    The staff were attentive without being intrusive. Everyone I encountered had a ready smile. Staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. Our room was comfortable and very clean. We felt that the hotel had a comfortable welcoming atmosphere and we enjoyed Edward Bear's company! Even the number of parking spaces was adequate which is very unusual.

    Nothing, we were very comfortable

    The hotel staff were courteous, welcoming and very helpful, the setting of the hotel by the river is quite delightful and the room itself was extremely comfortable - One could not ask for more.

    Limited parking could create difficulties in the tourist high season.

    Both myself and friends felt we were made to feel welcome in a well run relaxing clean hotel with good food too.

    It was my third visit to this lovely hotel. Hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful. Room was quite spacious, decorated in lovely English style. It has bar inside as well as outside, both of which has great atmosphere. The garden is very well maintained and I loved a cup of tea there. If you like lovely English country side stay, this hotel is place to go.

    I wish internet access were cheaper or free of charge.

    The hotel was beautiful, our room was very comfortable, decor' very good. The staff was excellant, they were all so friendly yet professional we were well looked after. Food was excellent!! The location was outstanding, so peaceful in fact I would say the best in the Cotswolds. The hotel and location together made our holday perfect. Thankyou

    The small garden just off the charming Gallery Restaurent was a bit of a let down after viewing it on line. My sister and I took our books out there to sit and relax and were disappointed that the tables and chairs were dirty and we could not have eaten our meal out there as suggested we could do if the weather was fine.

    The four poster room is like a dream, the 3 courses dinner and the breakfast are the best that we have tried. There are also lovely lounges, bars and a garden. Everything is just amazing! We spent 289€ for an unforgettable night including the dinner, it's worth and someday we would like to come back to Bibury again just for another night at Swan Hotel!

    The hotel is too good that we spend most time in the hotel and did not see Bibury very much. It's not really a bad thing.

    Great setting

    Staff in the restaurant too pushy - made you feel that it was more about their time than yours.

    We were spending the night at The Swan following our wedding. The staff were so nice and friendly and we were lucky enough to get an upgrade to a tied cottage attached to the hotel. Our little cottage was fantastic and a great surprise on our special day. We would recommend the hotel a thousand times over.

    Comfortable room and a fabulous location. Our family including an infant was really relaxed by the stay.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The staff were very friendly and excellent, as was the food & location

    for £180 per night the bed was 2 connected single beds so you had to sleep on 2 seperate sides, a mattress topper over this would have helped so not great for a romantic break, for £180 a night this hotel was over priced. The room was ok but i think £80-£100 would be the right price for the room though the service was that of a £180 per night hotel.

    Excellent location, attractive inn in beautiful village. Much character, warm and friendly service, reasonable prices. Sorry I didn't have time to flyfish on Coln, but you could see the many trout feeding in the stream.

    There was 4 people in our party and we used it at a central base for going to golf courses in the area.

  • Older travelers

    The room was beautiful - one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful, without being over attentative. The food was good and all set in a wonderful historic old building in a truly beautiful location. All in all a lovely break.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Beautiful property in stunning location. Excellent breakfast. Perfect venue for an early evening drink in the sunny courtyard or lovely gardens opposite. Good dinner and wine list including some pleasing New World choices, attentive staff.

    Slightly cramped room (by the time my laptop was out, there was no space to put anything else on the desk.) Appalling bathroom - basin didn't hold water for long - shower tap was loose and virtually impossible to set to a constant temperature - toilet took ages to fill - hot water took ages to run.
