2/10 Poor

Unworthy of 4 star rating or current room rate. More like a third rate B&B than 4 star hotel. Entrance lobby and reception were shabby, cluttered and smelled of cigarette smoke. Carpets dirty and worn. Our rooms were badly decorated , dated, shabby and full of old, mis matched cheap furniture . Bathroom looked like it had been tiled by a child . Grout around toilet and bath was stained and unfinished. No handrails but broken towel rail had obviously been used as a grab rail for sometime. Bathroom door didn’t close. One of our rooms had steps in and out of bathroom but no handrails . Sloped roof meant there was limited headroom over the bed . Food was good but dining room had poor lighting/ no bulbs. Tables shabby, sticky . General lack of ambience . Bar was cluttered with old fashioned leather seats and it was noisy- not a comfortable space. One of the worst places I have stayed in . The only saving grace of the Bell at Sax was the young and pleasant staff who tried their best to help guests.

8/10 Very good

Very expensive for the type of property. Seemed short staffed, as most hospitality places are currently. Staff were good. Breakfast very good. Biggest issue was the lack of sound proofing, meant we could hear upstairs guests walking and multiple TVs . Still keeping to the "traditional" throwaway hotel culture.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and food delicious. The windows are single glazed and road noise audible. Overall the hotel feels tired but the staff and food made it a pleasant stay.

Lovely staff, great location to visit many places around Suffolk such as Aldeburgh and Southwold, but not as busy.
