Over and above expected service.

Stayed here in Dec 2019 for 1 night as had a meeting early next morning nearby. Was able to train it as the hotel is 5 min walk from Needham Market Station. The room was spotlessly clean and warm, the bed was super comfortable. Had a meal in the bar (Steak and ale pie was great) and a couple of pints of IPA. I had to leave next morning early (before the chef started) so the owner came in early and made us both a bacon sandwich whilst we had a natter - He even dropped me off at my meeting because Taxi's were all pre-booked locally. Great place, lovely owners, clean & warm, great food, great beer- Thanks Neil!

Filthy, quite the worst hotel I have ever been in.

WE booked a “superior” room at the limes this weekend 7th/8th. On arrival there was no one in reception or in the bar for us to register. After waiting for 10minutes and ringing the bell multiple times we ventured outside through a fog of cigarette smoke generated by the receptionist. We were then taken to what was described as “one of the best rooms” No5. We were concerned straight away as the communal areas of the hotel were filthy (photos attached). The room was not superior in anyway, no view out of the windows, no king sized bed that we booked. The bed didn’t even have a headboard. It was a double room and yet only contained one thread bare chair and one bed side cabinet and once again filthy. The constant humming / droaning noise in the background was a constant annoyance. We would have complained but on leaving the hotel for the evening once again no staff were present. (Or on our return). In the morning we could not shower as there was no hot water. Due to the filth we could not bring ourselves to eat in the hotel and left. Again not able to complain or speak to anyone as no staff present. I’ve included photos of the dust, mould, god knows what on the phone. This is filthy hole with staff who dont care, please dont waste your money staying here.
