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

I stayed for one night. When I entered my room there were dying wasps on the window sill and also on the ensuite floor. There was also a can of Raid in the room, so the staff clearly knew that there was a problem. Why they didn't mention the infestation is beyond me, what would've happened if I'd trodden on... More

Windows had dead flies in them which been there a while so no proper cleaning can have been done We woke in the morning to find carpet wet as well as my belongings that had been on the floor. No chance of checking... More
