We have just had a few days in the Parkhill. It was meant to be one day but we stayed on because it was so great. It’s a hotel of real character so it may not suit people who like a minimalist, sterile environment. But it honestly doesn’t get more relaxing and it’s astounding value for money (check out the...

Stayed here with work (someone else booked it) when you drive in, the grounds look great, upon opening the front door you are met with a musty smell and dirty looking carpets, walls and skirtings. I was shown to my room, which had a padded fabric headboard, really old fashioned curtains (complete with terrible stain) with matching lampshades, carpet in... More

I went on Saturday to a wedding at Parkhill, Oulton, Lowestoft. The food was very hot and impressive. Well done to the chef!! This is the first wedding I've been to in a long while where all the courses were hot, the food was nice too as well as the service we recieved from the staff.

Stayed in a few hotels in the last couple of months and I have to rate this one as the worst. Good points....the staff and the grounds. Bad points......out of date, needs an upgrade. Bar snack menu is priced way to high, spag bowl is £12. Floorboards creek with every movement. Tv in room in deeper than it is wider.... More

We have stayed here two or three times a year for the last 5 years and have to say that the service and the food is always second to none. Sure some of the communal areas are showing signs of wear and tear, but the lounge/bar is comfortable with a log fire and the bedrooms are warm and quiet. Just... More

If you want a modern hotel this is not for you, but if like us you prefer excellent service and superb food then this is for you. It is clean, well staffed, quiet and has grounds to die for. We went for an auction being held in the Barn (a large function room adapted from (you've guessed) a barn and... More

Stayed here for a wedding. Our first reaction was awful, musty smell, old tired, reception area in wrong place. (I should have known this as the web site is dire and in need of a make over!) We had travelled along way and just wanted to relax drink in bar and a meal in the restaurant. But were told that... More
