I decided on a last minute trip with my Mum to Southwold. Having not booked anywhere we were very fortunate to be able to book into the Randolph on Monday afternoon for a nights stay! 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

As guests of uk cycling holidays, we were treated to a well known overnighting venue that their regular clients favour when touring the Suffolk Coast. We therefore knew all about the high standard that David and Donna with their team at "The Randolph" constantly strive to achieve. We were nevertheless overwhelmed with the overall standard that we experienced. A warm... More

Three generations of birthdays-mine 60+, daughters 40th on day of arrival, and grandsons 18th. So we thought we would treat ourselves with a short break. Decided on pub with rooms so grandson could buy us a drink! We needed somewhere dog friendly and this certainly was. Our border terrier Ben was made such a fuss of from wonderful friendly staff....

We chose this hotel based upon excellent and positive reviews. Had initially looked for a pub with rooms. The Randolph Hotel was even better than this, as our room (8) was larger than we'd have found in a pub and the bathroom was huge. The greeting we received from Cameron was friendly, warm and genuine. This set the standard, which... More

This is a terrific place that under promises - as a basic 3 star - and over delivers. Really nice friendly but not over fussy welcome, good service, spotless nicely appointed room, and comfortable bed; a lovely nights sleep. And, honestly, one of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten, in any hotel or any star. Brilliant value.
