The Swan Hotel at Lavenham is steeped in history. The building is very old with origins in the 15th century. More recently, the hotel bar was a favourite place for British and US airmen in World War 2. They wrote their names, rank, squadron numbers and more, on the bar’s walls and over 70 years on these inscriptions, carefully preserved, are still visible. My wife and I stayed at the Swan - it was our first visit - for three days at the end of June. We had booked a classic double room and, after checking in, the receptionist, who was both helpful and charming, took us to our ground floor room with its oak beams and fragments of wall decorations from the distant past. The room was superb. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. We dined all three nights in the hotel’s magnificent Gallery Restaurant. The food was delicious and the service, exemplary. We look forward to returning. The Swan at Lavenham is a very special hotel!
