What an ideal stop for truckers and hard working people. Great parking, big breakfast with quality food. Evening meal enormous and much appreciated, hot and well cooked. The big plus about the bar closing at 9pm is that at night, it's quiet. Ok my room was small and dark but it is inevitable that some rooms in an old place... More

A big thanks to Justin for assisting us with our booking for Saturday 11th April 2015 as we needed an extra bed in our room for our daughter at the last minute, we had a comfortable stay, very close to Ickworth House which is where we attended the Re-Enactments.

Quite surprise with all the negative comments here.. We stayed for the night because my partner booked us in a Filipino restaurant nearby. It's fairly clean, en-suite room, breakfast is not massive but it's enough, lovely lounge and we had couple of drink before we go to bed. The little girl who serves us breakfast is lovely as well as... More

We made a last minute booking for this hotel and were impressed by the friendly welcome and building full of character. The bed was comfortable and the room a decent size with modern en-suite bathroom. This certainly beats any of the nationally advertised budget chain hotels which lack the character and charm of this hotel - all in all very... More

This has to be one of the worst places it has been my misfortune to stay in. The food was appalling and the manners of the owners was frankly, unbelievable, even sending me to bed at 9pm when they wanted time for themselves.

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.
