"Fabulous! Stayed in room 10 -The Suite (we were upgraded) for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Staff were very welcoming, the suite was fabulous, extremely comfortable, cosy and immaculately clean. Food was amazing too with great service and lovely ambience. Would definitely recommend and would stay again too. Thank you for looking after us so well!"

"Spent the evening with friends at Long Melford Swan. Had never been before but went on a recommendation, we were impressed by the decor and felt comfortable with the ambience. The food was amazing scallops to start- a real taste of the sea. Pork belly next, the little drops of flavour were incredible. And to finish the biggest soufflé I have ever seen. The staff were fantastic and we were allowed to take our time - we were last to leave. Well done to the kitchen and front of house."

  • Matthew P

"We came for the first time this weekend, we had a bed, dinner & breakfast stay. We stayed in room 2, it was really fantastic - the food was top notch and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Literally cannot fault our stay & we will be re booking another stay in the future."
