Strattons

***

Tucked off the high street of the market town of Swaffham in Norfolk, the family-run Strattons hotel is a beautiful Queen Anne Palladian villa. Whether you're in the mood for kitsch and contemporary or antiques and fabric-festooned decadence, each room is individually decorated with a unique theatrical flair. Not just a pretty face, the hotel has won awards for its restaurant and eco-policies; it's a child-friendly hotel, too.

Highlights:

  • Award-winning eco credentials

  • Unique and quirky art-studded decor

  • Family-run hotel and restaurant

Smith extra

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

We’re going to Strattons Hotel in Norfolk for our weekend away,’ trills my beloved, teasing a cascading curl. ‘It’s an eco-hotel,’ she adds chirpily. There is an awkward silence. ‘What?’ I bellow, tearing another leg of pork from my suckling pig – I always have suckling pig by the bed – ‘Do I look like a Prius-driving, recycling, hessian wearer? In a word: certainlynot.’ Obviously this isn’t exactly the scene; in fact, we have a Prius. And we compost. But I confess to some trepidation on hearing ‘eco-hotel’. Scratchy towels? Toilets flushed by buckets? Vegetarian broths? Family-run Strattons

Dining information

Restaurant:

The Rustic is celebrated for its organic and local ingredients such as tasty cheeses and free-range meats. Enjoy one of the inventive dinners daily from 6pm. Hearty breakfasts are served weekdays 7.30am–10am and weekends 8.30am–10am. The afternoon teas are becoming legendary thanks to home-baked delights such as poppy-seed cheesecake, moist chocolate fruit cake and lavender shortbread. Lunch is on offer in the Rustic on Sunday and Monday (noon–2.30pm); on other days it’s served all day in Strattons’ eco-friendly deli, CoCoes, right next door.

Top table:

Perhaps go for a corner table, the banquette at the back, or in summer, a window table.

Last orders:

Food: 8.30pm. Drinks: normal licensing hours.

Room service:

They can rustle you up supper from the restaurant; there’s an honesty bar in every room for late-night drinks. Carrot cake at teatime makes a nice complement to the in-room tea/coffee facilities.

Hotel bar:

There isn’t one as such but there is an intimate sitting room in which to enjoy a tipple of your choice – why not try an ale from one of Norfolk’s micro breweries?
