We had just a one night stay for B&B after a friends 50th birthday lunch nearby. We didn't look into The Swan much, unusually, as we are often hunting after a romantic week-end break. But we had SUCH a lovey surprise with the Swan. Our room, Kingfisher, was beautifully fitted out with a wonderful view to the green and trout...

Attending a wedding at Cripps barn in the evening, so met for lunch with friends in the Swan, where another wedding was going on! Fab food, and completely full by the end of the experience. Service wise the waitress was a bit surly, but the waiter was very attentive. Overall great experience.

Waking up the road with white and black swans, ducks and various birds busy on the stream made it an almost perfect English countryside stop....we ate but did not sleep / food was good, not cheap...banoffee pie was fantastic and the steaks were good too....

My partner and I won a £250 voucher at a raffle for to spend on a break with the Cotswolds inns and hotels group, and we're so lucky we did. We had a look around and decided we'd put it towards staying in the whooper cottage suite, which has its own private hot tub! Without the voucher we never would...

I have stayed at this hotel twice now in the last month, once with my wife and once with a group of friends. On both occasions I had a wonderful stay, lovely tastefully decorated rooms, great food and superb service. We usually stay in the recently closed Bibury Court Hotel and The Swans doesn't have the wow factor or the...

We live nearby and have wanted to go into the Swan for many years, as we often walk or drive past it, so when we were looking for a good place to meet neighbours for lunch, the restaurant here came to mind. It belongs to the same group of hotels as the Close in Tetbury , so that had to...

We recently had our wedding at the hotel. We could not have asked for a better day! Everyone commented on how well organised everything was, how nice all the staff were and how yummy the food was. The day flowed so well and seamlessly that we could just relax and enjoy ourselves. The wedding planner Charlotte was amazing from the...
