This small boutique hotel is right in the centre of Beccles, however the car parking was quite an issue for us, no car park really near to the hotel, and not knowing the area we seemed to go round & round the one way system looking for a long stay car park. Our room itself was cosy, warm and the...

The room was beautiful with little expense spared. Breakfast was really yummy and was probably worth the wait. Great location in the centre of Beccles but parking restrictions Monday to Saturday day time. Beccles is a lovely town with lots of quirky shops to nose around. Definitely would recommend for a short stay.

I stayed for one night whilst away on business and it was perfect. The rooms are so full of character and beautifully presented. The wine bar downstairs provides a relaxed place to sit in an evening and sample on of the delicious platters on the new menu. I was also lucky enough to be there on a Monday night which...

We received a warm welcome and served with drinks in a friendly and professional manner. The welcoming log fire and warm atmosphere added to the welcome. Once we were shown our table the server presented the menu and additional information about the meals and choice of wines. The meal was presented very attractively; the food was of high standard and...

We arrived in good time for lunch on a Sunday but were told peremptorily that (a) the kitchen was closed (at 1.55pm....) and (b) therefore there was not much point in having lunch first, whilst waiting to check in to our room at the advertised time of 3pm. Rather than spoil the afternoon with an argument, we went elsewhere to...

Stayed one night in Eln, what a delightful room so much care and attention has gone into every detail. Dinner was excellent. Breakfast was served at very sedate pace, which was perfect. Overall this stay - a birthday present for my wife from our children - was just perfect.

Room very good, think it was called Elin. Young lady who showed us to the room didn't know much about it including how to adjust the radiators as the room was boiling! No problem with smell as mentioned by other guests. After this it went down hill rapidly! We arrived down for dinner promptly for our 8pm booking. Finally got...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ideally situated in the bustling, traditional market town of Beccles, the Swan House offers beautiful and idiosyncratic room-only accommodation. Our distinctive rooms provide the perfect, cozy base from which to explore the Suffolk heritage coast, the Norfolk Broads and beyond. East Anglia at her most beautiful and varied is literally on the doorstep. After an intrepid day of exploring, come back to a delicious meal in our characterful restaurant, and a good night's sleep in a room designed to provide every comfort. Indulge in fully sprung mattresses, crisp white bedding and flat screen TV's. And all of this in a convivial setting, with open fires to warm you in the depths of winter, and al fresco dining throughout the warmer months. PLEASE NOTE: The Swan House Restaurant is currently closed for refurbishment and will re-open in April 2017. ... more   less
