Res Bar 2

We have a good reputation as a quality venue within East Anglia and our location makes us the ideal base for weekend breaks. We are well served by the A14 (two junctions being approximately 5 minutes fronm the hotel) and together with our free parking we are an ideal base for midweek stopovers, residential conferences and meetings.

We are a privately owned and operated hotel and as part of Best Western Hotels, you get the best of both worlds. Open to both residential and non-residential guests the hotel offers a very warm and personal welcome to all of its visitors.

We pride ourselves in our customer service and our staff are encouraged to look after your every need. Our commitment to a high attention to detail is key to your comfort and well being.

We invite our guests to enjoy our secret gardens, a fitting backdrop to your wedding, celebratory event or just for a glass of wine before dinner in our Garden Room.

On behalf of the management and staff, we look forward to welcoming you to our hotel.
