Long Melford is in a beautiful part of the country and the Black Lion is ideally situated for sightseeing in the area. We spent two nights here. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The chef is very talented and we had super meals both evenings. However the hotel is in serious need of refurbishment. It has been tastefully and...

From the outset you're greeted with flaking paint and walls. Check in was efficient and bags taken to room. Inside it is very dated and in need of serious, serious update - complete re-furb actually. Promised Prosecco on arrival. No show. Room? Threadbare carpet, bathroom not been painted etc in 10 years. Toilet flush needed cranking to work. A lovely...

The staff were very helpful and very polite, after a quick look around the foyer i soon realised that the hotel was terribly...

Absolutely agree with several other reviews - the decor could do with a bit of TLC but everything else is spot on. The food is excellent, we had a bar lunch on arrival and two dinners. All outstanding. Breakfasts are individually cooked and delicious. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. Loads of personality. The area is great for exploring with...

Food is great, service is spot on, very friendly and welcoming staff too. You definitely get what yo pay for with the food, can't fault it. Only down side is the decor puts me in mind of a nursing home, really does need a little attention on that front. Other than that, can't fault it!

We stayed at the Black Lion on a secret escapes offer, having never been to Long Melford before we were pleasantly surprised at the gorgeous setting. The hotel staff were welcoming. The rooms were very characterful, albeit a bit tired, we stayed in room 6 which was very spacious and had a 4 poster bed, looked beautiful but was extremely...

I have a family friend that resides close to this hotel so when we visit her, we normally chose to stay here. The staff is very friendly and always looks after us well, especially during breakfast or dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food offered there is delicious and with many wonderful choices to choose from. The rooms are clean...

We stayed at the Black Lion for three nights recently, we had originally booked for two nights but were enjoying ourselves so much that we stayed longer. The room was beautiful and very comfortable and the staff exceptionally helpful (particular mention to Varinder, Demi, Gemma, Carol and Roberto but all were good). The food was excellent, high-quality and beautifully presented...
