    Why do we keep coming back? Only because of meeting up with friends/family. Otherwise we like Southwold but The Swan has seen better times, and the owners - Adnams - are taking their customers for granted. One day they will get a shock - hopefully...More

    Thank you for your review. Apologies if the Lighthouse Rooms weren’t to your taste, many of our guests prefer to have access to the gardens, but if you were expecting period charm then we recommend you book a room in the main hotel next time.
