My wife and I stayed at the Pykkerell Inn for two nights whilst our daughters were both away on school trips. The hotel is an amazing old building with a great outdoor space to sit out weather permitting, it also has a huge car park and free wifi. Dating back to 1500s or so the building is full of character and has the feel of a great old pub. I know from other reviews, and talking to Paul and Tristan the new owners, they have only just taken over and from what I can tell they have really concentrated on getting the food and ambience right. We had two evening meals and two breakfasts. All were excellent, home cooked food and the breakfasts in particular were one of the bests I've had in a hotel - all cooked after ordering, not all sitting on a hot plate.
The room we stayed in was comfortable and attractive, with an enormous TV, tea and coffee making facilities, including real coffee and cafetiere and free bottled water, but it needed some TLC in the bathroom which I know is the plan for the near future for all the rooms.
Although on the high street there is little traffic and there is easy access onto the A14 to go out and explore the local areas. We did a trip to Lavenham and one to Angelsey Abbey, both less than 40 minutes away.
All in all a lovely stay.
