Perfection

Posted 23-Feb-2015
Pros: Almost everything
Cons: We had a problem controlling the heat in our room.
Location: You don't need anything near by. Time here is enough.
We were there to celebrate a wedding and every detail was taken care of. It was perfect.

Great service

Posted 01-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
The staff were first class - attentive, polite, professional. The superior double room was very large and comfortable, but the shower was very small. Decor was OK, but will need refreshing soon. By and large, the room was very clean. Being woken at 5am by the dustcart right outside our room wasn't welcome!! Breakfast was excellent - loads of choice and good quality ingredients. Dinner is expensive (even the table d'hote menu) and for the price, not quite as good as I'd expect.

Gem on the outskirts of Ipswich

Posted 21-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
Delightful building and surroundings, beautifully quiet but only a stone's throw away from Ipswich, attentive staff and will definitely book again. Superior Room had all that one would need for an overnight stay, being warm and cosy with original features such as exposed beams.

One night stay

Posted 25-Oct-2014
Pros: Lovely location and setting.
Cons: WiFi in the room - non existent.
Rooms pleasant, clean, and nicely furnished. Staff generally were good and attentive. Bar food was good and an enjoyable breakfast but the hotel seemed not to be that used to (well behaved) children. WiFi did not work in the room, worked fine in the lounge but was frustrating. I was informed the "box" probably needed to be rebooted in the morning nonchalantly by a member off staff after querying the service for the second time - who then tried to blame the weather for the lack of service...

Peaceful, relaxing and first class accommodation

Posted 21-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
An absolutely splendid imposing Grade 1 listed Elizabethan Manor House, complete with considerable Georgian additions and Stuart interior embellishments this is such a wonderful place to stay. Peaceful, restful, closely surrounded by beautiful grounds and in 175 unspoilt acres of rolling Suffolk countryside. Our room was large and spacious, pleasantly furnished and all facilities were first class. Attention to detail and to our comfort was assured. Extremely comfortable bed and quality bathroom accessories. Breakfast was served most efficiently, food was plentiful, tasty and with a wide choice on the menu. Freedom to use the many historic rooms and, in our case, to walk the grounds in perfect summer weather was an additional bonus. The whole experience on our first stay at this lovely venue was one of calm, friendly and efficient professionalism from all the staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and shall most certainly return.

Upstairs Downstairs.

Posted 18-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
We found it a bit O.T.T. regarding the service in the Dining Room so not very relaxing. We felt the food was overpriced and the quality didn't match up.We opted for meal in the Library one night which was a bit of a disaster nobody knew we were there our order took for ages, food was ok. We have stayed in less priced hotels and been happier. Our room wasn't serviced one night we had to go and ask for more milk for the tea tray, and biscuits weren't replaced at all, found that a bit irritating considering the price. The staff were all very professional and obliging. Some of the general rooms need sprucing up.

Rooms were lovely but so hot an stuffy, even with the windown open. Barely slept and told reception staff member but she couldn't have cared less!
