Accommodation Description:

The Swan at Lavenham is one of the most historic hotels in Suffolk (if not in all of England!). The hotel dates to the 14th century, and the building oozes history from every darkened beam. Parts of the hotel once served as a medieval guildhall for Lavenham's wealthy wool merchants, and parts were a 16th century house. Within the charmingly restored interior you will find numerous original features, including an authentic minstrel gallery.

Located in the heart of one of the best preserved Medieval villages in England. The Swan Hotel boasts 4 lounges, 2 bars, 3 function rooms and 45 individually decorated bedrooms, as well as a 2 Rosette award winning restaurant making it one of the highest ranking hotels in East Anglia.
