We stayed at the hotel to celebrate the wedding anniversary of friends. Whilst we knew Lavenham and the Swan Hotel we had never stayed there, what a wonderful experience. A very friendly welcome, a good sized room, tastefully decorated and well appointed. The food, both the snacks and the main menu, all of excellent quality and so well presented. The bar, particularly interesting because of the WWll USAF and RAF memorabilia is very relaxing and so very "British" with all the oak beams. The bar is very well stocked especially if you like Scotch Whisky! There are so many places you can sit quietly or spread out with friends. All the staff are friendly and attentive providing the highest level of service but very much from the background. To those that have read any of my other reviews will know that we do not like over attentive, pretentious fussy service but nevertheless like quality and good service. The Swan provides everything that we seek from an hotel, they certainly made our short stay a very relaxing, happy and memorable one and would definitely return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestling in the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury, is The Swan Hotel in Lavenham, perhaps one of England's most iconic hotels. The Swan dates back to the 15th century when it played a key role in Lavenham's wool trade. Today it is a quintessential English country hotel and restaurant, proud of its achievement of AA 4 Red star, two AA Rosettes & Visit England Large Hotel of the Year 2013. Ancient oak beams and inglenook fireplaces blend beautifully with rich furnishings and fabrics to create the perfect ambiance for rest and relaxation. The historic old bar boasts a wonderful collection of memorabilia, including a wall signed by British and American airmen stationed at Lavenham Airfield during World War II. The Swan is a wonderful place in which to celebrate a variety of special occasions, including romantic weddings, christenings and family get-togethers. It is also a unique venue for seminars, meetings and conferences, where 15th century inspiration combines with 21st Century innovation. ... more less
