Good position in town
Posted 29-Nov-2016 on Hotels
It was the most un-friendly arrival I have ever encountered. On arrival one walks into the 'pub' where a few people were gathered and football match blaring on the TV. No-one looked up to offer directions to the 'reception' which turned out to be a cubby hall at the back of the building. We wandered around looking for 'someone' and eventually came back to the 'pub' and asked the barmaid who then directed us to the back of the building. She then came and checked us in, or took our payment. This place has a smell of cooking, old frying fat. The rooms were adequate but no charm at all, during the night there were weird noises from within the fabric of the building, maybe it was shaking in horror? Breakfast was better mainly due to Wendy who took our orders and is a friendly soul, the service is one similar to a Victoria Wood comedy, but without Julie Walters to make it humorous. The best feeling I had was on leaving when the cleaning staff arrived and were normal and friendly. This place has no atmosphere and is expensive for what it offers, very little. This is a pub with rooms which I had expected but with zilch charm. Pity as it is in a lovely suffolk square and accompanying town.
