We needed somewhere to stay in this area but we had left it late to book and as it was the bank holiday most places were already fully booked, however The Swan Hotel had a vacancy. I'm used to staying in top class hotels and having read some of the reviews on Tripadvisor we seriously thought twice about booking but in the end decided to give it a try and I'm really glad that we did. First good point was the price, £55.00 per room per night for 2 people with a full cooked breakfast. We had a standard twim room which was pretty basic but had tea/coffee making facilities, a hair dryer, flat screen TV with plenty of channels. The bedding was clean and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was roomy and spotlessly clean. This is an old building which gives it loads of charm but not too brilliant soundproofing inside, this was't a problem though. We had a look inside an executive room as we left and it was really nice, very oldy-worldy with a four poster bed.
The hotel is in a pleasant village/country town in the cotswolds, it's on a quiet road so there's not much traffic noise. It has a nice bar and a pleasant restaurant. The restaurant is very contemporarily furnished and decorated within this nice old building and it really is a pleasant place to eat. Breakfast is served here and included in the room price we had fruit juice, tea/coffee, full english breakfast and loads of toast and marmalade, great start to the day.
This is an old country hotel and may not suit those who's idea of comfort a Travel Lodge with a Harvester next door but I loved it.
Good value for money
Nice little town
Friendly helpfull staff
Clean & comfortable
