Check in was good, most of the staff we encountered were pleasant. The rooms were probably as clean as the domestic staff could get them considering the very very worn conditions of the flooring/decor. In desperate need of substantial refurbishment, which I think from the noise under our room had began. Work started very early (for someone who was on... More

We have had afternoon teas all over the country and the one at Sudbury House was one of our best. The table setting was excellent with sparkling porcelain and cutlery and we enjoyed the sandwiches, warm scones with jam and cream and delicious cakes, along with a large pot of tea!

We booked for one night, it was pet friendly and we were warmly welcomed. Our room was beside the fire escape which was ideal for us. A large, beautifully dressed and comfortable bed was most appreciated. We ate dinner in their 56 Restaurant which was very definitely worthy of the Michelin chef. The food and service in the Restaurant was... More

First experience of afternoon tea today & indeed my last. Which is a great shame as I live locally & had high hopes. None of the cakes were good at all we came to the conclusion that the cakes were old. The scones had crusts. The cost is £20 & that is very high compared to fair better local competition.

Check in was very good, so we thought we were off to a good start. But there was a very bad smell in corridor. Our room was a long way from reception. It certainly was not the room we had seen on the internet. There were 4 visible holes drilled in the wall which had obviously been previously in use.... More
