“Overnight stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

My friend and I were booked in here for the night whilst visiting a friend in Ixworth. The staff were accommodating and 3 other friends who didn't stay here joined us for breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and comfortable and both of us slept like logs. There was a street light right outside our window but this went off at midnight. Would recommend

My wife and I stayed at The Pykkerell May 18 thru 21 during our travels around England. Originally we booked our room for 2 nights but our overall experience of great atmosphere with old world charm, good food & drink, a pleasant accommodating staff, and comfort won us over and we stayed another two nights. I would have stayed here for our entire vacation if it were possible. I've stayed at a lot of Inns/B&B's while on business in England over the years but few match the experience my wife and I had during our stay. I will definitely return to the Pykerrell whenever possible in the future. Highly recommend!

I stayed here for one night whilst on a work trip. The hotel itself was ideally situated to Bury St Edmunds and was a handy stop over. The choice of breakfast in the morning was good and the room was clean and tidy.

A special birthday celebration for my mother. The restaurant was not busy but we were told to bring our order to the bar - the sweet young girl then came to take our order(??) The menu was very restricted - with 2 starters (whitebait or leek & potato soup) Mains were roast turkey, beef, gammon, pork or lamb (£2 surcharge!) 3 desserts, one of which was off! Young waitress lovely but the woman training her was awful. Her manner was awful, her waitressing skills dreadful. She maintained her rudeness & unprofessionalism throughout our meal & she demonstrated her disdain for us at the end of our meal, when she brought out our handmade cake with the candles plunged into the cake without holders and sticking out if the sides at a 90 degree angle. Well, 1 up to her, she genuinely ruined that special part of the celebration for us. We have visited the pykkerell many times; thanks to the unpleasant attitude of that woman, we will certainly not go again in the near future. Nb we will be complaining to the management when one of them is available.

We have been coming to the pykkerell for nearly 2 years now and have never been disappointed with the food or service. It's a lovely location and nothing in the area can compete for menu selection, quality and value for money. It's great for a romantic meal for two or own your own if passing through and also as a family meal. Very friendly, helpful and polite staff and always a pleasure coming here. Definitely worth a visit. Spike Wilde and family.

Me & my partner + dog spent a very nice weekend end. Welcome very good & i liked the fact they looked after our food booking so we could sit in the bar with our dog.

Room was massive & although being dog friendly it was super clean & fresh

We defo come back & maybe spend longer

thanks for a great stay

We booked the Pykkerell as a party of 7 people that had come to the area to attend a dear friends funeral. We were pleased that we could all stay together in one place. There was no problem at all when I asked if me and my partner could come a day early. We found the Inn with no problems and parked around the back in a spacious car park. We were met as soon as we walked in by friendly helpful staff who helped us to our room. The room itself was gorgeous, clean and spacious. The meal we had that night was excellent the service received was good the staff are helpful and friendly and I was pleased that they catered for vegetarians. We were all doubly pleased that the inn had a fish theme and it was fitting to us as we all met at a fishing venue and most of our party are keen fishermen/women.There was a really nice friendly vibe in the bar from the staff and the locals. The weather stayed nice as well so we sat out in the courtyard at one point. It was nice and quiet on the first night but did get busy and full on the second. I thought I might have a problem sleeping that night but it was just like leaving the television on. I slept soundly the bed was really comfortable. The breakfasts were really good too. Overall we were all really pleased with our stay and we cant thank the owners and the staff there enough. We are hoping to make it an annual stay in honour of our departed friend. I would recommend a stay here if you are in the area.
