This was a return visit (see Just needs tweeking July 2014) and I repeat my comment that the hotel just needs tweeking. Attention to detail would improve my rating of this hotel.The cooked breakfast was served deliciously hot in the parlour. Sombre classical music is played in the dining room and we found this to be rather uninspiring and depressing.Perhaps... More

So our apologies that this... More

I have given this hotel 4 stars based purely on my interaction with the team (if purely reviewing the team it would be 5). I stayed for 2 nights on Business. On the first evening I arrived early evening and was instantly greeted as I walked into reception with my booking to hand (it was very quiet and I was... More

Stunning old building amid beautiful countryside Interesting artwork throughout the public areas Room Manon, although on ground floor, had no view but lovely, spacious room. This is a hotel where you can take tea or drinks overlooking a pleasant fish pond or play or watch croquet on the lawn (weather needs to be pretty good of course) A stroll around... More

Thank you very much for your lovely review from your recent stay. It is a shame that we cannot offer views from all of our bedrooms, sadly with old buildings such as ourselves it is always an issue. The jewelry cabinet always does seem to claim a few victims on the way past it! We look forward to seeing you... More

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. The rooms were well appointed and clean with all the usual additions (FSTV, Tea and coffee etc.) The public areas were quiet and well decorated and the library had an open log fire lit which was very cosy. The restaurant served excellent food. The staff were all helpful and friendly.... More

We have been to Hintlesham Hall many times, and this stay was excellent. Very nice room over looking gardens. I walked to the Golf Club and hit some ball on their driving range (which was free but you have to collect the balls yourself which actually work very well), the course looked very nice but unfortunately I did not have...

We visited here on Mothers day as a family, staying in three rooms overnight for bed, breakfast and dinner. We have previously used the hotel dining for a 50th Birthday and a Wake and are familiar with it. As always we were treated very well. The rooms were excellent, and spacious with good bathrooms and plenty of hot water. Beds... More

Our first time here but unlikely to be the last. A handsome Elizabethan building with a Georgian facade means that there is bags of character to the place. The staff were all welcoming and helpful and the pace of the service was relaxed but efficient. We stayed in Ribbons which is featured in the picture and it was extremely comfortable... More

We have eaten here many times before, including Christmas Day lunch most years, and are never disappointed!! On Thursday evening, we brought two family members for their first visit and they couldn't believe how wonderful it is. Service impeccable, food divine and the ambience just perfect!!

Friendly staff, excellent service and a lovely room all added up to a fabulous place to stay - sophisticated without being snobby. We ate in the hotel both nights we were there - once in the large dining room and once in the smaller panelled dining room. The food was very nice (I wouldn't enthuse quite as much as some... More

This is where we go to for special occasions and we are never disappointed. Rooms are lovely, staff are polite, courteous and helpful with good sense of humour and nothing is too much trouble. Food in restaurant is fabulous and never know quite what to choose....so many options! Can't wait to go back
