  • Unworthy of 4 star rating or current room rate. More like a third rate B&B than 4 star…

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very expensive for the type of property. Seemed short staffed, as most hospitality places are currently. Staff were good. Breakfast very good. Biggest issue was the lack of sound proofing, meant we could hear upstairs guests walking and multiple TVs . Still keeping to the "traditional" throwaway hotel culture.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful and food delicious. The windows are single glazed and road noise audible. Overall the hotel feels tired but the staff and food made it a pleasant stay.

    Lovely staff, great location to visit many places around Suffolk such as Aldeburgh and Southwold, but not as busy.

    Overall an excellent stay. Rooms very clean and spacious. Bathroom could do with tiling smartening up but minor detail. Shower worked well. Food was excellent and plenty of it with friendly staff at all times. Good value for money.

    Highly recommended

    Our stay was wonderful. The Hotel is a lovely old grand building and the room reflected that in its size and the wonderful antique furniture everywhere. There was a large soft kingsize bed with a choice of pillows and blackout blinds for a good night's sleep. The bathroom was huge and light and clean and the shower hot and working well. No annoying shower curtains :-) There was a kettle and a choice of tea/coffee supplies and staff happily got me a little more decaff when we used up the supplies :-) We ate in the restaurant on one night of our stay and altough I certainly wasn't an easy guest to accommodate (trying to eat carb-free) they were happy to do a bun-free wagu burger and substituted the chips and coleslaw with a lovely mixed salad with tasty rocket and avocado bits. Breakfast is worth a special mention. We had salmon omelette and scrambled egg with smoked salmon on muffins, fruit salad and greek yoghurt and toast and jam. We saw the full English being served and it looked very tasty too. Due to the pandemic you have to pre-order the fruit, toast and side bits rather than having a buffet but it's absolutely fantastic and fresh and tasty. We will definitely go to the area again for a few days by the sea and there's no reason to look for another place to stay.
