I booked a 3 night stay through Groupon, which also included a meal voucher for the first night. The hotel looked really inviting in the photos, but it exceeded our expectations when we arrived. We were given a courtyard room, which was really spacious, and included armchairs

I rang up on the day and booked a table, we decided to book a table in the bar area, not the crooked barn, as can order of both menus in bar. Service was good, food was very reasonably priced and portions were of a good size, will definitely go back here.

What's the local area like?
I would have answered the same as Edloon below. We were there only a couple of weeks ago and to be fair the town was very quiet I imagine in the Summer with the boats around going along the broads it has more life. Highly recommend Southwold though about 25 mins drive away.

"Don't just go for a meal.. book a room and relax.. treat yourselves.."
"Courtyard rooms are slightly cheaper. The bathrooms may be better, but the bedroom is not (according to one reviewer)."
"We wanted a double but were only offered a twin as it was the last room available."
"Ask at reception for room details. However, all rooms are quiet."
"All rooms are good so no problem with any particular allocations"
$166 - $220 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
