It is many years since we ate at this hotel,name change and obviously owner change too. We were made most welcome from the telephone booking until leaving after the meal. Children were treated like adults and given their meals first which is a refreshing change. My sea food platter was lovely ,it is possible to have it as a sharing... More

We booked this hotel as we come to Southwold usually once a year as I hold shares in the Adnams Brewery, and can go to the AGM or some shareholder days to visit. We were charged £280.00 for 2 nights, and my wife said I overpaid. The hotel is an old building which has been renovated, we had room 8... More

This Hotel is a work in progress. New owners who have started the work but a lot more to do. The front of house staff are very friendly. However, the housekeeping is minimal. No real cleaning done on our 4 days stay. Beds made, tea trays stocked up and well as toilet paper. Bathrooms not cleaned and towels not changed.... More

Dear Sue Thank you for your feedback. Our refurbishments will continue once the summer is over and we will take on board all comments as we progress with them. Just to pick up on one point, in keeping with most hotels these days, towels are changed upon request for environmental and cost reasons. We will happily meet all guests requests... More

Very well located in Sothwould, small doubles (2 & 3) at the side of the hotel too cramped, dim and claustrophobic with a noisy extractor fan directly outside the window from about 8 am to 9pm. King rooms very well appointed, all staff polite friendly efficient and smiled. Breakfast and dinner food excellent, well prepared hot and plentifull. New owner... More

I was charged an enormous price (£90 for one night only) for just about a broom cupboard with standing and walking space of about 6 square feet. The shower didn't work and there was a gap under the window of about 3 centimetres. Luckily it was a warm night so it didn't matter that it didn't close. The furniture and... More

Had a 1 night stay this weekend. Had booked the Southwold Suite but was contacted a few days before arrival and was told the room was unavailable owing to an urgent repair. Richard could not have been more apologetic and offered an alternative room and a substantially reduced rate. Arrived and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was... More

Sorry to say a disappointing experience - we had called into The Blyth during the day to check times for dinner.
