The hotel was really fantastic, perfect for a romantic weekend. we were upgraded to a wonderful cottage. The dinner at the brasserie was excellent and at a very good price considering the quality. The best place to take a taste of the beautiful English countryside.

We visited the hotel for a late lunch on a quiet Thursday afternoon. We were the only diners but that did not matter, in fact we had a wonderful family meal in a lovely quiet setting. The food was excellent and the service brilliant. I had the trout from the farm next door which was delicious. My fellow diners had...

We were on a tour and they sent us to the Lunch at the Swan Hotel. We had a limited menu but the food was good. The service was slow and we ran out of time and had to leave before the desert came. The number of bathrooms is limited so keep that in mind.

We chose this Hotel for its location & some good reviews, This hotel is situated very close to historic Arlington row. The price seemed to be quite reasonable for the type of hotel it was.

Peaceful and relaxing is exactly how we want our guests to remember their stay with us at The Swan Hotel. It is a shame that you didn't want to use the outdoor hot tub - we've not had comments about this before so thank you for your honest feedback. Kind regards, Kate Carter.

What can I say? We had the most fantastic stay in this hotel I think we've ever had in the UK! Exploring the Cotswolds and not originally intending to spend a night here, we popped in for a quiet drink after a day walking around the area. The beautiful appearance of the hotel, nestled amongst the quaint architecture and babbling...

The room was superb with everything anyone could want. The wedding was immaculately organised to my friend's wishes. the service was excellent. Parking was a big problem in the early afternoon because the village attracts many tourists even in the week. It is a beautiful village. Excellent food and a good breakfast menu.

Stayed for 1 night with the family. Took 2 rooms and they were both equally good. As we stayed over the weekend the price of the room was £230/night, which was not the cheapest but was bearable seeing that it is the only hotel in Bibury. Staff were helpful enough, although the reception staff checking us in could have been...
