Good Hotel Guide Review

An overhaul in 2016 by the small Chestnut Inns group has re-energised this large, red-brick Victorian hotel on a road leading to town. Spacious bedrooms are well decorated in a soothing, muted palette; modern bathrooms have stylishly retro fittings. Each room is different: one has a sofa in a bay window overlooking the garden; another has a walk-in wardrobe; yet another, a family suite, sleeps four. Rooms facing the garden are quietest. Order a cocktail in the fashionably moody bar before sitting down to ambitious offerings (perhaps sea trout, crispy grapes, razor clams) in the handsome restaurant. To watch the kitchen team at work, book the backstage Chef’s Table for a tasting menu. In good weather, the large, south-facing terrace is the place to eat, drink and make merry. Sister outfit The Packhorse Inn is in Newmarket (see main entry).
