Enjoyed staying at this friendly run small hotel overnight from Derbyshire. Great staff, food and the Rare Breed ale was a certainly partaken of. The Evening meal and breakfast consisted of wonderfully prepared food and helpful staff. Thought the town of Wotton-under-Edge a beautiful place to explore. Will return for a longer stay to enjoy the surrounding countryside.

Room Tip: The bedroom we stayed in - decor was a little tired but scrupulously clean.

Stayed at The Swan Hotel, Wotton for several years now in ensuite accommodation over Badminton Horse Trials event. We have always found the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are full English, porridge, cereals, toast, jams, marmalade, juices, tea, coffee. There is a varied Dinner menu with plenty of choice for vegetarians, starters, mains and desserts.
There's plenty of hot water and the rooms are clean, cosy and warm. There are tea/coffee facilities in the rooms and TV.
Newspapers and magazines are now available to buy from here too which is another bonus. There is a lovely cosy bar and a snug and the newly decorated restaurant looks super. Residents are well catered for and we will be coming next year too as usual. Thank you to David and Rob and the staff for a great stay again.
Car parking is free and available 50 m away in the long stay parking.
Wotton is a lovely place to stay and we visited the Craft and Farmers' market next door in the Town Hall when we were here.

Room Tip: Get an ensuite room. We normally stay in Rooms 2 & 4.

Thank you for your review and it was nice seeing you again at The Swan Hotel. The changes you saw this year are nothing in comparison to what changes will be made on your visit next year! We are refurbishing all the bedrooms over the coming months. We look forward to showing you around then!!

stayed here unexpectedly and found it had lovely warm spacious rooms, the food was second to none and staff were so helpful and polite and homourous. Even had great vegetarian options on offer at no extra charge for room service. I shall return.

Our room was a bit noisy at first in the early evening as the bar was directly underneath us, but when we went down for early evening drinks we were greeted with grins all round and a free pint from the barman ("gotta keep yer strength up mate"); apparently we gave as good as we got with the noise pollution when our horizontal exertions made the ceiling creak to the severe amusement of the drinkers in the bar! It was a bit embarrassing, I'm not so good in the bedroom department, all my mates can do it in 2 minutes but it take me half an hour!! Sorry customers!

Sadly last orders for food were 19.30 that night as Sunday Lunch had been so busy the kitchen supplies were exhausted, so we sought our evening entertainment elsewhere and ended up in a midnight curry house with a Vindaloo face pack as ever. . . .

Breakfast very nice, a bit on the skimpy side but GREAT quality. We returned the following Sunday for lunch, which was super; nothing was too much trouble, my girlfriend is allergic to cheese and cream etc, so the chef made a tomato and basil sauce to replace a creamy one, all knocked up in 5 mins and heavenly! Well done:-))

Just an overnight stay. Room large and high ceilinged - converted from the old coaching area perhaps? Spacious if tired bathroom. Delightful bar with log fire, and good menu, including a new gluten-free one much appreciated by this celiac. Good if average breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Biggest drawback was the lack of parking, though I guess the old coaches were easily accommodated! Parked at the free public car park 50m up the street - there's a 3 hour area and a 23 hour area. A place eventually opened up in the 23 area and we were then able to go off for the rest of the day to hike.
