Had a delicious open air lunch in June.There is an interesting giant tree outside and an ornamental well. The staff were friendly, efficient and not intrusive and brought the food quickly. Plenty of room to park on the day we were there.

We were a party of four. Stayed here for one night last week, the room was very nice with a very comfortable bed, beautiful bathrooms and housekeeping is kept up very well, room maids were very friendly.. Restaurant not so good I'm afraid, queuing at the bar to order food was tedious, seemed short staffed waiters were rushed off their... More

My husband surprised me by booking a night at Milsoms, 27 years after holding our wedding reception here when it was the Dedham Vale Hotel. Rather a disappointing start, as our room was not ready, and cleaning it had not even started at 3.45pm. Apparently the previous guests had late check out, which I think should only have been permitted... More

Great food. Amazing room and luxurious bed. Service second to none. A must place to stay if in the East of England. I stayed here for business and could not have been more relaxed and welcomed. Parking was easy. Room was spacious. Food was high standards. Such friendly staff

Visited as part of a wedding party, beautiful gardens and warming staff. We were allowed to check in early which helped us prepare for the day, room was perhaps a little small for the cost and the plug in the smaller sink was blocked however I would revisit as this minor inconvenience easily fixed.

My husband took me here as a surprise visit for me for our 7th Wedding Anniversary. On arrival I was blown away by the beauty of MIlsoms. The decor and service are excellent. Our food was delicious and so where our hot beverages. We will be visiting you again quite soon. 10/10. Keep up the great work.

A splendid old house, set in superb landscaped gardens, with easy parking and well sited to tour this lovely area. Our room (premium Superior) was spacious and well equipped and we were well impressed by friendly, well trained staff throughout. The resturant is somewhat idiosyncratic with not even residents able to book a time or a table. In fairness, this... More

Just arrived home from Milsoms Hotel in Debdem. What a great place. Rooms are nice and very functional with a great 'dustbin head' shower over the bath. The bed was to die for. Over my 59 years I have slept in many beds and this was probably the most comfortable of the lot. We purchased a bottle of wine to... More

We had to split the weekend between the Pier at Harwich & Milsoms at Dedham as neither had a room for two nights. We got the best of both worlds and found both had their strenghts yet were clearly run by the same, professional, company. Very busy on Sunday afternoon, only to be expected on a bank holiday, and yet... More
