We were shown to our room on the top floor by a friendly and helpful guy. The room was very dated although efforts had been made to smarten it up. Room was hot and the windows were sealed up- probably good as the pub is next to a busy road. The Wi-fi did not reach to the top floor. i...

A large pub on a crossroads with a carpark onsite. I noticed hoarding up on arrival and when it was booked there was no mention of building work being carried out. I was shown to my freezing cold unpleasant out dated room and was told the heating would come on soon and it would be toasting later! After an hour...

We were shown our room on the top floor which was very difficult to access, up winding narrow stairs. The staircarpet was worn out and threadbare. The bedroom carpet was old and stained. We should have moved on but it was getting a bit late to find elsewhere. The shaving point didn't work either. Rooms were artexed and really ready...

Shocking, dirty and grubby! The carpet was disgusting, stained so bad I could not walk bare footed. Old fashioned furniture, what can I say it was appalling, dirty and grubby. I am not going to waste any more of my time on this place it was so bad I didn't even stay the second night I had booked for even...

Booked two night stay with plans to travel into Southwold and surrounding areas. On site parking en-suite breakfast and reasonable price Disappointing from onset, front doorway boarded up, stair carpet well worn and room dated and whiff of damp. Staff friendly and easy walk into town Breakfast was best part of the stay

My first impression of this hotel wasn't good. Some of the frontage was boarded up. A car had missed the junction opposite the hotel and gone through a window previously. The building was awaiting repair. The sign as you go in the entrance says please use other entrance. Apparently that was for the bar area. The reception had a beautiful...

OK, some reviewers will knock a place without finding out the facts. Yes it is dated but we took the time to talk to the staff and found out that the Manager was about to take the pub on. We met her at breakfast and had a chat with her, she's under no illusion of the task ahead and we...
