. We literally got everything we asked for. Breakfast was on time, hot, customized... More

Warm welcome and great hosts. Room was excellent and the bathrooms superb. Couldn't eat all the freshly cooked breakfast. Great to not have to pull over cooked and half warm food from a buffet bar. Could not fault one thing and would advise without doubt to use again. The hosts are doing a great job

Ideal for short stays or stopovers in a great location. The rooms are very small but the bathrooms are modern and the beds very comfortable. You will certainly not go hungry if you have an appetite for a traditional English breakfast. Real ale lovers will enjoy the bar as there are always a good selection of local and guest beers....

I've just checked out of the Swan Hotel in Thame and I've been so pleased with the atmosphere and the service I wanted to share this buried treasure with others looking for a home away from home. Thame is my favorite traditional market town where everything seems to be in easy walking distance, yet it is a short drive to... More

We stayed on Saturday night at this lovely atmospheric pub/hotel in Thame as we were lunching at the nearby Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. What a great choice! The bedroom was compact, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed ensured we had a great night's sleep before enjoying a fabulous cooked breakfast. Friendly, attentive service from the owners and a... More

Stayed with my wife for 1 night , it was a Saturday and when we booked were informed loud music possible in bar that night so we were offered newly refurbished double well away from bar and in fact we heard very little noise. Room was not over large but had everything necessary for short stay and bathroom and bedroom... More

Picked the Swan as the perfect base location for a motorcycle trip in Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire. Professionally run hotel, very nice hosts, good food, no complaints at all. Will certainly stop by again!

A pub-hotel really delicious ... It is located in central and strategic position, Nik and Richard are very friendly and the breakfast is fabulous! Not to be missed, especially during weekend: Saturday also great live music! Deborah from Italy

We stayed here in June 2013 (couple). Managed to get a room at the last minute (having been double booked elsewhere) and were very happy. The hotel is going through a refurbishment and some disruption might have been accepted. However there was no issue with that. The room was up some steep stairs (what do you expect in a 16th... More

I have stayed at the Swan at least once a year for several years. The new owners are very welcoming and attentive to details. They have done a great job with the upgrades and in particular the bathrooms. Breakfast is fantastic and it is nice to experience the Bar and socialize with the locals before retiring for the evening. The... More
