Having travelled to this part of Suffolk for many years now, I have no idea how this place escaped our family, just found out my cousin even worked here!
The service is so, so good, you really can't put a price on staff like this, many, many hotels who charge twice the price to stay here, should visit and learn. We were so impressed, we became mystified that we had paid so much more in previous visits for much lesser accommodation.
The rooms were spotlessly clean (and my husband and I are very picky)! Very well decorated and very good sizes. The food was sooo tasty and again excellent value. It was just perfect to enjoy a glass of wine next to roaring fire.
The staff we so helpful, they really couldn't do enough.
We will not hesitate to stay here again. The pictures on the website really don't do this place justice.
