Friendliness of the staff
Log fires with poor circulation which filed the rooms with smoke
Staff were very friendly and Monty loved all the dog bowls of food every where!
The rooms in the old mill are lovely and good value. The location is great and the old buildings superb.
I think the dining experience could have been better, the table was in a square room with about 25 tables, there are more intimate areas to eat so make sure you book one of them.

BREAKFAST LOCATION SURROUNDING AREA
EVENING DINNER- LIMITED CHOICE, POOR MENU WHICH WAS HARDLY CHANGED OVER 4 DAYS AND IT WAS NO BETTER THAN AVERAGE PUB FOOD
Excellent development of old mill site with great conference facilities as well as catering for the individual traveller.
The inescapable geography that the dining and breakfast facilities are not co-located. Still the Swan is as good as I remember 20 years ago
Everything, especially the river rooms
The dinner was good. The staff tried hard to be helpful.
The split personality of the place. Is it a hotel or a country pub? Tired, expensive, and outmoded room with a view of a rusty tin shed. Nobody on reception when I arrived at night. Had to go looking for somebody. Confusing split site - signposts unreadable in the dark - nobody to show me to my room, up a vertical, slippery flight of stairs, and through several fire doors carrying heavy bags. A very good dinner. But they forgot to bring the drink I ordered, and the waitress blamed her bar colleagues: 'I put in the order but they must have lost it.' Bored children in the bar playing games on tablets, ignored by their parents. Dogs wandering about. They don't do room service. I like dogs, but not jumping up at me in the breakfast room. Dark public rooms, too many steps to fall over and low beams to crack your head on in the gloom. A waiter who did not understand the term 'poached eggs' and had to consult his superior - after ten minutes. Breakfast was cramped, overcrowded, chaotic, and understaffed. A dangerous make your own toast machine on the bar. (A child showed me how to use it.) At the bar I paid for a drink with a ten pound note and was given change for five. The staff member assured me I'd given her five - took a note from the cash drawer and showed me - but was then interrupted by her superior (who had witnessed the transaction) who told her I had definitely handed over a ten pound note as he had seen it. And the bill for one night and dinner was £316. I should have driven a bit further to The Royal Crescent in Bath, where they know how to treat a guest.
Location, food quality.
Cleanliness, restaurant menu, untrained/inexperienced staff.
Very helpful staff, so much to do on site including tennis, fishing, giant chess, visiting the hens, nature walks or just sitting listening to the river. Amazing food - breakfast, lunch, dinner and cream teas ALL great!
The room was a little small for the three of us. The Wi-Fi was slow and unstable but I believe this is being addressed. Be prepared for service to be a little slow at busier meal times.
Beautiful gardens Lovely buildings Good food Excellent service
"What's not to like?"
Location and garden
Small cramped rooms with no walk in shower Very slow dinner service - over one hour 15 to serve Priced at luxury but doesn't match girls like Dormy house in Cotswolds
location fantastic Staff super friendly ambiance hotel Good food nice walks directly from Hotel Spa treatment Rooms small but comfortable
Wifi poor Gym needs an upgrade Burn your fire places at all times Consider wellness Selection TV channels
Beautiful property, in an idyllic setting by a stream Feather pillows Complimentary bedside cherry gin Sumptuous breakfast included Ample parking Outdoor game facilities
Single pane windows provide poor sound proofing from passers by. Bookings for dinner at the Inn is required. Ignorant of this we ended up with a 9 pm seating and our main course at 9.45pm. The meal was excellent.
Location and breakfast
Very welcoming staff on our arrival. A truly romantic location with immaculate gardens and a calm stream running past the River Room where we stayed, it made my birthday a most memorable occasion. Lovely breakfast with fresh fruit and a wide range of hot or cold breakfast choices. Had dinner on two evenings in the restaurant and the food was wonderfully cooked. Great location within the Cotswolds.
Comfortable bed and lovely bed linen.
The room was very small (it was supposed to be the next grade up from a standard) and apart from a small wardrobe with a few coat hangers there was nowhere to put clothes, no drawers or shelves. The shower was only hand held over the bath and there was no protective screen. Also despite double glazing on some windows there was a hum from the kitchen extractor fan. Breakfast seemed a little disorganised. It was all self service with cooked items in large warming dishes. These were not checked very regulaly and things were running out and not being replaced very quickly. It also took a while to get extra milk and butter.
Grounds are beautiful Breakfast was excellent
We had two rather large spiders in our room including a Huntsman. We fed thus back to the staff but they did not seem particularly interested.
Lovely relaxing break in idyllic surroundings
Restaurant food in the evening was ok - should have been better for the money though
very friendly staff beautiful surroundings
Ambiance of yesterday
No provision for diabetics
Friendly service, beautifully well kept buildings and gardens, well maintained log fires add to the character that the place exudes, excellent breakfast
Room (in the minster mill) was a let down, not finished to as high a standard as the rest of the property. Dinner quality was fairly good, but should have been about 25% cheaper - there are better places to eat for the money.
Very friendly staff with a lovely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Menu a bit limited but nicely cooked. Buffet breakfast excellent especially all the fresh fruit.
Very hot duvet
Superb hotel, great location. and the food was delicious. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to help. We loved the log fires...so cosy. We would definitely stay again and will be recommending the hotel to our friends. PS the hot water bottle was a nice touch too.
