Booked only the day before, we couldn't have made a better choice! Room 11 (a upgrade) was spacious, comfortable and pleasantly decorated. Lovely big bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Bed/pillows - perfect. Dinner was delicious and we were particularly grateful to the waiter who recommended a wine to complement our meal. All the staff we met were delightful.... More

The only reason I have not given it full marks is a glitch at dinner. The main course took a long time to arrive nearly an hour and was cold. But the manager to his credit apologised, made sure the replacement was cooked straight away and deducted the food from our bill. When it did arrive it was lovely. Really... More

Stayed here for the night in a premier room. Could not fault it. Southwold is beautiful as is the hotel. Would definately come back. The staff are very friendly and helpful, we were allowed to check in early as the room was ready. We didn't have dinner in their restaurant but choose to have fish and chips at The Pier.... More

The room was spotless and very comfortable with everything you would need. The bar and restaurant in the evening was busy but being a couple they easily fitted us in and it was worth it, great food and what a selection of ales. The breakfast was superb and the black pudding was delicious . mmmm. Would definitely recommend and stay... More

We stayed here in the family room with two kids aged 7 & 9 and the hotel was perfect. We were only staying for two nights for a wedding but everything about the hotel was exactly as you'd expect for a small pub/hotel in Southwold

Day five of our cycling tour of East Anglia. Today we are in Southwold (Aug 18th). We know very little about Southwold other than it's the home of Adnam's brewery and The Crown is something of a flagship for them. We were struck by how attractive this town looks in the late afternoon sun. The Crown is a grand Georgian... More

We didn't pre book this hotel but arrived in Southwold, looking for accommodation for the night. It turns out we were very lucky as they had a room available, although it hadn't been cleaned as the previous occupants had not long left. We were shown the room and accepted straight away, it was really lovely, modern and once cleaned spotless.... More

The whole family (eleven including 4 under fives) recently stayed for a long weekend and the facilities were outstanding. Rooms immaculate and large - especially for those with the children - service perfect and the food excellent. The complete 5 star treatment - and I recommend this facility for those who want to stay, those who want to eat or... More

Food was ok to good. But the menu seemed more limited. No single person served the table. We had a 20 minute wait for drinks and pudding menus (despite 4 empty glasses) - not acceptable. Lots of staff on but manger hadn't assigned anyone an area to look after or specific tables. This is very poor given the cost of... More
