We stayed for one night, dinner bed and breakfast. The first room we were given was very nice, charming and full of character, however, there was a problem, which was quickly and efficiently sorted out. We did, however change rooms and was upgraded to a suite. This too was very nice. The bathroom was rather small, with a shower over... More

A weekend indulgence enjoyed at the Lavenham Swan and Weavers House Spa. Purchased as a package represented a thoroughly enjoyable weekend at an amazing hotel in the amazing town of Lavenham in Suffolk. The hotel is a collection of iconic houses and is steeped in history, including a panel of signatures from War time flyers stationed at the many wartime... More

We stayed here for our wedding, although the reception was held elsewhere. The Swan is an amazing historic building, with corridors, rooms and features dating back 100s of years. Every room is different and is as well preserved as possible. Having said that they all have en suites added, heating etc so modern comforts in a period building. Service is... More

We had a two night stay as part of a tour of East Anglia and were not disappointed with the experience. This hotel deserves to be on the bucket list of most discerning people and we certainly enjoyed the experience. We stayed on a Secret Escapes deal which made the visit more affordable as the place is pricey however as... More

I went for lunch with my family here for a special occasion yesterday. While the food was very good the whole experience was soured by a very rude Maitre d'. He was not hospitable in anyway. He acted as if we were creating a problem at every instant. Even asking for a table when we arrived was met with a... More

My husband and I experienced a very good service, professional and - at the same time - kind and friendly. Breakfasts were rich and well cooked, and our only dinner at the breasserie revelaled a very experienced and creative chef. Our room was beautiful, with a comfortable bed. Since we had nice weather for most of the week we were... More

We only stayed one night at The Swan, whilst visiting family nearby. The hotel appears to be made up of several old houses in a row and has a small car park at the back and a pretty garden. There is a lot of lounge space, with comfortable sofas and armchairs and there are two restaurants. We had booked into... More

A beautiful, romantic historic hotel in the heart of charming Lavenham. We enjoyed a lovely room and several very good meals. The property strikes an excellent and tasteful balance between atmospheric historic architecture, elegant luxurious interior design and excellent friendly service from all the staff we encountered. All in all, a perfect base to explore Lavenham, the surrounding towns and... More

This looks like a lovely hotel but think we arrived at the wrong time. Arriving just after afternoon tea had finished but before dinner was served, we were hoping for a quick snack or a sandwich or slice of cake before we coninued our journey. At first we were told we could only have drinks as no food was available.... More

Lovely Hotel full of History. We had an upgraded Room (Heritage Bedroom) which was just lovely. It was a Birthday getaway and flowers my Husband arranged with the hotel, were placed in our room beautifully for the occasion. Meals were very nice and staff attentive and friendly, nothing too much trouble. We loved it so much we extended our stay... More
