“Homely and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I have stayed at the hotel for the past three weeks, the staff can't do enough for you, (if there is something you want just ask and it doesnt seem to be a problem!).
The food is amazing and they cater for every taste.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable.
The staff are very friendly and welcoming, you can tell this is a family run Hotel due to the care and attention given to each and every guest (they know your name not just your room number).
Whilst staying here I was working shifts, they were considerate and understanding of my sleeping needs and the fact the I wouldnt always be able to make the allocated meal times.
The only issue I had was parking, but the staff helped round this and would advise where my vehicle would be safe.

Room Tip: Room 11 was my favourite room out of the 4 that I stayed in throughout my stay, its big with a nice...

Rooms are large, clean and comfortable with all mod cons and facilities.Food is superb and staff friendly and efficient. Parking is the only real issue here as space is limited. There was a bit of noise in the rooms that are directly over the bar area late at night but the staff were quick to move us to rooms more quiet, with no fuss at all.
Thank you for a lovely stay. You made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Should I need to stay again in the area I will definitely choose the bull

Stayed at this location for 12 days & nights for work purposes.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and presentable and the food has been great.
Due to shift work I was coming and going at various times of the day & night. The staff always tried their best to accomodate any changes that were required even providing a pack lunch to take with me.
The rooms vary in size and due to my shift working and the length of stay I have stayed in 3 of them, so I may have seen more than most! despite that and as i have already stated the rooms are clean and well equipped with staff servicing them every day. The beds i found to be comfortable, the noise levels again vary and if you fancy an early night then make this known at the time of booking so you are not directly over the bar & resturant area. The bathroom facilities also differ from room to room so again if you prefer a shower or bath then just ask and the staff will do their best to facilite this.

Overall the hotel is in a great location and if you like a bit of history and variety in your hotels then this is a great place to stay. If you want everything to be the same and without character then find a premier inn!
Many thanks to the staff at the Bull Hotel - ill be back!

We've just returned from a one night stay at the Bull Hotel. We stayed in room 18 on the ground floor in the hotel grounds. The room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The bar staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious. We found our hosts to be very helpful and friendly making for a lovely weekend break. We will definately be returning to the Bull.

Spent one night recently. we had a room outside main hotel, felt rather isolated. But it was a very large room with a decent bathroom. Breakfast was lovely. The Hotel is in a very good location in central Woodbridge.

Stayed recently for one night and was well received. Old hotel with no lift, so if stairs are an issue either get a lower room or book elsewhere. Room did not keep its poor Wi-Fi signal and needs a booster.There was no light at the small table which made work there impossible until I moved one of the bedside lights to make do: this is a basic detail which should have been sorted by a simple facilities check for each room. Supper was a poor show. The dining room was poorly lit, badly attended and the food was quite tasteless and unattractively presented. Breakfast saved the day as it does with many hotels of this standard, although again the staff needed to be more engaging.I had to pay two bills, one for the room and one for the evening meal: unnecessary.
Would I stay there again? Probably not. The management need to look at their operation to see how they can make it better, seeking independent advice. They need to survive and need to try harder with some gentle direction. Good luck for the future!

Room Tip: Check room allocated and location if you do not like too many steep stairs, however quaint.

We were in the area for a family wedding and several guests stayed at the same time. The first thing to remember is that this lovely old hotel dates back to the 1600's so there are no lifts and if a lift is important to you then don't stay here. We had a room on the second floor, the stairs are not for the faint hearted but we coped ok. If you have difficulty with mobility book a room on the ground floor. Our room was spacious, and clean. The beds were comfortable with extra pillows available The bathroom was large, with a decent shower over the bath with plenty of hot water. Perhaps a mat in the bath would have been helpful but we used a hand towel. The hospitality tray was not replenished on our second day, neither were our glasses washed but that was a minor blip. The food for our evening dinner and breakfast was excellent. The breakfast was cooked to order and plentiful. You make your own toast which means you can have it hot, or cold, as you like it. However the kitchen serves your eggs on toast if that is how you like it. I noted other people have complained about noisy music from the bar but there was no noise for the two nights we were there. The car park is very small. All the staff were charming and efficient. If in the area again we would certainly be happy to stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room if any mobility problems.
