In the Suffolk countryside, between Bury St. Edmunds and Sudbury, this beautiful 15th-century building offers 4-star accommodation and a restaurant with 2 AA Rosettes for its fine food.

Lavenham is one of the best-preserved Tudor villages in Britain, and The Swan Hotel & Spa is perhaps one of England's finest historic hotels. The building has been carefully restored and beautifully renovated, with ancient oak beams, large open fireplaces and a minstrel gallery.

Decorated in warm, relaxing colours, the en suite rooms combine period features with modern facilities. Each includes a flat-screen plasma TV and facilities for making tea and coffee. The on site Weavers' House Spa has 6 treatment rooms, 2 relaxation suites, a sauna, steam room, spa boutique and an outdoor vitality pool and terrace.

The Swan Hotel & Spa serves modern British cuisine in its Gallery Restaurant, made using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Prior reservation is recommended. Guests can also dine in the informal Brasserie and historic Old Bar. Al fresco dining is possible in the garden, as well as fine dining in the elegant Gallery Restaurant.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.5 for a two-person trip.

Swan Hotel & Spa has been welcoming Booking.com guests since 2 Aug 2005.
