“A delight!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I recently stayed at the Swan Hotel with a number of dear friends on a dinner/bed/breakfast deal! What a deal...a little bit of luxury in a fabulous hotel, originally 3 houses built in the 14th/15th century and then an inn from the 17th. A labrinth of beamed corridors - lead to light airy stylish bedrooms, with beds so comfortable you will want to take them home with you at the end of your stay. Afternoon tea was yummy as was the evening meal and breakfast. In fact we were so well looked after that we can't wait to go back.

Myself and my partner stayed for one night on 2nd February on a dinner/bed/breakfast deal.
The staff are extremely courteous, polite, helpful, and professional, but not in an 'over the top' type of way. Our room was a delight, it was cosy, tasteful, and spotlessly clean. Dinner in the restaurant was perfect, an interesting menu to choose from, beautifully presented and delicious, with immaculate service, as was breakfast.
This hotel is full of character. I've stayed in lots of hotels in various parts of the world, and I have to say that this is up there with the best I've ever used. Try as I might to find fault, the only thing I can think of is that the bar prices are a bit on the expensive side, but that is a minor quibble.
I will be back, and I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

This place is a piece of history. Very relaxing and good public areas with fireplaces with roaring fires etc. perfect for a winter getaway. Worth paying more for the better rooms. At 240 for a feature room we had twice the space of friends in a regular room at 200. Restaurant is top end uk classics, though the breakfast organisation was overengineered and should either be a buffet or have more staff on duty. Whoever described the pancake as 'american' has never been to america. But that din't spoil a great stay. Recommended.

Booked the romantic Feb special, pricey but superb in every way (you gets what you pays for and the company that you keep - accepted). Staff all very good and friendly, seem genuine too, food really good and we're fussy, portions perfect. Sadly our Sunday was curtailed because of the heavy snow as Lavenham and surrounding areas are so pretty, another time....
