This 4-star hotel is in Southwold town centre, 200 metres from the sea. It has free parking, a bar offering local Adnams ales, and an à la carte restaurant with 2 AA Rosettes.
Parts of the Swan Hotel date back to the 14th century. It mixes the traditional character of an English country house with modern comforts. Some rooms are in the main house, and some surround the garden. Original features include carved 18th-Century door frames and mantelpieces.
The Swan's award-winning restaurant serves modern dishes and traditional favourites, made with fresh, local ingredients. The hotel's drawing room looks out over Southwold's market square and offers English cream teas.
The traditional en suite rooms have a TV, hairdryer, and facilities for making tea and coffee. Some of the rooms look out over the garden and have their own patio area. Many of the rooms offer a glimpse of the sea, whilst the 17 Lighthouse Rooms are clustered around the old bowling green. Some rooms are located in the garden annexe.
The coast can be reached in 3 minutes’ walk, and there are numerous shops and restaurants available along the nearby High Street.
