I needed to find somewhere in Sudbury to stay overnight in order to attend a course early the next day. Google mapped the town centre and found The Black Boy. Booked through Booking dot com (Not recommended as they failed to make it clear that the arrival time needed to be before 20:30 a fact that I discovered at the... More

Stayed here for one night with my wife and one year old son in one of the family rooms. The rooms were very clean and modern and the bonus of having adjoining rooms was a real plus. The owners and staff were rally helpful and welcoming, and couldn't do enough for us. We eat dinner and breakfast in the hotel... More

Room was fine but could have done with a desk for the business traveller. The shower and bath was a bonus. Food was fine. Breakfast is not served until 07.30 weekdays which, for a business guest is too late. Staff pleasant .

Just returned from two nights staying at the Black Boy. David & Sharon are so friendly and David cooks a mean breakfast! All freshly cooked - not left standing on some hot plate like in many bigger (and more expensive) hotels. It's brought to your table too so no messing about lifting lids and serving yourself. Plus it's locally sourced... More

We did not stay at the Black Boy as we are quite local but were shopping in Sudbury and just called in for a drink. My partner and I were enjoying a drink when our teenage children joined us. Before we could even order them a drink and think about food we were informed that children are not welcome in... More

The food here is really nice and tasty, the choice on the menu is limited but the quality of this makes up for it. My only concern which people need to be aware of is there is no disabled toilet or access due to the age of the building, pensioners on walking frames can manage but there's no good handrail... More

We stayed at the Black Boy last night. We were attending a wedding in the area, and picked the Black Boy for its location. The lady who checked us in was friendly and efficient and quickly sorted us out with cabs for a journey to the venue and our return. The room was clean, simple and suited our needs. However... More

Good food, the room was quite basic but the bed was comfortable. The stairs to the rooms are quite narrow & steep not an issue for us but could imagine it could be a little tricky fir some. If you're not familiar with the area the car park is a little tricky to find but certainly an added bonus. The... More
