I popped in for a quick pint, it looked cosy. People had had dinner. I waited 5 minutes, there was nobody behind the bar. It was 12.15 11.1.17 Exasperated I left. Wonder what it's like? It may be a one off. I popped into the Cardinals hat next door, what a dump.

I stayed here for two weeks while working away and would have given it 5 stars if the rooms were slightly better. The rooms are tidy and quirky due to the age of the building but could do with an update. Breakfast and evening meals were amazing and affordable i ate there every night, the bar prices are good to...

This Hotel is fine for an overnight stay. Right in the centre of Harleston. Their car park takes some finding though. Room comfortable. With a four poster bed. Room we had was overlooking the main street, but after about 11.00 pm there was not nosie. Hotel is rather full of "Tripping Hazards" although we were warned about these, not good...

I arrived after dark and it took ages to find the place. No real signage outside and the sign they did have was really faded. Then you enter and find a sign saying if reception is unmanned please go to the bar. Well I can tell you reception hasn't been manned for some time. It was a dumping ground! I...

A centuries old inn, this felt like a local pub with rooms, that has seen better days. Full of timbers and beams, and wonderfully 'wonky'. It was nice to meet Robin and all the staff. We had quite a long wait for someone to attend to reception, as it seemed there were not enough staff. They also had us confused...
