Very pleasant, peaceful stay .. woke feeling fresh and well rested. Good size room (# 1), similarly en-suite was a good size. Room was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Warm too (radiator was very effective). Quick, efficient check-in and check-out .. and they serve great food but be sure to bring your appetite as the servings are substantial ...... More

This is one of the nicest "Pub" hotels that I have stayed at in the UK. We arrived late-ish, but the staff were very friendly and even offere to take out bags to the room, no mean feat in an English country hotel!

We had previously visited the Swan for lunch, my wife and I and small daughter and were impressed so decided to go again. Often one can be disappointed second time around but this is certainly not the case at The Swan. The food is not only 'homemade' and delicious but very reasonably priced. We had soft scotch eggs for starters,... More

When we checked in, the lad at reception dumped out a box of keys on the desktop and sorted through them at length, trying to find ours.

Arrived after a long walk on our Cotswold hike. We first noticed that the place was authentically old and wonderfully quirky.

This is a very old building which they have tried to cover with cosmetic upgrades. It is still a creaky, noisy building with uneven floors. No heat in our room last night made this a very unsatisfactory stay. We had two different men in to make the towel warmer work but without success. This place is a dump.
