Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in Suffolk

From the Anglo-Saxon treasures of Sutton Hoo to the strong maritime heritage in Ipswich and along the coast, Suffolk has a rich history waiting to be explored. Alongside a choice of museums and beautiful historic houses, which open to the public, visitors to Suffolk can also stay in a historic hotel during their visit. From bed and breakfast in a traditional old village pub to a luxury boutique stay in a Victorian rectory, you'll find historic hotels in Suffolk will enrich your experience with a little extra hands-on history right in your room!

The Best Historic Hotels in Suffolk

If you're visiting the arts and music Latitude Festival, held each year in July in Southwold, staying in a historic building can transform your stay from the ordinary to something quite memorable. Or maybe you want to end a visit exploring ancient Bury St. Edmunds Abbey or the 18th century Italianate palace at Ickwsorth with a stay in a hotel of notable interest. One thing you can be sure of is that the facilities offered at your Suffolk historic hotel won't be ancient. While they might be housed in old buildings and include period pieces and antiquities amongst the furniture, facilities such as WiFi, en-suite bathrooms, room service, dining options and comfortable beds ensure they meet the rigorous demands of 21st century travellers. Other amenities, such as tennis courts, a sauna and meeting rooms might also be available, as historic hotels tend to offer more superior accommodation to standard hotels.

Suffolk for Historic Hotels

Many historic hotels in Suffolk are not just housed in old buildings, but are located within the historical part of their town. From these convenient locations it's easy to explore and discover the past secrets of an area and enjoy seeing the historic sites nearby. Whether you're travelling as a couple and are looking for somewhere special to stay or are in Suffolk on business but are looking for a more characterful stay, the choice of historic hotels in Suffolk won't disappoint.
