The Swan - refurbishment update

By admin, also posted in News on

View of Southwold lighthouseThe builders have been busy and we’re already seeing some great progress with our much-loved hotel. The Cygnet building is now taking shape as our new visitor centre, although as you can see from the photo, we have much work still to do! The bar extension is also underway.

The builders have found some asbestos, as is the case with lots of old buildings, which clearly needs removing. This means that our intended date for opening is now in Autumn rather than June. We can’t yet give a specific date, but that should become clearer in the next few weeks. If you’ve got any questions on progress, please email our hotels team at [caption id="attachment_18282" align="alignleft" width="300"]The Swan bar extension Bar extension[/caption] We’ll keep you updated with more photos and progress reports soon.
