Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2012

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in May after being highly recommended by a friend. Heading to the venue with high expectations we were immeasurably humbled to not only experience a warm and friendly welcome but an all round fantastic stay.

Throughout our visit the staff were extremely polite and helpful and the rooms clean and thoughtfully decorated. We also decided to eat in the restaurant on both nights and were pleasantly surprised to experience such a high quality dinning experience. The menu on offer had a delightful range of dishes which would easily cater for all needs. The service was again both of a high standard and personable - a nice touch for a clearly very popular and busy restaurant.

Despite our often frequent requests for little things here and there the manager Richard was always around to sort out any issues and clearly put in a lot of effort to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Milsoms hotel certainly lived up to the good reputation that preceded it and I would highly recommend it as a choice of venue for anyone who wants to get away and enjoy the Suffolk/Essex countryside.

It was for my husbands birthday we went here and had a meal all was ok with our starters, then our mains came my husband had fish and seafood pie which he said was nice, I had pork it seemed fine until I started eating it and found a big hair under the food . This put me off instantly and spoilt our meal completely they offered me another meal but I refused as I had totally lost my appetite ,they took my meal off the bill and offered us complimentary coffee or drink but we declined their offer ,paid our bill and left ,will never go back there again we also noted there were a lot of flies in the restaurant area most off putting indeed

Lovely setting and well appointed but on each occassion i've stayed and dined I've been left flat by the whole experience. It gives an air of efficiency and convenience for the hotel rather than the guest. Service is practial rather than memorable. Its fine really but thats about all. Its a holiday inn express in the country really.

The restaurant has very lively atmosphere. Menu is very varied and plenty of daily specials. Food is superb and service excellent. Tables are good size and not too close together. We were visiting area from Sweden and went with friends so could enjoy terrific meal and chat at same time. Wonderful experience”
