Hubby booked The Oak Room and it didn't disappoint. Hotel setting wonderful next to Oulton Broad, gardens lovely but unfortunately old Mother Nature decided that it was monsoon time so could not have a good look around this time. Restaurant and its staff excellent. Must give a special mention to the lady in reception. Cannot wait to visit again shortly.

Excellent setting. Drawback is restaurant. Food overpriced for quality experienced and lacked range Restaurant staff very young and lacking experience. Room average but bed squeaked with every movement. Standard of cleaning excellent from cleaning staff.

We had an 80th Birthday Party last Sunday in the Garden Suite and would like to thank Keith and his staff for looking after us so well. The food was delicious, the staff were charming and the setting very pretty, all of which made for a most enjoyable afternoon.

We stayed with our son in a double room . Room spotlessly clean and very quiet . Staff could not do more to help to the extent that they even supplied a travel fridge for my husbands insulin . Perfect location for southwold and other places . Breakfast lovely with vast choice of high quality items . Would definitely recommend... More

Fabulous setting - beautiful building/décor, service very good/attentive, and the grounds are stunning. Such a lovely place to sit and have afternoon tea on a summer afternoon. However - the TEA was rank! Awful taste, weak, not pleasant with an aftertaste and in fact, when I asked for a refill I asked for Earl Grey thinking it would be better.... More

We booked 2 nights in a family room through Hotels.com as we were impressed by the photos and on balance the reviews seemed very positive. Our room rate was £185/night and so we were expecting it to be pretty decent. On arrival we were told we were staying in room 3, that, being a Sunday, only a carvery was available... More

We chose this pet friendly hotel for a two night anniversary break. We arrived early and whilst waiting for check in explored the extensive grounds and the footpath alongside Oulton Broad which is accessed from the gardens which have many seating areas including a secluded summer house. Once we had been warmly welcomed we were shown to our room(none of... More
