Booked in for a one night stay for husband's birthday, as on route to watch motor racing at Snetterton in Norfolk. We were very lucky- we only booked a couple of days in advance, but as they didn't have a wedding booked for the weekend, they had rooms available.
First lovely surprise was on arrival- what a beautiful building! Now, although I love old buildings, I'm never keen on the idea of sharing the room with any previous tenants e.g ghosts (spirits should only be behind the bar, as far as I'm concerned!), so was relieved to find that the accommodation is provided in new buildings in the grounds. Second lovely surprise was that we'd been upgraded to a suite. Despite it being a hot day, the room was lovely and cool, which was just as well, or the yummy homemade biscuits provided may have melted!
We had a lovely meal in the bar area,having been offered a choice of menus. The staff, particularly Abbi, were extremely helpful and accommodated our request for an early breakfast with no problem.
Although not a fault of the staff, when we booked into the Inn my partner and myself were informed that there was no record of us or our arrival date. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your view, a room was available for us. Reflecting upon our experience it might have been better if all the rooms had been booked, then we would have looked for more comfortable accommodation. There was little comfort in our room and the breakfast was merely adequate, it was only because we had already arranged to meet friends in Halstead that we stayed there.

Staff really friendly and nice size clean rooms with en suite bathroom
