We couldn't fault this hotel. There was some building work going on and we were informed when we made our booking. In the vent, it had no impact on our visit but it was kind of the staff to let us know. The welcome was friendly and efficient; car parking arrangements were simple and secure; the room was ultra comfortable;... More

Wow, we totally loved this hotel and are already looking for excuses to visit again. Our room was beautiful, in keeping with the style of the hotel yet still all the luxuries you would expect of a newer hotel. The toiletries were AMAZING. The food was wonderful and the staff very attentive and helpful.

A very spontaneous decision to go away for a couple of days but as we had stayed several times before at The Swan, there was no hesitation in booking what was a good B and B deal and a chance to go and visit the National Trust sites within easy reach of the hotel. As always, a friendly greeting, bags... More

Our lunch was very disappointing, the main course was served on cold plates,the vegetables appeared to have been pre-cooked and were cold and wrinkled on arriving at the table, the fondant potato was probably reheated and was dry and inedible, the only saving grace on the plate was the chicken breast which was moist quite tasty, our dessert was poached...

My husband and I stayed at the Swan on our wedding night and stayed in a suite. The suite is beautiful! We had a living room, bathroom and separate bedroom which were all beautifully decorated! The Hotel is very quaint with beams. Tall people need to mind their heads as some of the hallways have extremely low ceilings! The bathroom... More

We were told that the room was the least desirable in the hotel and was at the back. Well it was just fine,... More

Well, i really have no idea where to start. Myself and my husband have now stayed at the Swan a total of 4 times in the past 5 months and each time we visit, we just love it more and more. Every time we have been, we receive a friendly and warm welcome, and only once i've had to introduce... More

We have just returned from a 3 night break and we couldn't fault it. The public areas are warm and inviting with log fires and tasteful decor. Lovely squashy sofas to cosy up on with afternoon tea or pre dinner drinks. Our room ( No. 38) was delightful and was an unexpected upgrade as we had booked a standard room... More

We love this hotel out of season. It is a jumble of mostly timber framed buildings of various ages stitched together into an oasis of calm. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, the lounges have log fires, perpetually alight, the bar serves real ale and good dry sherry. The staff are polite, helpful, friendly and inconspicuous. We stayed 2... More

Had to cancel because of medical reasons - unfortunately you will lose your deposit completely if this happens even if a lot of notice is given (6 days in my case). You cant even transfer the deposit to stay another time. I presume this is in the small print somewhere. Not had this in the larger hotel chains but presume... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestling in the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury, is The Swan Hotel in Lavenham, perhaps one of England's most iconic hotels. The Swan dates back to the 15th century when it played a key role in Lavenham's wool trade. Today it is a quintessential English country hotel and restaurant, proud of its achievement of AA 4 Red star, two AA Rosettes & Visit England Large Hotel of the Year 2013. Ancient oak beams and inglenook fireplaces blend beautifully with rich furnishings and fabrics to create the perfect ambiance for rest and relaxation. The historic old bar boasts a wonderful collection of memorabilia, including a wall signed by British and American airmen stationed at Lavenham Airfield during World War II. The Swan is a wonderful place in which to celebrate a variety of special occasions, including romantic weddings, christenings and family get-togethers. It is also a unique venue for seminars, meetings and conferences, where 15th century inspiration combines with 21st Century innovation. ... more   less
