If you're planning on staying in the area, ditch the hotel and stay here. Eileen was the perfect host and made our two day stay really wonderful. She made us feel so welcome and every detail had been thought of. The house and grounds are utterly stunning. You feel like you've truly stepped back in time 400 years.

I imagined that staying in this 16th century country house would be special but my expectations were exceeded during our absolutely delightful visit. We enjoyed outstanding hospitality, as well as meeting other guests over an excellent breakfast. Our rooms were very comfortable, attractive, light and airy. The owners are to be congratulated for putting heart and soul into restoring this... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are lovely and clean and well equiped. The breakfast is excellent and the hospitality is fantastic. Eileen never seems to stop and she has always got time for you and a smile. The hall is superb.

I went to stay for a night and immediately wished I had stayed longer. The owner - Eileen, couldn't have been more accommodating. Such amazing attention to detail in all that was offered. I will definitely visit again and would highly recommend a stay in West Stow Hall if you're in the Bury St Edmunds area. First class :)

The weather may have been patchy for our 3 day stay but the welcome and the hospitality at West Stow Hall was consistently fantastic. The property is stunning with lots of quirky interesting features and you are made to feel more like friends at a country weekend house party than paying guests - nothing is too much trouble for Eileen...

This B & B is first class. The setting is amazing - very relaxing. We enjoyed relaxing with a book one afternoon on the lawns. Monty (the very friendly dog) was always on hand to keep you company and so were all the lovely birds. The room was brilliant. Very large! We have stayed in "period" B & B's before... More

We stayed at West Stow Hall for three nights during July 2014. This was a wonderful experience from the time we arrived when we were served tea and cake until moments before we left when we were given a tour of the house by our host Eileen. Breakfast followed by a walk around the grounds was a perfect start to... More

We really felt as though we had stepped onto the pages of history in this rambling, early Tudor property. Our welcoming hosts had prepared a light supper - as requested - which we enjoyed in the dining room before moving into the lounge where they had thoughtfully lit a fire.

Where to start? This is an amazing B&B, comfortable, quiet, beautiful, historic and really really friendly. We stayed here for a big family birthday and the hospitality was fantastic, going far beyond what you would expect. The rooms are very comfortable and mostly quiet, although the floorboards in our room creaked, but what do you expect from a building that... More

It was my second trip to West Stow Hall with my Dad and it was just as much fun as the first time. Eileen is the landlady and nothing is too much trouble for her. There is a wonderful variety at breakfast and there is lots to do around the area. Eileen owns a very friendly dog called Monty. I... More
