We stayed at the Randolph as a present from our daughter and son-in-law, for my husband's birthday. Our room was spacious but cosy on a very cold weekend. Everything was spotless. The staff were friendly and helpful. Donna was a lovely host. Food superb. We ate dinner in the hotel and our meals were well cooked and presented. This part... More

Just spent our third weekend at this hotel. It's clean, the rooms are big with tasteful decor, good food and staff. Just the right distance from Southwold, a brisk 10 minute walk to get the circulation going. Great value for money...a no brainer!

Another lovely stay at this family run hotel perfectly situated a mile out of Southwold, an ideal base for exploring Suffolk and Norfolk. If you have never eaten here I suggest you try it because the food and service are excellent with a varied menu which is freshly prepared and cooked. We love the big hearty Suffolk breakfast. A big... More

We went to the Randolph for the Sunday night steak night deal and had a very warm welcome on arrival and had the most amazing steaks. We would strongly recommend trying it out you won't regret it. Our kids loved it too would definitely be returning.

My wife and I were staying at her sister's in nearby Reydon. We had all been out for the day and the "girls" were tired. So I dropped them off at 5.20pm and decided to take the dog for a walk (pint included, obviously!). The "back bar" was immaculate, as was the welcome, not just by the "barman" who I... More

As I was in the area again I found myself once more visiting the Hotel Bar for a beer. As with all of my other experiences here, it was another good one. The staff members were friendly and service was efficient and prompt. The beer is always well kept, clears well, tasty and the glasses are never “just out of... More

We have stayed at this hotel for a weekend for a number of years now and it remains good. The staff are friendly, the rooms comfortable, the food good and enjoyable. There is a good list of wines at reasonable prices and the local beer is in good condition.

The building doesn't really have the wow factor as you arfrive - it looks like an old approved school. And the entrance-way and reception are a bit worn (tired even) - but this place soons grows on you. The room was large and comfortable. The bed relaxing and soft. The TV was good. The bathroom pleasant. Nice touches included leaving... More
