We stayed at the Swan in the Suffolk village of Lavenham for a weekend break and the whole experience was excellent. The first thing we found when we entered the village was that the Christmas Fair was in full swing and the place was heaving. We parked on double yellows while I went into the reception. The hotel car park... More

We had afternoon tea, dinner and stayed the night and enjoyed every minute of it. The place has a very homely feel and loved the choice all the different nooks and crannies you can sit in - all with plumped up cushions and comfortable settees and chairs and it's olde worlde charm. Couldn't believe how large it was either -a... More

Had afternoon tea at this lovely hotel. Very comfortable squashy seats in the lounge in front of a roaring log fire as it was a chilly afternoon this was very welcome. Tea was served on a traditional cake stand and an additional platter for extra cake. Sandwiches nice and fresh, with five types of cake including cream and jam. Staff... More

I spent two nights at this old worldly hotel and had a brilliant experience, the staff cannot do enough for you and the rooms are very comfortable. We attended a birthday party and served lunch, it was wonderful, I enjoyed my stay very much

15th century building with modernisation in keeping with its history. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent and the sommelier not only knew his wines, but knew the menu sufficiently well to recommend a more suitable wine to pair with the meal than my possible first choice. I did taste my choice and found... More

When I lived in the UK this place was a staple for a great feed in an historic hotel. Four years on, there have been some modernizations, the rear car park has vanished under hoarding and the staff multinational. The quality of the food is still excellent and the wine list extensive. You can book the main dining room and... More

I was luck enough to be part of 2 amazing events held by my very close friends at this venue and stayed overnight on both occasions. Wedding December 2013 and Anniversary October 2014. Attention to detail and service on both occasions was wonderful. It is the small touches that make the difference. Staff are great, nothing is too much trouble,... More

Kate was really helpful in the planning and the execution,with the help of Tudor Rose florist the room was beautifully decorated and the music supplied by Estilo a brilliant string quartet. Nothing was too much trouble and all the guests staying at the Swan were well looked after. Suzanne from Wedding curls made the ladies look lovely. A really perfect... More
