Best luxury and boutique hotels in Suffolk

Hotels, B&Bs, country houses, inns, restaurants with rooms

Get refreshed with a visit to Suffolk – a county full of style and captivating history. A hotel break could see you taking a trip to quaint Flatford, captured by the painted John Constable, or Framlingham Castle, where Mary Tudor waited to see if she would be queen. Ickworth and Helmingham have beautiful gardens – or if you fancy a flutter then Newmarket is home to two race courses and 5,000 race horses.

Former coaching houses and converted mills are included in GHG’s 18 luxury and boutique hotels in Suffolk, all offering excellent accommodation. During your stay, wander around quaint Southwold and its pier and visit the seaside town of Aldeburgh, which prides itself on having the best fish and chip shop in the country. Aldeburgh also hosts a classical musical festival, founded by the composed Benjamin Britten, which sees innovative performances – even on the beach!
