    The owners of the pub/hotel are the loveliest people! They made us feel so welcome and were so helpful and accommodating. It is not usually the sort of place that I would stay in but I would definitely stay there again.

    The owner and staff were very helpfull and friendly; the owner even drove me 6 miles from Ipswich to my meeting.The room was huge and warm, T.V. 40'' SKY. Breakfast excellent, even with proper sausages, not plastic.

    Due to current building work, the breakfast room was a bit cold, however once finished this will not be a problem.

    The rooom was clean

    Newly refurbished room but the TV didn't work. No hot water. No staff available to provide breakffast in the morning. The evening meal was very basic with little choice.

  • Group of friends

    Hotel was close to town centre. Rooms were clean. Shower worked fine, plenty of hot water. Quiet. Comfortable beds. Good breakfast (not included in price). Party of six - we were the only people staying on our part of the hotel.

    Nobody available to check us in. We had to call a telephone number which was showing on the door. It was cold and wet and my elderly mother-in-law was not impressed with that! When somebody arrived 10 minutes later to check us in he was not aware that we had booked (two months in advance!).

    i dont understand the diference between not liking the hotel and having a complaint ! there was no key for me on arrival , I had to ask for towels , and there was no hot water in the morning for my bath

  • Couple
    4.6

    The room was a good size and it was easy to walk into town.

    There was no hot water to run a bath and that was one of the reasons we choose the hotel. The shower was scalding then cold! There was no breakfast included. Very basic accomdation, for the price you dont get much!
