Customer Rating: Mrs Johnson, Wisbech Great deal

Customer Rating: Mr Mullenger, Horncastle

Customer Rating: Mr Haywood, Brentwood My wife and I stayed at the hotel for one night and ate in the restaurant, drank in the bar and had breakfast in the morning. Overall we have a very enjoyable stay. We booked through Great Little breaks and would do so again. The deal we had included Chocolates in the room worth £5.00 (They weren't) but who cares. A free bottle of Prosecco, which we had a choice of enjoying in our room or with the meal. We chose to have it in our room and it was bought up in an ice bucket (nice little touch). Also a three course meal in the restaurant. There was a £5.00 supplement for the stake, which we opted for but was worth it. We had drinks at the table and in the bar after and put them on the room bill, which I paid in the morning and was pleasantly surprised that I wasn't being ripped off. There was a loud humming noise from the generator in the kitchen that I could hear clearly in the room, which I asked reception about and was told that it would go off around 9:00 pm, which it did. Unfortunately, what they didn't say was that it would come on again at around 06:00 am, which woke me up but who want's to sleep in anyway? Breakfast had most things that one could want but lacked a choice of cereal, not having a muesli, so instead of being healthy we had a fry up for a change; well we were on a break! All in all I would stay again.

Customer Rating: Mr Storey, Norwich

Customer Rating: Mrs Manning, Welwyn Garden City The hotel lacks attention. A few small touches could really make a difference. Our meal was a very poor standard. Staff did there best to apologise but these issues should not have occurred and let the hotel down. The hotel is a perfect location to explore beautiful Suffolk

Customer Rating: Miss Warman, Bedford The staff were amazing, very hard working and attentive. Hotel was a little tired but very clean, and for what we paid for the break it made it fantastic value for money.

Customer Rating: Mr Elkerton, Lowestoft The hotel is a little dated, however, the level of customer service and other facilities were excellent. Restaurant provided excellent choice, good prices, really good quality food.

Customer Rating: Mr Edwards, Coulsdon The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. It was a very enjoyable break

Customer Rating: Mrs Twigden, St. Neots
