We had read some really encouraging reviews by people who had eaten at the Randolph Hotel in Reydon. It looked a good place for us to celebrate our (48th) Anniversary this week. The Randolph does not look particularly attractive from the outside so we decided to call in for a beer to look for ourselves. Nice atmosphere inside and the... More

Dear Reviewer I am sure that potential guests will read with delight the great reviews we receive from actual guests that actually dine with us. I am sure that these guests will also read your pointless 'review' and judge it with the value it deserves. Our winter warmer Wednesday nights are incredibly popular, RABBIT PIE included!. In fact it is... More

Spent four nights here recently paying a bit more for a better room (room 6 first floor). Great welcome on arrival, Big case carried up for us. Room clean and efficiently valeted.

We stayed here in 2011 for our honeymoon. The hotel was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were extremely clean and the breakfast was lovely. Not enough adjectuves to describe how nice it was.

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.
