“Four star hotel on the market square in lovely seaside Southwold. Contemporary comfort complements traditional charm in the rooms, some with sea views. The award winning restaurants offers French fare and is popular across town. A great base for a seaside holiday with the family. ”

Hotel Review

On Sunday mornings, the welcoming drawing room is full of newspapers, coffee and chat, and the sun, when it shines, pours in from the market square. Most of the inviting bedrooms look on to the square (the largest) or out to sea, though there are some garden rooms grouped around a former bowling green. It is owned, with the nearby Crown, by Adnams Brewery, and well run by professional, helpful staff.
