I can only echo what most others seem to be saying about the Randolph. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights over the August Bank Holiday and selected Room 11 executive double based on reviews and photos of the room, which were all accurate. Lovely big room, nicely decorated and with a large bathroom (shower over bath) down... More

Stayed for 3 nights in August, at relatively short notice. Allocated a pleasantly large and clean room on the first floor, overlooking the front of the hotel. Although there was a small bike rack outside, we were able to store our bicycles in the kitchen outhouse, which was locked overnight. We dined in the restaurant on our first evening, which... More

A fine comfy hotel, perfectly situated for visiting Southwold, with a short walk into town. Our initial welcome at reception was friendly and most helpful and during our short stay we found all the staff helpful and accommodating. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was surprisingly busy for a Sunday evening, we soon found out why as we... More

The staff could have not been friendlier and if you are looking for a comfy hotel on the edge of southwold this is perfect. Its not trendy, or modern but just very friendly and un-assuming. Bathroom was a little basic and tired but breakfast was first class and a lot cheaper than staying in southwold itself and just a 15min... More

We stayed in room eight which was clean and spacious, however you could hear every movement from next door. Also I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast but I think that's me being fussy, it was very very greasy and no bake beans. However, the hotel was close to the town and severed it's purpose.

Dear HollyDolly888 Thank you so much for your humorous review, at first I thought you had Killed a Dolphin?

First visit to Southwold since 1976 and I wasn't disappointed, Stayed at The Randolph and I would heartily recommend this small, intimate and yet busy hotel.

What a gem, a lovely room, polite staff and an excellent breakfast. We have stayed in other hotels in Southwold, one of which has a... More

We have been regular visitors to the hotel for some years and our last stay was in June. As always, Donna, David and their team could not have been more hospitable and helpful. Our favourite Room 2 was great as always and the hotel food was perfect. David introduced me to some new Adnams beers including the new lager. He... More

We stayed at The Randolph for three nights during the Aldeburgh Festival. It was excellent value for money. Plusses were the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, two good chairs in our big bedroom, and the quality of the food in the restaurant. Details which held us back from giving five stars were the lack of space in the bathroom... More
