Venue 'Pre Wedding BBQ'

By Naomi, on 03 Aug 2015

We had our pre wedding celebration BBQ here with ourselves and a number of guests also staying in the hotel. Jodie the event organiser was very helpful throughout organising the event. The hotel has an amazing location, our function room (Thames room) was great for our celebration. The food was delicious and all staff from the reception to the waiting staff and the bar staff, were very efficient and polite. Would advise anyone who is staying to book a river view refurbished room as they are beautiful. Will definitely come back to stay and would recommend to others for an event. It would be nice to see all rooms to the new refurbished standard.

Venue 'Beautiful Wedding Package 4th April 2015'

By David & samantha Lord, on 18 May 2015

The staff led by Jodie Young the Swans Wedding Coordinator made us feel so very important and were able to re organize their packages to meet our requirements. From the first phone call to the moment we sat down to our Wedding Breakfast we were never left alone to arrange anything. The complementary Meal and Wine tasting and the personalized packages allowed all our guests incusing vegans and vegetarians, from the very young to the older guests to be catered for from food, drink and comfort. Don't look anywhere else, contact Jodie and start to plan your DREAM wedding!!

Venue 'Beautiful venue!'

By Elissa, on 03 May 2015

We got married in April 2015 on the Magdalen Barge at the Swan at Streatley. What a fantastic experience! The barge is a unique and intimate venue and the sun was shining so we were able to enjoy leisurely drinks and photos on the lawn. The meal was delicious and the whole event went smoothly thanks to the work of Jodie and Darren on the day. The four poster bedroom was fab and the champagne in the room was a nice additional touch. The whole organisation as soon as we booked the wedding was really really good. They helped with every step of the way. Would thoroughly recommend!!

Venue 'Our Wedding'

By Viktoria and Julian Bebbington, on 25 Mar 2015

We had an amazing wedding day at The Swan at Streatley. From the moment we met Jodie we felt well looked after and completely trusted her with our plans. Jodie, Gareth and the hospitality team worked tirelessly to make our day as special as possible. Everything went like clockwork, the food and drinks were fantastic and they even made the sun shine in early March! I would highly recommend the Swan at Streatley if you'd like a wedding in a beautiful location with friendly and enthusiastic people who genuinely want you to have a day to remember. We'll never forget it and will be regular visitors in the future.

Venue 'Winter wedding wonderland'

By Hannah & Hugh, on 29 Jan 2015

We held our wedding reception at the Swan at Streatley in December 2014. Jodie, the Swan's resident wedding planner, is very efficient and a pleasure to work with - if you have any concerns about your day, or if you have never planned an event before, you have nothing to worry about as she will guide you through step by step. The venue is very versatile, with the barge for your ceremony and/or for photographs, and the Riverside Restaurant, Thames Bar and Icknield Banqueting Suite for entertaining your guests. The grounds alongside the Thames are lovely and great for pre-wedding breakfast drinks for your guests if the weather allows. The food was fantastic and all the waiting staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, in particular Adam, Kasper and Gareth. The latter two are part of the management team and went above and beyond to make sure that everything across the whole wedding weekend went extremely well. If you choose to book your wedding at the Swan, you will be in very good hands indeed.

Venue '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.

Venue '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.

Venue '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.

Venue '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!

Venue '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.

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.

Venue 'Fantastic!'

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.
