Situated in a charming, sleepy little Suffolk village just a 20-minute drive from the coast, this smart and long-established hotel with an excellent restaurant offers immaculate, comfortable rooms, good service and food, and for such reasons understandably enjoys a good rate of repeat guests. Features such as stripped floorboards, candles and open fires help create a cosy atmosphere. The Vi-Spring beds with their crisp linen sheets ensure a good night's sleep. There's a terrace for al fresco eating and drinking, as well as a bar, restaurant and lounge areas. It's a great base for exploring a delightful corner of this beautiful county.



There's so much on the doorstep, from great village and countryside walks to good restaurants, pubs and cafés.
