Can't believe the really bad reviews, we paid £65 a night for two nights with a baby in a double room including breakfast. The room was really big and had a balcony overlooking the golf course which was great for a summer drink whilst the baby was sleeping. The room and bathroom was clean and tidy and I'm pretty fussy!... More

First impressions ok with attentive staff on front desk but hap hazard route to rooms. Smell of damp in corridor. Bedroom itself was large and reasonably clean. Shower could be better. Meal in restaurant was poor, little imagination on the menu - stressed staff who took ages to take an order, deliver drinks and serve the meal . Breakfast was... More

On arrival all seemed ok, opened the door to my room everything went down hill onwards. Room was freezing cold, grubby stained carpets, not particularly fresh feeling, bathroom not cleaned to a level I would expect, I cleaned it myself, the shower was either cold or scalding, ceiling has mold on. Had a meal in the bar on my first... More

Room requests at the time of booking are rarely even looked at in this country - I've always wondered why the question is even asked as hotels simply give you the room they want to give you. Not so here. I asked for an end of corridor room and that's exactly what I got. The check-in took less than a... More

I've been a member here since 1995 and every owner that takes it over says they will do something to improve it and they never do. It ought to be the premier leisure property in the area but it is very third rate unless you just want to play golf - not a bad course and the pros are good.... More

It seems from reading the other reviews that the point that have been raised have still no been addressed by the hotel. The ceiling in the hallway from the bar is still leaking, the cobwebs in the bar are still there, and the receptionist was inappropriately dressed and didnt really seem to know how to use the computer system, and...

From the photos on the website I was expecting a great deal more than the reality! A very tired shabby hotel, stained carpets, chipped paintwork , and very lacklustre. The ceiling of the corridor to the restaurant and bar was leaking badly and it was obvoius that the fault had been there for some time. I was on a business... More

I decided to go away for a quick break. I wanted to use a spa and didn't want to go home until the next day so that I could relax after my treatment. Initially, when I arrived, I felt disappointed. The decor is really tired. The hotel seems very clean but frayed around the edges. This sense of disappointment was... More

I have given my stay a rating of average but it really should be average +. Having read some of the earlier negative reviews I was really concerned that I was going to have a disappointing birthday weekend but I have to say that both my husband and I felt that we were treated very well during our 2 night...

I am a frequent business traveller and have a wide experince of hotels across the country and abroad ranging from very, very good to terrible.

Dear Hotel Reviewer, I am saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us at The Suffolk, admittely I would agree that the Suffolk is in need of some refurbishment and I can assure you that the owners of the property would like nothing more than to see it restored to it’s former glory. I hope that... More
