Very pleasant hotel with plenty of character and a warm welcome. Lovely chat with Jenny ( I think it was Jenny) in the morning . We found our room -the Wingfield nicely appointed although having read the other reviews wonder where the biscuits were!! Staff were very friendly without exception and breakfast very enjoyable. I found the bed very comfortable.... More

some nice ideas but let down by the execution: cooking, cleaning, maintenance all a bit weak - have had much better at this price. but a nice, central location in this pretty market town. i've ticked the "no wifi" box - in theory they did but it wasn't working

I have not stayed at this pretty old town inn but have eaten in its restaurant. I've been eating about a lot recently and have come to view the chip as a good litmus test for a good place. I dislike limp papier mache sogginess, demanding a crunchably crisp exterior to a chip that tastes of quality potato. The Castle's... More

This is a lovely old inn that's been sympathetically restored. It's now a bar/restaurant with rooms above. We were in the area for a wedding and chose The Castle from the TA reviews. We had a lovely welcome from the staff, easy check in and then shown to our room. We chose the slightly bigger one at the front with... More

The hotel is in the centre of the delightful town of Bungay. We had a pleasant welcome on arrival, and were shown to the characterful Mettingham room for our one night stay. It is an old building and the floors are a bit sloped and the stairs up to the rooms are very steep. The room is full of character,... More

This was our 1st stay in Bungay. What a little gem. The Castle Inn is excellent and the staff very accommodating, especially Jenny. We originally tried to book 2 nights, but they only had a room for 1 night; we booked and asked them to let us know if a 2nd night should become available - which Tanya did. The... More

I ate here around Feb 2014. Having eaten off the December set menu I was expecting good things as I had a very good meal in December 13. I ordered the lamb along with my girlfriend, presuming this would be similar to my meal in December. It was not, it was very plain, served on top of some mash &... More

This was our second stay attending a family wedding in the Town. If you want a real Inn, with first class food and service near Bungay this is the place to stay. We had dinner on our first night from the new menu and it was exceptional; breakfast on both mornings was first class and they were very happy to... More

A very warm greeting on arrival and an excellent bedroom. Our room was Caister. It was spotless with excellent bathroom. Our breakfast was top class and local produce was used. Our only regret is that we only stayed one night. WE SHALL RETURN FOR LONGER! Gerald and Joan Wilson
