Much improved service, staff really helpful. Love sitting by the fire relaxing at the weekend. Food reasonably priced and generally good quality, only issue we have had is the steaks are tough. Located in the beautiful village of Long Melford walking distance to the lovely National Trust Melford Hall and the still privately owned Kentwall Hall. Both hold events throughout...

I delayed this as I didn't want to rain on their Christmas parade. Our lunch visit was disappointing. Good-natured staff were struggling with a plethora of menus - bar, set, OAP and more. We waited forever and were told that our order was mislaid. Another couple also, which means the kitchen couldn't cope. Food was disappointing with inedible hard vegetables....

The Bull Hotel Long Melford, Suffolk, is a quintessentially Tudor Village hotel with a welcoming friendly staff. The Bull's central location is perfect for exploring the village by foot or exploring the area by local foot path or road.

I can completely recommend the Bull Hotel for a wedding. Nothing was too much trouble.Wedding breakfast was lovely and efficiently served. Staff were incredibly helpful and really helped everything run smoothly. Plenty of rooms for family and friends to stay over and we even got together again for an English breakfast. If the car park had been a bit larger...

This place is steeped in history and located at the top of the high street. Plenty of places to park if the rear car is full as it only holds around 10 cars. Comfortable bedrooms and a lovely breakfast room with beautiful fireplaces and heavily beamed ceilings. Great value for the price as we had a code from one of...

We stayed for a long weekend in a double room at the front of the property. The room was extremely spacious with a comfortable sitting area near the large windows. Despite the age of the building and the cold weather during our visit, the room and, indeed, the rest of the building was always warm and comfortable. The included breakfasts...

We stayed here on the 28th Dec. 2016 for 2 nights to unwind after Christmas. We have stayed before about 6 times or so.. It still is an excellent place to stay. All the staff are very friendly and cannot be faulted. What we like about this hotel is all rooms are a bit different and because it is many...
