My husband and I stayed at the Randolph during the Easter long weekend, we were very pleasantly surprised by it. Obviously we'd seen from other reviews on TripAdvisor that this was a great place but it's always good when you see it in person! We arrived early, but they were still able to accommodate us. I'm gluten intolerant and I...

My wife and I just drove to Southwold without booking anything; and came across this hotel through Tripadvisor. We ate in the restaurant and both ordered a ribeye steak cooked medium rare. It was cooked perfectly, which is a bit of a rarity these days. Great breakfast and really nice to see poached smoked haddock and fresh kippers, which we...

An overnight stop while touring the Suffolk Coast. Warm, clean, friendly. Unpretentious menu with good portions and attentive service. Entrance from rear car park isa little dowdy but don't be deterred - things look up as soon as you're inside!

Dear 45378 Thank you for your lovely review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Our car park area has been tidied up immensely with all new gravel - we couldn't afford to tarmac the entire site, but pleased that you liked the inside of the hotel once you had arrived.

Great historic hotel - ideal for us on a B&B tour around the coast - good value for money - excellent food and right in the heart of Southwold, close to everything you would need for an enjoyable short break stay.

Stayed at the Randolph (originally built by the Adnams Brewery) on business. It's a combination Hotel, Conference Venue, restaurant and Pub. It's a good place to stay - the food was good, the beer is Adnams, breakfast was excellent (kippers always a treat). My only (small) gripe is that the sound proofing between rooms isn't up to modern hotel standards...
