This attractive hotel is situated in a South West suburb of Ipswich and was once a 16th century hunting lodge. It is surrounded by 9 acres of parkland and built on the bank of a brook. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The excellent leisure club features a heated indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The oak panelled Jacobean restaurant serves a la carte food and fine wines.
The surroundings/grounds of the hotel were beautiful, a lovely setting and the reception were polite and helpful. Sadly the hotel looked a little tired and needed a face lift. Difficult to find especially in the dark after being stuck on the M25 for over 3 hours. Breakfast average but tea made in the mug (no teapots or cups) not very nice. Wouldn't stay there again.
We went to Blaxhall village for building our family Tree and went back to 1789.
