Choice of sparkling wine/champagne poor and £78 for a bottle of champagne was rather expensive

Considering the issues with Covid 19 we had a faultless dining experience. I understand that there were less choices than normal but we didn’t have any problem with that.

It is obvious you have put alot of effort in to making your customers feel safe. It was lovely! Only improvement to atmosphere would have been the pianist

This is a beautiful hotel. Everyone we met was polite helpful to a fault and friendly. Spotlessly clean and they have mastered a way to keep everyone safe in this new world without losing any of the enjoyment of staying in such a special hotel. We will be back.

I wanted to say a sincere thank you to all the staff and the thoughtfulness that had gone on behind the scenes. The staff showed so much kindness in a situation where anxiety was present in everyone. It was moving to see how much care they all showed. In addition the food was delicious. I would certainly recommend the Swan as the perfect place during this time of a new norm.

Fantastic food, lovely Sunday lunch in the gallery, great service and James, the Manager is such a star, a real asset to you, all really really good, only comment I would make is that in the absence of a pianist, some classical music on a music system would have added to the atmosphere and empty tables could be laid, just to give the room more appeal

Lovely last minute stay for 2 nights after we had a trip to Amsterdam cancelled but we love coming to lavenham and the Swan hotel especially this is our second stay but we will be back.. everyone was as you would expect lovely food and friendly staff but obviously the atmosphere was a bit strange because of the corona virus situation which is effecting us all! Just hope it’s over sooner rather than later so we can all get back to normal.. thank you Swan for looking after us..

Lovely atmosphere especially with the pianist. Food was ok (Sunday menu). it was good value for money but I prefer the a la carte menu. We were a bit disappointed to not be offered any rolls but other than that the staff were attentive.

A very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of seating in the various lounge areas to relax and enjoy an after meal coffee.
