We had a wonderful overnight stay at Lydney House. We were warmly welcomed by out host David and shown to our very clean and comfortable room. On arriving back after our party we enjoyed a few drinks in the well stocked bar before retiring to our warm room for a wonderful nights sleep. Wifi is not great in the room... More

We stayed for 2 nights at end of November 2014. The host was extremely welcoming, coming out to our car (in the rain) to help carry our luggage to our room. Wow, never had that before - fantastic. The room was warm and comfortable. Breakfast - rate it amongst the best we have had (and that includes some 5 star... More

Lovely spacious Georgian rooms with new superb bathrooms, and comfy beds. Great little bar that even has real ales on tap. Awesome breakfast to soak up the excesses a night out at Swafham's great restaurants & bars. We'll be... More

We stayed for one night last weekend whilst visiting family in Swaffham. As soon as we parked up the owner came out to take our bags and welcome us. Our room (number 5) was spacious and well-equipped (apart from the usual tea, coffee etc, there was bottled water and glasses) and the beds were extremely comfortable. The furnishings are country...

What a lovely find, warm reception on arrival, warm cosy bar. I booked a single room as I was travelling for business, I wasn't disappointed, spotlessly clean, very comfy bed. Can't recommend highly enough.

Lovely comfortable place to stay. Excellent breakfast again and lovely hosts. previous reviewer who called it just a guest house doesn't know what they are talking about: I have stayed in room 5 twice now and the traffic is really just a murmur. Regarding the wildlife - don't book a country hotel then! Speaking as a lone traveller it is... More

We arrived late in the afternoon without a booking, and were warmly welcomed. Our room was just lovely, very comfortable and clean. We were made a coffee and delicious home made cake, which was very much appreciated after a long drive. Walked a short walk into town for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and very promp. Loved the house and grounds.... More

Your heart doesn't leap on approach, confronted with worn out Tarmac drive, weeds sprouting from the guttering and flaking pointing in the bricks. BUT the welcome is very affable and warm and mine hosts are always on hand ? Too much, such that every coming and going is acknowledged. Our bedroom was large and shabby and the ensuite was a...

I was in Swaffham to visit an elderly relative, and staying in such a lovely, comfortable hotel was a real bonus. I arrived in Swaffham on the bus from Norwich, and the hotel was just a short walk away, so it is not essential to have a car. The owners gave me a warm welcome and I felt very much... More
