We stayed in the building itself, of which we thought we would be grateful as it was a windy night. However, we were supposed to be in one of their 'better' rooms so I wonder what the 'standards' were like. Although clean, the paint was marked, and the room was tiny. The floor in the room above was rather noisy....

This is what all small hotels should be like. We stayed here as a couple 2 years ago, and we're keen to visit again. We came on a special offer for 2 nights and brought friends this time. I can't understand what some of the reviews have said about staff, because as far as we were concerned, they couldn't have...

My fiancé and I stayed at the hotel in mid-February and took advantage of the hotel’s birthday offer for £139 per person which included bed, breakfast, 3 course meal and a glass of champagne. After reading on Trip Advisor we upgraded ourselves to a Better room rather than a Good room which comes with the offer. The hotel was fantastic,...

We went for dinner and weren't disappointed. There are two dining areas and we chose the one at the front of the building: wood floors, scrubbed refurbished kitchen tables, gleaming glassware,mood lighting and a log fire in the inglenook. A matter of taste but we liked it. Service good and the food was of a very high quality. The sort...

A three-night break, taking advantage of a special rate including a three-course dinner. Good location for visiting a variety of Suffolk sites/sights: Minsmere RSPB reserve, Dunwich, Blythburgh, Southwold and Aldeburgh. Our 'Better' room (Swallow - they are all named after birds) in the annex was a reasonable size, warm, clean and well-equipped - comfortable bed, and en suite with bath...

Having previously stayed at the Tuddenham mill I thought the Westleton Crown would be of a similar standard as it is owned by the same group so booked a suite and dinner for a Valentine's treat for my wife. We arrived around 3pm on the 13th of February to be told our room was not yet ready. Although check in...

A lovely welcoming Hotel with real fires and and excellent dining. The perfect place to return to after exploring the Suffolk winter coast. The bar sells world champion Copper Housegin and fever tree tonic. To die for.

Rooms are categorised Good, Better, Best. We had Better which was fine but no better than you would expect in any decent standard hotel, so glad we didn't go for Good.Comfortable bed, pillows, fluffy towels with tea, coffee, biscuits included in room. Many rooms are in separate buildings where the sound proofing could be better.....showers/toilet flushing next door clearly audible....
