We stayed just the one night, attending a wedding nearby. We very much enjoyed our stay - what a lovely hotel with lots of little extras: goodies in the mini-fridge, tissues, cotton balls etc, and a real coffee machine! And the owners were so flexible - check-in time is normally 3pm, but because we had to be at the wedding by 1:30, a half hour's drive away, they ensured our rooms were ready for us when we arrived at 12:30! We arrived back from the wedding very late - no problem, and we even had a nice lie-in next morning, with breakfast for us delayed until gone 10am. The breakfast was delicious, and the whole stay was very good value for money.
I stayed at the Swan for a couple of nights while I explored the area. Paul, Donna and their team have created outstanding locally sourced dishes for lunch and evening menus. He was also my personal breakfast chef! The pub has retained its traditional style and was busy every lunch and evening I was there. It’s a popular place and deservedly so - you will need to book. The rooms above the pub are delightfully furnished, quiet and comfortable. The bathrooms have been completely renovated and offer high-end Grohe fittings and luxury amenities. The room also has a mini fridge which contains milk and other items. Bampton is a small village, ideally located in a￼ fabulous area of natural beauty. There is a large carpark directly adjacent to the hotel. It’s a place I’m sure to return to now that the restrictions have been lifted.￼…
Just returned from a wonderful break the hotel was welcoming,the rooms were cosy and clean plenty of tea,coffee and fresh milk. We had 2 super breakfasts and the evening meals were exceptional the best we’ve had for a long time.A big thank you to Paul and all the team for such good service.
A rare evening out with my daughter and where better to eat than the Swan? The Covid restrictions don’t detract from first class food and service, our meals were delicious. The plaice was cooked perfectly and chicken Kiev was just right. The ginger sticky pudding that we shared was simply divine! Well done to Paul, Donna and team, we are lucky to have you in Bampton.
Fantastic room, attention to detail is everything. Fresh milk for tea & coffee! Breakfast, not had better anywhere. Ate here for evening meal one night and the other at Spelt, their restaurant down the road, both highly recommended, only difficulty was choosing what to have with such quality choices. Already planning when we can go again. Thank you Paul & Donna, perfect hosts. Staff all friendly and welcoming, great atmosphere. Mr Potts loved it. 🤣.
