Very classy

By Cher B, on 19 Nov 2014

My son and daughter in law decided to get married with only 5 weeks notice. The staff were so helpful and did everything they possibly could to make the day as special as possible. The barge was beautiful. The wooden panels gave a feeling of warmth, the lanterns inside were lit, the red carpet and chairs were pristine and the flowers from Ferry Lane Florist added a touch of luxury. We had our wedding breakfast in The Thames Room. The tables were set and they looked magnificant. The food was exceptional. I could not recommend The Swan at Streatley highly enough.

Excellent Wedding Venue

By Helen Pendleton, on 12 Nov 2014

We had our wedding at the Swan and what a fantastic day it was. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and they could not do enough for us. All of our guest loved the setting, the food and the service. The staff worked late into the night and were there first thing in the morning. Definately recommended. What not change a thing.

Magdalen Barge Wedding

By Paula Robertson, on 12 Sep 2014

Anyone wanting a water side wedding, I would thoroughly recommend the Swan @ Streatley and their Magdalen Barge. I was fortunate enough to get married there last week. Jodie, the wedding coordinator, is so efficient, she guides you through the whole process, from your first visit to your wedding day. Not once did I feel stressed with planning the wedding as Jodie is an expert at her job. The venue itself it ideal, guests have the option of staying over night if desired. A few of us used the Spa & gym before the wedding and pampered ourselves at the onsite Beauty Rooms. We chose to marry on the Barge, which needed no additional decoration as it's such a stunning barge. We then had Pimms & Champagne on the riverside lawns. The wedding breakfast food was delicious, really good service and no cold or over cooked food in sight, unlike some wedding venues. As we had so many evening guests we took advantage of the Icknield Suite, it comfortably held 135+ guests with space for the DJ and dance floor. I liked the fact you had your own bar for the evening and bathrooms. The evening buffet was plentiful and so many guests remarked on how delicious the food was. Over all if you are looking for a relaxed wedding that is a little different, I would 100% recommend the Magdalen Barge and Swan @ Streatley.

Stress-free and stunning

By Sue and Chris Thomas, on 27 Jun 2014

The Swan at Streatley is in a show-stopping location, adjacent to the River Thames and nestled in the hills of the Goring Gap. It's currently undergoing refurbishment, hence the rating for facilities and buildings, but when it's all finished it will be even more stunning. We had our wedding ceremony on the Magdalen Barge, it was beautifully intimate and felt almost chapel-like without being at all religious. For us the real difference at the Swan was the services of Jodie Young, the hotel's dedicated wedding co-ordinator. From our first viewing of the facilities to the big day, it felt as though Jodie was on our journey with us. There was no need to be stressed, we explained what we wanted, and how we wanted the day to feel, and Jodie delivered! A few weeks before the wedding she took a couple of hours out to talk us through every step of our day so we knew what to expect. We didn't need to do anything on the morning of the wedding except to get ourselves ready! The food was excellent. One of the most fun aspects of the preparation was the menu tasting evening - and the service and quality of the food followed through to the actual wedding breakfast. We had loads of compliments on the food - quality and quantity - and the service was attentive yet unobtrusive. We were hoping for a stress-free, fun and enjoyable wedding day, and the Swan made sure that we had exactly that!

Wonderful Wedding Day

By Vanessa Cooke, on 13 Jun 2014

We are local to The Swan at Streatley and from our first meeting with Jodie the wedding planner to the wonderful support on the day from Dana and Norman we cannot praise them enough. Every detail went smoothly the canapés were delicious and the staff attentive and efficient. Our after party for 170 guests the next day was also very well managed, food excellent and a blast. I must say it is a 5 star location by the Thames, we got married on the Magdalen College barge and it a very unique venue.

Amazing day

By Mr & Mrs Main, on 01 Apr 2014

We had a truly brilliant wedding day. All the staff were brilliant, especially Jodie, the Wedding Coordinator. The grounds are beautiful, the food was lovely and everything went perfectly.


By Katrina and Chris, on 05 May 2011

The hotel were fantastic. They allowed us to have the wedding we really wanted. They couldn't have been more friendly, helpful or organised. They went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect.


By Paula Crane, on 07 Feb 2011

We got married at The Swan in January 2011. We couldnt fault the service provided, nothing was too much trouble and the day went without a hitch. The venue itself is beautiful and unusual, we have some stunning pictures from the day. Highly recommended!

Wonderful venue

By Melissa Pittock, on 17 Jan 2011

I got married at the Swan in August and our wedding day was absolutely perfect. All our guests said what a wonderful venue and setting it was. We have already been back for lunch and are also planning my Mothers birthday celebration!

Lovely venue

By Melissa Pittock, on 14 Jan 2011

All our guests said what a wonderful venue and the staff were very helpful. We have already been back for lunch and my Mother is also planning to have her birthday celebration at the hotel as well. We look forward to many more visits.

Perfect day had by all!

By The Martins, on 13 Jan 2011

During the planning and lead up to our special day, the satff at The Swan at Streatley gave us so much help and support with all of the organising. It really was the perfect day we had dreamed of!

Excellent weekend had by all

By Mr and Mrs Finney, on 12 Jan 2011

We wanted to thank the Swan at Streatley for making our Son's wedding day so special. The staff move about so silently and mysteriously changing all the set ups that there must be hidden doors somewhere!! Everyone felt they were personally received and delat with a personal touch throughout their stay.
