Many thanks to all the team at The Swan. Food was excellent with the beef being the best I have ever tasted. Staff where attentive but not overbearing. Totally enjoyed our lunch and will certainly be returning.

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food delicious, the room and bathroom lovely, and the location gorgeous. We loved our stroll around the village and even just staring at the view outside our window. Thank you for a very nice visit!

The staff were pleasant but the service was slow and the afternoon tea although good quality was expensive. I thought that I had booked for tea 'by the river', however within an enclosed courtyard with a road between the river and the tea table wasn't quite the proximity implied by the brochure!

酸っぱいスープ、ローストチキンむね肉(しかなかった)には甘いだけのソース。つくねらしき添え物も・・。固過ぎるパン。ひどいディナーでした。 翌日の昼食にロウアー・スローターで食べた Duck Legの美味しかった事。添えられたシャキッとした葉野菜もソースも何とも美味しかったので、シェフの違いだったんでしょう。

We have had the perfect stay and the service was second to none! We were thoroughly pampered. We had a beautiful meal after our wedding ceremony. And breakfast was fantastic. Perfect is not enough. Thank you so much.

The stay side of the hotel is great: lovely welcome and nice room at a decent price. But the food was beyond dire. If I’m being charged £21 for poached trout with a prawn raviolo, I’d expect it to be of a decent standard. It wasn’t, it was awful. Dry, tasteless and what should have been a bisque was more of a shellfish chutney. I think you need to simplify your menu and learn to cook the basics before trying the more adventurous stuff. Having said that, the breakfast wasn’t much better, especially with the hotel handyman prowling through the breakfast room as though he owned it and then sitting down to a breakfast himself (never have staff eating at the same room as guests, it’s incredibly unprofessional). It was as though the improvements in British cooking over the past decade had never happened. If I could give it a zero, I would. Basically, stay here by all means but avoid the food like the plague.

We have just returned back from our stay at The Swan. It has a beautiful setting and location, our room ( room 12)was a lovely clean room and spacious, The food was enjoyable and the staff were friendly. However, there is a big BUT, the service was diabolical at times, service very slow at all meal times and like a scence out of Fawlty Towers. We had to wait over 40 minutes to have be served out breakfast, drinks took over 20 mins to arrive. The Friday evening we had our wine deducted from our bill because of service issues. The staff are very friendly but need training/ direction? But definitely needs attention in this area. Such a shame as otherwise it would be a 10 out of 10.

Terrible service, understaffed and disorganised. We waited for 40 minutes before anyone took our order, and this only happened because we asked the waiting staff 5 times. No one took a drinks order - we gave up and bought a bottle of wine from the bar instead. When the food did turn up, it wasn't what we had ordered. Very disappointing indeed. Avoid on bank holidays.

Unfortunately we had a terrible lunch in the brasserie on Sunday 6th May. We waited for a long time before being served; the whole meal took 2 hours for one course of food! We waited for our orders to be taken, then waited for a long time for the food to arrive. The waiter forgot our starters, bringing only the main course, and was unapologetic when we asked him where the starter was. The roast pork was very dry and salty and was eventually taken off our bill when we complained to the manager. Almost every other table had a similar experience, with each table complaining to the manager at different points. Very disappointing.

Lisa greeted us most warmly and showed us to the Kingfisher - a beautiful room, finely decorated with a sumptious bed and bathroom. Restaurant and bar staff were attentive, efficient and so personable. My Wife and I were delighted to have been guests at The Swan Hotel and look forward to our return in the future.
