Positive Reviews

Lovely hotel

The Swan in rural Norfolk in Hilborough, Swaffham, enjoys a picturesque setting that guests speak appreciatively of. The rooms are cosy, comfortable and well appointed with great views and good amenities such a free, reliable Wi-Fi and so on. Though located on the road the hotel is quiet, with a field behind it. A great many guests felt that the hotel offers great value for money.

Welcoming staff

Several guests felt that the hotel staff is one of the draws of the hotel. The service is very good and the staff does everything possible to make guests comfortable, even going out of their way to accommodate guests if required. Any problems or miscommunications are quick to be dealt with.

Good food

The quality of food receives overall favourable mentions and the old pub is described as having a lot of character. The breakfast is described as filling and the beer is excellent say patrons. The hotel also has a pleasant sit out area that guests enjoy spending time in.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms and showering area

Several guests at The Swan felt that the showering area was too small for comfort. One guest also felt that their room as a whole was too small to spend too much time in.

Can get noisy

Rooms close to the kitchen can get rather noisy - as one guest pointed out the noise from the extractor fans was almost constant and quite disturbing.

No frills accommodation

The rooms are cosy and comfortable but not luxurious so guests expecting a little more came away a little disappointed. You must expect a no-frills stay and nothing more.
