Stayed for one night and Sorry to say I wouldn't stay again. The whole place is crying out for refurbishment. The staff however were very friendly and a credit to the place. It was convenient for where I was working and the breakfast was adequate. Not much more to say really

Used the Cedars Hotel for an eighth birthday party. Fantastic night had by all, staff could not do enough for you. Arrived pre party to set up and found most of the setting up already done. Buffet was plentiful as we gave relistic numbers of guests. All evening staff were very attentive and helpful. Many thanks. Would recommend

We've just returned from three days at The Cedars. The staff were very friendly and helpful (especially when the shower didn't work) and the food was good but the hotel needs refurbishing. In particular the carpets are very tired and give the hotel a musty smell. Years of grime have built up. There have obviously been some improvements made, for... More

My husband and I have just spent 2 nights at this hotel. The room was cleaned to a high standard, furnishing were very good and the room was cosy. The 2 breakfasts we had were equally as good. We also eat at the hotel and dined on good quality rump steak and gammon. The banana split was served with fresh... More

We stayed at the Cedars Hotel in Stowmarket on 23rd of April, for one night, which was pleasant enough but not good value for money. The breakfast in the morning was awful, toast was thin and only lightly toasted, the tables were small therefore a party of four could hardly move, not a pleasant experience. Rooms are pokey, and very... More

After reading the poor review, I felt that I had to add my opinion. My party had a great meal, staff very attentive, plenty of food including plus wine, good value for money. Have been before, will definitely be coming back and not just for Xmas.

We recently booked a table as a party of 10. We were allocated a large table in the Bar lounge. The Service was quick and efficient, with the staff being very obliging, polite and helpful. The Menu choice was varied, with sufficient choice to suite most tastes. The food was prepared and served nicely, and we had two courses within... More

Thank you for your review and your kind comments. We do acknowledge there are cheaper places to eat in the area but we do try to serve freshly prepared food (sourced locally where possible) and, as you say this cannot be done at rock-bottom prices. We look forward to seeing you again at The Cedars More

Following numerous Christmas day visits to The Cedars covering a period of 20 years I felt the need to offer my experiences after reading a recent review. I have never commented on a review site before but felt that the great food and service needed defending following one recently derogatory comment on this site. I was in attendance this past...

I went here last night for a meeting and had booked their room with a finger buffet. One of my colleagues called yesterday afternoon to confirm numbers, but was told that they could not provide the buffet. However, what they did provide was a great Pie and Mash for us, which i have to say tasted great and an ideal... More
