We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. We came hoping for a relaxing Suffolk weekend.
The bar, lounge and dining area are beautiful with log fires and the wonderful smoky smell that accompanies burning wood. Staff were accommodating and friendly.
We were shown to our room and sadly the great character of the main building was immediately lost. The room was small, characterless and rather insipid. We mentioned this to the manager and she was very happy to change us to a different room. However being a Friday night there was little available except a very small room ('Tern') in the main building. Although small it was less bland and so we moved in. Unfortunately we were woken early by the terrible creaking of the floorboards overhead. The noise was protracted and significant.
So we went back to reception. The manager was helpful and was happy to change our room. However she wasn't surprised by the noise, suggesting it might have been the kitchen.
'Third time lucky' was a larger room and was fine. However the walls are thin at the Westleton Crown and we heard more than we would have wished of our neighbours. Not a wonderful night's sleep.
On leaving the hotel, at our request, the manager was happy to reduce the bill.
We enjoyed the walks around the area and the bar and lounge at the Westleton Crown. The quality of sleep was low though and sadly it seems as if the hotel has not adequately sound proofed the rooms. We would come back for a drink, but wouldn't stay the night. A shame.
