We arrived on a Thursday afternoon to be greeted by Mark and his new member of staff, a young and enthusiastic addition to the Kings Head team. We were booked into Room 1, a fairly spacious room with old furniture but a new bed with spotlessly clean sheets and cover. The building is old and therefore can give the feeling...

Our first weekend away since our son was born, nearly 2 years ago. Southwold our first choice as been many times before but usually stay in the Premier Inn at Lowestoft. We arrived on the Fri afternoon and were shown to our room. As we were led upstairs the first thing we noticed was the colour of the carpet, it...

Southwold is let down by this dreadful hotel. Its grimey, overpriced and lacks the appropriate customer service skills to ensure a pleasant and welcoming experience, vital in this industry. Best avoided.

We stopped by for lunch on a busy Friday and wheras we would usually go to a good pub such as the Lord Nelson we thought we would try somewhere different. Should have taken the hint as there were few other people in the pub it might not be brilliant. I ordered a pint of Adnams Broadside - bearing in...

One should have had followed ones reservations from the outset. Last minute booking, a relatively reasonable rate for Southwold, what could possibly go awry? We were optimistic. It became apparent upon entering the room that even a nightly rate of £85.00 does not include basic housewifery skills. Filth on every surface. Clearly the management think that because of the location...

We booked a room here as everywhere else in Southwold was full.As the rates were cheap for this area we were not expecting the Ritz , just a basic clean room to spend the night.On arrival we were met by a somewhat grumpy manager who showed us to the room.The carpet was so old parts were thread bare and had...

I stayed at his hotel last week. I was surprised at how dirty the room was. I made a point of asking for it to be cleaned but it didn't get much better. Not only was the room dirty but the carpets on the stairs was filthy and the staff didn't seem to notice. It is in a handy location...

Stayed at this hotel with a friend. The owner was very helpful, despite being very busy in the restaurant and managed to sort us a room very last minute. The rooms look tired and in need of decoration but the beds were comfortable enough. Good breakfast in the morning.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last Saturday evening. Firstly we arrived 20 minutes early and were told the room wasn't ready which was fair enough but when we did get shown to it I was amazed that it was nothing like the lovely pictures that appeared on their website. Bed was clean but the carpet in the...

Had a single night's stay booked through laterooms for our anniversary but received a call on the Monday before we were due to stay to say there had been a mistake and the room was not available.
