Business meal with colleagues and had the mixed grill. Was extremely nice with a great steak portion. Service was quick and efficient. Not the most attractive of rooms to eat in, 4 of us were quite cramped round a pillar.

lovely stay in fabulous Long Melford. Great value in a fantastically historic old Inn. Really can't quibble for £70 room. Excellent breakfast. Had issue with electric in room upon arrival, but this was rectified in 5 minutes - thank you! Friendly service. Would happily stay there again - perfect location for this beautiful part of Suffolk.

Just returned home from three days at the Bull, felt that we got exactly what we expected. Quirky room, perfectly adequate and clean, enjoyed the food, we ate in for our evening meals as there was a deal for prebooking. Found the atmosphere very enjoyable due in part to the friendly and efficient staff. Excellent breakfasts and thought drinks prices... More

Stayed at The Bull as we were attending a family gathering. The dinner was adequate hotel food, but 5 small scampi served as a main course and after everyone else had nearly finished their meal was a great disappointment. One dessert was served cold as they had forgotten to microwave it! However, the staff were delightful and our room was... More

We stayed overnight at The Bull where there was also a family party. They made us very welcome and enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was outstanding, something for everyone. We did find drinks to be expensive and we felt they were understaffed at the bar

Just returned from a one night stay at this Old English Inn. A really nice place to relax. Friendly efficient staff, clean and comfortable. Reasonably priced and scrummy breakfast, will definitely return.

Hotel is nice, full of noisy old dears this evening all talking at each other. The bar room isn't particularly comfortable to sit in, full of sofas and set out like a restaurant. Now here is my bug bare, this hotel filters its WIFI, for what ever reason, so if you're working on the internet and searching for something that... More

Hotel full of character with experienced and competent staff. Nice welcome on arrival at reception and we had been given the 4 poster room since we had upgraded to superior anyway and the hotel was not full. Restaurant was not opened for either Tuesday or Wednesday night but presumably not enough bookings so just the bar was in use. Same... More

Very nice hotel. Dated, but in keeping with the age of this hotel. Food was fantastic. General service was fantastic. Unfortunately, Long Melford seemed to close by 4pm, so coffee and cake was not to happen.
