“Great place for a short break!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Satis House is a lovely small hotel in a great location. very very friendly and attentive staff.

couple of small criticisms, we stayed in the Orangery room which is lovely, however water pressure is quite poor from the taps and the shower. it was miserable weather and all i wanted was a bath, but by the time the water had turned lukewarm I gave up and had a shower! also the side of the bed nearest the mirror was a bit tired and the springs had gone.

so two very small criticisms, apart from that all as great. breakfast was gorgeous!

we stayed on Saturday and wanted to go out to eat but everywhere was booked up, would reccomend booking in advance.

all staff were fab, and the breakfast was lovely. they even got me beans although they were not on the menu :-)

From the moment you walk through the door at Satis house you are made to feel welcome! The staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgable in the food and wine. We were shown jt our table once our starters were ready - the Asian platter is to die for! We both followed with the belly pork which was simply stunning and the creme brûlée served flambé at the table finished off a perfect meal perfectly! Well done Satis house 10/10 again and always thoroughly recommended by us!!

We stayed at Saris House for a couple of days with a group of twenty friends on a walking trip. Saris House oozes style and the food was quite superb. Service was as good as it gets and a model for other hotels to follow. The owners were very visible and always happy to help. Our bedroom was quite small but very cosy and comfortable. This is a perfect hotel for visiting Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and the region.

Myself and my husband have recently returned from a weekend break at Satis House. This is a truly stunning hotel and I couldn't find fault with one single thing, infact I didn't want to leave!! Both David, Kevin and all of their staff are polite, helpful, friendly, professional and nothing is to much trouble for them. On first impressions you instantly get that "wow" factor and I have to say it continued throughout our stay, the rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean, modern and comfortable. The food was amazing and well worthy of awards, the restaurant was packed on both evenings and that says alot about the service and the food, likewise the breakfast was 1 of the best we had ever tasted, the produce was of very high quality and cooked to perfection.
I was more than a little star struck meeting both David and Kevin after they had appeared and won "Four in a bed" but they were both so lovely and friendly and were happy to have their photo taken with me too. Every single guest is treated with the greatest respect and made to feel special, just what you need for a lovely weekend away. We will without a doubt be returning, even though for us the journey is approx 4.5 hours but it is very much worth it. I cannot speak highly enough of this place and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and everyone. The Satis House is certainly a little piece of heaven......

Room Tip: We stayed in The Orangery which was totally gorgeous, very quiet and plenty of space.

We stayed in a superior double room and it certainly was! Beautifully decorated and appointed. The hospitality tray included a teapot and a cafetiere AND fresh milk in a flask in the mini fridge. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them.
There is no lift but the stairs were easy to climb and our cases were taken up for us.
The food was excellent!
We shall definitely return.

I've just read the last review and am sitting in our beautiful 'pod' (may well be the same one described) and I cannot believe they are talking about the same place?!?!
This place is heaven. From the moment you walk in, you're treated like VIPs and if you're returning, then you're treated like long lost friends (who happen to also be VIPs).
I can't think of a single negative about Satis house hotel I really can't.
This is our 4th visit here and we thought we'd try one of the garden pods having tested out the fabulous main house rooms previously. We weren't disappointed.
The room (garden pod) Blythburgh is simply beautiful. A huuuuuge bed and super comfy. The room is as clean as a whistle and the bathroom is modern and well designed.
I'm sat on said huuuuuge comfy bed right now looking out on to the sunny walled garden and thinking how idyllic it is.
I loved the walk to the main house for our delicious breakfast, and used the well appointed (and lit at night) footpath, but had I have chosen to walk accross the fresh, dewy manicured grass to breakfast I would have simply enjoyed nature at it's finest!
The food was, as ever, inventive, well presented, and delicious.
The service, is completely faultless and David and Kevin are total sweethearts.

It depends what ticks your box I guess, but if you love a stunning location, fabulous food, beautiful bedrooms and the feeling that your visit was both appreciated and welcome then head to Satis house ASAP! X

Following other reviews we looked forwarded immensely to our 4 day break at what was according to others a wonderful hotel. How disappointed we were. Our room was in what was described as a 'Pod and the Southwold room.' at the bottom of the garden, this was accessed across a lawn which meant wet feet from the dew on the lawns as there were no footpaths and very little lighting, unless one walked the perimeter of the walled garden. Cleanliness was an issue as sleeping on mattresses that don't have protectors on is disgusting. I do not want to share bodily fluids from other guests !!! From a hygiene point of view protectors on pillows and mattresses are an essential not a luxury. Pillows were flat and not supportive at all, I was delighted I had the foresight to take my own, also the bed was like a hammock, having a hole in the middle. We had the usual drinks available in the room and fresh milk was a good point, however we ate the biscuits on day one and neither these nor the toiletries were replenished. Breakfast was fine for my husband who stated the full English was good. I was left with the remnants of fresh fruit and when I asked for porridge was given a bucket full.
The evening menu was not very inspiring for someone staying four nights, there were only 5 choices of main course and to have only one fish dish available so close to the coast is unbelievable. I feel this restaurant catered to ' local' people out for the night, but for someone staying 4 nights was way over priced and as stated restricted in choice.
Service on the other hand was good, prompt and efficient. The owner David, was very friendly and charming. All in all we feel it is trying to be something that it isn't, it is neither a country house hotel nor is it a boutique hotel and sadly lands somewhere in the middle. I do feel with very little effort and some thought as to people staying for a while, rather than out for the night, this could be a much better establishment. The house itself was historically very interesting.
