On arrival to this hotel, it was soon apparent that this was a very run down hotel in need of much refurbishment. My room (22) smelt damp. The covers were sent to be white but were yellowing. The food was served in the bar among gossiping staff and was average pub grub. Room 22 is near to reception and you... More

Cheap cheerful and to the point. I booked late and had a really nice time. The room was clean and tidy. I was a little dubious of the pics i saw on line, but gave it a go anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful. One minor complaint, there were some workmen in the bar, using bad language and the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and I am very sorry to hear that your experience at The Cedars was disappointing. I accept that at the time of your arrival, the staff were fully stretched following a lunch which had over-run but this is in no way an excuse for an unwelcoming greeting. Please accept my... More

I stayed overnight here on business. Good location just a couple of minutes off the main A14 and close to the town. Older building and some parts probably need refurbishing but overall it is very nice indeed. The staff were without exception, bright, friendly and considerate. We were in the bar very late, and the staff went home but were... More

We had a finger food buffet in the bar/lounge area the night before the wedding with about 30 of the guests. We then had the... More

Approx 1 mile out of Stowmarket (shame) this accommodation was adequate for our needs but the staff were having difficulties in `delivering` our food to the right person - too much shouting !Having said that choice and quality good and re-`-furbishment` acceptable

We stayed at the Cedars for 2 nights in early September,2013 having booked via the internet much earlier. Our welcome at reception was very friendly although the receptionist was rushed off her feet and could have done with some help. Our allotted room was high up in the roof through a veritable rabbit warren of narrow passages, numerous doors, steps,... More
