We got married at SbN back in 2009 and decided to go back for our 7th anniversary. We booked up on the gourmet getaway package which is very good value. We booked into our room and wondered down to the golf bar and had lunch on the patio whilst watching the golfers tackle the par 3 across the water. The...

We had the pleasure of staying here for a 60th Birthday Surprise, in a comfortable, clean and spacious room that overlooked the golf course. Friendly, welcoming and attentive staff made the weekend one to remember. This could only be topped by the delicious dinner in the Lakes Restaurant and the first class breakfast in the morning. Although a small buffet...

When I lived in Nayland, we used to visit the Stoke-by-Nayland hotel for snacks or meals quite frequently. In fact, my daughter was married there, and it was wonderful.
