As other reviewers have said, first outside impressions of this hotel are horrible - a two storey block - however, once inside it improves enormously. The reception are is quite impressive, to the left is an excellent bar and the reception rooms generally are more than acceptable.
Our large bedroom was admitedly a little noisy if the windows were left open (it was a very, very hot spell) but the double glazing was efficient and cut down noise from the A12 to almost nothing. There are trees planted between and the road and the hotel and they should cut down road noise as they grow up. We slept well on in a twin room and the bathroom was a good size with an excellent shower.
Food here was good and all the staff were charming and helpful. We found this a good centre for touring into Suffolk and will come again.
