We were staying one night for a dinner and dance that was held in the Suffolk Suite. Our room, which we upgraded, for an additional £20 had a large patch of mold on the wall, and we couldn't open the window, even though we were able to unlock it. The plumbing is very noisy, so much so it was like a comedy from a 1950 film. The bath was a tad too small to be able to lay down in,even though I am of average height, but at least the water was hot. We had to walk outside to enter the Suffolk Suite, where ball was held . Fortunately it wasn't raining, but it was extremely blustery. One of the advantages of staying in a hotel where the ball is held is that you don't have to step into the open whilst wearing dance shoes, that are not made for such an activity. The dinner consisted of soup, that was of a greenish tint, that was listed as potato and leek, but if I hadn't read the description I wouldn't have guessed. The main was chicken that was dry, the roast potato's skins were hard but not crunchy. The vegetables were crisp and the gravy was good. The sweet was an apple and plum crumble tartlet that was small and very hard. In fact too hard to cut with my spoon. The custard was good but very meager in quantity. Returning to the room our bed was too soft for my liking and the duvet too thick. This made the bed too hot and we were unable to reduce the temperature in the room by opening the window. The breakfast was average although the hash browns were greasy and the large bowl of scrambled eggs was one solid lump. I asked for two poached eggs that the duly served. One was excellent and the other completely solid. I understand the hotel is in the process of refurbishment as it is sorely needed. The only bright spot was the staff, that were first rate, from the receptionist to the bar staff and all the waiters. If our room was in fact an upgrade, I hate to think what the standard level was like? Collapse

Just back from 2 night stay with friend. We were on line dance weekender. Our package was bed breakfast and evening meal, food very good. Menu choice at lunchtime was good if you felt you had room for this after a big breakfast. Staff very pleasant and trying to accommodate everyone. There had been a lack of communication concerning the meals which the staff were doing there very best to resolve. I understand the hotel has only recently been taken over by the Best Western chain and is in the process of a refurbishment. Some of the rooms had already been refurbished, we had one that had yet to be done, although a little dated was clean. The room score given is based on the room we stayed in. Would definitely return if we were in the area. Collapse

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights having booked via BW to ensure we got a refurbished room. On arrival check in was swift, and out room allocated. We were given 101 on the ground floor nearest to the bar. The room has twin beds, provided the necessary comforts (tea making biscuits, iron etc). We wanted to open the secondary Windows for air, and on reporting to reception, a member of staff quickly came to our assistance, and opened both windows. Staff were friendly and understanding particularly when our remote seemed to be defective. Again quickly came back with two new remotes and resolved the issue. Couldn't fault the staff. The room had been upgraded in terms of fixtures and fittings but the bathroom was in need of upgrading/refurbing. Outside our room was a fire door which caused some disturbance with opening/closing but we were able to put up with this and didn't complain, but might annoy other guests. Breakfast was lovely with choice of cooked, cereal etc and on the Monday was cooked fresh to order as there were so few guests. Overall, this is a decent hotel and once fully refurbished should be much nicer, but for the price we paid represents good value. Collapse

There was a massive mix up (not the hotels fault) by BW over our room,but the hotel did everything to put it right. Natasha was brilliant and Kate as well went out of their way to make sure we had the best stay. The hotel is lovely and breakfast was great. We had the bar meals which were a high standard. The whole area is really nice and the hotel is extremely quiet. Despite a wedding being on, we never heard a thing. If you are planning a visit to Suffolk this is a great place to stay. Collapse
