We visited the Swan last summer for lunch on a day trip to Lavenham. We sat in the beautiful garden in the sun. The food was tasty, well presented and absolutely faultless. The waitress helpful and friendly. I would definitely be a regular to The Swan if I lived nearer!

We had our daughters wedding reception at the Swan 10 years ago, and really enjoyed the day. So when we thought about an overnight stay somewhere for my birthday I suggested the swan at lavenham. They were doing a winter warmer package, and we decided to book. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely split level room on the... More

We love this hotel in Lavenham. It is such a special treat to get away from it all. The hotel and its staff are second to none. It has a relaxed and warm feel to it, you can't help but fall in love with the place. You are made to feel like royalty by the staff. We have stayed there... More

This hotel was fantastic. I really enjoyed the stay. The room was excellent and the food was lovely. The woman who sorted out our cream tea and the dinners for our party was simply fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Right from booking in until booking out, this hotel was brilliant. Our room was lovely, very clean, comfy bed. Even though this hotel is very old, they have retained the character. There are lots of little areas to sit and have drinks or just to read the paper. The food was excellent in the brasserie, as was the service. In... More

This is our second visit to the Swan at Lavenham. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very attentive. The quality of the food is excellent and chefs and serving staff should be commended for this. We are looking forward to the spa opening and will be returning later in the year. Only a couple of small negative and... More

Couldn't help feeling slightly underwhelmed following our two night stay here in February. Nothing was particularly bad, but a lot of things weren't particularly good either. The positives: - Room (22) was a good size, nicely decorated with a comfortable bed and away from the traffic noise. - Breakfast was very nicely done both mornings with great service and decent...

This was our second stay here and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. A very special to stay. The building is medieval and quirky which we love, so much atmosphere about the place. A luxurious place to stay , the gardens are very pretty too and the the spa opens in March 2015. The staff are so friendly and nothing is... More

We just popped in for coffee with some friends. There were many nooks and crannies to choose from, all very comfortable and relaxing. The log fire was roaring, the largely eastern european staff very pleasant and the coffee excellent. The building itself is beautiful and layout of the bars and restaurants is quite inspired and we really enjoyed an hour... More
