I recently stayed in 'The Swan' as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend. He'd booked a superior four poster double which was absolutely beautiful, the room was decorated perfectly and was really cozy. The view unfortunately was non existent. Even though we were very happy with the room we did have a couple of complaints. The room price was extremely expensive and when we arrived there was bottled water on the side which cost £4.95 if we wanted to drink it!! Personally think this is disgusting when you're paying a lot of money for a room (surely bottled water should be complimentary at an expensive hotel) If you want to have an alcoholic drink in the hotel take a lot of money with you, we were charged £6.05 for a small glass of wine!! We quickly moved on to a nice little pub in the village where the prices were a lot more reasonable!
Breakfast was nice, they offered different cereals, fruit juices etc and then an option of a fried breakfast or smoked salmon and other alternative breakfasts which was nice.
The village of Bibury is very small and only has a small shop, tea room and a pub. Nice for one evening but not much else to do there.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at 'The Swan' but thought that it was a tad pricey!!
