Probably the only thing going for it was it's accessibility to the main road passing bury and Cambridge. I was greeted by two house flies in my "suite" that instantly flew into the biggest collection of cobwebs I'd seen, saved me chasing them down I suppose. The ensuite was the smallest, and being 6'5" struggeled with the toilet that dreamt... More

I went to this B&B a couple of weeks ago with family before a wedding. My sister booked in advance but we were told via her mother, who rang up the place a week prior, that we could only check in between 11am-12pm or after 4pm. We had to arrive at the first slot so left early for the 3... More

Just returned from a few days staying at the White Horse Inn. The Inn is very clean and comfortable, the rooms are large all en-suite bathrooms, the staff are most welcoming.. Good full English Breakfast. Situated just off the A14 it is just 4 miles outside Bury St Edmunds, a lovely place to explore, Its also central for touring the... More

Was horrified to read the poor reviews the night before we checked in and my wife said lets just pay the cancellation fee and go somewhere else. Rocked up expecting to view the room and say "stick it" and go somewhere else. It is a hundred year plus old building so was expecting a rustic atmosphere and thats what we... More

Warning do not stay here it's a scam. Very very poor. Take your money by credit card but don't want you to stay. Be carful. Choose elsewhere. This is without doubt the most awful place ever. Fawlty Towers was better than this kip with little around it.

Had a special Birthday Celeb lunch this weekend. Had to stay the night. here in Risby. On arrival, we couldn't get in because the door was locked. Called the number on the door and no answer. After finally getting in, we met a lovely lady who runs the hotel. The White is not too far from Newmarket Racecourse. There are... More

Place was ok. We didn't mind waiting over 25 mins for our main courses, however when we then tried to order dessert at 1 minute past 8 and we're told that the kitchens closed at 8 we were very disappointed after our long wait. Room was a little scruffy, with a broken pain if glass in the window.

Situated at Ridby on the old A14. Main traffic ran behind the property. We stayed in the front so do not know if noise was a problem. The old A14 was quiet but there was a lorry park nearby and the occasional lorry would pass by. Proprietors were welcoming. The décor generally looked tired. Our room was a decent size... More
