Customer Rating: Mrs Humberstone, Clacton-On-Sea Lovely staff at this hotel they were really friendly and accommodating with us and our dog. Food was excellent and a very good choice for the evening meal. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and the freshly cooked omelette was delicious. Central for a visit to Bury St Edmunds. Will definitely be making a return visit.
