There were lots of options, the quality of the food was...

We were pleased to be upgraded on arrival to a nice room with a view of the green. The room was spacious and well equipped with a comfy bed - we were surprised to have blankets not a duvet. cotton waffle robes and quality toiletries and biscuits made a very relaxing stay. We had a pre dinner drink sat outside...

We took up the Sunday evening deal for dinner, Bed and Breakfast and were not disappointed. The room was large and yes, it was warm but the fan and a big open window sorted that out. The food was uniformly excellent and the service beyond criticism.

If you want to wait an hour for a breakfast that has been baked dry then this is the place for you. Upper rooms unbearably hot and stuffy and fan does not work. Certainly not worth the money, distinctly moderate!

I was given a voucher for afternoon tea for two at the Black Lion in Long Melford. Oh dear, very poor. The sandwiches were ok but not very well presented. The scones looked liked 'value' super market scones. The tiny piece of chocolate brownie was not too fresh and the piece of cherry tart looked as though it had been...

Stayed for one night in the Chablis room, which has an inter-connecting room with bunk beds - ideal for families. As we only booked the day before, the hotel allowed one of our children to stay for free (the cost is usually a rather steep £37 per child). The rooms were both pretty small - the bunk bed room only...

A warm welcome on arrival and we were shown to our room - 10, Volnay. This was small but smart, comfortable and clean with a good sized bathroom. At first it appeared there was no hot water for a bath but then we realised the taps were mis-labelled. We were visiting friends so did not have Dinner in the hotel...

Everything about our stay was perfect. On arrival we were offered a free room upgrade which we accepted. The room was excellent and the bed was extremely comfortable. The food in the restaurant was fantastic. The staff were always very helpful. The surrounding area of Long Melford is charming and there are lots of things to do. We will definitely...
