We recently stayed a night to attend a wedding on the premises, but I'm not sure we'd stay again. It's a lovely hotel, rich in history...which is fantastic. And to give credit where credit is due, the bride and groom seemed extremely pleased with how smoothly their day played out. Everything fell into place. As it should be. The wedding... More

Fantastic building in the heart of the most interesting village of Long Melford. Stayed one night at this extremely historic Hotel and it was a last minute booking. Nothing but praise and highly recommended. Comfortable room and bed, at a competitive price. First class supper in the bar and fine, plentiful and tasty breakfast served by two warm and welcoming...

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Bull Hotel in Long Melford.This was a last minute booking and we were lucky to get the last room available. Our bedroom was very nice with very comfortable beds but maybe needed an update. The breakfast were excellent and the two evening meals we had very good, well cooked... More

We stayed at The Bull for two nights in the Melford Suite. The room was delightful- very spacious and a comfortable bed. The staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. The breakfast menu was superb and the food delicious. We would highly recommend this hotel. Mr and Mrs Rees

Made to feel very welcome by helpful,willing staff but the biggest downfall was the toilet in the ensuite being wholly unreliable.It had clearly not worked for some time and reception knew about this.Apparently, they are not permitted to undertake maintenance without permission of the owners who are unnecessarily slow to respond to their requests.We gave up using it ultimately.This is...

My wife and I stayed 2 nights from Saturday until Monday in a large, comfortable and clean room. However, we arrived during a large wedding and the car park - in which we had been assured of a place - was completely full. We had to fight through wedding guests to reception, where we waited for 10 minutes to check... More

Stayed in room no. 4 at front of hotel, supposed to be haunted, no ghosts visited me! Comfortable bed but room very warm in August, slept with windows open, car park at front and resident wedding party did keep us awake. Breakfast was excellent. Would stay again requesting room away from front entrance. Paid £85 good value.

Attended a wedding in September last year and hadn't returned since, so we decided to go for a meal here (2 couples) and the choice of the food and the quality of the food was very good. One negative was that the lady serving was incredibly slow so we ended up leaving the restaurant to ask someone else to get... More

We had a lovely couple of nights here for a weekend break. Lovely sized room and very quiet. Great to be able to take the dog with us. The hotel is over 500 years old and has some amazing old parts to it. The staff are very down to earth and friendly, unlike some historic hotels that seem to have... More
