Strattons is an independent family run hotel secluded in the historic Market town of Swaffham. Owners Vanessa and Les Scott met at Great Yarmouth Art College and began restoring old properties before purchasing Strattons in 1990. The site has developed from a rundown private listed building into a quality award winning hotel with a reputation for strong environmental ethics. It now boasts 12 sumptuous bedrooms and suites, 2 one bedroom self catering apartments, a 40 cover restaurant and an onsite café deli.
Each of the 12 bedrooms and suites is a unique haven with luxurious private baths and showers. From the Red Room, with its carved four-poster bed, open fire and sumptuous fabrics, to the Opium suite in tranquil creams and whites where the freestanding bath sits at the end of the bed with room for two, to the quirky Linen room, open plan with a theatrical touch and huge decked balcony. There is a blend of comfort with beautiful things collected and loved; an environment that is glamorous, yet immediately puts people at ease. Family rooms and pet friendly rooms are available.

Swaffham is a thriving and bustling Norfolk market town located in the fascinating and historic Brecks; 370 square miles of forest, heath and farmland. It is a truly unique landscape whose origins go back to the ice ages. Swaffham remains the elegant architectural gem it was in its Georgian heyday, with many Georgian and Victorian façades concealing the medieval originals. Strattons sits in a quiet, concealed yet central private close in the town, an ideal base from which to explore Breckland, Norwich, King’s Lynn and the coast –if, that is, you can tear yourself away from the hotel with its luxurious tranquility and delicious food.
