    Individual guest reviews

    • Older travelers

      Room was very pleasant and good size

      Check-in procedure (using your booking confirmation) was very slow. When we came down to dinner at 7.30pm we were told the bar (there's no dining room) was full and we'd have to wait till 9.00pm. I complained next morning and was told I should have told the staff we were residents, but the person who told me to wait was the same lady who'd checked us in an hour before. Not impressed. We ate elsewhere which was difficult on a Monday as all eating places in Thaxted are closed and we had to drive to Saffron Walden!

      Helpful friendly staff, comfortable room at a reasonable price, perfect for my business trip.

      Staff were great - thats the positive. The location of the hotel is also good - very pretty village

      Room small and a bit stuffy and smelt of drains!

      Good value nice breakfast and convenient for Stansted. Interesting town too.

      Information from the booking was¸not acted on, I needed two adjacent rooms which was possible only because there were few other guests. My details had not been noted, even my country of origin had been wrongly entered.Does Slovenia sound or look like Poland.

    • Older travelers

      Well located and easy to find. Good beer wine and food. Easy car parking and the price was very reasonable. We will certainly go again.

    • Group of friends

      Hotel staff are excellent, very friendly and helpful. The restaurant food is good and the cost fairly reasonable in most cases.The hotel is in a lovely village situated within easy reach of the m11. Parking is good unless at peak demand, but there is a free public car park 2 minutes away.

      Dissappointed with the rooms we stayed in (one double and one single) were not up to 3 star standard and require refurbishment especially the bathrooms. This surprised me considering as it had stated in the information they had had a £300,000 refurbishment in the last few years. The water system in the bathroom was noisy when in use (I assume this was the pumps) The beds were extremely small in size especially the single beds. Ok for a child pre-teenager but not suitable for adults. Having informed the hotel manager and staff of our dissappointment of the standards of the rooms they did do all they could to help resolve the situation and make our stay a pleasant one.

      The staff were very friendly and helpful . The breakfast was plentiful and very good. We had to leave very early so we were left some cereal and fruit outside our room which was appreciated.

      It is a pub so there was a bit of noise Friday night when people were leaving but wasn't too bad .

      Very picturesque setting and staff were friendly

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The views from the rooms at the front of hotel, overlooking a windmill and thatched houses

      The noise of aicraft overhead, being in direct flight path of stanstead airport. Tight car parking spaces.

    • Single

      Prefer sleeping in a double bed so the single was a little uncomfortable. But that's me nit picking because the whole experience was really without fault. A very nice place to stay. Excellent food, excellent value. Spotlessly clean. What more could you want. Would definately stay here again.

      we had another lovely stay at the swan hotel. staff were very friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble, the food was very good and breakfast was good-plenty to choose from. the room was very comfortable and clean. we would stay again here.

    • Older travelers

      Friendly, nice rooms and "dog's allowed". Very good food.

      A bit hot. It was summer.There was a lot of traffic noise and the church bell rings on the hour so if you need an open window noise is a problem.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Beautiful old building with lots of character and superb setting overlooking Thaxted church. Food was excellent and really good value - we ate in the restaurant on both nights of our stay, service on both nights was very slow but it was very busy. Location was excellent for exploring the surrounding countryside and nearby Braintree and Saffron Walden. All the staff we met were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Have stayed here before and will stay again. Really appreciate the 2 for 1 offer which will encourage us to return very soon.

      The only small complaint is that we couldn't open the window which made the room stuffy and unbearably hot. I assumed it wasn't meant to open so I didn't ask - apparently it does open so, my fault, I should have asked. It is a minor niggle and wouldn't put me off staying here again.

      Beer. Staff. On first visit a bath towel each and 2 easy chairs. The village of Thaxted.

      On first visit (1st April) our bedroom window would not open and temp. in room was 30°C! A fan was found which helped a bit. All window woodwork covered in black mold. On second visit only one bath towel and easy chair for a double room.
