We have been here before and enjoyed the experience. This year was another winner. Food was great and the programme of events ( walks and music as well as food) really well planned. The menus for 30th and 31st December were imaginative and well cooked. Service was immaculate. Our rooms were spotlessly clean but the age of the building ( which is medieval ) means that the layout of the rooms is quirky and can feel a bit cramped. However it is such a fabulous experience that it doeas not detract.
The town is lovely too with lots of interesting buildings, a good information office and some decent tourist orientated shops. There is one decent art gallery shop too at the opposite end of the town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestling in the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury, is The Swan Hotel & Spa 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
