“Peace and Tranquility”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

This is a little spot of Heaven tucked away in Suffolk. Close to Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, so an ideal base for day trips. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable bed, large bathroom. Doors open out to a large garden area where early morning and twilight, rabbits, squirrells and abundant bird life amass. Our host Debbie was very welcoming. Breakfast was freshly cooked at a time suitable for you, with a choice of cereals, yoghurt or the full english with tea/coffee and toast. The Inn also boasts a restaurant where we ate on the first night. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I would recommend use of a sat nav for getting about as set in a miriad of country lanes and would be very easy to get lost, but this all adds to the charm.
Would definitely return.

On arrival at the chequers we were made to feel very welcome by the lovely owners. The accommodation is lovely, set back away from the pub in beautiful gardens with a river running along the bottom. We were allowed a late check out as they had no one else checking in to our room the next day, they also made us an amazing fry up! We Really enjoyed our stay at the chequers- really lovely friendly people, they made our stay one to remember.

rooms are tucked away from pub and overlook river with busy local wildlife, fab location to visit surrounding suffolk attractions (aldeburgh and orford short drive away). Friendly hosts. PS: Rolls Royce parked in the grounds is eccentric!

We stayed in a double room which was very comfortable and very smart. The hosts Debbie and Ron were such nice people that you just feel that you want to return again soon. The breakfast was excellent, we also booked and had our evening meal in the pub resturant which was also very good indeed.
There are many places to visit within a short drive. We visited Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Snape Maltings, Framlingham Castle and Parham Air Museum which is open on Sundays. I can recomend all these places to visit but of course we all like different things.

This was a return visit to the Chequers - we enjoyed it so much three years ago we were keen to have another stay. We used it as a base for visiting the RSPB reserve at Minsmere and other local natural history sites.
It was just as good as we remembered. On this occasion we were upgraded to the self catering suite which offered us a lounge in addition to bedroom and the extra space was a bonus. Good standard of pub grub - great selection of well-kept real ales. The breakfast was brilliant and kept us going all day. Owners Debbie and Ron were excellent hosts and made us feel at home.

Reviewed 21 September 2009

Stayed here for a two night weekend break and were absolutely delighted. Although I booked a double room, we were given a self catering unit which had a separate lounge area and an enormous bathroom. Overall the standard of the facility was excellent. The accommodation is in a purpose built unit separated from the Inn by a walkway of about 50 yds. It is so peaceful, waking up can be a problem, but well worth it to sample the fine traditional English breakfast. Both evenings of our stay we dined at the Chequers where we found the menu to give a really good choice and the food to be of fine quality. I must also mention the draft beer - well worth a visit just for the selection and quality.
We would recommend this Inn to any couple or family looking for a good quality B&B in Suffolk offering excellent value for money.
