My wife and I have stopped at The Swan several times over the years, our most recent visit being in July 2006 when we had an elegant room overlooking the river Thames. The cost for this was £161 which is expensive even for this area. The hotel appears to be trading on its location overlooking the river Thames, as the service and catering have gradually deteriorated over time and is now only just adequate.
The main problem during this last visit was a wedding party whose reception seemed to be taking place just below our windows. The noise of this went on to way past midnight and thereafter we were disturbed by wedding guests making their way to their rooms.
Breakfast is Self Service and consequently the 'kept warm' bacon and scrambled egg are not always palatable. Service at breakfast can be variable, on our latest visit the delivery of the hot food was delayed by some 15 minutes.
The reception staff are pleasent and helpful but we had a problem with our bedding which we asked to be changed from a duvet to sheet and blankets. All that happened was that a sheet and a blanket were delivered to our room and placed on the bed leaving us to remove the duvet and remake with the blankets! Not good enough for a smart hotel.
Sorry to say we shall not be staying there again.
