Well, good stuff first, the staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble for them, the locals friendly, we ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent, drinking beer by a roaring log fire, what could be better than that.
Now the not so good stuff. The room :-( tired décor, shower more suited to a caravan, carpet looked like Riverdance had been performed there in muddy boots. But although the bed wasn't the comfiest, it was clean.TV smaller than the remote and so old, the instruction book was made out of goatskin. Room was so dusty, I sneezed, and what I thought were lampshades disappeared. But do you know what? I'd stay here again.
Very good staff.
There was nothing not to like.
Ancient, characterful hotel, super friendly, helpful staff and proprietor. Bedrooms clean, comfortable, and cool (much better than the over-heated, air-conditioned modern chains). Comfortable bar with log fire and friendly locals, good regional beers and a menu with adequate choice well cooked and served. Breakfast in the restaurant was again excellent with fast friendly service. Ample free car-parking. Don't expect a pristine building with all modern conveniences, flat floors etc.. This building is 500 years old! All things considered, highly recommended.
Can't think of anything at all.
Good central location
Very basic facilities, tired decor, nasty greasy breakfast
Obliging staff, good food and a bar with local people in it
no instructions on how to access to car park on the one- way system in the village
Nice Friendly hotel pub with helpful staff, clean,Good bar with real ale and nice regulars .....but
in my opinion overpriced compared to most others hotel pubs in Norfolk & Suffolk. I stay in 2-3pw. Lacking a hotel ambiance.
The Hotel was well equipped with good facilities. We had a good night's sleep, in a clean environment. Excellent Breakfast.
All was fine.
It is located on the main street of a small Market town close to shops, buses etc. Although very old, it has been refurbished inside, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is included and very good. Staff are friendly and helpful and the pub Pub side I welcoming for either alcoholic drinks or just coffee. I like the way the management gets involved in local events and charities e.g.The Waveney Valley Arts Festival in the autumn.
Not much I don't like about the Swan, it's always been like a home from home fort me when I'm visiting my relatives who live nearby.
The staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. It is a lovely old fashioned building full of character in a great location.
They turf people out of the bar very late on the wknd (between 1 and 3 am) who then congregate around the nearby kebab shop making sleep a challenge
The historic nature of building and rooms
Good welcome and breakfast menu and service. Pleasant location but not the easiest car park to find with the one way street system. Guidance would have helped
They had other special town events on. If we had known in advance we could easily have come prepared to join in or stayed different days. Our room and a radiator which was on low throughout our stay. Fine in winter bit not so good in summer when a through draught would have been preferred. These would not stop us staying again
The staff were cery helpful and friendly
The quality of the room left a little to be desired. In need of a major facelift
really nice clean rooms and the food was excellent and good value for money and the beer wasn't bad either
nothing to dislike
Breakfast was OK, service good, staff friendly.
Carpet in room dirty,covered in spot stains, TV very small for room size. Curtain hanging off! Beds uncomfortable and would have appreciated more than 2 pillows each as my husband has breathing problems needs to sleep upright. A lamp on dressing table would have been useful especially as light in bathroom not working, note on it stated that awaiting electrician dated 2/6/14 we stayed at end of August!!! one of the mugs was chipped. Pipe from cistern to toilet badly scaled obviously has been leaking for some considerable time. Better maintenance would have sorted out some of these problems. For us not worth the money!
The staff were friendly and lovely
Small breakfasts and the bed was extremely uncomfortable

It is a pub and at the weekend it was a bit noisy to gone one.
Mattress uncomfortable , had to prop window open with books, one window the sash was broken.dead bumble bee on the floor when I arrived.
Friendly staff and talking. To. Local people
Night. Time. Traffic. Very. Noisy
This hotel suited our needs perfectly
Location, quirky nature of hotel and room, breakfast.
We should have asked for a quiet room as the Main Street is noisy till very late and again very early. Of the two windows in the room one had a sign saying do not open and the other had a roll blind that was stuck down and couldn't be raised.
Staff were helpful and friendly. I travelled to Harleston to attend my uncles funeral. One of the staff recognised my name and brought the local paper from her home. It had an article about my uncle on the front page. Breakfast was really good. Not greasy and not too much.
Lovely old hotel, very historic. Friendly staff, food good.
Hotel would benefit from some TLC.
