We booked after searching on line for somewhere to stay near Beccles and what a good choice Carlton Manor turned out to be. Booking by telephone was simple and fast thanks to Jo being very efficient and helpful, as she was when checking us in the next day and then showing us to the room. In the public areas the décor was very impressive - modern, stylish and comfortable without being too much. Our room was equipped to good, contemporary standard with a good sized TV (often much too small these days), tea and coffee tray, huge bed and excellent bathroom with bath and shower, all very modern and sleek.
Dinner in the main restaurant, Vitis, was controlled by Russell who, like Jo, takes his role very seriously as demonstrated by his warm, friendly manner and great attention to detail. Our waitress (I am sorry that I did not get her name) was equally friendly and efficient. Our meal was very good and the wine suggested by Russell, excellent. The menu is not huge but good for such a small hotel. We spent a comfortable and quiet night and the next day enjoyed a full English breakfast (not included).
In the past we have paid much more for a lot less and have certainly had very much poorer service from apparently 'better' hotels. The staff make a good hotel great and the team here certainly do a fantastic job of that. We will definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending Carlton Manor to friends.
