GreenLeaders Bronze level
Located just 15 miles from Oxford and 11 miles from Blenheim Palace, Old Swan is nestled in 65 acres of idyllic grounds in the picturesque village of Minster Lovell. This quintessentially English inn seamlessly blends the rural charm of its historic setting with contemporary design, luxurious comfort and delicious menus crafted from the best seasonal produce. The magical gardens, wild flower meadows and woodland which enclose the mill and inn come alive during the summer months – fishing, walking, croquet and tennis are the order of the day while throughout cooler weather roaring log fires provide a welcome retreat.

We had a bit of a muddle to start with as the Booking.com reservation photo was for a Deluxe Room and not a Superior. The Superior is too small as the child bed blocked the wardrobe. The hotel manager was very helpful and helped sorted this our very quickly which was a relief. The Deluxe Room is very pretty with a good sized walk in shower. The hotel is very dog friendly- we had a Yorkie puppy who was made a fuss of. Lots of dog water bowls around the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and looked after us especially the young waitress.

Obviously struggling for staff after lockdown and at times it showed. Room key was decidedly temperament which was annoying. The menu majors on pies but the steak pie I had could be bettered by most supermarkets- very disappointing.

We returned to this fabulous hotel yet again. Heatwave due & slight trepidation during pandemic. Sean & his amazing crew put us immediately at our ease. Although relaxed & informal Sean ensured maximum covid safety was applied. We had an amazing stay & Mollie & Archie (dogs) especially approved of their English Breakfast. I highly recommend staying here & we had a faultless vacation. We look forward to returning soon.

Peaceful, relaxing stay in the Old Swan in the romantic Executive suite for our Ruby Wedding weekend. Great service, excellent food. Would recommend to anyone in an idyllic setting. Particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon with smashed avocado and poached eggs on sour dough for breakfast.

Worst treatment from the lady serving us, food tasted absolutely awful and prices were ridiculously high. Ruined such a lovely day that we had hiking the cotswolds. Don’t waste your money and eat elsewhere.
