This hotel is in a beautiful location and has excellent standard rooms, with quality decor finishing particularly in the bathrooms. They're also very big rooms with lots of space. I have forgotten my dinner jacket for a function at the hotel and I must say the staff and the general manager went the extra mile and helped me out by...

The first room offered smelt and there was black mould round the skylight in the bathroom. The carpet was also badly stained. We moaned and was offered a 2nd room which we were not happy with. At this stage I was contemplating driving home again a 115 mile journey. Fortunately there was a third room which the plumber had just...

The ambience is great and a very old pretty setting in the barn restaurant, the layout of the room was nice not being crammed together like some restaurants and the service was excellent from the staff, very attentive and polite. The food was served hot and presentation good, will definitely be back and the price is reasonable. Well worth a...

This Hotel is a gem of a find. I have never been to a hotel where the staff are so attentive throughout our whole 2 day stay. Had a great bonus on Saturday night when attending a Comedy night in aid of Mcmillan Cancer. All 3 comedians were terrific. This hotel has lovely grounds and the rooms are more than...

What a great night, comedians, food & service were excellent, especially as it was in aid of the MacMillan charity, the hotel is like a hidden gem for Lowestoft. We have attended several different functions here including two weddings and we have thoroughly enjoyed them. We can highly recommend the hotel and the function rooms, we hope we have many...

Two night stay in this hotel with beams and thatched roof. The main thing for us was being able to bring our dog, the grounds are excellent for a stroll, with the Oulton Broads being on the doorstep for longer walks. The beach at Lowestoft is dog friendly out of silly season and lovely and clean. The hotel food was...

The hotel consists of one central building containing the restaurant, in an original barn, bar and reception. The 20 rooms are in two groups of single storey buildings nearby. Our newly refurbished room was in the Garden Suite block, a 50yd walk to the restaurant, it was large, clean, well appointed and quiet. The bathroom had both bath and shower,...
