        Nice quiet location,short taxi ride to Bury St Edmunds. Breakfast was good.

        In dire need of a spruce up however still seemed clean. The rookery in the surrounding trees needs attention as sleep is limited after dawn!

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Staff were very good and helped make our stay a pleasant one. The facilities were also good value

        Maybe needs a lick of paint in places

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Staff were very good and golf course looked fine

        very thin walls between rooms so could clearly hear everything going on in next room

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Good location. Pleasant staff.

        It was a bit "tired". Old furniture etc, pool reasonable though and undergoing refurbishment for sauna etc.

        10.0

        We found the suffolk hotel ideal for everything we needed. Staff friendly and efficient, room clean and comfortable, breakfast, service and facilities excellent. Good value for money.We would not hesitate to use again in the future ! Thank you .

        The only negative aspect was plumbing in bathrooms very noisy both in our bathroom and could hear pipes from other rooms as well.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Facilities and room very good. Food excellent.

        Shame that the steam room wasnt working and that the bar had a couple of loud drunk golfers in there watching The Open, who should have been told 'no more'' long before 7pm.

      • Older travelers

        We wanted to explore Suffolk and the hotel is ideally situated for this. We didn't use any of the sports facilities so can't comment on them. Our room was clean and comfortable. Food of high standard and there was plenty of choice for breakfast. Choice for dinner menu was limited (same menu each night of our stay) but quality was good. We very much enjoyed our stay in Suffolk and the hotel contributed to this. We would stay there again and would recommend the hotel to others, whether golfers or not.

        Only the limited Dinner menu.

        The staff were terrible and it was like faulty towers

        6.6

        Spacious clean room with comfy bed and quiet outlook. Staff worked hard and were helpful.

        Guest areas were tired and needed a spring clean. The reception was cluttered and unwelcoming.

        the sunday breakfast

        needs updating and bar shuts at 9pm

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        We booked in at 11pm and out by 11am which didn't leave much time to write a review, however what little we did encounter was not unpleasant, the breakfast had a selection of fruit, cereals, and a cooked english. Everyone seemed friendly even though a golfing match was taking place. We did get time after we had booked out to use the pool, jacuzzi and sauna etc which was most pleasant even though the showers afterwards were freezing (but I guess that was only a minor blip and will probably have been fixed by the time you read this). A brief but pleasant stay.

        Slightly stressy staff at breakfast - but as they were also on when we booked in late in the evening that could explain it.

      • Older travelers

        Nothing! Cold pool cold showers/mould on ceilings in room/poor food/no cold water in bathroom and toilet flooded!

        Rooms were clean and spacious

        Hotel was tired, in need of renovation

      • Single
        4.2

        Certainly not worthy of the price. had to wait an age for a table at breakfast. most breakfast items had gone only a few slices of bacon left and an egg (I was there way before closing time)

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        used the well equiped gym, visited national trust properties, enjoyed good breakfasts, relaxed and rested up

        the hotel looks a little tired and dated but still an ejoyable stay for the second time around, will be going back
