After an extensive search on trip advisor by my husband to find a good pub to take my 92 year old mother in law to lunch we settled on The Swan. What a good find! We were served by a smiley friendly waitress and the beer and food were both very tasty. We will definitely return when next in the... More

I have just stayed four nights at the Swan hotel at Hilborough in the middle of Norfolk. The accommodation is to a high standard and my room was comfortable, very clean and had everything I needed. For breakfast each day, there was a wide range of choices and you could have whatever you wanted cooked deliciously and efficiently. For supper,... More

We paid extra for a suite which was in a converted barn/out-building. It was very warm and quiet, had plenty of storage, good TV and immaculate bathroom. The meal that evening was excellent. The bed was so comfortable we had a good night's sleep. Being behind the main building seemed to cut down any noise from the main road. Breakfast... More

A very enjoyable break . We stayed overnight, and found every member of staff friendly and helpfull. All our requests were met promptly with a cheerfull "can do" attitude. Please pass on our thanks to all your staff. One very minor niggle - there were only two real ales available.

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting family in the area. Really nice room with good facilities. Only problem was the noise from the kitchens late at night and early morning. However we would stay here again.

Because we visit The Swan occasionally and have always enjoyed the ambience and good food, we decided to make this the venue for husband's very special birthday and we were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere and the area dressed by The Swan a lovely touch especially for the birthday. Excellent food, the little folk well catered for. Service very good even... More
