Hotel has great potential and is a nice place. I would only use it for the location. It is a great hotel for anyone over 60. The restaurant full of elderly people eating lunch. They have a separate restaurant yet dinners all served in the bar. The smell of food put me off my beer. Waitresses in mini skirts? Really... More

I've not stayed here for quite a while due to changing work commitments. I used to be a regular. It has only improved since my last visit with a very tasteful room makeover. The staff are as friendly as ever and there's a lovely homely and trusty feel to it (no swiping of credit cards etc before you can check... More

I've been visiting The Cedars Hotel off and on over the last 18 years and I have to say I love it. Yes it is a bit tired and shabby looking, but that is what I love about it. I only go for meals, not to stay over and I have never had a bad meal, only very good. Its... More

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.
