This hotel is a real treasure. I haven't had the opportunity to stay within the main building but have spent a few very pleasent breaks in one of the garden terrace rooms.
The rooms are modern, clean, elegant, quite spacious, well equipped and comfortable.
There are various "personal touches" about the place - like the recommended viewing from the DVD library that's available - which make it very obvious that the hotel's owner (Ruth Watson of TVs The Hotel Inspector/Country House Rescue) views the establishment as a labour of love rather than a business. It feels every bit the brain child of a lady with a passion for hospitality.
The hotel itself is quite small, cosy and very comfortable with a lovely ambiance - the open fire on a cold December evening was a lovely touch. It is also located a stone's throw from the incredible Orford Castle, which makes for an intriguing and enjoyable visit.
The food in the restaurant was absolutely incredible - a feast for the eyes as well as the belly and a creative display of culinary genius more than just a meal.
But what really made the trip for us was the staff - one waiter in particular was an exceptional host and always carrying a giant, genuine smile, but all were friendly, efficient and helpful
We would definitely recommend this place and will almost certainly be returning again.
