We have just returned from a one night stay and unfortunately we were not impressed. We had to wait quite a while before a member of staff arrived to check us in. We made a mistake by not paying extra to upgrade to a suite. We were in room 5 which is very small and as it is in the... More

Booked a suite, which was a little on the small side but very comfortable. During my stay I looked at a Feature room, very impressive (and less expensive). I would book one of these on my next visit. The restaurant was very good, most staff were very friendly/professional. The bar staff often left the bar unattended, leaving us with empty... More

A truly memorable dining experience. We were fortunate enough to be able to sit outside in comfort, though just in case...blankets and heaters were available! The staff were welcoming, and friendly and the menu choice wide ranging but not too long. We chose from the fixed price options and were very happy with that. The food was very well prepared,...

There's much to like about the Great House. For a start, it only has five rooms, so it has the feel of a boutique hotel rather than some corporate establishment. However, it's a moot point whether it's really a hotel, as there's no lounge or bar for the guests and reception is actually in the middle of the dining room.... More

I just love this restaurant! the food is always a delight, the staff are charming and everything is done with great style and charm. It is one of those 'feel good places' and I have always left feeling life... More

Now Lavenham is a great weekend escape for the busy professional - the stress slides away and a stay at the great house provides a perfect hub for that weekend - elegantly understated scrupulously clean -efficient discrete service and great rooms with quirky decor- and then there is the food we suggest you go explore the area car - foot...

Our third visit. Stayed in the Tudor Room this time, wonderful comfortable room oozing with charm. Food was excellent again, service friendly, informative and unobtrusive. It's simply a great place to stay, unwind and relax. Will be back.
